This steamed chicken with Sand Ginger powder dish is very simple and delicious.  It's a traditional Chinese dish, best served with steamed rice and ginger and scallion dipping.

Steamed Chicken with Ginger Powder01

Simple is the best. You can’t imagine how nice the taste of this steamed chicken was. The chicken meat is so tender and silky smooth, steamed to just cooked. If you like the traditional, popular Chinese steamed chicken (白切雞), you have to try this dish as well, if you haven’t.

Try to use organic or free-range chicken if you can to ensure the best result. Having said that, I used corn-fed chicken this time. So, that’s why my steamed chicken was in bright, lovely yellow colour. The end result remained wonderfully good.

How nice would it be when having a tasty dish of chicken curry with a bowl of hot rice?

Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry01

I always love to cook this Chicken and Sweet Potato Curry with Thai red curry paste. The curry paste is handy to use and got all the necessary spices in it already. Sometimes going for such a modern convenience is a good ending of a hectic day with a tasty, yummy, juicy dish for dinner like this.

This dish looks so humble, yet with rich flavours absorbed by the sweet potatoes. Oh, I nearly forget to mention the little greens. They are our favourite extras in curry too.

Spicy Pork Ramen Noodle Stir Fry

by · 3 comments
Ever tried to make fresh ramen noodle stir fry? The slightly chewy texture of fresh ramen noodles is so nice and perfect for stir-frying. It won’t easily turn soggy even you add sauce into it. Needless to say, it’s healthy. Once you try the fresh ramen noodles, you won’t turn back to the fried or dried ones.

Spicy Pork Ramen Noodles Stir-Fry01

This time I used fresh ramen noodles to stir-fry with pork and some vegetables leftover in my fridge.

I recommend not to skip the two special condiments in the sauce ingredient list. They’ll make the whole dish stand out totally. The chilli bean sauce (豆瓣醬) brings in a hint of heat and the black vinegar (黑醋) will balance the saltiness.
