Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Claypot Yam Chicken

It has been quite a while I have not blogged as I have not been trying anything new. So this time I will put in this simple dish given by my friend Kem Fong.  It is quite easy to make and tasty too.

Claypot Yam Chicken

Some chicken pieces -  rub in a bit of salt. (1/3 of a chicken)
Yam - cut into pieces  (1/3 of a yam)
1 tsp of dried shrimps  - washed
2 stalks spring onions - wash and cut into 2 " length
3 clove garlic - diced
2 cubes red bean curd (lam yue) - mashed and add into a bowl of water
A bit of Shao Shing wine (optional)


1)    Heat up 2 tabsp of oil in the claypot and fry the yam pieces.  Dish out.
2)    Put in the garlic for while followed by the  chicken pieces.  Let chicken turn brown a bit in the claypot. 
3)    Add in the dried shrimps and stir together with the chicken for a few minutes.
       Put in the wine if you are using.
4)    Place the yam pieces on top of  the chicken and pour the red bean curd liquid into the claypot.  Cover
