mutant puffs & tea treasures

In food on August 20, 2006 by carinasuyin


Ah Tan mengidam nak buat karipap lately so we tried making some for tea today while Ah Chan prepared the stuff to cook for dinner. We used the recipe from Jo’s Deli & Bakery as Ah Tan wanted the flaky-spiral-ish kind of pastry. The filling consisted of cubes of potato and chicken meat cooked in curry sauce and we added small chunks of hard-boiled egg. The chinese pastry skin was quite difficult to get right at first. Somehow we managed to mess up the oil and water dough proportions and ended up with really fluffy mini puffs that crumbled at the slightest bite. We also didn’t have the plastic shape-maker so we sealed and made the edges the old-fashioned way- tekan, penyek, lipat, ulang sampai hujung. Hee… though they looked a little kerepot, they tasted really yummy!

In the evening, every single Mediacorp channel was showing the National Day Rally live telecast (to which Ah Tan woefully proclaimed “So sienzzz!!”), so we watched RTM1 instead and had a cultural exchange session with Dandan. Ah Tan also made us each a cup of Six Treasures tea that is supposed to be Eight Treasures but alas, two ingredients were missing. A little peculiar-tasting because it is sweet, sour and bitter all at once, but really pleasant for our aktiviti bersilaturahim after dinner a.k.a. chor dai ti!

  2. Hee bagus, next time when you’re back in Msia, can join our makan marathons! Unless you wanna host one in Daejeon? Then we go Koreaaaaaaaaaa πŸ˜›

  3. Sure. That’ll be great. It’ll be something like the CJK meeting that we always have. China, Japan and Korea. In this case we can have KMS – Korea, Malaysia and Singapore. πŸ™‚

    I can host one in Daejeon soon. Just hope that you’re all partial to silkworms and fresh octopuses like MT. Hehehe… πŸ˜‰

  5. the soothsayer: Okie dokie, as long as you only tell me that they’re silkworms after I’ve chewed and swallowed completely. πŸ˜›

    juan carlos morgado: The curry puffs taste better than they look in the photos! May the rest of your week be lovely too!

  6. Yum Yum Yum!!!!!!!!!

  7. MT is dreaming of the silkworms again. πŸ˜‰

    How about coming here to make silkworm karipap? They taste just like dried shrimp and you can use them as an ingredient in the curry.

  8. mt: yeah yeah yeah πŸ™‚

    the soothsayer: Aiks! *pengsan*
