Chinese New Year Celebration Feast

Chinese New Year
Mama Ng's Menu

Lucky Soup - Pork, bean sheet, black eye peas, dried oysters and fat choi ( moss )
not sure where it comes from but its supposed to be lucky.

Braised Mushroom and Oyster

Quick Stir fry Snow peas with Bean noodles.

Poached Chicken served with Oyster Sauce and Hot Mustard

Poached Salted Pork Belly

Steamed Talapia with Ginger, Scallion and Soy Sauce

there is more.......

Annie and I made a Savory Tong Yuen Soup.

Ingredient A - Daikon - Roast Pork (Char Siu) - Chinese wine pork sausage (Lap Churn )- Scallion/Cilantro including stems
all chopped to bite size

Glutinous Rice Flour 2lbs

1. Put flour into bowl and when adding water make sure you make a well in the center,that way the flour does not puff out of the bowl. Work the flour with small amount of water , knead until right texture.
2. Roll into rolls and divide them into individual pieces. Start rolling into balls
( Annie is a professional! rolling 2 at once...i tried but no luck off)
4. Put the balls into a pot of simmering water, they will float once done, then transfer into another pot of room temperature water.

* Mama Ng had made the stock the night before with chicken and pork bones*

Add Ingredients A except for the Roast Pork / Small portion of the scallion/cilantro into the stock and bring to boil let simmer for 20 minutes then add the rice balls, simmer for another 20 minutes.

Serve into bowl, add the freshly chopped scallion/cilantro and Roast Pork.
Soy sauce and white pepper on the side for dipping, you can also added some into the soup directly.

It was almost perfect .....
we forgot 2 most important ingredients, Shitake Mushroom and Celery Leaves!
which gives the broth it's deep flavors.

So here we shared our celebration for the Year 2010 with this wonderful feast.
Posted a bit late but hey......Gong Hay Fat Choi everyone!

I am the tong yuen rolling master! Three at a time! Too bad my hands are super small (Adam, my ring size is 5.5) or I would've rolled out 500 in record breaking time!
Dinner was delicious! I wish it was CNY everyday...
