New recipes on cooking

I have been sharing much baking recipes at my store since its opening in May 2009. So today, starts a new year for me. I would be sharing more cooking recipes.

Today, 2 recipes will be printed and distributed freely at our store at Kallang Bahru. So if you are in the area, drop by to get a copy. And of course, all the ingredients are readily available from our store. Except groceries, but no fear, NTUC Fairprice Supermarket is just above us.

My all time is the Salmon and Snow Pear Roll and the Ondeh ondeh.

A Chef who frequents our store gave me a fantastic recipe using our red bean paste to make finger snacks. He told me all I need was:

2 packets of Wanton skins
200g red bean paste(the ones we sold for mooncake making)
1 egg (lightly beaten)

1. Divide the bean paste into 20 portions.
2. Brush wanton skin lightly with egg wash, put a portion of the bean paste in the centre of the wanton skin.
3. Cover it with another piece of wanton sheet.
4. Press down with your thumb and seal it.
5. Brush the top with egg wash again.
6. Bake in preheated oven 180C for 10 mins or until the wanton looks golden brown and crisp.

He suggested that I could use other types of mooncake paste for variations. Thanks Chef James for your wonderful tip.

Sorry, I have no picture for that. But he said he did for Christmas just to try it out with his friends. It was a hit!

I used to make chocolate and banana wanton but deep-fried instead. I think I should try the baked version, it's a lot more healthier and hassle free. Thanks!
