Hello !!!!!!!

Work has kept me busy and away from blogging for sometime. Hope you are all looking forward to my latest recipe.Today i will be sharing a very popular dessert from HongKong. This yummy dessert is so light and refreshing  that it will leave you craving for more.This dessert is actually a thin pillow shaped crepe stuffed with whipping cream and mango chunks.It tastes absolutely divine and is so easy to to make it at home.My boys went gaga over this dish.I just loved the elastic and moist pancake with mango chunks.

Recipe for Stuffed Mango Pancake:

Ingredients:

(1Cup =240 ML)

1 Cup Fresh Milk

1/3 Cup Unbleached All purpose Flour

3 Eggs lightly beaten

1/4 Cup Custard Powder (Plain)

10 Gms melted Butter

For Stuffing :

1/4 Tsp Vanilla Extract

1/2 Tbsp Icing Sugar

300 ML Whipping Cream

3 Mangoes peeled and cut into chunks

Method:

Take a mixing bowl. Pour the milk in the bowl. Now sift the flour ,icing sugar and custard powder into the bowl.Whisk all the ingredients untill it is lump free and well combined.Add the lightly beaten eggs and melted butter to the mixture. Mix well. Now sieve this mixture in order to remove the lumps if any. Custard powder gives a nice yellow colour to the pancake.

Heat  a non stick pan over low heat. Pour  mixture using a ladle and swirl it to form a thin disc (just like  you make dosa). Once the air pockets appear on the top remove the pancake and allow it to cool .It is to be cooked only on one side.Repeat this procedure for the balance mixture.

In the meantime whip the cream and whipping cream till you get stiff peaks. I have added a tsp of icing sugar to this mixture.

Now lay the pancake on a flat surface .Smooth side will be facing down. Add a tsp of whipped cream in the centre of the pancake.Place a mango chunk on the top.Wrap the filling from all the four sides to shape like a pillow. Place the folded side facing down and chill these pancakes for about 30 minutes before you serve . This will keep the whipped cream stiff.  My boys could not wait so i had to serve it immediately.

Omurice is a popular Japanese food that was originally influenced by Western cuisine. Prepare fried rice and a thin omelette separately, then cover the fried rice in the omelette before serving.I liked this recipe as you can incorporate lot of vegetables into your kid’s diet. It is yummy and they will surely love it.

I made Omurice on my younger son’s demand. He had watched a video of this recipe and wanted me to make it for him. I have made this dish to suit the taste of my family.

You can make a lot of variations to this recipe. Kids will love it and it is so easy to cook. Serve for lunch or dinner.

Recipe  for Omurice / Omelette Rice:

Ingredients:

1 Cup =180 ML

½ Cup of  green bell pepper cut into small pcs

½ Cup yellow bell pepper cut into small pcs

½ Cup red bell pepper cut into small pcs

1/2 Cup French Beans chopped

¼ cup chopped carrot

5 white mushrooms cut into medium chunks

3/4 cup chopped onion

1 garlic clove crushed

2 Cubes of Cheese

1 green chilli  chopped

1 Tbsp butter

Salt to Taste

½ Tsp ground black pepper

1 cup cooked rice

2 Tbsp Tomato ketchup

2 eggs

¼ Tsp sugar

1 Tsp Oil

Finely Chopped Coriander or Mint to garnish

 

Method:

 

Heat a heavy Bottom Pan. Add butter and garlic and saute for few seconds. Once the garlic turns crisp, add the green chilli,green bell pepper,yellow bell pepper, red bell pepper, carrot, mushroom, and onion. Stir a few minutes until the onion turns a little translucent. Once done add salt and ground black pepper and mix well. Now add the cooked rice, tomato ketchup, and mix well. Let it cook without stirring for a minute, so that the bottom of the rice gets a little crunchy. Remove from the heat.

Transfer the fried rice to a bowl. Fill about half the cup with the fried rice, then if place the cheese cubes and then fill the rest of the bowl with the balance fried rice.

Keep it aside.

Now let us make the omelette.

Beat 2 eggs in a bowl with salt,pepper powder and sugar.Heat up a non-stick pan. Add  oil and spread the oil .Ensure the pan is properly greased .Turn the heat to medium low, so that the egg is not burnt.Pour the egg mixture into the pan and swirl the pan around to make a nice circle. Keep moving  the pan around and let the low heat cook the egg.Once done switch off the flame.

 To Assemble:

Put a large plate over the bowl of stir-fried rice. Flip everything over and remove the bowl in order to have a perfect dome of fried rice.Place the omelette over top of the dome. Garnish with a cheese cube , sprinkle some pepper or garnish with a bit of ketchup or as you like, and serve hot.

I served Omurice with pan fried Baby corns.
