  2. Chicken Dumplings Recipe: A Healthy Dim Sum Treat

    Chicken Dumplings Recipe: A Healthy Dim Sum Treat
    Think about the best chicken dumplings that you've tasted, but this time - with a crunchier, healthier, juicy and sweet wrap! Hmm, but is Dimsum healthy in the first place? Good news, it can be depending on the ingredients and mode of preparation! For our friends who are practising the keto diet, this recipe would be perfect for you. Because forget flour wrappers, this Chicken and Cabbage dim sum takes it up a notch by replacing them with the mighty cabbage instead. Alternatively, you can always go dough-free! Stinge on your salt and use natural flavouring such as anchovies. Anchovies release a rich, umami flavour that can add a layer of complexity when emulsified in a sauce or soup. With cabbage acting as a natural sugar substitute, this dim sum is a balance of sweet and salty. Besides, there are so many natural substitutes - both cooking and baking substitutes that could make their way into your dish. If you're already getting hungry, let's dive right in. Try this recipe, because we're sure it will definitely make it to your list of favourite dim sum treats. This recipe used the Kenwood Multipro Compact.

  6. Entertaining At Home? Try These 5 Party Chip Dips

    Entertaining At Home? Try These 5 Party Chip Dips
    Tortilla, pita, potato chips, or even papadoms - it’s fair to say that these delicious carb-filled slices are usually made tastier when paired with their flavour-filled dip counterparts. A frequent centrepiece at parties and weekend movie nights, the right dip is quite important! Cheesy, crunchy, spicy or tangy, it’s really up to you. The only thing you need is the right chip, a strong food processor, and an appetite for yummy treats. Here are 5 fuss-free party chip dips that you can whip up in no time!

    Avocado Dip

    “Hold up,” you say, “isn’t this just Guacamole?” Well, close enough! This dip is a smoother, tangier version of the classic dip, and its refreshing flavour cuts through the saltiness of your chip. With only four main ingredients, a quick blitz in your food processor, this dip is easy breezy lime squeezy. Ingredients: 2 large avocados, halved and pitted ½ cup lightly packed fresh cilantro (some stems are okay) ⅓ cup lime juice (from about 2 ½ limes) 1 small jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed, roughly chopped 2 tablespoons water, more as needed to thin ½ teaspoon fine sea salt Method:
    1. Using a spoon, scoop the flesh of the avocados into a food processor or blender. Add the cilantro, lime juice, jalapeño, water, and salt.
    2. Process, stopping to scrape down the sides as necessary, until the sauce is smooth and creamy. (If the mixture refuses to blend, add additional water in 1-tablespoon increments, as necessary.)
    3. If you would like a thinner, more drizzly sauce, add water in 1-tablespoon increments until it reaches your desired consistency. Taste, and add more salt if it’s not quite flavorful enough.
    4. Transfer the avocado sauce to a small serving bowl. This sauce keeps well in the refrigerator, covered, for about 4 days.

    Dessert Dip

    Who said dips had to be savoury? Your house, your rules! How does a s'mores dip sound? Absolutely heavenly? We think so too. Choc

  8. Kuih Layang Layang or Kerepek Layang: Your New Favourite Snack!

    Kuih Layang Layang or Kerepek Layang: Your New Favourite Snack!
    It's not easy to find kerepek layang layang anymore, but today we have a time-tested recipe for this sweet snack. What does it taste like? First, it has crispy layers that are coated with icing sugar, so it's like eating a very small sugar-coated biscuit. Each piece is bite-sized, so before you know it - you could finish the entire bottle (trust us, we tried!). It's extremely easy to make because it's essentially just spring roll skin - which you can find everywhere - and icing sugar. Take care to use icing sugar and not any other type of sugar, otherwise the snack won't have the same mouthfeel. The water and the cornstarch will come together to form a glue. Mix it first and if it's not sticky, add more cornstarch.

  10. How To Use Your Stand Mixer’s Tools Right: The Dough Hook

    How To Use Your Stand Mixer’s Tools Right: The Dough Hook
    The dough hook attachment is used mainly for kneading bread dough. The hook picks up the dough and twists it around, ensuring elasticity and consistency. Using the mixer to make bread frees up time for you to do other things. Just remember to use the paddle attachment first to mix up the bread ingredients, before switching to the dough hook. A good dough hook never tears the dough up, pushes all ingredients down the bowl for efficient mixing, and helps you knead heavy dough amounts like a dream. Forget tasteless frozen pizza bases! Here’s an easy pizza dough recipe that you can create with the dough hook.
