Steam Chicken with Mushroom Using Cosway Steamer

Recently when we were doing house keeping, we found out that there is a unit of steamer given by Camus's mom. She bought it from Cosway many years ago but did not use it at all. We took it out from our store room and keep it at kicthen. Last two weeks, we used it to cook for our lunch and dinner. We found it quite useful and easy to use without dirty our kicthen, hence not much cleaning job after cook except for washing the steamer part by part after use. We first try with steam chicken with mushroon, the night before cook, we merinate two big chicken drumsticks with oyster sauce, soy sauce and pepper. To make the chicken more delicious, we added dried mushroom, red dates and ginger to the chicken on the day we cooked. Since the steamer contains three layers, we put in lady finger and corn too. With this simple and easy cooking way, we were able to enjoy our meal, and it was so delicious.

 

Ki no me (kinome) Japanese Restaurant | The One, Penang

Ki no me, a Japanese Restaurant located at The One, Bayan Lepas. Before went there, comments from others about this restaurant are positive. Good food with good price, but need to wait for nearly one hour before the food was serve. When I blog for this restaurant, I google for Ki no me, and I found this: 木の芽, the young leaves of the sansho tree (Japanese pepper). I think the restaurant named after this leaf as I observed the wall is decorated with many greeny leaves. I believed they are ki no me. Today, we decided to give it a try, we were lucky as we get a parking space right in front of the restaurant and not crowded at the time we arrived there.

 

6 Days 5 Nights Relax at Chiang Mai (Day 1) | 废人废生活的清迈6天5夜行 (第一天)

Day 1 With Thai Airway, we fly at 8:10am early morning from Penang, arrived and transit Bangkok at 8:50am. Fly from Bangkok at 10:40am, we had arrived Chiang Mai at 11:50am. The total flight journey including transit time just took us about 5 hours, compare with Air Asia, longer time spent for transiting is actually a big waste. This is also another reason why we chosen Thai Airway. 第一天 我们乘搭泰航,早上八点十分的班机从槟城飞往曼谷,抵达时间为八点五十分。再乘搭十点四十分的班机转机飞往清迈,抵达时间是十一点五十分。槟城与清迈时差是一个小时。以短短的五个小时我们就能顺利抵达清迈。这也是我们选择泰航的其中一个原因。   By the time we touched down at Chiang Mai, taxi driver that we reserved through hotel already waited us at Airport. We quickly grab a free phone sim card and local map, then proceed to our first hotel, Baannamping. On the way to hotel, taxi driver dropped us at local market to buy some fruits, cup noodles and junk food. 当我们抵达清迈机场,司机已经正在等待迎接我们。我们快速的取了当地免费电话卡及地图,就前往Baannamping住宿。途中,我们请求司机停放我们在当地巴刹,购买些水果。我们买了三包各20Baht的水果,准备回旅馆享用。再到隔壁的Tesco Lotus Express买些杯面及零食,就回到旅馆。 Fruits, junk foods and cup noodles After checked in to hotel, we had our lunch at hotel's restaurant. The meals are not as cheap as what we had expected. A plate of fried noodle Pad Thai is 150Baht, fried rice is 150Baht, apple juice is 85Baht. For taste wise, fried rice is the best, although it does not look attractive and portion is very small, but it really tastes superb. Pad Thai is their local food with sweet and salty taste. The noodle is actually thin version of our koay teow. We expect for fresh apple juice, but it was just a juice from box packet. 抵达旅馆放下包包后,我们就到他们的食堂用午餐。打开菜谱,发觉价钱并没有想象中便宜。以为一盘饭面只需50Baht左右,但并非如此。由于肚子已在打鼓,所以就点了一盘炒饭150Baht,一盘炒面Pad Thai 150Baht,及一杯苹果汁85Baht。 等了一片刻,食物终于送上,果汁有点让我失望,原以为是新鲜果汁,但其实是盒装倒出来的。炒面是当地的食物,带点咸及甜味,觉得很不错。但,最令人难以忘怀的是炒饭,看下去白白的并没什么特别,但味道超好,超香。只可惜分量太少了,想再来多一盘又觉得有点贵。就这样吃完了我们清迈的第一餐。 Apple juice Fried rice Pad thai After meal, we returned to our hotel room, started enjoy our free and easy life. After rest, we borrowed motor bike from hotel to Baan Tawai Village. This place sells many wood products and we like those wooden product so much. If you like wooden product, this is the right place for you! 吃饱后,我们回房休息,开始废了起来,这无忧无虑的感觉真好。废够后,我们向工作人员借了电单车,问了方向后,就到附近的Baan Tawai Village瞎逛。途中不知正确位置,就询问当地居民,他都很乐意的为我们指明方向。没多久,我们抵达目的地,当地所卖的木制物品,比我们想象的还多,只可惜很多都是带不回的,比如座椅橱柜等等,但也有些小样物品,就如灯,装饰品,礼品,服装等。我们购买了木制吊饰品,80Baht一个以作为纪念。   The shops at Baan Tawai closed at 5pm. After shopping, we went to night market near to our hotel. It is a small night market but there are plenty types of food. Foods are cheap and delicious too. Papaya salad 25Baht, fried port skin 20Baht, pork ball 10Baht for 10pcs, fried "yao zha kuay" and pandan custard 13Baht, egg tart15Baht, crispy hat biscuit 10Baht, sago dessert 5Baht. We returned to hotel to enjoy the foods we bought, we liked most of them such as the appetizing papaya salad. We faced some difficultly when purchased papaya salad, we do not understand their language and want to ask them the price for papaya salad, we asked the aunty "How Much?", she did not understand us at all, and pointed us what they sell. I looked at the menu and point at number "25", she knocked her head, from there we guess it is 25 baht. Although we faced communication problem, but their help and positive attitude had warm our heart. Unlike many other places, when you ask and nego for price, but in the end you decided not to buy, you will get scold by the shop owner, but we did not see this happen in Chiang Mai. 逛了没多久,差不多傍晚五点,店铺开始关闭了。我们前往当地的巴刹购买晚餐。由于第一次逛当地夜市,看见当地的食物,即便宜,看试又美味,所以很兴奋地,买了一样又一样。当中有木瓜沙拉25Baht,炸猪皮20Baht,猪肉丸10Baht10粒,油条和Pandan Custard 13Baht,蛋塔15Baht,香脆帽子饼10Baht,沙谷甜品5Baht,及水。看,都很便宜吧?买完后,我们回到酒店享用晚餐。木瓜沙拉超好吃,是由青木瓜,红番茄,青茄子等,再加上各种调味品所调出来的。酸酸甜甜非常开胃。还记得我们买沙拉时,问他们"How Much?",他们完全听不明白我们问什么,只在比手画脚告诉我们她在卖什么,后来是看到牌上的价钱表,随便指一指才能让她明白。虽然语言完全不通,但他们用心来明白我们的疑问,及路人的乐心帮忙,温软了我们的心。至于其他的小贩,也是非常的友善,态度非常好,当你提问问题,或者购买东西时,他们都是以微笑来对待你。不只如此,就算问了不买,他们也OkOk笑笑回应你,并不会给你脸色看,和香港人实在是天地之差呢。吃完晚餐,我们继续废,就这样过了清迈的第一天。 Market near Baan Namping Fried "yao zha kuay" and pandan custard Crispy hat biscuit Our dinner Milk tea

 

Low Sugar Coffee Chiffon Cake Recipe

This cake is specially dedicated to an OLD baby boy that was born on 67 years ago, exactly 33 years earlier than my OLD baby Camus. Now, the OLDer baby has diabetes and cannot consume much sugar. Everytime I bake a cake, he will complain that my cake is tooooooooo sweet. To cater for his needs, I change my chiffon cake recipe to low sugar version, I choose coffee flavour because... besides my mummy, the one that he cannot let go and cannot survive without is COFFEE...and yes, the "he" I mentioned here is my lovely daddy! It has been long time I want to come out with low sugar version cake, pastry, and etc, and being lazy is my natural instinct. Dad's birthday is a good reason for me to start my low sugar recipe. Ingredients5 egg yolks (about 85g)10g sugar75g hot water + 10g instant coffee (mix well)1tbsp coffee paste70g corn oil120g cake flour 5 egg whites (about 200g)45g sugar1/2tsp cream of tartar Method (step by step picture here)1. Add sugar into egg yolks, immediately whisk with hand whisk until pale and light.2. Add in corn oil, mix well.3. Add in coffee water and coffee paste, mix well.4. Sift in flour, stir until well combined. You will get a thick mixture now.5. Whisk egg white with electrical hand mixer at low speed until big bubbles form, add in cream of tartar.6. Continue whisk from medium to high speed until small bubbles form (egg white is foamy and white in color now).7. Slowly add in sugar in few badges, continue whisk at high speed until soft peak formed.8. Add 1/3 of meringue into egg yolk mixture, mix gently with hand whisk until well combined. You will get a light mixture.9. Change hand whisk to rubber spatula, fold in 1/2 of the remaining meringue. GENTLY fold with egg yolks batter until 50% combined (you will still see white meringue now).10. Add all remaining meringue and fold GENTLY with spatula again until well combined (your mixture should be very light and volume now).11. Pour batter into chiffon pan. Using satay stick / chopstick, run around baking pan side and then draw curly pattern all the way in the middle and bang pan on counter top to remove big bubbles. Level the surface and bake in preheated oven at 160C with fan forced for 45 minutes or until cooked.12. When cooked, remove from oven and invert chiffon pan immediately to prevent shrinkage. The pan must remain inverted until fully cool.13. To remove chiffon cake from pan, carefully run the pan outer, inner and bottom side with thin spatula or knife. Invert pan to remove cake on big serving plate. At first I was afraid the cake will shrink after reduce half of the sugar quantity, but I am very happy to see the cake turn out very nice. For taste wise, my dad able to accept this sweetness level by finished 1~2 pieces of the cake. Even though the level of sweetness has reduce, but the coffee fragrance did brought me a "Yes, delicious!" comment from all the other family members. I am very happy to say that I had successfully make a low sugar birthday cake for dad this year, wish him happy birthday, healty and properous day ahead!

PlainCheeseCake_8

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.

 

 

Below are the ingredients needed.

PlainCheeseCake_3

250g    cream cheese (room temperature)

80g      caster sugar

3          eggs

1tbsp   plain flour

200ml  fresh cream

1tbsp   lemon juice

Method:

1. Mix cream cheese and caster sugar in a bowl. Beat until smooth and creamy.

2. Add in eggs one by one and mix until just combined.

4. Add in plain flour and continue to mix until combined.
5. Lastly add in fresh cream and mix well.

8. Wait until it is completely cool and store in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes before served.

The ingredients used and method of preparation are actually similar to the one we bake with oven, which is the normal way. But I would like to comment on the outcome I obtained this round. Basically everything is fine but texture of the cake is not as perfect as what I expected. It was a bit hard on the side of the cake. I believed it was caused by the time taken to bake the cake. I baked for more than 30 minutes, which I think it was too long. I should try to bake in shorter time next round, and wish that I will be able to get the result that I want.

*I used Japan's rice cooker to bake the cake, their design of rice cooker is different to Malaysia's, I think. Hence I am not sure whether Malaysia's rice cooker is suitable to use to bake for a cake or not.

As I don't have my oven with me in Japan, hence I am looking for alternate way to bake. I believed the rice cooker at my apartment can served me well also, hope it won't disappoint me. Hehe... I miss my smart oven in Penang!

Hi Loverly, I have not think of using electric stove with rice cooker pan to bake cake. I am sorry to say that I have no idea on how to bake cake in this way. Anyhow, I did tried with gas stove to steam cake, which you need a big pot of hot boiled water, and put your cake in that big pot and steam it with gas stove. If you want, you can try to steam cake with your electic stove, you can look for steam cake recipe like this one www.mnyfoodtalk.com/index.php/recipe/bake/105-steamed-caramel-banana-cake-recipe
On the other hand, you may try to look for cheese cake recipe (if you prefer cheese cake) that use steam method.

Hi Susan,

I am not sure whether they have English version or not, as I myself also find it is difficult to get English recipe book in Japan. What you can do is to find the recipe from internet.

Please share with me after you have successfully bake your cheese cake with your rice cooker.

Oh ya, another alternative way to make a cake, you can buy the premix cheese cake powder from hyper market, you just need to mix it with milk, the packing comes with biscuit base as well as cheese powder filling, after mix with milk, it is exactly the same as chilled cheese cake. Anyhow, I prefer the cheesecake make with pure cream cheese, as the taste will be stronger. But it is very useful if you would like to make a cake for friend's birthday. Easy and 100% guarantee successful.

Thank you for the title of the book, unfortunately I can't read Kanji very well or speak Japanese very well either, so can't use the book you used. Do you know if there is an English version?
I'm from Scotland, but have lived in Japan for around 18months. I love it here, but like you I miss my oven aswell. I am always trying new things in my rice cooker as this is the only good item in my very small kitchen.
The 'Cake' setting bakes cakes and bread beautifuly for me. However in my old rice cooker the normal setting pretty much burned everything at the bottom and sides leaving it hard around the edges :Pinch:
I am going to atempt to make this cake tonight for my friends birthday tomorrow. I really hope it works. :silly: :cheer:

Hi Susan, thanks for your comment. The book title is 炊飯器でお菓子。Do we need the ケーキ setting to bake the cake? May I know where are you from? Nice to meet you here...and hope to hear from you again. :-)

I noticed your particular cooker doesn't have a ケーキ setting, which could possible be the reason your cake didn't turn out as expected.

What was the book you took the recipe from? I am always interested in trying new recipes in my cooker. What a genius piece of equipment. :P

I look forward to your reply.

Susan ☺
