i recently made the best pencai ็›†่œ for CNY eve reunion dinner at my brother’s house, so thought of doing that this evening for my RI bros.

#1 piggy jump over the wall

and to experiment with buddha jump over the wall.

since i am already having pencai ็›†่œ, so i used cheaper ingredients like pig trotters and belly instead and called it “piggy jump over the wall”. lol!

#1 piggy jump over the wall

turned out that this (the soup) was the best dish.

i think at least one bro had 3 bowls of soup.

so i had trotters & a SKINLESS chicken leg (thigh plus drumstick) to provide a very sweet, tasty, gelatinous soup base, then added belly pork, fish maw, sea cucumber, chicken breast and each at the right timing to deliver great texture.

#1 piggy jump over the wall

a truly delightful dish.

the fish maw, belly pork and mushrooms perfect texture and very well infused and tasty.

the gravy was not as good as what i served at my brother’s place on CNY eve.

#3 trotters and belly pork

#3 trotters and belly pork

the teochew braised trotters and belly pork was very good.

texture was perfect, gelatinous and the braise was very tasty.

#4 salted egg prawns

the first time i made salted egg prawns using my own sauce.

#4 salted egg prawns

prawns were done the same, coated with egg yoke and cornflour and shallow-fried for 1 min to golden.

#4 salted egg sauce

the last time, i used a ready made sauce. it (the sauce) was not that good even though the prawns were done well.

so this time i decided to make my own sauce. this evening i served 15 prawns, so i decided 3 salted egg yokes would be enough, and it was. so fried the salted egg yokes with 2 twigs of curry leaves and 1 cut chilli padi.

the salted egg prawn dish came out quite perfect, with great salted egg flavours and slight powdery texture, just right! ๐Ÿ™‚

#5 scallops with leek

i did the scallops and leek dish. was going to use broccoli but already had broccoli for pencai ็›†่œ so use leek instead. my friends said the leek really tasty.

#5 scallops

i used 20 large scallops.

#5 leeks

for the sauce i fried leek with oyster sauce and added intense chicken stock.

#6 HK steamed golden snapper (ang choe)

#6 HK steam golden snapper (ang choe)

for the golden snapper (ang choe), i decided to do the usual HK steamed.

fish was good, the flavours of the light soy sauce very fragrant.

#7 salted fish minced pork egg white fried rice

i made salted fish minced pork egg white fried rice. the colour and presentation very appetizing. more importantly wokhae was wonderful and teh salted fish flavours very pang!

i fried the the salted fish and minced prok first then added cooked rice high fire, mixed thoroughly and set aside.

when serving, i fried eg white (this time i used 5 egg whites), let it formed and then added the fried rice and folded in the egg whites. a lovely dish. i took 2 servings myself.

#8 orh lua – oyster omelette

and i made orh lua – oyster omelette. it was hawker standard? almost la.. still cannot quite compare. oyster and chilli was good, the crispy sweet potato flour quite ok.

#! piggy jump over the wall

very satisfying evening for me.

the RI bros we had a great enjoyable evening together, and for me i had the opportunity to successfully deliver 2 new dishes (a very great satisfaction la!)=

  1. the buddha jump over the wall
  2. and the salted egg prawns.

for the bros also, the pencai ็›†่œ, egg white fried rice and orh lua were all new dishes.

a really fun evening! ๐Ÿ™‚
