Apple, Pomelo, And Scallops Salad


This is a light salad recipe. The apple, pamelo, and scallops gives this salad a delicious sweet, sour, and crunchy taste with a hint of spiciness from the Thai inspired dressing. This salad can be prepared ahead and chilled. Just before serving, cook the scallops, toss in the salad and drizzle some dressing over it. You are all set! :-)

  2. After reading your post, I am thinking of making Ipoh Pamelo salad. Too bad it's not the Pamelo season in Sydney.

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.
