Rice Flour Dumplings on a bed of Macerated Red Berries

Posted on

The dumplings are made from glutinous rice flour, salt, baking powder, boiling water and stevia. The dough was divided in thirds and one part was mixed with matcha powder while another part was mixed with cocoa powder. The dough was rolled into strands, braided, looped back and rolled some more before being cut and rolled into balls which were boiled.

The dumplings are set on a bed of macerated raspberry and strawberry sweetened with agave syrup and stevia.

Steamed Matcha Rice Dumplings

To make these little sweets, I mixed glutinous rice flour with baking powder and a pinch of salt. I then added hot water and stevia and kneaded the dough a little before dividing it and adding matcha powder to half of it. Meanwhile, I heated some water in a large pan and lightly greased a muffin tin. I rolled the dough into small balls and put them in the muffin tin, then set the tin over the boiling water and steamed it for 20 minutes.

After reading that lemon is a good accompaniment to matcha, I made a glaze of lemon juice and sugar. These small chewy steamed dumplings were a nice treat.

I made this mildly sweet porridge using agave syrup in place of honey to make it vegan.

Hwajeon

This was my first attempt at Hwajeon, a pan-fried rice cake in syrup.

Normally they are decorated with the leaves of a daisy and the flower is made from jujube. I only had dried jujube, so I soaked it in water, but I also made half of the cakes using softer medjool dates.

I didn’t have daisy leaves, so I used mint and dill leaves. I was afraid they would impart too much flavour – especially the dill – but it turned out okay. The cakes are thicker than they ought to be, and I clearly need a more delicate touch with my floral design, but I still think they’re pretty.

To accompany it I made a sauce of peanuts, coconut, olive oil, red pepper flakes, soy sauce, garlic, lime, lemon juice, maple sugar, salt and shallot.

Rice with Tomato

Posted on

I made rice with tomato for lunch (not tomato rice, which has a much stronger flavour). It was nice with leftover okra curry and also just with yoghurt. It contains onion, cumin seeds, bay leaf, cassia, salt, tomato, rice, oil and coriander leaves.
