Curry Chicken Recipe | With Instant Curry Chicken Paste

This is the first time I cooked curry chicken in my life, I cooked it with instant "A1 curry chicken paste". The first experience with successful and delicious curry chicken, I am very confident to cook for second time in future. With this instant curry chicken paste, you do not need to get headache with quantity of chilli, onion, garlic, and curry powder. With simple instruction shown behind the packing, what you need are 1kg of chicken (or beef or lamb), 200ml of water and 120ml of coconut milk. I cooked with 8 chicken wings and 3 potatos. Besides, I added 5 chopped shallots (small onion) for better taste. Firstly, pour in the instant curry paste and stir for few minutes, add in chicken wings, follow by potatos. Stir evenly for another few minutes, pour in water and let them boil. When the chickens are well cooked and potatos are soft, add in coconut milk. Stir evenly and you can have a pot of very delicious curry chicken in front of you.

Baked Mooncake Recipe 公仔饼/猪仔饼

My mother usually will buy home made mooncake (gong zai bing) from her friend every year. This year her friend does not make the mooncake to sell, so we make it ourself. It is not difficult to make this gong zai bing, we get ingredients and recipe from one of the ingredient shop in Penang. The sales person recommended us to use pure peanut oil as our cooking oil is not a pure peanut oil, they added a kind of essence to make cooking oil. I do not know how true it is, but from the price, they have so much difference in "real" peanut oil (RM11 for 500g) compare to our cooking oil. We also bought cake flour from her to make the mooncake but according to her, any medium protein flour will do. Recall back last year, I used low protein flour to make gong zai bing. Golden syrup is expensive too, RM11.50 for 1kg.  Ingredients:500ml golden syrup200ml peanut oil15ml lye water700g medium protein flour/cake flour Method:1. Mix golden syrup, peanut oil and lye water in big bowl until combine.2. Sift in flour and mix until combine. Do not overmix to prevent mixture become hard.3. Cover bowl and leave for 6 hours or overnight. (compare with my last year recipe, which need to leave for 2 hours only, the sales person said 6 hours will let the flour absorb oil/golden syrup fully and give the mooncake better taste)4. Preheat oven at 180C for half an hour.5. Divide dough to 40g each and roll it round, lightly press with palm to flatten it.6. Bake in oven (fan-forced) for 12 mins or until cooked. The gong zai bing smell and taste really good after baked. It is best to keep and consume after 3 days, as when the biscuit just out from oven, the texture is not soft yet. I will keep this recipe for future use. The same recipe can be used to make traditional mooncake (wrap with filling) too. To make piggy mooncake, follow here: Before I end this post, MnYfoodtalk would like to wish everyone a very Happy Mooncake Festival!

 

Mikki G Restaurant (Formerly Home's Cafe) | D'piazza, Bayan Lepas

After Green Island western food restaurant, there is another newly open western food restaurant in Bayan Lepas area. It was formerly known as Home's Cafe, and now change to Mikki G. We managed to visit this place on last Friday, second day of the opening. 10% discount on all foods and it is applicable until end of April 2013. Heard that the chef is from Legend hotel in KL. The interior of the restaurant remained the same as previous and worker's uniform is still black in colour. Menu wise, they serve more on western food, including chicken chop, chicken cordon bleu, roast rosemary chicken, spegetti and etc. Lamb shrank is popular according to my colleague. Besides, the old menu "Local Delight" from Home's Cafe are still available.

Kaya_11"kaya" is a jam made with coconut milk (santan), sugar and eggs. Pandan leaves are added during cooking process to bring more fragrance to the jam.

I have this homemade kaya recipe from my mother while she made kaya jam last Sunday. The ingredients used are very simple but I was impressed with her patient during the cooking process. It was really time consuming to make the delicious kaya. You need to stir the mixture continuously during the cooking process in order to get the smooth texture kaya.

If this time consuming version does not suit you, go for this version, which only required less than 30 minutes to get your kaya jam ready.

Let's go into the ingredients and cooking method now.


Ingredients:
10 eggs
900g sugar
1kg coconut milk
pandan leaves (wash)

The whole process took about 4 hours. Patient and hardwork are needed to make it successful. I believed most of the people will rather buy it outside. Tongue out But, I did appreciate the time and effort that mom spent to make the delicious kaya jam for her family. Thank you mom Kiss ! It was soooooo delicious and "sweet". Wink

Hi Phyllis, thanks for dropping by. According to mom, it is necessary to ladle the mixture into a bag first if you want your kaya to have a smooth texture.

Hi, I am so excited to have found this recipe! Thank you for posting it! I remember my aunties making this and have wanted to make it myself.

I noticed that in one of the photos, the jam seemed to be ladled into a bag? Can you tell me if that is necessary to do?

Thank you

Hi

I would like to know when you double boiled the kaya, in step 8,

1) do you cover the pot with the kaya and also the double boiled pot?
2) how long do you double boiled it?
3) do you open it regularly to stir it?

Looking forwad to your answers.

TQ.
