Thermomix Recipe : Chwee Kueh

Someone has been pestering me to make him Chwee Kueh. He has even bought the mould last year expecting this full time working wife and mother to feed him the food he wanted to eat. I have been very reluctant because Chwee Kueh is something that I am not fancy but I do not mind eating. Hahaha.. So, yesterday, when we were doing groceries shopping, it was very random. I took out my phone and started to find Thermomix Chwee Kueh Recipe. I got this from facebook. 

And so, we some of the ingredients that we thought we didn't have at home. 

Rice Flour 200g

Corn Flour 20g

Save one bowl to wash. So Corn Flour put together with Rice Flour . Haha.

Oil 20g but I used EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil)
1000g Water
another 1000g for Steaming later on. 

Here are the steps:-
Pour 1000g of Water into TM Bowl. 

and put everything above into TM bowl. 6 mins, 80 degrees, Speed 4.  

Prepare the mould by applying some cooking oil on them. 
TheHub only bought 10. So I need to do 2 rounds. 

80 degrees, Speed 4, counting down.

The outcome. 

Pour them into the mould. Time to go for shopping again. We need more moulds you know? Hahaha..

 25 minutes, Varoma, Speed 2

While waiting for the rice cake, I have about 20 minutes to prepare the condiments ingredients. 

55g Garlic . The weight shown is including bowl. Haha.. 

3 tbsp of Sugar. I use Organic Cane Sugar. 

It should be roughly 40-45g. 

2 tsp Corn Flour

20g EVOO.

150g Minced Preserved Radish. 

Getting ingredients ready, while waiting for rice cake to finish steam. 

Once it is ready, Garlics in. 5 seconds, Speed 5. 

Add in Cooking Oil, 

And Preserved Radish to saute. 4 minutes, Varoma, Spoon Speed

Next, add in 50g Water, 1 tsp Dark Soy Sauce, 
20g Corn Flour, 3 tbsp Sugar,
3 minutes, Varoma, Spoon Speed. 

If you prefer spicy, you can even add on chilies.
If you like dried shrimp, you also can add them in. 
I have forgotten to add on some mushroom to make them even tastier. (I guess)

The instructions say, let them cool down before flip them over. 

My end product. 

Would be better if I have some spring onions to put on top of them. 

Or probably some cut chilies.

My first time doing Chwee Kueh. theHub said these are pretty delicious. 
But.. to me, macam not the Chwee Kueh I had ages ago ler. Hahaha. 

The next day, which is this morning. I prepared the remaining nine. 
Those ingredients can make 19. TheHub had 9 last night. I had 1. So, these are the leftovers from The Supper, which became the breakfast this morning. Haha. 

Prepared myself a cup of Hot Milo while waiting for theHub and Baby to wake up. 

I prefer it this way. More condiments on top. So I flipped everything over and rearrange them. Hahaha. 

Alright. That's it for now. Have a great long weekend for those who are in Sarawak. 
Selamat Hari Gawai to those who are celebrating. Selamat Berpuasa to those who are fasting. 
Most important, have good days.

See you in June.

Thermomix : Soft Sweet Buns / Sausage Buns

Recently as soon as I have time, I will try to make use of the Thermomix at home. The scariest part of the Thermomix process is when the speed need to adjust till Speed 7 and above. Sometimes I will just adjust it and then i close the door until the German Maid finishes its works. Hahaha !! 

Anyways, I have experiment doing this Soft Sweet Buns recipes that I got from facebook.
No automatic alt text available.
Recipe by Gideon Lye in Thermomix Truly Asian page. She showed each and every step on how she did her buns. They all look amazing. 

Seeing is one thing. Doing it myself is another thing. I tried 4 times. 2 ok. 2 failed. But oklar.. for non cooking and baking background.. and of course with the help of my German Maid. Hahaha. 

Instead of doing exactly the same like in the menu, I cut everything into halves, except for the egg. Almost but not half. Haha. 

Ingredient A

Water 110g 

Sugar 30g 

Yeast 1tsp 

Salt 1tsp 

Ingredients B

High Protein Flour : 260g

Butter (chilled) : 30g

Egg (Size B) 

According to the recipe and methods to do it, put Ingredients A into the TM bowl.  

30 seconds, 37degree, Speed 2. 

Once done, pour Ingredients B into the TM bowl.

Again, 30 seconds, Speed 0-3-6. My second and third attempt failed when the proofing is somehow being bitchy. Hahaha.. So, on my forth attempt, I make the temperature 37degrees at this step. 

30 seconds easily passed. Next, 3 minutes Knead. 
I'm not sure if  my 2nd and 3rd attempt failed were due to the cooling room temperature because I did it at night. So, during the kneading process, I also added on the temperature to 37 degrees. Somehow during the kneading process, I have to be with this German Maid, else this siaochabo is going to throw temper at me. Hahaha.. it vibrates so hard that i need to hold it during that 3 minutes. Haha. 

According to Method 4, I need to let the dough rest for 45 minutes. I just left it in the TM bowl like everyone else. Afterall, need to wash the TM bowl and instead of washing another tool or two, it is a wiser idea to just let if proof inside the TM bowl. Haha. 

While waiting...

and finallyyyy....

Not soft enough. I don't know where went wrong but at least this 4th attempt is better than the 2nd and 3rd.. 1st attempt was better than this though. Hmm...
