Kopitiam Milk Buns / Plain Milk Buns 甜牛奶面包

I have posted Chicken & Potatoes milk buns, chocolate milk buns and wholemeal milk buns using the same overnight sponge dough(milk) recipe. But I almost forgotten to post this basic and plain milk buns which I did much earlier than all these buns. This very soft milk buns don't need much introduction, very popular among Chinese bloggers. And this buns look so old fashioned like those served in kopitiam (local café) in the old time, serve together with kaya (coconut egg jam) and butter.

Stir fried Chicken Wing tips 炒豆鼓鸡翅尖

A chicken wing comes with 3 parts :- the drumette, middle wing, and the tip (end) . After I cooked the middle wing and the drumette, left only the tips which not many peoples appreciate this especially the kids. But I like to chew the skin which is crunchy, chewy and tasty. Usually I just deep fry it but this time I simply stir fried with salted soy bean, it was tasty and delicious!

Loh Mee is quite common in Tai Chou (noodles stall) in KL and Selangor, but Ulu Yam Loh Mee has slight difference as they pre-added dark vinegar into the soup.

Hokkien Stir-fried White Rice Cake 福建炒白粿

Beside Hokkien Mee, this stir-fried white rice cake also quite popular in "Tai Chow" hawker stalls in Selangor and KL. Hokkien people call this as "Char Pei Ker" . "Pei Ker" refer to white rice cake, and "Char" is stir fried.
This white rice cake itself is plain and no taste, so we have to add other ingredients like meat and vegetable and seasonings to make it tasty. We love the QQ texture of this white rice cake after cooked.

Kuih Talam Ubi (Tri-colours tapioca steamed cake) 三色木薯糕

Today also about tri-colours, but this time is kuih-muih (local cakes). We like this very pure Kuih Talam Ubi, all using natural ingredients, green layer is made with pandan leaves (screwpines leaves), orange layer is made with sweet potatoes and whereas the pale yellow layer is made with tapioca. I feel this is also a perfect kuih to serve during Puasa month ( In few days time, our Muslims friends will be having Puasa).
