Orange Jelly 香橙冻

A light and soft jelly to enjoy it cool on a hot day :)

Yield: 4 x 200ml pudding bottles

500ml water
40g raw sugar
3/4 tsp agar agar powder
1 pandan leaf
1 orange


1. Wash an orange with veggie wash as we will be using the orange peel.

2. Peel about a 15cm long stripe and a 5 cm long stripe of orange peel using a fruit peeler. Cut the 5cm orange peel into thin stripes and place in the jelly cups.

3. Remove the orange skin cleanly and cut the orange into wedges then into bite size. Keep in the fridge to preserve the Vitamin C.

4. Heat 400ml of water in a pot with pandan leaf and 15 cm long orange peel. Keep the remaining 100ml of water to mix with the agar agar powder later.

Heat the pandan leave and the orange peel
in the pot of water.

5. Mix agar agar powder with the raw sugar. Pour the 100ml of water to the sugar-jelly mixture. Blend well and set aside for 5 minutes.

6. When 5 minute is up, pour the agar agar mixture into the pot. Stir constantly to mix well and to avoid the jelly from sticky to the base of the pot.

7. When all the agar agar granules have dissolved, you may stop heating. Let the agar agar mixture cool down for about 10 minutes before pouring into the cups.
Do not over boil the mixture.

Take a small amount of the mixture and let it cool down. If it coagulates, then the mixture is ready.

8. Pour the agar agar mixture into four clean containers and let them cool for about 10 minutes. Add the chill orange bits in. When the jellies cool to room temperature, cover the containers and chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

Enjoy :)

HappyCall 炒甜酱萝卜糕 pan-fried carrot cake

1 pack carrot cake, 500g
3~4 cloves, garlic, chopped

2~3 eggs
2 tsp low salt fish sauce/light soya sauce
1 tsp sambal  (optional)
3~5 tbsp sweet soya sauce
2 tbsp spring onion

Carrot cake block 

Sweet soya sauce

1. Wash the preserved radish at least twice to reduce saltiness. Squeeze dry it and set aside.
If you're using sweet preserved radish, you can skip this step.

2. Cut the carrot cake into long stripes.

3. Heat the HappyCall pan to medium high temperature. Beat the eggs with 1/2 tsp of low salt fish sauce and pour into the pan.  Stir the omelette when the bottom starts to solidify, into small pieces. Let them pan-fry to a slight golden, and scoop out of the pan. Set aside.

4. Heat the HappyCall pan to medium high temperature. Add about 2 tbsp of olive oil, followed by chopped garlic and preserved radish bits, stir-fried till fragrant.
While waiting for the garlic to turn golden, keep the sweet radish at the side, so it won't be burnt easily.

5. Add in the carrot cake stripes and let them stir fried for about 2 minutes, and close the lid for about 2 minutes. 

When the carrot cake begins to soften, add about 2 tsp of fish sauce/light soya sauce, and 2 tsp of water. Stir to mix, close the lid again, and let the steam soften the carrot cake further.

Finally, add in the sweet soya sauce and sambal chilli. Adjust according to your taste.

6. Pour in the omellete from (3) and mix well with the carrot cake.  You may want to add about 1 tbsp of sweet soya sauce to coat the omelette.
