Homemade ‘Seitan’ & Vegan Roasted Barbecue ‘Pork’ ~ 麵筋, 素叉燒

Homemade ‘Seitan’ & Vegan Roasted Barbecue ‘Pork’/Char Siu ~ 麵筋, 素叉燒  

  

It is a rare chance that I’ll make this ‘seitan’. Since I saw lots of my Facebook friend’s post ~ Roasted vegan ‘Char Siu’ 素叉燒 . Their mouth-watering photos impulse me to try it again.

Sounds I did have this experiment before. Yes! I have but not really like it at all. Why? Because it’ll wash away a lot of flour to get a small amount of seitan to make bbq ‘pork’. It is not really economical.

Slow Cook Kale & Butternut Squash Dal (羽衣甘藍 & 南瓜, 印度豆)

Slow Cook Kale & Butternut Squash Dal (羽衣甘藍 & 南瓜, 印度豆)

Dal or dhal is a dried pulse which has been split. The outer hull is usually stripped off; dal that has not been hulled is described as chilka, e.g. chilka urad dal, mung dal chilka.

Dhal, is the Indian staple made from split pulses. They’re high in fibre, full of good protein, low in calories, fat free, quick and easy to cook, reasonable cheap, substantial, versatile and delicious. It can serve with rice or naan bread. The chana dhal, an Indian chickpea, used most often to make dhal in India. But now, most of the people use the yellow split peas, red or green lentil instead . Split peas will give a slightly creamier dhal. If you can’t find fresh curry leaves, you can use frozen one like me.
