Valarie's Kuih Lapis

Did this cake yesterday night since I have some time and there were lots of eggs in the fridge, so attempt Valarie's kuih lapis again as I have failed doing it twice months ago. This round didn't add prunes as I thought doing a plain will be easier to pass. Lukily the end result was quite ok and all like it..^_^

Pandan flavour mantou

I use this recipe and do a batch of pandan mantou for last weekend's breakfast. While kneading the dough thought that add some flavour to give the bun a twist iso of the plain version thus added a little pandan paste to half portion of the dough, then roll each portion of the dough flat with even thickness and roll it up like swiss roll.

Siew mai

Have not made siew mai for a long while, made some for weekend's dinner per the kids request...

Chicken with burdock soup

Recently the weather is so warm that everyone tend to drink more liquid to curb the heat, so boil some soup to clear the body heat else will fall sick sooner or later. Found this recipe in an old issue of Oriental magazine but instead of stew I boiled the soup.


1 stick burdock
1/2 bird chicken
2 carrot
salt to taste

1. Chop chicken into big pieces and blanch in boiling water.

2. Peel burdock under running tap water then cut into wedges and soak in water. Peel carrot and cut into wedges.

3. Put all ingredients into soup pot, pour in enough water to cover the ingredients (about 2 litre) and bring to boil over high heat, then turn to weak fire and boil for another 1 and half hour. Add salt to taste.

Deep fried prawn paste chicken

My friend told me this brand of prawn paste is nice, its avaliable at wet market and sheng siong supermarket price varies, heard zhi char stall are using this brand too. I have not cook prawn paste chicken for quite a while and found the paste at the market near my office, so bought a bottle and try. The chicken taste good and not as salty as another brand that I've tried.

Its very simple recipe: Marinate half kg wings with 2 tbsp prawn paste, 1 tbsp sugar, some sesame oil for a few hours in fridge. Coat wings with tapioca flour and deep fried till golden brown.
