The Zhang(Chinese Dumplings) Madness Season begins

If not mistaken 23rd of this month is the Duan Wu Jie Festival. 

Last week, Mamarazzi's Zhang making madness started. 

For me, TV marathon begins lor. Mamarazzi no time to layan(entertain) me.

Bought a box of Salted Eggs. 

50 eggs for RM34-50.

peeled away the black thingy

Aiyo!!! Mana tau..out of the 50...46 were rotten!!!

Mamarazzi was so mad that she went back to the shop and "show" the whole stinky box of rotten eggs to the Boss.

The Boss said he no longer take stock from that particular supplier and he replaced a new box of eggs for Mamarazzi.

This round only 1 was rotten.

Also bought the usual stuffs. Black eyes bean, dried shrimps and dried Crest nut.

 Soaked the beans in hot water overnight. She used hot water coz she was worried that the beans might grew roots overnight.

also soaked the Crest nut overnight. Then had to peel away the brown skin if any left.

the meat. Can use Chicken meat too. Marinated overnite with 5 spice powder, dark sauce, light sauce, salt and sugar.  

Dried Scallop and Dried Oyster.

 Sorry ya, Sifu. Used rafia string. The other type of string very easy to break coz Mamarazzi very ganas.

 A few hours later...jeng jeng!!! Not bad la for the first batch. Usually first batch that Mamarazzi makes is not that nice.
 Then Papa said he like Mung Beans better than Black Eye bean. There goes another round of Zhang making.

Then Mamarazzi saw Nyonya Zhang. Tried making Nyonya Zhang pulak. But hers is green instead of blue.

After Papa had three Nyonya Zhang, he suggested adding Mung Bean. There goes another round or Zhang making.

Then Papa said school holidays...jom go see Ah's another round of Zhang making...This round was Kan Shui(alkaline) Zhang.

That was how we end up with a freezer and fridge full of Zhangs.

Happy to say that now Mamarazzi had distributed all the Zhang. Now the freezer is free once again to store my Ais Krim Potong(Ice-Cream). Yipeee!!!!

    The black thingy out side is to preserve the egg.

    Usually salted eggs is made of duck eggs and after being preserved for sometime, the egg yolk would harden and turn to golden orange colour
