Fried rice, fried fish and gum paste cut outs...

Nasi goreng Yang Zhou version zaitgha loosely adapted from the New Malaysian Cookbook. I was really running out of ideas what to cook for last night dinner though i had cooked the rice. I flipped this book and saw the recipe. I skipped some of the ingredients like carrot, peas, corn as i personally do not like them in fried rice and gotta skipped chicken as we just had chicken the day before. The fried rice was well received by my heroes and definitely with cut chili padi in light soy sauce........


Ini pulak my version of deep fried garoupa with chili sauce.



Cut outs gum paste flowers, I just love red and to get this striking red i used powder food coloring. If it was liquid food, i need a lot of liquid to get the same effect and the liquid would effect the consistencies of the gum paste dough.
