马来西亚【辣椒板面】Chili Pan Mee


这个周末下雨,不想出门就做了好吃的虾干辣椒粉, 泼点热油就是辣椒板面的辣子啦!

Almost everybody I met raved about this Pan Mee back home several years ago, Chili Pan Mee shops spring all over KL like mushrooms, I tried this Pan Mee twice and liked the idea very much, it has all the "Ohm" factors that Malaysian liked, spicy, umami with the fragrance of fried shallot. Topped with a beloved half boiled egg. 

It is just irresistible!

【虾干辣椒粉】Dried Shrimp Chili Powder



A few years back I brought two bottles of "Namprik Narok" (which means spicy like hell.) made in Thailand back to the USA. I used it in some of my cooking and liked the spiciness and umami taste a lot. 

The two bottles didn't last me too long and since replenishing from homeland won't be possible due to the pandemic, I did what I thought is the next best thing, I recreate this chili powder at home.

【麻酱糖饼】Sesame Sugar Pancake


I made Beijing Traditional Pastry -- Sugar Puff not long ago and made a mental note to make this Sesame sugar pancake that I also liked. 

I used lesser brown sugar in my pancake, it still tasted very good though!

【芝麻海苔脆饼】Sesame Seaweed Crisps

这款脆饼其实是春节期间做的,当时做了炮竹虾还剩下大半包的春卷皮,刚好家里有寿司紫菜(Yaki Sushi Nori),就做了这款家乡常见的年饼。真是满满年味的小零食呀!

I made Firecracker shrimps for Chinese New Year and was left with more than half a packet of spring roll wrappers, since I also have some Yaki Sushi Nori (Roasted Seaweed) that I bought to make sushi at home. I decided to make this common CNY snacks that I used to have since young. 

It is such a tasty snack that I can't stop eating!

My son's school hours are long, he gets home around 4 pm, often very hungry, so I always make sure there are some snacks to tie him over until dinner time. 

This egg salad sandwich is often my go to, and one of my son's favorites.

【酒酿米发糕】Tapai Rice Huat Kueh



These rice cakes were made using fermented glutinous rice (酒酿)as rising agent, it was made from whole grain rice.

The batter took around 12 hours to ferment naturally at room temperature. There is nothing not to love about this Huat Kueh, it is 100% natural, made the way foods were made hundreds of years ago.

To me, it is almost like a batch of art work, made possible only by ancient wisdoms passed down to us by our ancestors.

【荷叶包】附刈包食谱 Lotus Leaf Buns and Kuah Pau

前几天做了一锅控肉/炕肉, 家里有控肉怎么可以不做刈包呢?于是趁把孩子送上校车后还有三个小时才上班开会的空挡,我做了几个荷叶包。


One thing leads to another, when you have the Kong Bah at home, you need to make lotus leaf buns~~
