My itchy hands wanted to cook yesterday, so I whipped up a spaghattie, potatoe pancake and a dessert.
Spaghattie with wine prawns, broccoli & baby bamboo shoot topped with chicken sausages tomatoe mushroom sauce.
Potatoe pancake. It comprised of green & yellow bell peppers & shredded potatoe & carrot, batter: a little flour, egg white, cold water, pepper & salt. Mixed together well. Pan fried till brown.
Dessert: Gingko nuts, lotus seed, beancurd sheet sweet soup (what a long name for this dessert, but in Chinese is 腐竹白果莲子糖水)Soak lotus seeds in water (I used dried lotus seed). 1 can of clear water ginko nuts (remove the small bud inside as it is very bitter). Soak also beancurd sheets. All these take less than half an hour.Then bring to boil about 2.5 to 3 litres of water with 4 knots of pandan leaves (to give aroma), then put all ingredients to boil for 1.5 hours. Add in sugar to taste. I used fructose instead of fine sugar to cut down on calorie intake.
