Oven Baked Crispy Curry Chicken 香脆咖喱烤鸡 (免油炸)



Flavourful, tasty, succulent and healthier than deep fried chicken, these baked curry chicken is super easy to prepare. Be it on school holiday or busy schooling day, I skipped the mortar and pestle by using instant curry paste, saved time and energy, just make sure to choose the paste that has no MSG and preservative added. 





This recipe is adapted from one of my popular recipe ~ Oven Baked Crispy Har Cheong Gai aka Prawn Paste Chicken.

My boy is selected for the round 2 GEP test. As a parent, I'm extremely happy and proud of him because it's really not easy to pass the first screening test as there's only the top 10% amongst the cohort is selected.

Song Cho Stainless Steel 1.8L Rice Cooker (SC-FD18F2) [Product Review]


Rice cookers that comes with multi-functions are gaining more and more acceptance in the world today due to the convenience that they offer and ease of use. In this blog post, I will share my review of Song Cho Stainless Steel 1.8L Rice Cooker (SC-FD18F2) that I have been using in my daily cooking, not only cooking rice but a variety of dishes from savoury one pot meal to sweet desserts and 2 in 1 meal.


Come with a steaming rack, ideal for 2 in 1 meal. 



Stainless steel steamer can be purchased separately, if desired.

Tap this link to purchase from Song Cho e-shop 
<< 22cm Stainless Steel Steamer $12.90 (including GST), suitable for 1.8L rice cooker >>

Come with a measuring cup and serving spatula/ ladle for rice and soup.

I love cooking one pot meal using Song Cho rice cooker because I could use the STEAM function to pre-fry the ingredients in the inner pot instead of frying over the stove using another pan and transfer to the rice cooker. This is more practical, saved time and effort without the need of washing extra utensils. It comes with the sensor touch control panel that is very easy to operate.


Sensor Touch Control Panel



At the back of the rice cooker, there's this small holder to collect "steam water"  when opening the cover/ lid.
No more wet table top after cooking with this rice cooker. ;)



This rice cooker is so versatile with 12 functions:
  • Regular
  • Fast Cook
  • Cook (Brown Rice, Pearl Rice, Long Grain Rice)
  • Porridge
  • Soup
  • Steam
  • Stew
  • Crust
  • Cake
  • Yoghurt
  • Preset Time 
  • Keep Warm Time  
The inner pot is made of 3-ply multiply stainless steel, with no chemical coating that does not react with the food cooked or in contact with its surface, it can be used for cooking practically everything.

Made of high quality stainless steel material.

3-ply multiply stainless steel inner pot.
It's very easy to clean and it doesn't stick if you use it correctly. 

Here's a compilation of the rice cooker recipe and video tutorial of some easy dishes that I have cooked using Song Cho Rice Cooker with different functions used:

One Pot Meal - Rice Cooker Mushroom Chicken Rice cooked using STEAM and FAST COOK function

Cute Bear Mooncake Festival Onigiri (with Marmite Roast Chicken) 小熊中秋节赏月饭团


Rice Based Food Art - Cute Bear Mooncake Festival Onigiri 小熊中秋节赏月饭团. Mid Autumn Festival is all about celebration with the family, colourful lanterns and yummy mooncake. This is a lovely and hearty lunch that I have prepared for my 9yo son. Teddy bears are made of rice, paired with some veggies and yummylicious Honey Glazed Marmite Roast Chicken Drumsticks. 


Last year, I have made a single bear eating mooncake alone. 


Created in year 2017. Mid Autumn Festival Cute Bento.


This year, little bear found a companion. Two little bears sitting side by side, holding a lantern... 赏花,赏月。。how lovely! 







Here are some quick notes to show the steps/ method:

2. Portion out some rice, 1 part mix with dark soy sauce and leave the remaining plain. Mould into bear shapes as shown in the picture below. Blanch the broccoli in chicken broth while shaping the rice.





3. Line some lettuce on the lower part of the serving plate. Place one roasted drumstick on the left side. Place broccoli on top to make the tree.







4. Place the rice as shown in the picture below. Decorate with some flowers made of crabsticks and lantern made of cherry tomato.






5. Place a home baked cookie as the moon. I have baked some cookies this morning using my mooncake mould. 





That's the 4 in 1 mooncake mould that I used to make mooncake, well actually it works very well for cookies!
Mooncake mould is available for sale at DGZ SHOP
Visit DGZ SHOP Facebook, send a PM to place order. 

Alternatively can use cheese or egg to make the moon. Place some cheddar cheese stars in the sky and it's done! Happy Mid Autumn Festival!
