My Son's 10th Birthday

We had a busy day yesterday celebrating my son's birthday for him. I am just sharing some pictures of the food we had for the party. Not all are made/cooked by me though. I think I did not take a picture of the mango pudding I made and also a beefstew made by a good friend.

The birthday cake I baked for my son.

Chee Cheong Fun Sushi

To make this CCF sushi, what you will need is a few rolls of CCF bought from the wet market. Some Japanese cucumber cut into strips, some carrots cut into strips, some crab sticks, some Japanese mayo, some porkfloss, a few sheets of seaweeds.

Unrolled a roll of CCF on a sushi mat. Place a sheet of seaweed onto the CCF. Put in cucumber, carrot, crabstick on the seaweed. Squeeze some mayo over the fillings. Lastly top it off with some porkfloss. Wrap the CCF sushi as you would to a normal sushi. Cut and serve. It taste very good when eaten cold.

Hi Hugbear! Happy birthday to your son! I bet he felt really special, with all the yummy food! Do you mind me asking if Wu Kok is the same thing as taro puffs? I recently made taro puffs and it was not successful (I'll post later in my blog after I upload the pictures). Mine were so stuff and did not have the woven , beehive texture that yours does. Would you mind sharing your recipe? Also, do you mind me linking my blog to yours?
Thanks

Love your blog LeeLee. Can you share how you make your chee cheong fun sushi? Looks very delish!! Tks _K

Hugbear said...

Diddy, sure go ahead, I do not mind at all. For the taro puff, actually when I first made it and fried it I realised that it did not have the crispy exterior I want. After frying a few rounds, I came to realised that you have to leave the taro puff or wu kok aside for a while after wrapping. Do not fry immediately. Those that was fried immediately after wrapping didn't hv the crispy effect but those that I have left aside for a while does. Also the amount of shortening is important too to get that type of effect.

I will post the recipe later.

Hugbear said...

Hi Anonymous, the ccf sushi is very easy. No recipe need. I will explain in my blog how you do the sushi.

Amrita said...

wowwww! u must post recipes!!:D

diddy said...

thanks so much hugbear! I posted my results from my taro puffs on my blog. Maybe you can troubleshoot it from the pics that I took? It is so dissapointing when you do not get the correct results! I'm looking forward to trying your version!

diddy said...

Oh, and another question (sorry for filling up your comment box!) did you use the baby taro roots that are only a few cm long? or the big ones? I'm not sure if it will make a difference in the crispiness department but I'm wondering...

BoZo said...

Wow! Lee Lee looking at the wide spread of delicious food, I'm sure Jaren had a wonderful birthday that day! Happy Birthday Jaren!

Hugbear said...

Homemaker, pls go ahead. Do you mind giving me your blog too? Thanks.

Hugbear said...

Homemaker, wu kok is in cantonese. It is actually taro puff (yam puff) like those you eat in timsum restaurant.

Hugbear said...

hi lwf, it is time you get yourself a bigger oven and start all your yummy baking hor. LOL

homemaker said...

homemaker said...

so it is taro puff. It looks so crispy and tasty!!! How did you make the crispy outer layer?

Anonymous said...

Hi, chance upon ur site. do u mind posting the kong bak recipe as well? all looks so yummy!

Hugbear said...

Homemaker, frankly I also dunno. At frist when I fried it, the outside is not like that. Very flat, no texture at all. Then I added a bit more shortening and wheat flour and knead further. Then after wrapping, I left the wu kok aside for abt 15 mins before I fried them and suddenly I get the correct texture that I want. LOL

Hugbear said...

Hi Cannes, sorry the kong bak was cooked by my aunty not me so I don't have the recipe to share. Let me see if I can get my aunty to share the recipe with me. But based on my understanding of my relatives, all their cooking is by estimation, no actual measurements. LOL
