Organic Red Rice Fried Rice (Gluten Free & Vegetarian)

Pouched Fried Rice, Organic Red Rice Fried Rice

I guess everyone love fried rice. I can eat Fried Rice everyday for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even supper. It is simply delicious! The first time I attempted to Fried Rice my own was 18 and my parents went to Bukit Mertajam (脚), and I cooked for my three brothers. Brief introduction, Bukit Mertajam is a small town located in Butterworth, mainland, Penang. 

To get a prefect Fried Rice, remember always use chilled left-over rice. Cook the rice one day before. Keep the rice in the refrigerator to dry out a bit. To much moisture in the rice will make it heavy mess in the pan. Do not constantly poking at the rice, the grains will break and release too much starch and turn the entire thing gooey. The best thing is to spread the rice evenly in the pan, let it heat up for a few second, 1 2 3 4 5...flip, toss and redistribute the rice, again spreading it out and leaving it alone to cook for another side.

Anson's Preserved Turnips Chee Cheong Fun

Anson's Preserved Turnips Chee Cheong Fun

We found Anson's Chee Cheong Fun in Nang King Kopitiam at Taipan, USJ. This typical Anson's CCF is eaten with pickled green chillies. There is no sauce for this Anson's CCF. They do provide sweet sauce and chilli sauce if you request. It is only  MYR3.40/USD1.00 for a packet, two pieces CCF and some pickled green chillies. I do not have the photo of this stall but you can find them in Nang King Kopitiam. (Opposite Pappa Rich Kopitiam)

Teluk Intan is a small town in Perak, formerly known as Teluk Anson "Anson".  My husband and I went there while travelling north during Chinese New Year two years ago.  My aunt is staying in Ipoh and she told me there is a famous CCF factory in Anson and just a five minutes drive from the famous Anson's Leaning Clock Tower.

Sugar Free Fruit Cake

Serves 8

I have baked this Sugar Free Fruit Cake loaf that is moist and fruity but much lighter than a traditional Fruit Cake. It is sugar free and butter free Fruit Cake. My father has diabetes but can still indulge his sweet tooth, as the cake has no added sugar. It is healthy, delicious, moist and fruity cake - smell so great and can be eaten as a cake or as a tea bread with warm butter and a cup of hot cappuccino.

Fruits Custard Cream Puff Pastry

Makes 10 pieces

Puff pastry, called that because of its puffed-up appearance when baked is made from layers of rolled-out dough topped with butter then stacked together. The fat between the layers steams as it is baked and creates light, flaky layers. Puff pastry has countless uses including Croissants, Napoleons, and even savory pastry sticks.
