Sometimes I wish I had the patience to write down all their recipes so I could share these next time.
This is 'Chai Ban'. Chai Ban is a traditional Hakka dish. My mother-in-law learnt it from my husband's second aunt. [Ok, omit the relationship thing...its a bit confusing to write]. My mum learnt it from her mum. It's a pass down from China.
The outer layer is a mixture of rice flour which I'm yet to master. Then, its hours of labouring making it into bowl like shapes before inserting the fillings. - I've only gone up to the 'make a bowl ' stage.
The fillings are a mixture of vegetables and mince meat. I personally love the salted vegetable and pork filling. Just makes my day!
Here's another one I should really take on. My mum's Pandan Cake. My friends have been perfecting these recently...but I'm one lazy bugger that hasnt learnt anything from my mum except for being her food critique!
Mum's pandan are so fluffy and moist. I never buy shop ones coz they just cant compare.
There's so much more I need to learn before I can show my culinary skills. Come on new kitchen!...lets strut our stuff!!
