Planned to make some CNY goodies. Lots of plans, but usually little time. Here's what I did last week:
Fried crabstick crisps
This was surprising good and addictive and it is such a no-brainer to prepare. Just shred the crabsticks and fry them in oil.
I make these every year. My hubby's favourite. It is quite a nice snack, can't stop at two. But it is back straining exercise making the rolls by hand. I'll use frozen popiah (springroll) skins, cut them in four quarters, and wrap porkfloss in them. Then deep-fry. Pardon the non-uniform shape of each roll, after all these years, still have not mastered the technique of making them all look the same. Despite the appearance, these were quickly snapped up, and my hubby offered to buy more porkfloss (hint hint).
Also quite a easy item to make. Just deepfry the popiah skin and sprinkle sugar over them.
Bubbles and Buttercup did volunteer their help with the making of the sugared crisps, here's Buttercup hard at work: It was a fun bonding time for the 3 of us that afternoon :)
