Japanese Sweet Bun & Mexican Bun


Tried another sweet bun's recipe today... Used water roux (tangzhong method), it's soft but not as fluffy as the one I used for Hong Kong Polo Buns. 






I used the same Japanese Sweet Bun dough to make Mexican Bun. 
No coffee added in this recipe. The crispy top is simply delicious! 
Next, I'm going to add some filling in it!

Photo updated 6 July, 2017.


Can you spot the prawn? Or just cereal? That's the way I like it....  


Photo updated 6 July, 2017.

A small bunch of Curry Leaves 咖喱叶 适量

20g Unsalted Butter 牛油 20克,喜欢重口味的可以放 35-40克

1 tsp Red Chilies/ Bird's Eye Chilies (chopped, optional) 红辣椒碎/指天椒碎 1小匙

Some chopped spring onion for garnishing 青葱碎 少许


Seasoning: 调味

3/4 tsp Salt 盐 3/4 小匙 

1 tbsp Beaten Egg 鸡蛋 1汤匙

1 tbsp Plain Flour 面粉 1汤匙

Hakka Noodle With Minced Pork 客家肉碎面



Is this the authentic Hakka noodle? I don't know, my mom used to cook it this way and it tastes similar to the famous Hakka noodle in my hometown. 

I normally cooked this without measuring the ingredients and so as my mom, the way we cook at home is by estimation aka 'agar-ration' 凭感觉烹饪.  However, due to high demand from my readers who needs recipe with exact amount used of each ingredients, I have edited this blog post with details. Hope it helps. 


Photo updated: 4 Jan 2017
Cooked this for my boy to eat during school recess. This time, I used organic carrot flat noodles.

Method: 步骤

1. Add seasoning (A) into minced pork. Marinate for 1 hour.
把(A)加入肉碎搅拌均匀,腌1小时。

2. Meanwhile, soak dried shrimp for 20 minutes. Drain and finely chopped. Mix with minced garlic.
把虾米浸泡20分钟后剁碎。把虾米碎和蒜茸混合备用。

3. Bring a pot of water to boil. Cook the noodle for a few minutes. Discard hot water, rinse with cold water, drain and stir in some sesame oil.
把面煮好,冲一冲冷水,加少许麻油,备用。

4. Heat oil in the skillet, add in mixture of dried shrimp and garlic. Fry until fragrant.
把油烧热,爆香虾米碎和蒜茸。

5. Add the minced pork and fry till cooked. Add a little water, a pinch of salt and pepper, simmer for about 2 minutes or till the gravy is thicken. 
加入肉碎,炒熟。加少许水,焖一焖,加少许盐和胡椒粉调味。

6. Remove from heat. Garnish with chopped spring onion and served warm with noodles. 
收汁后,配搭面条和葱碎,即可享用。

Note: I'm cooking for my little boy, so I prefer to make everything ready-to-eat for him. In step 6, stir in noodles and let it simmer for few seconds to absorb the flavour, dish out and garnish with chopped spring onion. 如果是煮给小朋友吃的,我一般的做法是把肉碎煮好后,加入面条,焖一焖入味,然后才上桌。那小朋友就不会吃完肉碎不吃面咯!;) 若喜欢我的食谱,可以LIKE和追随我的面书专页,不要错过最新食谱发布。

This is a 'sinful' dessert! Rich, creamy and sweet... It's my first Nutella Cheesecake...I added some icing sugar which I think I should reduce the amount next time. Just a little too sweet for me.

Photo updated: May 12, 2016




My little boy always complain the rice is too dry when there's no soup added in his rice. So whenever I cook fried food that goes with rice, I'll make this steamed egg for him to pair with rice. That's what my mom made for me when I was a child. 

Ingredients: (yield 1 serving, 1人份)

1 Egg (room temperature) 鸡蛋 1粒 ,室温

Water/ Chicken Broth 水/鸡汤 ,比率:1份鸡蛋:2份水/鸡汤
(The ratio is 1 part egg : 2 part water. Read the details in the method)


Pinch of Salt 盐,少许

Pinch of Pepper 胡椒粉, 少许

Sesame Oil and Spring Onion for Garnishing (optional) 麻油,葱碎, 少许 (随意)

在鸡蛋的顶部轻轻敲一个洞,把蛋液倒进碗里。加入少许盐和胡椒粉调味。

2. Fill water/ chicken broth into the egg shell (x 2). Pour into the egg and mix well. 
把水/鸡汤倒入蛋壳(需填满),然后倒进碗里。重复1次。把鸡蛋和水/鸡汤搅拌均匀。





3. Strain the egg mixture. 
把蛋液过筛。


Photo updated 24 February 2015, this step is crucial!




4. Bring water to boil. Steam for 5 minutes (quick method).
蒸5分钟。

Tips for beginner: Cover the bowl with a lid or aluminium foil, steam for 20 minutes. Medium heat for this method.

新手推荐:用锡纸或盖,把碗盖好,蒸20分钟(用中小火)。这个方法的成功率最高。

5. Garnish with sesame oil and spring onion. Serve warm.
蒸好后,随意放些麻油和葱碎即可。若喜欢我的食谱,可以LIKE和追随我的面书专页,不要错过最新食谱发布。

Air Fryer Pandan Leaf Chicken 班兰叶炸鸡 (免油炸)





I have two Pandan Leaves Chicken recipes, a simple one for beginner and another more flavourful version which requires more ingredients. Both versions taste good, cooked without oil in air fryer. I'm using Ninja Foodi multi cooker Air-Crisp function, it's easy and fuss-free, cooked in a pot that is so easy to clean up, no oily kitchen, no greasy stovetop.

Besides pressure cook and air frying, there are other functions such as steam, slow cook, sear/ saute, bake/ roast, grill and keep warm. Also can be used for stir frying with the 5 adjustable heat levels. It's like a portable kitchen + pressure cooker + air fryer + oven. :D
