Carrot Porridge with Salted Duck Egg

 I have posted a few recipes on porridge.
My family loves to eat porridge especially during this kind of hot
and humid weather.

Click below for the other recipes.

 1 cup of rice (wash a few times) and then marinade with 
1/2 tablespoon of Salt and 1 tablespoon of Cooking Oil for 30 minutes.
1 medium size Carrot and julienne.
2 Salted Duck Eggs (wash)**

** Show the above picture with left side before washing and
right side after washing

 After marinade the rice for 30 minutes, add 8 cups of water.
Add the rest of the ingredients i.e. Carrot and Salted Duck Eggs.

Cook at high fire and when it is boiled, turn the fire to medium
and cook until the texture to your liking.
(It will boiled out, remember to watch over the pot frequently,
unless you are using rice cooker or pressure cooker to cook.
It is a bit tricky if you are using fire to cook.)

 If you find the texture of your porridge a bit thick, add hot water
(not cold water) and stir until combined.

Take out the Salted Duck Eggs and cut it into halves.

Well, to some they will yuck on porridge, but just to let you know
that Chinese feels that eating porridge during hot weather cleanse
our intestines.  You can add Spring Onion, Fried Onion or
few drop of Sesame Oil to make the porridge more interesting.

Walnut Streusel Coffee Cake

Walnut Streusel Coffee Cake
My husband bought a lot of walnut from overseas.
Requested me to bake using the walnut for him.  Surf quite a number of recipes
My husband said delicious cake indeed but he prefer more streusel on top
and middle part.  He is such a greedy pig. 

Ingredients for the Streusel :-
42g Butter
1 cup chopped Walnut (slightly roasted)
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt

Mix all and set aside.

250g Butter
270g Flour*
230g Caster Sugar
5 Eggs
1 tsp Baking Powder*
1/2 tsp Salt*
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Milk

*To shift together

Beat Butter and Caster Sugar until fluffy and creamy.
Beat in Eggs, one at a time until well combine and in between 
add 1 tbsp of flour to avoid the batter to be curdled.
Add Vanilla Extract.

Add the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt) and milk alternating
into the butter mixture in 3 batches.  Make sure the last batch will be flour.
Mix well.

Pour half of the batter into prepared pan. Sprinkle half of the streusel mixture.
Pour the balance batter on top of the streusel.  Lastly, sprinkle the balance
of the streusel on top of the batter.
Bake until golden brown or tester comes out clean.


Cool the cake before cutting.
Serve with you favourite drink.

Have a good weekend.

Thai Minced Pork with Basil

Thai Minced Pork with Basil
 Thai Basil Pork or Chicken are the most popular street food
dish in all of Thai cuisine especially if Thais are in a hurry
or don't know what to order. Same goes to our family. 
It is a dish with rice, fried egg, some sliced tomato and cucumber. 
It is not a difficult dish to cook and inexpensive also.
I bet your family or friends will love to eat this dish, 
so why wait further.....go now and cook it!

*Note : The above photo is chicken meat, I have totally forgotten
to take the pork photo because we were too engross having our dinner.

300g of Minced Pork
6 Chilies
8 - 10 cloves of Garlic
Handful of Basil Leaves

1 1/2 tablespoon of Oyster Sauce
1 tablespoon of Soya Sauce
1 teaspoon of Sugar
1 teaspoon of Dark Soya Sauce

Using mortar and pestle, pound the Chilies and Garlic (no need to super fine).
or alternatively mince them with knife.  

 Heat up 2 tablespoons of cooking oil and add the pounded chilies
and garlic. Stir fry until really fragrant but not burnt or too dry.

 Add minced pork.  Stir fry continuously.  Cook the pork until about
fully cooked (around 2 - 3 minutes).  If its get dry, splash some
hot water.

 Add in the sauces and keep stir frying for another 30 minutes
or less.  Lastly add the Basil Leaves and mix well quickly and 
immediately turn off the fire.  The basil leaves only needs to cook
for another 5 seconds, and it will continue to wilt from the hot meat or pot,
so don't worry that the basil will not be cooked.  If the basil cook
for too long, it will be chewy and loses it glorious flavour.
Once done, set aside.  
By looking at this photo again, already wanted to cook this dish again.

It's a note from my son to my daughter before he flies to UK to study.

"Take care of yourself and parents too.
Accompany them more as I'm not around especially Mum.
Study hard and aim for 2 A*s this time."

He is so adorable and loving writing this note to my daughter.

children.  Both of them doing great in their academic (never fail us
in their outstanding results), filial children to their parents and
grand parents. Wishing them more success and have a great life ahead.
