Chap Go Mei Dinner
Soaked some buah keluak as I wanted to make it for the dinner with friends, but as these buah keluak have been kept for so long, I was afraid that half might be bad and not useable. So did not make them and kept them for the dinner tonight. But my goodness, only 2 were not good, the rest were as good as black gold. Pun intended!
Initially thought it was just going to be us 2 old foggies again, but then I thought it was the last day of CNY, I invited the children back. So last night cooked the buah keluak and the babi pongteh first as they need time to cook. And digressing a little, I think I mentioned it before in my previous buah keluak post, no need to go through all that trouble to ketok them with a hammer or the lesong but just hand them to Pat who uses a band saw to cut them. Simple! hehe. Anyway, back to dinner....
So tonight, just prepared and cooked the fish tempra and szechuan green beans with minced pork.
