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.

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Ma lai Ko ~ 马拉糕

  Whenever we 'yum cha' in a Chinese dim sum restaurant we never fail to order and try their Ma Lai Ko, which is a brown sugar steamed fluffy sponge cake and what most kids would like to have.  I have been looking for a simple recipe to make this Ma Lai Ko.  Some recipes require a fermented starter dough which will result in streaky patterns in the Ma Lai Ko, some will just go with baking powder and sodium bicarbonate but I chance upon this recipe which requires yeast, baking powder and sodium bicarbonate. I made this on a cool, windy, day and was praying that the batter will rest and proof with bubbles after 2  hours and thankfully it did.  I was very pleased when the cake looked good after I opened the lid of my steamer and the taste was superb, not overly sweet and the texture, nice, soft and moist.  I kept the remaining pieces of 'ko' in a container, at room temperature and they stayed nice and moist even on the third day, maybe because the weather was cool and not
