Today's theme: Something simple and something traditional. In other words, I made Steamed Mantou
Teochew Orr Nee (Steamed Yam Paste with Candied Winter Melon & Gingko Nuts) today.
Just a little too sweet with the addition of the very sweet candied winter melon. Otherwise, taste will be just fine. I was also overly generous with the gingko nuts. Also, texture is a little too rough but then this works in providing more 'bite' to the paste.
By looking at it, you would not have guessed that they are Pandan Mantou. I probably didn't use enough pandan water, the taste was there but not obvious. And if you wonder about the 'odd-shape' in the middle, it came from some leftover bits that I rolled into a rope and twirled around. Not too off-putting, I hope.
