Arrowroot Soup with Pork Ribs and Peanuts

Walking through a wet market can be truly exciting. Looking at the ingredients on sale at each stall can be a discovery. What caught my eye at the SS17, Petaling Jaya morning wet market was this arrowroot “Fun Kot” that looks similar to tapioca. Arrowroot is use make to powder and used as thicken agent in cooking. I had tried this arrowroot in a soup dish and it tasted really nice. Without any hesitation, I bought one and decided to make a go with it in my kitchen.

This Sliced Smoked Breast Duck Yee Sang was truly unique, something very delightful and interesting. It infused the whole Yee Sang dish with strong bursting flavours. I liked it as it was something new with a twist of western influence. I truly recommend this if you are dining here this Chinese New Year.

Pickled Lotus Root

This is a very simple dish, yet delicious, very refreshing and suitable to endulge before starting having your dinner. This delicate dish is called pickled lotus root. All you need is some fine shreaded lotus root, washed and cleaned. Marinated it in salt for 5 minutes and wash off the salt. The marinate the shredded lotus roots with sugar, a bit of vinegar and lots of lemon juice ( if you like spice, you can put some fresh chillies)

Once ready you will notice that the shredded lotus root taste crunchy and with a hint of lychee taste. The next coming post, I will post my latest creation, mini Buddha jump over the wall (mini futt till cheong). So see you soon.

From myself, Steven Cheng
