Braised Noodles with minced pork & egg plant ~ 茄子肉碎焖生麵


I was curious when I spotted this Noodle dish on the menu when I dined at  Ee Chinese Cuisine at Eastin Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, recently.  So, to kill everyone's curiosity, why not give this dish a try.  It was delicious and having some egg plants to go with noodles, that's a bit unique to me.  So I attempted to give this a try and well, it was not as good as the one that was whipped up by a chef, but certainly it's good enough to add this to my family's list of homecooked comfort dish.

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen .   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
