【红豆年糕】Adzuki Bean Nian Gao



一转眼,虎年已经来到了眼前。今年还是因为疫情没法回乡过年。那就趁这两周工作不太忙的时候做两个年糕过节吧!

往年我一般做的都是我奶奶生前爱做的古法年糕,今年我想了想,就做了这款红豆年糕,也特别香甜美味呢!

It is the time of the year again to celebrate Chinese New Year. Since I am not able to make the trip back home (again) due to the pandemic, I decided to make a few Chinese New Year dishes to celebrate here in the States.

This year, instead of the traditional Niao Gao that I normally made for CNY, I opted for this Adzuki Bean Nian Gao this year, somewhat healthier, and something different.

KEREPEK BAWANG (Onion Chips) 【洋葱螺旋饼】

 


When I was young, I used to snack on this Onion crackers that I bought from stores, and thought that this snack can only be made by factories or bakeries. 

Until one year it was Eid so my classmate and I visited a teacher, we were served a super crunchy and tasty onion crackers, I loved it so much that I asked my teacher where did sher bought it from.

When I was told that it was homemade by the teacher herself... I was amazed and truly impressed. 

It has been more than 25 years since and I have not been able to buy this Kerepek from any stores where I now lived. I decided to try making it at home, it turned out so good that I could not stop snacking on it!

这款洋葱脆饼是我小时候经常买的的零食之一,洋葱的香味越嚼越香,我非常喜欢。我一直以为这是食品厂才做得出来的味道,直到某年开斋节我和同学们去一位马来老师家拜访,老师家的洋葱饼特别好吃,脆脆香香的。

因为太喜欢,就问了老师是那里买的,被告知是老师自己做的之后,我至今仍然记得心里的惊讶和对老师的佩服,心想老师居然还做得出店里买的零食噢!真是太厉害了。

出国定居后,喜欢的家乡零食不再是花钱就购买得到的满足。突然想吃这款洋葱饼了,趁这几天工作不忙,就做了一批,真是好吃得欲罢不能呢!
