[YummyCooks] Stir Fry Potato Slices with Hot Pepper Paste

This dish came into my mind quickly when I was thinking what can I cook with ingredients I had in the fridge. I didn't refer to any recipes in the internet, so I created a real simple one myself. 

I have one tub on the Korean hot pepper paste but I seldom make use of it. I guess I have to find more recipes that needs the paste. What I can think of is Kimchi Fried Rice, Kimchi Soup and maybe Stir Fry Cabbage with hot pepper paste. 

Below will be the recipe for this dish:

3 to 4 servings


1 medium US Russet potato, thinly sliced
Half carrot, sliced
1 medium onion, sliced
1 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 tbsp hot pepper paste
1 small bowl of water (depends on your liking)
1 tsp soy sauce 


1. Boil sliced potato for 4 minutes. Make sure it is not too soft. Set aside.
2. In a frying pan, heat up 2 tbsp of oil in low to medium heat. Then, fry garlic and onion for 1 minute. 
3. Add in carrot, potato and tomato and fry for a while before adding in water. Add in the hot pepper paste and stir well. 
4. Let it boil for 3 to 5 minutes. Add water if it dries up quickly. 
5. Lastly, add soy sauce to taste.

[YummyBakes] Hokkaido Chiffon Cake

I realized I didn't share any recipes of my baking for the past few weeks. And here is one after so long. They said making Hokkaido Chiffon Cake is not easy. I don't believe them until I tried it for myself. The first time I made was a failed ones. The texture turn out to be hard. Definitely not a chiffon cake texture. Even the colour was pale. The second time I made turns out quite successful I guess its suitable to note down the recipe already. Thanks to my mum for the recipe. 

Ingredients needed for a basic hokkaido chiffon cake

Polka dots square muffin cups from Bake With Yen

 Makes about 6 big muffins (depending on the muffin cup size)


3 egg yolks
60gm milk
90gm all-purpose flour
40gm corn oil (I use melted butter instead)
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
30gm sugar
Strawberries for topping

3 egg whites
30gm sugar

Cream Filling
60ml whipping cream
1tsp instant custard powder
10gm sugar


1. In a mixing bowl, whisk egg yolks and sugar till pale in colour. Then, add oil and mix well.
2. Sift in flour in few batches. Add in vanilla essence. In between, mix in milk. Combine well and set aside.
3. In another bowl, beat egg whites using an electric hand mixer. Beat until foamy, and add in sugar little by little. Continue to beat the eggs until soft peak. (IF you are dare enough, turn the bowl upside down and make sure the meringue does not fall).
4. Take 1/3 of the meringue and stir lightly with the egg yolk batter. Then, continue to fold in the meringue lightly. DO NOT OVER STIR else your cake will turn hard. I realize there will be lumps of meringue still but I just make sure I don't over stir it.
5. Fill the batter in the muffin cups till 3/4 cup full. Bake in pre-heated oven for about 20-25 minutes and until the top turns golden brown.
6. For the filling, beat the whipping cream, sugar and custard powder using a electric hand mixer till soft peak. 
7. Transfer to a pastry bag and let it refrigerate. 
8. Make sure to leave the cakes completely cool down before you pipe in the custard cream filling.
9. Topped with slices of strawberries or cherries.

Open Tue - Fri, 12pm to 10pm, Sat - Sun, 11am - 10pm

Little Wonton Cafe was featured in 8tv Ho Chak program. It caught my attention when I heard about the noodles and different kind of wontons they have. Usually I had either fried wonton or wonton dumplings in soup when I have wonton noodles. Here in Little Wonton Cafe, they serve no ordinary fried wonton. 

Here, they have air fried wontons with different kind of fillings to choose from. So, afraid not of the oil since it is air fried. Guilt-free!

What's your roll? Visit this custom sushi restaurant to find it out. Thanks to my colleague for introducing this place. Guess I will visit again for more custom sushi rolls. 

Located at the row outside Publika, somewhere below The Red Beanbag. A very unique concept of sushi restaurant these days. 

Instructions stated clearly in the menu to ease customer in filling up the order chit. The minimum price will be RM13.90 for a small sushi roll. Small roll will have 3 normal fillings of your choice, which I think it is already sufficient. 

List of fillings, sauces, dressings and toppings to choose from. I took some time to analyse all of the list.
