So you guys have been asking for my sticky braised drummets recipe. Here you go! I love how simple it is to make yet it's so sedap!
1 kg chicken drummets
4 tbsps oyster sauce
3 tbsps light soya sauce
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/4 cup honey
1 tbsp worchestire sauce
5 cloves garlic minced
1/2 inch ginger minced
1. Clean and pat dry the drummets.
2. Mix all the ingredients into a paste and rub it all over the drummets. Marinate for at least an hour or overnight if you like.
3. You can either bake them in the oven. Preheat the oven to 180°C and line the drummets on the baking tray. Bake for 20-25 mins until done, turning occasionally. Baste the chicken with some of the marinade sauce.
4. Or you can braise them in a pot/saucepan over the stove like I did. Just arrange the drummets in a pot, pour the marinade sauce over and braise over low heat for 15-20 mins until the sauce thickens.Turn occasionally so that the drummets are all coated with the sticky sauce :) And what I love about the @lecreuset 's flower buffet casserole is that you can cook and serve from the stove to the table and it's so pretty 🌸🌸🌸 Enjoy!!
Always keep a bag of frozen vegetables in the freezer cos you may be too busy to get the groceries and you need to feed the kids some greens.
It was a very busy morning with me and bunny girl at the hospital to get her occasional headaches checked out then rushed home to send the eldest for her tuition. Cooked simple porridge for the recovering child and braised ribs with noodles for the rest.
And did I say how much I love my pressure cooker? Just pop marinated ribs with the marinade sauce (soya sauce, oyster sauce, dark soya sauce, sugar, pepper and fermented beans aka tau cheong) along with some garlic and carrots in the pressure cooker and cook for 30mins. Add in the frozen broccoli and Yee mee. Taste and season if need be, thicken the sauce with some beaten eggs. Easy peasy dinner.
This is my late granma's recipe. When we were little she will whip up this afternoon snack just simply to feed us. Sometimes if we were nice kids and behaved well she would make it for breakfast too. My late granma was a very quiet but loving lady. And I miss her cooking alot. Through cooking we feel her love towards us. It's been almost 3 years since she's gone but I'm grateful that I got to learn this from her.
Am thankful for opportunity given by Abirami from The Star to be featured in their regular food/cooking column. Helped me to think back and share the food my late granma used to cook for us with the rest of the world.
GULA MELAKA PANCAKES
Makes 8-10 pieces
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tbsp coconut milk powder
1 cup water
a pinch of salt
2 tbsp oil
oil, for frying
1 small piece gula Melaka, chopped
To make pancakes
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, eggs and coconut powder. Gradually add in the water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and oil; beat until smooth. The batter should be slightly thinner compared to regular pancake batter.
Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan. Scoop the batter onto the griddle. Tilt the pan in a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
Cook the pancake for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Sprinkle the chopped gula Melaka on top, loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.
