碱水粽 ~ 周年快乐安迪漾 (Kee Zhang ~~ Happy 2nd Anniversary "Aunty Young" )






“安迪漾”
两年前,娜娜为了让我从郁闷的情绪里走出来,而帮我开的部落格。当时的我,除了一丁点的基本厨艺,电脑操作,拍照术烘焙,甜品,糕点。。。。。。。。。。我,一概白痴。

"AuntyYoung" is a blog that NaNak started for me 2 years ago.  Back then, I only had a little skill in cooking. I was  weak in computers, photography, baking and desserts.

安迪漾第一个作品,虽然厨艺不差,但是当时的装饰,拍照技术真的有待进步。
My first dish. Even though my cooking skills are fine, my decoration and photography skills still have room for improvement.


后来,我做了许多的初体验,
第一个戚风,第一卷蛋糕卷,第一个月饼,第一粒粽子。。。。。。
一次又一次的突破,超越。。。。。。

 As I tried out more and more new things, I began to grow and learn.

然后我默默地在心中认了师傅,封了偶像,
又踏踏实实交了许多无私分享的格友。
让我在烹饪,烘焙,摄影的旅程不但不孤独;
还在程度上日愈提升,越发精湛。

As the days passed, I met with the talented, made friends and shared recipes. Slowly, my skills developed and became better.

一年后,开始尝试各类不同的烘焙,拍照,摆设少许进步。
Baking attempts of a year later. My photography and decorative skills have improved alongside baking skills.

再后来又福气满满的拥有一群知音,
給于善意的批评;给于鼓励的赞赏。
偶尔信息我,照片,帖子被盗用了;为我声张,替我不值。 
都让我好感动! 

As time flies, I found a group of friends who gave me advice and suggestions on improvement. They encouraged me to do better. They even reported to me should they notice a copyright violation of my photos! Thank you all!

一年半后,信心增加,做有难度的尝试,拍摄也进步了。
A year and a half later, as my confidence grew, I begin to attempt more challenging things.

我感恩,因为受伤,我转移焦点,无心插柳,却柳成荫。
今天我从“安迪漾”里找到信心,热诚,展望,快乐和感恩。
 这2两年来,不管是师傅,偶像,格友或拥姜,
你们给我的,指导,正能量,关怀,呵护,
我都收到了,谢谢!
我想回报你们的,应该是再接再厉,
怀着你们的祝福,不断超越自我,!!

I feel grateful. This blog has grown, and with it grows my confidence, joy and happiness. During these 2 years, all those who have given me advice, suggestions, directions and kind words, thank you!
For all my readers, I will continue to work harder and do better. 


****************************************************************

虽然2岁了,我仍然不断的尝试第一次。
好比今天就是第一次裹碱水粽。
因为眼看端午近了,又是另一个佳节倍思亲的当儿。 
Despite being 2 years old, this blog continues to see new things. As of today, with the Dragon Boat Festival just around the corner, here is my first ever Kee Zhang.


2012 做了传统肉粽;2013也做了娘热肉粽
今天,2014我就来个碱水粽。

In 2012 I made the traditional Glutinous Rice Dumpling, 
 in 2013 I tried the Nyonya Zhang
And now, in 2014, I attempted this Kee Zhang.




碱水粽( Kee Zhang)
裹12粒粽(yeild 12 dumplings)
 
材料(Ingredients)
糯米500克...................500g glutinous rice
碱水1汤匙 ..................1tbsp lye
油2 汤匙oil ..................2 tbsp oil

裹材(materials)
粽叶12- 15片,洗净,滚水煮10分钟,沥干
12 - 15 bamboo leaves ,softened with boiling water 10 minutes,drained.
咸水草12 -15 ,条洗净,滚水煮10分钟,沥干待用
12 -15 hemp, softened with boiling water 10 minutes,drained.

做法(Method)
1。糯米洗净,浸水至少6小时
1.  Cleaned the glutinous rice,soaked for at least 6 hours. 
 
2。糯米沥干水分,加入碱水和油,搅拌均匀,置旁待用。
2.  Drained the glutinous rice, add in lye and oil,mix well,set aside.
 
3。将一片粽叶,叶尾互叠,,曲折成漏斗型,舀入适量糯米,覆下粽叶,按下两侧,屈好余下的叶端,用咸水草绕扎好打结。
3. Take one bamboo leaf,fold it into funnel shape,scoop in some glutinous rice,cover up with bamboo leaf and shape like dumpling,finally tight with a hemp.


碱水粽,单吃乏味,一旦沾上咖椰或椰糖酱汁,马上美味异常。
QQ的碱水粽,搭上香醇的咖椰,
这是安迪爸爸生前最喜爱的小吃之一。 

The Kee Zhang tastes mild, but when eaten with kaya or Gula Melaka, it becomes a delicious delicacy. The glutinous Kee Zhang combined with the sweet, aromatic kaya...... mmm! Delicious!


今天能够拥有“安迪漾”这个小贝比,
得谢谢你们一路来的扶持,鼓励。
当然不忘了,亲爱的娜娜,帮我开启这部落格,
还有亲爱的安哥,不论精神或经济上,无限量的资助,
 让我可以近距离和你们沟通,学习,成长。 

To my loyal readers, thank you! Thank you to NaNak and my hubby too, for helping and guiding me. Thank you all!

  2. Hi Aunty Young
    I am like you too....back then I am a lousy cook and I even had a hard time how to post to the blog too. But it is a good learning skills if we are determine. Well, as for presentation for a dish, I do look at cookbooks picture how the dish is presented. And for your today this kee zhang post, I dont think I be able to make this at all because I know I wont be able to wrap it nicely. Mmm.....i will just have to buy few at the markets .....

  19. Hi Aunty Young, Happy 2nd Anniversary. I'm planning to make Kee Chang this year using other recipes apart from my mom's very own family recipe. My family prefers Kiam Bak Chang. I'll do both. Prices of bamboo leaves, chestnuts, salted eggs and pork have gone up this time. I don't know how many I'm going to make this time.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Kim,
      Thank you.
      Although the prices is increased,but to please our family in that particular day ,we have no choice to make some "chang" too. Looking forward to see your sharing soon.
