Masala Baigan (Spicy Brinjal with shredded coconut)

Cumin Mutton (孜然羊肉)



I never used to prepare mutton at home until hubby developed liking of mutton when he was in Salt lake city for a short project last year. Where one of his colleagues brought him to a place for lamb curry. He came home requesting for mutton curry.

I didn't see mutton when I shopped for groceries last week, but I found this thinly sliced mutton. So I made this Cumin Mutton instead, N finished the whole plate and asked for more!

我们家本来是不吃羊肉的,自从老公上一次到盐湖城出差跟着两个吃荤的同事去吃了两次羊肉咖喱之后,就一直要我给他做一次羊肉。

周末去中国超市没有看见有羊肉块,只找到切得超薄的羊肉片,就买了回来,给他做孜然羊肉。

注:原食谱写于 2009年10月23日。

Hong Kong Style fried Noodle 港式豉油皇炒面




For those who grew up watching Hongkong series (like me), it will be hard not to notice this fried noodle on every Hongkong movie's breakfast table.

I was so curious about its taste that this was the first thing I ordered in the Dim sum place when I first visited Hongkong!

在马来西亚长大的我,可以说是由港剧伴随着长大的,我会说一口流利的广东话除了因为我的第一个男友是香港人外,港剧的熏陶功不可没哦!港剧让人印象最深刻的就是早餐桌上的这个港式炒面加白粥感觉好吃的不得了。

多年以后第一次去香港玩,一下机马上去吃了一个豉油皇炒面加白粥,把我当时的男朋友笑得不行。

Black Sesame Rice Flour Steamed Bun



This pau is really a result of my so-called "creativity" I was craving for some pau for breakfast and after making the fillings, realised that I have only about 1.5 cups of all purpose flour left!

And then I saw this rice flour that I bought long back still well packed, and the wheat germ I could never make enough stuff to exhaust...

To my delightful surprise, this pau turn out so well, yumm!

Braised Chicken Gizzard 卤鸡胗



I love braised food and have a pot of (Chinese) master stock that has been used for 10 years, it gives deep flavors that new stock wouldn't be able to deliver. 

I like to use it to braise eggs, chicken, pork and tofu, Chicken Gizzard is a very good choice for braising too!

我打小很喜欢吃卤菜,尤其是鸡胗这些比较有嚼劲的卤料。后来家里渐渐就不怎么吃内脏类的食材了。

这几天都是我一个人吃饭,想想很久没吃卤鸡胗了,买了盒鸡胗回来用我家的老卤卤好了放到冰箱里。接下来可以热了吃、可以凉拌,也可以炒菜,也算是解决一个人吃饭的好办法喔。

Bread Pudding



Bread pudding is one of my favourite dessert while having guest around... I like to use the oven alot if I am having party at home, and bread pudding comes in perfect in this case, as while I serve hot dish from oven, I could straight away turn the soaked and ready bread pudding in, and once dinner is done, so is my bread pudding!

I could just serve it while it is freshly made, no reheating require... it is simply perfect!

Mang Kuang Pau (Steamed Bun) 沙葛包



My breakfast typically consists of a glass of milk or milo with one Pau (steamed bun) or bagel or a slice of bread.

I like Pau sold at the Chinese supermarket here, this week I decided I should make some healthier version at home. And here it is!

我早饭一般就一杯牛奶加个包子或面包。忙得时候我也买中国超市的包子,很方便。冲冲凉水,盖上微波炉的盖子,微波30秒就好了。

冷冻室里的包子早吃完了,冰箱里还有一只沙葛,趁今天不忙我就做了几个沙葛胡萝卜包子。

Whole Wheat Naan



My bread machine was literally busy everyday for the past few weeks. I use it not only for bread, also chapati dough and naan dough.

It is a perfect tool for making home-made naan, this time I modify the recipe a little, adding whole wheat flour and handful of wheat germ to make it a little healthier.

We liked the out come, and so does our guest!

Healthy Bread (Water Roux Starter)



I am getting better with bread I guess.

Today I decided to make multigrain healthy bread, that was the whole purpose learning to make bread at home actually, to be able to make healthier bread.

Multigrain would be tougher I am sure.... I thus decided to knead the dough longer, and raise the dough at low temperature (inside the fridge) overnight. This way the yeast could work on the dough slowly and will not over ferment and make it sourish.

The result was amazing, the bread turned out so soft and taste heavenly !

Dinner Rolls (Water Roux Starter) 汤种餐包



I bought a bread machine recently. 


I have never made bread before, so I decided to start with something easier, which is dinner rolls to pilot test the machine.


I do not have bread flour at home, so my first batch of dinner rolls are made of all purpose flour.


买了一个面包机,就想先试试功能,不做太复杂的,就做简单的餐包。


家里没有高筋面粉,用的是普通面粉。方子是结合几个高手的,我随手记录一下。
