Fried Chinese New Year Sticky Cake

Fried sticky cake is a very famous street snack in Malaysia.
The CNY sticky cake was sandwiched between one yam slice and another sweet potato slice, then coated with batter and deep fried until golden color.
If the oil temperature was too high, the yam or sweet potato would be still raw(hard to bite). But if the oil temperature was too low, then it would become to oily.
So, I pre-steamed the yam and sweet potato slices for about 3-5 mins.
And the texture turned out just right.

Finally I made Cendol at home.
It was Saturday afternoon, the weather was burning hot outside.
No one would like to go out and buy some cold drinks.
Nevermind, I was going to make Cendol.
Cendol in ready package from Jusco Supermarket,
Palm sugar from Malacca,
Coconut Milk bought from wet market in the morning...
and most important, ice cubes.

Prawn Wantan

Woke up at 7.30 this morning to prepare breakfast.
I did not have minced meat in the refrigerator, so I made prawn wantan.
Could you tell it is prawn wantan from the picture?

Green Bean Soup

Just the normal green bean sago soup.
Rock sugar was substituted with the palm sugar that I have brought back from Malacca.
If I am not lazy, I will make Cendol with the palm sugar next week.

Grilled Seafood

I prepared this
Ikan Bakar sauce on Sunday night. It has lots of garlic, shallot, red chilli and bird's eye chilli. I have also added in tamarind and coconut milk during stir fry. On Monday night, I used it to grill stingrays and squids. But I have no photos to show as I have left my camera in office again. Guess everyone is used to it.

On the following day after work, I passed by Pak Mat Ikan Segar stall. Since there is some leftover sauce, I have grilled seafood for dinner again. :)
