Fried lotus roots box 【炸藕盒】

This Fried lotus roots box was made during the Chinese New Year period, but I didn't have to to write the recipe until now.

The lotus are sliced and stuffed with minced meat then coat with a layer of batter and deep fried, a little high in calorie but it is so tasty.

I think one can indulge a little during the CNY celebration, right?

Shepherd's Purse Wonton 【荠菜馄饨】

Spring is my favorite season for a reason, as soon the the spring date passed and the weather warms up, many of the edible wild plants will appear one after another. 

Shepherd's purse is one of the earliest wild greens to appear in the spring, I always try to spot them before the flower stalks appear, the leaves are much more tender and sweet at this stage.

My favorite way to prepare this greens is to make it into wonton, one thing I look forward to eat every year around this time of the year.

Steamed Fish With Ginger 【姜蓉蒸鱼】

Whole fish needs to be served in Chinese New Year reunion dinner as the Chinese word for fish "鱼“  has the same pronunciation and intonation is the same as 余 (yu) which carries the meaning of plenty or abundance in Chinese.

Thus serving whole fish is the Chinese way of wishing for prosperity and wealth abundant in the year to come!

Pumpkin Steamed Cake 【红枣南瓜发糕】

A few pumpkin plants came from our compost last spring and grew into a very healthy plant that gave us handful of pumpkins. Though the yield is not large but the fruits are very sweet and tasty.

I made a  couple of dishes with my homegrown pumpkin and this Steamed Cake is one of that.

Jelebi 【印度油炸甜甜圈】

I have made a point to make one or two types of Indian sweets every year during the Diwali time in the past years. 

This year, it is Jelebi, a type of sweet similar to funnel cakes, it is just much smaller in size comparing to funnel cake.  It is made by deep-frying the batter in circular shapes and then soaked in sugar syrup until it is all coated with syrup. 

This sweet is particularly popular in the Northern part of Indian. it can be served warm or cold.
