teban gardens PPHCSC (pasir panjang hill community service centre) organised a cooking sharing session on 3.4.2019. ^^.

this my 6th cooking demo and sharing… 🙂

24 residents attended today.

i first started doing a community meal dish for teban gardens PPHCSC on 8.1.2016.

the centre was started in 2002 after much effort & challenge by our RI friend who is a pastor of pasir panjang hill brethren church (pphbc) which owns & runs the CSC.

i cooked a breakfast dish for teban gardens every friday unless i am travelling or otherwise unavailable.

i did my 88th friday breakfast community meal dish at teban gardens community service centre on 29.3.2019.

Recipe for salted egg prawns and garlic steamed sotong at the bottom page.

wasabi prawns, salted egg prawns, yuzu prawns all basically same preparation just add different sauce like wasabi mayo.

i don’t add milk or mayo in this recipe. my other variation is i don’t like deepfry as it takes and wastes a lot of oil and i don’t know what to reuse for, so i do shallow-fry just 1cm deep oil.

the salted egg prawns was fragrant and flavourful. ^^


minced garlic

garlic steamed sotong the easiest of preprarations.

basically it is just hk steamed and topped with minced garlic. the garlic gave it excellent flavours and is a common preparations for bamboo (razor) clams at restaurants, a heavenly sauce to add to plain rice la!
