Galangal (Blue Ginger) Chicken Curry 蓝姜咖喱鸡

Since LTU theme this month is Potato, so I have to rush to put up this recipe chicken curry, and curry must have potato then taste better. I got this idea to cook this chicken curry using blue ginger after tasted a nice chicken curry from a Hainanese rice stall. Their chicken curry has a special aroma, after  few times trying, then I confirmed that special aroma was from blue ginger. And this chicken curry is much healthy without putting coconut milk, but yet the curry sauce still taste creamy and thick, and yummy too.

Bandit Chicken Wings 土匪雞翼

From a TV food show, I learnt that this 土匪雞翼 (direct translate become Bandit Chicken Wings) is very famous now in Hong Kong. This roasted chicken wings using one of the most important ingredient in the recipe is Cumin powder 孜然粉.
I don't know why this roasted chicken wings named as Bandit chicken wings , but according to here, those bandit robbers not only robbed  luxury items but also household spices. The local people who stayed a few miles away can smell the nice aroma of the wings when the bandit robbers used the spices to roast chicken wings.  Thus they would know those bandits were not far from them and they could take precautions of those bandits.

Economic Fried Bee Hoon (Fried Rice Vermicelli) 经济炒米粉

Economic fried bee hoon (simple stir fried rice vermicelli) is a typical breakfast for Malaysian Chinese and I guess Singaporean also eating this way. The most economic version is just simple fried mee hoon, and pour with some curry sauce and sambal chili. If you want more luxury version, you can ask to add fried luncheon meat, fish balls, sausages and fried egg with extra money. Like my version here is consider luxury version of Economic fried bee hoon ^_^.

Mini Sausage Bread Rolls 迷你香肠面包卷

The other day I saw my sister bought some mini sausage bread rolls  from a nearby bakery shop. She told me this sausage bread roll was good but it cost RM 1 for a mini roll. I told her next time I will make for her. I love the texture of Champion toast recipe, so I use this recipe to twist it into basic sweet bread. As per what I expected, these rolls still stayed soft even kept till the next day. Furthermore this bread dough is easy to handle and it is a straight dough method..
