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?

这款藕盒是今年春节期间做的一道年菜,之后一直瞎忙也提不起劲来写食谱。今天周末有点时间,就把食谱整理一下放到博客里。

炸藕盒非常好吃,香酥的外皮里面裹着脆脆的莲藕,一口咬下去还有浓浓的肉香味。是一道口感味道都很有层次的菜哦!

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.

一年四季里我最喜欢春天了,立春之后天气几乎就是一天天的暖和起来。我家附近的郊野就变得很热闹有趣,有好多的野菜可以挖。

初春我最期待的就是挖荠菜了,刚出土的荠菜非常嫩,挖一袋拿回家做馄饨吃,非常地美味!

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!

我家乡那里吃团年饭时,都必须上一条全鱼,以表达年年有鱼(余)的期望。

虽然出国后我很少蒸全鱼,今年就蒸一条我在马来西亚时经常吃的姜茸蒸鱼,也希望往后我们家可以年年有余。

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.

去年春天的时候我家前院的土里自己钻出几棵南瓜苗,间苗时我只留了一棵,后来长成好大一丛南瓜藤。可能前院的土壤不算特别肥沃,所以后来一共才结了5只南瓜。自己种的南瓜绿色无污染,味道特别甜美好吃。

今天取小半只做南瓜发糕,特别香甜美味。

Sautéed whole Shrimps【油爆虾】



This Shanghainese Sauteed Whole shrimps is one of the dishes that I first learnt online,  I still remember the first time I made it for my family was during Chinese New Year years back.

In conjunction with Chinese New Year this year, I decided to write a post about this dish. It has been years though.


油爆虾是多年前在国外学习时在网上学的一道美食,当时的美食论坛基本只有文字食谱,还没有照片呢!

这道美食后来我毕业回马来西亚之后还在过年的时候给家人做过一次,这几天比较有空,就打算写几个年菜食谱,这道虾因此就上了我们家的餐桌啦~~

Hainanese Chicken Rice 【海南鸡饭】


It has been a long time since I have made this famous Malaysian dish Hainanese Chicken Rice. My friend brought me one free-range chicken from Chinatown in NYC few days ago, I decided to make Hainanese Chicken rice with it and share with her!

好久不做海南鸡饭了,前几天好友从纽约买了一只三黄鸡给我,新鲜的三黄鸡不做海南鸡饭就太浪费了,刚好也发现没完整地写过一个海南鸡饭的食谱,就趁这个机会也整理一下食谱吧!

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. 

过去十年间只要我工作不是特别忙碌,我都会在排灯节(Diwali)前自己做一两种印式甜点过节拜拜用。

今年排灯节前两天刚好我不上班,就做了这款比较复杂的油炸甜甜圈Jelebi。这款甜点材料其实很简单,却是非常难做的一个甜点,两天里我做了三次才算是比较满意了。它的难度在于熬制糖浆的温度和炸圈圈时的手势,完全的纯手艺要求呢!

这道甜点可以冷热两吃,各有各的风味。
