Steamed Corn

Steamed Corn
My daughter and I love to eat this Steamed Corn.
Both of us never tired of eating it.

Bought from the morning market at RM5.00 for 3 cobs.
Cheap and easy to make compare buying from outlets at shopping malls.

  1. Throw away the husks.
  2. Cut out the corn.
  3. Place the cut corn on a high ream glass plate.
  4. Steam at high fire for 10-15 minutes.
  5. Season with butter and salt.

I love to use the above photo "bamboo steamer". Less water will drip down to the food.

Serve while it is warm.

Puteri Ayu

Puteri Ayu
So tempting when saw some homemakers made this Puteri Ayu.
Well, this morning made this for praying to my late father.
My brother's family and my mother said the texture is soft and flavourful
 with coconut and pandan.  I am glad that I made this.

Below is my slight amended recipe.

  1.  1 Egg
  2. 50 g Caster Sugar.
  3. 70 g Self Raising Flour (shifted).
  4. 65ml Coconut Milk blended with 5 pieces of Pandan Leaves (strained).
  5. 40g Fresh Shredded Coconut.
  6. Pinch of Salt.
  7. 1/2 tsp Corn flour

  1. Mix the shredded Coconut with Salt and Corn flour and set aside.
  2. Blend the Coconut Milk with Pandan Leaves (Screwpine Leaves), strained with muslin cloth and set aside.

  1.  Beat Egg with Caster Sugar until thick and fluffy.
  2. Add Coconut Milk and beat for a short while.
  3. Add half of the Self Raising Flour and mix well.
  4. Add the balance of the half Self Raising Flour and mix well.

  1. Oil the moulds with some oil.
  2. Press some shredded Coconut at the bottom of the mould.
  3. Pour the batter into the moulds.
  4. Steam at high fire for 10 minutes or less.  (I did for 13-15 minutes and found the texture bit hard).(When the water is boiling only you place the moulds for steaming).  It is all depends on the fire, size of the mould and quantity of the batter inside the mould.  
  5. Unmould it when it is slightly cold.

Definitely will be making this again to share with my friends.

Your Father will not rest in peace if all of you do not carry on with your life.
So, took her advice to start with our own life while we are carrying out 
with our mourning and prayers.

Kung Pao Chicken, Kung Po Chicken, Gong Bao Chicken

Kung Pao Chicken / Kung Po Chicken /
Gong Bao Chicken
No joke, this dish is listed in Wikipedia.
Some named it Kung Pao Chicken, Kung Po Chicken, Gong Bao Chicken and etc.

Thanks to Haslina Abdul Majid, my new found friend sharing this recipe in FB.
When I saw the video, it seemed so easy to cook and I told myself that I need to 
challenge myself to cook this dish.
Our family has been ordering this dish whenever we eat outside but
I never tried it myself to cook it, maybe scared of failure (LOL). 
This dish is very flavourful but the end verdict by my family and I are as follows :-
"don't like the taste of the Szechuan Peppercorn (added too much?)".

Next try, will omit the Szezhuan Peppercorn.

Ingredients :-
 2 whole skinless leg Chicken (trim the fat, deboned and sliced into pieces).
1/2 handful of Spring Onion (clean and cut roughly).
10 pieces of Dried Chills (soak with water and deseed).
1 tbsp chopped Garlic.
1 tbsp chopped Ginger.
1/2 tbsp Szechuan Peppercorn.

  1. Marinade the chicken with 2 tsp dark soya sauce, 2 tsp shaoxing wine, 2 tsp corn starch and 1/4 tsp pepper for 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the sauce for cooking and set aside - 1 tsp dark soya sauce, 1 tbsp soya sauce, 1 tbsp black vinegar, 1 tbsp sugar, 1/2 cube chicken stock.

  1. Mix 1 tbsp of the cooking oil into the marinated chicken and stir well.
  2. Heat up 1 tbsp of cooking oil and cook until 3/4 cooked and dish out.
  3. Add some cooking oil and heat it up.
  4. Add  garlic, ginger, szechuan peppercorn, dried chilli and fry until the aroma surfaced.
  5. Add the 3/4 cooked chicken and spring onion and stir fry until cooked.

Even though we don't like the taste of the Szechuan Peppercorn, we still finished this dish.
Instead of eating with rice, you can eat with steamed plain pau :)
