Char Siew Pau

Didn't know this is even possible! DH Friesland Lannie gave us this link from http://mykitch3n.blogspot.nl/2009/04/char-siew-bao.html and I must say it is good!

Always thought I have to run to a dim sum restaurant for these. I still need to practise pleating the top of the dough. Or maybe I would try substituting meat with chicken or even try curry fillings.


Yummy! My sis told me coincidently there is a Pau Challenge called "Aspiring Bakers #31 Bao Ho-Chiak Challenge" organized by Miss B of http://everybodyeatswell.blogspot.be/2013/05/aspiring-bakers-31-bao-ho-chiak.html  

Small Small Baker/Aspiring Bakers

 So I am joining in the fun with my amateur pau !

Panna Cotta

Asked my sis for a simple panna cotta recipe. One that I do not even have to look at a recipe. And I got this. Very simple indeed.

I wanted to try this process on tau foo faa/ soya bean curd as I can't find gypsum powder over here. DH Friesland said go ahead and try agar agar too. So I did.

I bought a packet of soya milk and another with chocolate flavour and experimenting heating them with a sheet of gelatine. The green is soya milk with agar agar powder. I think it is okay. Instant tau foo faa hahahaha...
