Happy ST. Patrick’s Day 2015 ~ Steamed Coconut Tapioca cake

Today is the St. Patrick’s day, nearly forget about it.

Still have half day to make something fun for it.

Here is the one that I made this afternoon, only take me two hours to spend in the kitchen.

It is one of the popular cake in South-east Asia, no-bake but steam. Add the coconut milk to make more flavour to the cake.

I use the pumpkin puree to make the orange colour. The middle layer white colour is the plain coconut milk with tapioca starch.

And the third layer is the green, I just add two  drops of pandan extract with the coconut milk and the tapioca starch.

 

That’s all the ingredients and make the Irish flag, do you like it? Anyway, it taste so good and soft.

Enjoy!

Two tone 'man tau'

Two tone ‘man tau’

What’s all about? Black and White? An old movie?

I am talking about the bread/ ‘man tao’饅頭 that I made today. It is the colour of this steamed bun. Black is actually dark brown sugar (台灣黑糖), and the white is the plain white layer.

They are a traditional breakfast bread roll in China. Also, so popular in South-East Asia, even now. They have so many different flavour: like pandan juice; pumpkin; yam; or purple sweet potato. Personal, I like the purple sweet potato, but it is not easy to buy from England. . Also in Taiwan and Malaysia. People like to have them in their breakfast with a cup of fresh-made hot or cold soya milk . Mmm, so yummy!

Stir-Fry Korean Mat Kimchi 막김치with Rice cake ~ II (韓式炒年糕) (3 recipes)

Stir-Fry Korean Mat Kimchi 막김치 with Rice cake ~ II   (韓式炒年糕) (3 recipes)

It is no doubt that Korea trend has been sweeping all over the world already. Even my BBC kids are the fans of all Korean game shows. Tell you guys something, they learned some Korean words from them, so cute!

Here is my second recipe for Korean kimchi 막김치. It was a bit hot for my kids last time. So I add few grated pears mixed with the kimchi paste to balance the spicy. Let the kimchi fermented in the cold room temperature for two days, then keep in the fridge.  If you like the kimchi has a bit tart, leave in the room temperature for one or two days, just like mine. Otherwise, you can finish marinate the vegetables, and store in the fridge straight away. This time the taste just right for my kids, also I  adore it so much.
