马来西亚【辣椒板面】Chili Pan Mee

 

辣椒板面好些年前突然席卷吉隆坡甚至全马来西亚,好吃的辣椒板面店如雨后春笋,到处林立。我回国探亲的时候吃过两次,很是喜欢。

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

几年前从马来西亚带回两瓶泰国产的虾干辣椒粉非常辣,味道很鲜,平时炒面炒饭时加一点非常好吃,因为是干粉没有油,存储长时间味道都不变,非常喜欢。

买来的用完我就一直想着自己做一次,趁周末又是雨天出不了门,就在家做这个好吃好用的辣椒粉吧!

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



之前做了好吃的糖酥饼,就想着下次做一次我也特别喜欢的麻酱糖饼,我做的糖饼红糖比较少,但是味道还是非常非常好的哦!

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!

【鸡蛋三文治】Egg Salad Sandwich

俊宝的学校上课时间很长,学校的午饭时间也比较早,十一点半就吃完了。平时放学回到家里已经快下午四点钟了,一回到家就会说肚子很饿,所以我都会在他回来之前给他准备些点心,这款三明治是他很喜欢的点心之一,所以我也经常做。

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



发糕里我最喜欢的是米发糕,而米发糕里我最喜欢的就属这款酒酿发糕了。这款酒酿米发糕完全满足了我对食品的追求。天然,质朴,美味,古法少添加。就是食品原有的样子。

注:做这个米发糕要用新鲜酿制的酒酿才会发得好。

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.

【萝卜排骨汤】Pork Rib Radish Soup


Pork rib and radish soup is a type of soup that I make a lot at home, especially in the winter months, it is hearty and helps to keep the body warm.

秋冬季节我最爱炖的汤就是排骨萝卜汤了,冷冷的天气里来一碗热汤,既能饱肚也能温暖身子,真是御寒的好东西。

【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。

早餐就是我心心念念的刈包啦!

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