Steamed Tapioca Cake
recipe adapted from Malaysian Cakes and Desserts by Rohani Jelani
makes 1 tray (7x7 inch tray) (i use half of the recipe)

1 kg Tapioca (preferable the yellow type); peeled and grated
220g Sugar
50ml cream (i added)
1 egg, beaten (optional; i omit)
400ml thick coconut milk

To Do: 
1. Peeled and grated the tapioca. Finely grated the tapioca, try to avoid the hard part in the middle of the tuber. After grated, the grated tapioca may weight only 800 gm.
2. To get rid of the bitter juices. Use a muslin cloth to squeeze out or press in a sieve, collecting the juice in a small bowl and keep aside. Let the it sit for 5-10 minutes
 (refer to Pic 1) Carefully pour away the juice and collect the tapioca starch.
3. Add the collected starch and sugar into the grated tapioca and mixed well.
4. Add in coconut milk, cream  and mixed well. 
5. Pour mixture into the prepared steam tray. Leveled the surface with the back of a spoon.
6. Steam with high heat for 30 minutes or until it is cooked.
7. Cut when it is completely cold and serve!

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
