Oreo Cookies ~ 奥利奥曲奇

Here I am taking or rather using a very popular cookie to put inside a cookie.  Believe me, this cookie was a crowd pleaser amongst kids at a recent small gathering.  This cookie is crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside and ready to tuck in after about 10 mins. baking time but of course needs a bit of patience to wait a little while longer for the cookie to cool further.  Can give this a try for the coming Chinese New Year which falls on 10th February 2024!




Oreo Cookies ~  奥利奥曲奇                                       

Ingredients

  • 115 gm vegetable oil OR melted butter (I used oil)
  • 80 gm caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 185 gm plain flour
  • 1/2 teasp baking soda
  • 1/4 teasp salt
  • 9 Oreo cookies, with cream, crushed (110 gm)
  • 1/4 teasp vanilla
Method
  1. Sift flour with baking soda, salt, set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, with a hand whisk, beat oil and caster sugar till creamy.
  3. Break in an egg, beat till well incorporated.
  4. Fold in sifted flour, mix well with a spatula.
  5. Mix in the crushed Oreos thoroughly.
  6. Cover the mixing bowl with cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 mins.
  7. Remove from the fridge, use an ice-cream scoop to scoop up some dough, roll into a ball and place about 2.5 inch apart on a parchment lined baking tray.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C for about 10 mins. when the edges are slightly brown if you want the cookies to be slightly chewy.  If you want crunchy cookies, bake a bit longer, say about another 5 mins. or so.
  9. Yield :  12 cookies, depending on size of your cookies.
Here's wishing each and everyone, a very Peaceful, Healthy and Prosperous Chinese New Year!

Eel soup

This is an ABC soup with a difference.  Yes, there's fish in this soup ..... added a block of eel in it.  Curiosity was what prompted me to cook this soup.  I asked the fishmonger what is the best way to prepare this fish and he said that this eel makes a very tasty soup and I can't agree  more! Sweet and tasty soup with no fishy smell at all! Recipe for Eel Soup Ingredients 350 gm eel 2 carrots, cut into cubes 2 tomatoes,cut into wedges 3 onions, cut into wedges 2.5 lt of water 20  white peppercorns, crushed Seasalt to taste Method Clean up the fish, set aside. Put the water into a pot, bring to a boil and add in the carrots, tomatoes, onions and peppercorns. Simmer for a while and add in the eel. Cover, lower the heat to medium low and let the soup simmer for about 1.1/2 hours. Add salt to taste. Ladle and serve immediately.

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.
