Green Curry Chicken


I made some Green Curry Chicken today. Together with some warm steamed rice, it's just the right fix for the cooler weather here in Vancouver these days. I used an authentic ready-made green curry paste imported from Thailand by my Asian grocer in Chinatown. Yummy!

  1. Hmmm... Look so nice!
    Did you used eggplants?
    They are very similar to a solanacea from Brasil called jiló (Solanum gilo). They are bitter and green... I just luv jiló!

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
