Pandan Swiss Roll ~  斑兰蛋糕卷

Ingredients
A)  4 egg yolks
      30 gm caster sugar
      20 ml coconut  milk
      10 ml Pandan juice
      30 ml vegetable oil
      50 gm plain flour
      20 gm rice flour
      1/4 tsp Pandan paste
      Pinch of salt
      Kaya or egg jam for filling
B)  4 egg whites
      40 gm sugar
      1 tsp vinegar or 1/2 tsp cream of tartar

Method
  1. Line a 10" x 10" square pan with parchment paper.
  2. Mix egg yolks, sugar, coconut milk, oil, pandan juice and salt with a ball whisk till well incorporated.  Sift in plain flour and rice flour, mix well.  Set aside.
  3. In a clean bowl, whisk egg whites with vinegar till foamy, add in sugar in batches and beat till stiff peaks but not dry.
  4. Fold in 1/2 meringue into the egg yolk mixture, mix well.  Gently pour this into the balance meringue and mix well but not to overmix as the egg whites may deflate.
  5. Slowly pour the mixture into the centre of the prepared pan and using a spatula spread the mixture evenly onto the sides of the pan.
  6. Shake and tap the pan to remove any air bubbles.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 170 deg.C for about 25 mins.  till golden brown.  Touch the centre of the cake and if it's firm and springs back, then it's done.
  8. Remove the cake and give it a few taps on the worktop.
  9. Place the cake on a wire rack.   Place a fresh sheet of parchment paper over the cake and backed with a hard surface, invert it.  Remove the parchment paper from the base of the cake.  Let the cake cool.
  10. Spread kaya filling on the cake, leaving 1 inch from the top and 1/2 inch from the sides.  
  11. Gently roll up the cake guided by the parchment paper, place the cake in a plastic bag and keep refrigerated for a few hours or overnight.
  12. Slice with a serrated knife, serve.

Herbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Gao

H erbal Jelly ~ Gui Ling Ga o literally translated means 'Tortoise Jelly' is one of my family's favourite desserts.  It's much more economical to prepare this at home for you'll need to fork out between Rm 9 to Rm 11 for a bowl of this cooling dessert in any of those herbal tea outlets.  This soothing jelly, served chilled, is supposed to be able to help reduce our body heat, helps to get rid of toxins and is believed to be good for the skin thus culminating a healthier complexion.

Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜焖五花肉

Mui Choy is preserved mustard greens and there are two types, one is salty while the other is sweet.  There are many ways of cooking mui choy with pork belly.  Instead of braising, you can steam it with minced pork but here I am using only the sweet mui choy and I braised the pork belly with it.  This is a flavourful dish and you can serve it with plain rice or plain porridge.

Steamed minced Pork with Mui Choy ~ 梅菜蒸猪肉

This is a homey, comforting dish which you can never find on the menu of a Chinese restaurant.  Perhaps you may find it in an economy rice stall.  There are two types of Mui Choy (梅菜) or preserved mustard, one is salty while the other is sweet and in this recipe, I used the latter.  The Mui Choy lends flavour and aroma to the dish and most often is paired with pork, either minced or pork belly chunks.  In this recipe, the minced meat must be with a bit of fat, otherwise the dish will turn out dry and dense.  Give this a try and see whether you like it or not.
