Mango with Sago Dessert

I thought that eating the mango like any cut fruits were abit boring so came out with this simple way of eating the indian mango, for the pass 2 weekends Kenny and I (the kids don't like mangoes) have been enjoying the sweet mangoes like this...

2 mangoes – Peel and diced
1/4 - 1/3 cup sago

100ml water } Syrup water
3 tbsp sugar }

1) Boil syrup water and set aside to cool.

2) Bring a pot of water to boil, water should be enough to cover more than 1 inch of the sago when sago is added in. Add sago pearl to boiling water and boil till it become transparent. Drain and rinse over cold water. Set aside.

3) Put some sago in a bowl, add about 3 tbsp sugar syrup to sago, can add abit more per individual taste. Place dice mango on top of sago, best serve with some ice cubes.

Cashew Scottish

I hardly made cookies, unless I have the mood to do it. I think my brain is getting a bit rusty. I made mistake in this recipe. Was thinking that doing double the recipe cos 1 portion may not be enough, the dough end up too soft and I have to pipe out the dough, so I didn't sweep the milk as mention in the recipe. Days later then I realised that I should made the dough portion by portion instead of multiply the original recipe. Recipe from the book Biscuit Code .

120g plain flour (sifted)
2tbsp rice flour (sifted)
125g butter
60g castor sugar
1 egg
1tsp vanilla essence
3tbsp milk
50g grounded cashew nuts
adequate cashew nuts(for decoration)

1. Beat butter, castor sugar and egg till light and fluffy. Add vanilla essence.

2. Fold in sifted ingredients and ground cashew nuts mix to a dough.

3. Cover and chill for 30min.

4. Roll dough in between 2 sheets of grease proof paper, and cut with a cookie cutter.

5. Place cookies on greased baking tray. Sweep with milk.

BBQ Smokey Orange Flavour Pork Ribs

Original recipe was by chef yong. There was no BBQ sauce at home and was rather lazy to make another trip to supermarket, so I replace it with oyster sauce and soysauce, the ribs turn out really yummy with the glaze that I anyhow mix..haha. Next round I will follow the original recipe and see how's the taste like.
