Steam Herbal Chicken

We love to cook this Steamed Herbal Chicken at least once or twice every fortnightly either half portion of chicken, chicken wings or chicken drumsticks depending what we prefer on that week. If you have some ready Chinese Herbs at home, it is actually better to use that rather than getting premixed spices from supermarkets.

There are many different methods in preparing this dish where some might prefer stronger herbal taste or lighter. My method here might be different from your so this is just for reference and sharing you can always add or remove ingredients which is not accessible on your end.

Kueh Salat

This was my 2nd attempt on making Kueh Salat which is a typical Nonya Snack which made of glutinous rice, eggs and coconut milk! I do admit it's a bit tricky when comes to making the custard layer because it tends to get harden while you are trying to boil the coconut milk. My family and I love this tea snack and we are glad that it turns out good with wobble custard layer and soft glutinous rice below.

Steamed Crab With Glutinous Rice

Saw this interesting dish from a Chinese New Year recipe book and I decided to give it a try. And after searching one of the main ingredients; Crab for a few days I finally bought one this morning. So after soaking the glutinous rice for a few hours, season it with seasoning we are ready to place the crab on it and off it goes into the bamboo steamer. If you don't have any bamboo steamer you can just use any of a suitable size pot and steaming plate too.
