I decided to cook loh mai kai for dinner on a Sunday. It is made from glutinous rice. It is a rice dish that will normally be served when you have your dim sum in a Chinese restaurant. You can make this dish in Philips All-In-One Cooker or thermomix, or even in a food steamer over the stove. Here is the recipe:
Last weekend I decided to make some Chinese steamed buns. However, I did not have the special Chinese bun flour from the oriental shop which would make my buns’ skin whiter. I decided to just use the Lighthouse brand extra white, low protein self-raising flour and the buns turned out just as good as the ones in the dim sum restaurant. Here is the recipe for the dough and filling of the buns:
Mee Hoon Kueh literally means wheat flour cake. It is my favourite childhood dish. It brings back the sweet memory of myself helping my mother rolling out the dough with a glass F&N bottle instead of a rolling pin. It is a popular dish in Malaysia and Singapore. I will make sure that I have a bowl of mee hoon kueh whenever I am back in Malaysia. Here is the recipe for it:
My sons love macaroni cheese. I decided to cook it in my Breville Flavour Maker because I will only need to wash the easy sear pan. It saves me from washing a few pots to prepare this dish.
Flavour Maker comes with an easy sear pan. I was able to sear the bacon bits in this pan over the stovetop and then once the searing process is done, I place back the sear pan into the slow cooker base and start the slow cooking function.
In order to make a good fried rice, it is best to use overnight cooked rice. I use my Buffalo Smart Cooker to cook the rice a day before I make my fried rice. Buffalo Smart Cooker makes fluffy delicious brown rice. It has a brown rice function. Therefore, you do not need to soak your brown rice before cooking. I normally use 3 cups of brown rice with 4 cups of water. It takes about 75 minutes to cook the brown rice.
I love eating noodles and pasta. Therefore, when Philips produced a noodle and pasta maker I was ecstatic. This maker makes the process of making noodles and pasta so easy. It is a fully automatic machine which allowed you to make all kinds of pasta and noodle in just 15 minutes for 500g of plain flour. Believe it or not! In addition, the cleaning process is effortless. It comes with a cleaning tool.
