Sweet potato flat noodles stir-fry ~ 炒红薯扁面条

 

During  this Covid 19 pandemic, I notice that there are many shops mushrooming in my housing area selling frozen food, meat and an assortment of sauces, noddles etc.  I happened to walk in to one very near to my house and I was looking for Korean vermicelli which was not available.  Instead the salesgirl introduced me to this Sweet Potato Flat Noodles, from Fujian, China which she said was a new arrival.  To help and stimulate the economy I picked up a packet and some other groceries.  The noodles taste somewhat like our 'kway teow' but I notice that it tends to harden a bit once cooled, so best to eat it immediately.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle. I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more! Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish), Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually ,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwr

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.
