Recipe Ah Wong Chai’s Lamb Curry

curry lamb

When I saw this photo recipe at Ah Wong Chai’s facebook I knew I must give this recipe a try. I took his recipe and improvised to suit pressure cooking. More prep work is needed this time, and pan frying the ingredients is needed before placing into the pressure cooker. Coat the lamb with the mixture, placed the ingredients into the pressure cooker pot close the cover and start cooking.

Scrumptious satay - chicken & beef
Beef & Chicken Satay

Nor dragged me to have a wonderful meal recently at the Temptations located at Renaissabce Kuala Lumpur. I had been here once a year ago and I know I was up for an enjoyable meal. A modern chic restaurant yet with real appealing comfortable setting had made me wanted to stay even longer, great to have it buffet. Something I love to be especially dining with some close friends. As I walked in I just can’t help noticing the smell of the freshly grillied satay. It was such fragrantly sweet and biting into a stick was just heavenly felt, tender and juciy as always.

The Way to Indulge A Duck. . . . . !

AROMATIC & CRISPY DUCK

This dish is served and eaten in the same way as Peking Duck -wrapped in a pancake along with shredded spring onion, cucumber sticks and Hoi Sin sauce. I prefer to add spicy dry prawn chilli paste, very oishi delicious. In a restaurant, this dish can be much conviniently served than Peking Duck because a quantity of duck can be precooked in the marinade or cooking sauce and put aside. When required, they are simply deep-fried for 10-11minutes and served, bcause of th final deep-frying, the duck meat will invariably be crisper and without the care and precise timing required when preparing and cooking traditional Peking Duck.

Gosh, I got to admit that I can have half of a duck all by myself, you must try this recipe as it is pretty awesoe, simple and yet not difficult at all. You can even prepare it a day earlier, just deep fry when need to serve. If not try at your nearest chinese restaurant or if you are in Petaling Jaya, you can drop by the CUBES . . . . . . yours SidneyK
