She made Chai Kueh last week. As usually la...when in the wet market, she sees nice and fresh green vegetables, she beh tahan will go and buy one. Buy, buy buy...but slow when it comes to cooking,
Last weeken when she was digging in the fridge, she found a bunch of Chives(daun kucai) that is going to rot if not used soon. What to do ah? Wanna fry egg too much pulak.
Okay okay ...make Chives Chai Kueh la. Not sure what's the ingredients for the Chives Chai Kueh coz usually when she bought from the Pasar Malam, its Papa who ate it geh.
Errrr.......checked in a blog...saw one lady used Rice Flour instead of Tang Mien Fern. Okay la....hentam . Just hentam 1 cup of rice flour and half cup of tapioca flour, add some oil and salt. Pour in super-duper hot water. She got a very sticky dough. Roll the dough bit by bit into round shape but not before spreading generous amount of flour on the table.
Used a cup as cutter to cut the round shape. Stuffed the ingredients into the "skin" and seal it.
Hmm....now the problem. No banana leaves to layer wor...how ah...but we have abundance of daun Kadok in the garden. Plucked some. Again pakai hentam and put everything into the wok and steam la.
"Oh my kucing.....", she said. The whole house
stinks reeks smells of daun Kadok after like 15minutes of steaming. She is not particularly like the smell of daun kadok but Papa is okay with it.
Anyway...when the steaming is all done and the kueh is cooked, it was Papa who finished off the whole tray of Chai Kueh. When Mamarazzi asked whether the Chives Chai Kueh tasted okay ka...he was surprised...huh? got Chives in it meh?
I think Papa had invented new way of eating Chai Kueh. He ate it with the Daun Kadok too.
Nothing left for me when I came back from school But I don't mind la. I get to eat mango. I love to eat mango and I discovered that the seed is the sweetest part of a mango.
