Singapore Chinese Food (Recipes)


While there are at least ten Chinese dialects being spoken in Singapore each with its own special dishes, there are five major groups that you'll most likely encounter.

Canton is where all Chinese want to eat. Cantonese food is world famous especially its Dim Sum and Wanton soup. If you'd eaten in a Chinese restaurant outside China, it's most likely Cantonese food.


The Hakkas are famous for their Yong Tao Foo(literally means stuffed tofu). Originally filled with minced pork flavoured with salted fish, the hawker version consists of a variety of boiled vegetable filled with fish paste that comes either with various sauces or as a soup. Hakkas are in many ways similar to the Jews, they are migrants that spread throughout the World from Surinam to Malaysia and has a very strong ethnic identity. Thrifty and hardworking, their origin, though definitely Chinese, is still a big mystery.

The Teochews are famous for its fish ball noodles(especially Mee Pok - flat egg noodles), porridge and steamed dishes. Unlike Cantonese porridge(sometimes called congee), Teochew porridge is watery and plain that comes with a variety of small dishes. We often see Teochew porridge as a sick bed food, simply because it seems so healthy! There is a considerable amount of Teochews in Thailand, and if you're familiar with Thai Chinese food, you'll recognise the the Teochew influence.


Next, there is the well known Hainanese from the island of Hainan. Chicken Rice, boiled chickens seem simple enough, yet a really good stall is hard to find even in Singapore! Less fancy as the name may sound as compared to Chili Crab or Fish head curry which are competing to be the unofficial national dish, the popularity of this dish easily beats the two. Take a look at our Hainanese Chicken Rice Quest page.

Last, the Hokkiens, together with its sub groups like the Hock Jiu and Hock Chia, make up the largest Chinese ethnic group in Singapore and definitely has a lot to offer. Oyster omelette, Char Kway teow and Hokkien Mee top the list and yam rice and sweet potato porridge more a novelty these days.

books Es, Ice Alpokat Recipe - How to make


"Es Alpokat, Es Alpukat or Es Apokay" is a must have when you visit your neighbourhood Indonesian restaurant, or make it something you must have on your next trip to Indonesian restaurants in Singapore. There is a chocolate of coffee variation which is traditionally served over ice in Indonesia. However, I personally think the smoothie version is the best. The Indonesians love a glass as an afternoon snack. Using whole avocados makes it very filling and nutritious!

Although the western version uses vanilla ice cream, the Indonesians make thiers with condensed milk. I've included the coffee and chocolate "Es Alpukat" recipes for you to try out in your own homes! Enjoy!
Es Alpukat ( with Chocolate Syrup)

Ingredients

2 ripe avocados, peeled and seeded
5 tbsp. granulated raw sugar
1 tbsp. sweetened chocolate syrup
1 tsp. sweetened condensed milk Method

1. Put 1 cup crushed ice, 3 tbsp. water, avocados, and sugar into a blender and purée until smooth and sugar has dissolved, about 1 minute.
2. Divide between two tall 10-oz. glasses and pour chocolate syrup and milk into each glass. Serve with a spoon and straw.

Es Alpukat (with Chocolate Milk)
 
Ingredients

240ml (12 tbsp) Chocolate Milk;
120ml (6 tbsp) Cold Cow’s Milk (Semi-Skimmed or Full Fat);
100ml (5 tbsp) Water;
100g (5 tbsp) Sugar;
Two Ripe Avocado Pears (remove crocodile skin, cut in half lengthwise and remove the stones);
One handful Crushed Ice.

Method

Make a simple sugar syrup by combining the sugar and the water in a small saucepan over a medium-high heat. Stir until the liquid is becomes clear. Remove from heat and let cool. Spoon out the avocado pulp and place in a blender (you could use a hand blender and make up the smoothies in the cups, it saves on the washing up later). Add the syrup mixture and blend. Add the cold milk and blend again. Divide between 2 tall glasses. Top each serving with 1/2 the chocolate milk (to form a separate layer) and add the crushed ice.

Es Alpukat Kopi (Iced Avocado Coffee)


Ingredients

1/2 ripe large California avocado
1/3 cup espresso or 1 cup strong brewed coffee, cooled
1/2 cup sweetened condensed (not evaporated) milk
2 cups ice cubes
2 teaspoons vanilla

Method

Scoop avocado flesh into a blender, then purée with remaining ingredients until completely smooth, about 1 minute.


Facts:


Avocados provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They also act as a "nutrient booster" by enabling the body to absorb more fat-soluble nutrients, such as alpha and beta-carotene and lutein, in foods that are eaten with the fruit.

how to cook "fave" broad beans |Traditional Italian products


Central Italy has a long tradition of vegetables and legumes and in season at the moment is the traditional Italian product of “fave” or broad beans. While Umbria and Tuscany are famous for cereal and legumes, gustoblog says the best broad beans come from Leonforte in Sicily, and Carpino in Puglia where the ‘fave’ are smaller and tastier.

When buying broad beans, make sure that the pod is firm and is a bright green colour to get the freshest examples. The other trick to selecting broad beans is to be careful of how much you buy. The pod waste of broad beans can be about 70 percent of the weight of the whole lot you buy, so if for example you want 300 gr, you should purchase about a kilo.

You should shell broad beans only when you want to use them, because the beans dry up when in contact with air. To prepare broad boans for cooking, you should toss them into some boiling water first to remove the skins. You can then proceed to boil them for about 20-30 minutes. If the beans are small and tender, you can try them raw - I’ve seen people shell broad beans and eat them straight away as an Italian antipasto. Coming up, we’ll have a traditional fave recipe to share.

Mexican traditional cooking techniques

In ancient times, Mexicans did not have ovens. Instead, they have Mexican food on the fire, which is the most traditional of all Mexican cooking techniques was the cook.

The food should be placed in iron pots before cooking. The method is similar to Mexican cuisine we cook the food on the grillin those days. The Aztecs steamed and cooked food in two jars of clay, first run the vessels of the Spanish introduced iron cooking. These two vessels were treated exactly known. The pot would be filled with food and then heated over an open fire. For more help visit: www.cheese Cake recipes.com.A many foods were fried and Mexican cuisine offers up roast today.

Today, in the present, it is much easier to cook Mexican dishes. It takes less time to prepare food. If someone wants toof homemade tortillas, there are iron pans that make it easy. Pies are made simply by using pots to hinge. Long ago there was a long process of Mesa, to make a dish that is a type of corn, which must be ground covers. Today you can buy a metal grinder that can grind the Mesa.

If you make Mexican recipes, the oven is ideal for many of them. You can meat, fish, vegetables and easy to cook. You can also cook the food in a pot of water withSpices. Many Mexican recipes can even in a crock pot or slow cooker can be made. Large steaming pots simplify tamale cooking process. take a long time to cook, it means a big pot, you can cook everything at once, rather than in smaller lots.

Barbecue Mexican cuisine is enjoying a different type. Food used to be cooked in this way many years ago and was called "barbecue". For more help visit: www.cajuns recipes.com.With this method-Mexican cuisine is meat wrapped in banana leaves andCactus leaves and steamed over boiling water in a large pit. If you want to learn to cook Mexican food, this is not the easiest way for a beginner! Food cooked in this way would have a flavor similar to our grilled food of today. Fajitas are a good example of a perfect Mexican food to grill.

Mexicans, many years ago "mansion y change" is used, a large instrument with a concave surface was made of stone or lava rock. This tool was used to mix the ingredients together. "Malachite"is another ancient Mexican cooking tool, which translates into a mortar and pestle. They know these ancient cooking tools in a course in Mexican cuisine, although we use different tools now.

Cooking almost always requires stirring somewhere in the preparation. Spoons have been used for hundreds of years and are still widespread. There are different types of spoons today, depending on whether you move around meat in hot oil or stirring a thick sauce.
