Peanut Powder - 花生粉

In Singapore this ready-made Peanut Powder can be easily found in major supermarkets at their flour and baking sections. But whereas in certain countries you might have to make your own peanut powder in order to use it for baking, cooking or serving as extra toppings in dishes, beverage or etc.

During your visit to there supermarkets you might find a few different brands of peanut powder available for your selection. Here I have two different brands of peanut powder which contain either with or without sugar added which might comes in handy depending on how you would want to use it for.

This SingLong brand Peanut Powder is one of those that I always have stock in my fridge so that I could make our favourite Muah Chee or Oneh Oneh anytime of the day. But if you are using the same peanut powder for both sweet and savoury dish(kueh paiti, pad Thai noodles) perhaps you can consider the other one below which is just 100% Peanut Powder without any sugar added.

100% Peanut Powder which is great and healthier because you can to control the amount sweet to mix with the powder for sweet treat.


HOW TO MAKE PEANUT POWDER


Below is a simple recipe on how to make your own Peanut Powder if you could not find it in your local supermarkets.

(Make: about 200g | Preparation: 3 minutes | Cooking: 10 - 15 minutes)

Ingredients:
200g Raw Peanuts, with skins on
1 Teaspoon of oil, optional

Method:-
1. Rub very little amount of oil to peanuts and roast them in a non-stick pan over medium low heat or in the preheated oven at 180° until light brown and aromatic.

2. Remove, place roasted peanuts on clean kitchen towel and rub them between the towel using your palms to remove the outer skins.

3. Next using either a pestle or food processor, grind the roasted peanuts into coarse or fine powder according to the recipe requirements.

Tip:-
~ Unused peanut powder can be stored in air-tight container, kept in fridge for a month or two.

    1. Hi Princess Patricia, it is peanut oil produced in the process of grinding. Allow me to suggest a solution. Use the pulse function to grind in short bursts. Let us know if it works.

Kueh Tutu (嘟嘟糕) And Kueh Tutu Mould

Kueh Tutu also known as "嘟嘟糕" in Mandarin is a traditional Singaporean delicacy which is made using rice flour. These steamed rice cakes are made using a special kueh tutu mould (refer to the photo shown below) where the prepared rice flour together with filling is steamed for a minute or two before removing it and place on a piece of pandan leave and served.

How To Shred And Grate Orange Rind

There mainly two major varieties of oranges such as Navels and Valencias. Navels are available from November through May, with peak supplies in January all the way to March. These oranges are big and easily spotted with the button formation opposite the stem end while compare to Valencia oranges that are small to medium sized.

If you like oranges I am sure you are aware of the Sunkist, Navels orange promotion that is available in most local supermarket where you can get big, juicy and sweet oranges at around S$3.25 for 5.

Sometime in certain recipes you might come across these words/phases appear beside the citrus fruits such as “rind of 1 lemon”, “grated rind”, “shred lemon/orange peel” or etc. And I have received a few comments asking on how to get grated rind and shreds peel so I think perhaps this little note might do some help. For those who is new in the kitchen, freshly grated zest is the coloured part of citrus fruit peel which adds extra fragrant and tangy taste to butter…

Yacon - 冰山雪莲果

Yacon(冰山雪莲果) is a sweet and crunchy vegetable that has a flavour similar to an apple. The actual vegetable is called a "tuber" which is a thick stem or root that grows underground which similar to a potato. Yacon grows in a variety of different colors including pink, orange, white or purple. In the United States, Yacon that is sold in markets is typically white compared to the orange type that we have in Singapore.(if you seen any purple colour Yacon do share a photo of it with me as I am curious on how it looks like)

According to some google read-up this vegetable is very high in fiber and low in calories which makes it a healthy and nutritious snack. Furthermore Yacon has also been known to improve digestion by promoting the growth of bacteria beneficial to human health in the intestine too.(more information HERE)

I have used this Yacon to make two different type of soup such as "Yacon And Lotus Roots Peanut Soup" and Yacon with Sweetcorn Pork Ribs Soup. Both thes…
