During this time especially in winter, yam bean or jicama would be in season.  I find them plentiful in Asian stores and cheap too.  So what do I do with these yam bean.   Teochew Chai Kueh is simple to make.    There are many ways to wrap the dumplings.  Do whatever is easier for you.   The most important in this recipe is the almost transparent looking dumpling and the crunchiness from the yam bean.   This kueh is great for morning or afternoon tea… or any time of the day.

I haven’t made Nyonya Satay for a long time and I know that it has been a vanishing skill to make it.  I haven’t seen Nyonya Satay around for long time too, it is probably rare to see it in Malaysia or Singapore.  Have you eaten any?  If yes, do tell us where you’ve seen it.

So, I dug out the recipe and gladly share it with you.  I use pork in this recipe but you are welcomed to use chicken or beef.  This uniqueness in this recipe is the dipping sauce.   The thickness from the sauce is from sweet potato puree.

Pulut Inti is another popular Nyonya Kuih and I guarantee you, it is the easiest to make.    “Pulut” means glutinous rice and “Inti” is the filling.   I’ve always known Bunga Telang as the two Malay words or Blue Pea/Clitoria ternatea for some.  It is widely available in Malaysia, Singapore or in the Asian countries.  Well, in Australia, I get them specially flown in from Brisbane.   The blue extract gives out this beautiful natural color for the glutinous rice.  Here’s how to make.  Try it and let me know how you went..
