Putu Mayam

This is my breakfast on Sunday Morning. It is known as Putu Mayam. It does not taste as nice as during my childhood time. I guess most are factory made now instead of homemade.

Putu mayam is a sweet dish of rice noodles with coconut and jaggery as main ingredients. It is popular in southern India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Singapore, as a snack or breakfast food.The process for making putu mayam (also known as string hoppers in English) consists of mixing rice flour or idiyappam flour with water and/or coconut milk, and pressing the dough through a sieve to make vermicelli-like noodles. These are steamed, usually with the addition of juice from the aromatic pandan leaf (screwpine) as flavouring. The noodles are served with grated coconut and jaggery, or, preferably, gur (date palm sugar). In some areas, gula melaka (coconut palm sugar) is the favourite sweetener.Source taken from wikipedia.

Claypot Rice and Dim Sum at Geylang East

Today I went for the claypot rice again. Even my eldest son said the claypot pot rice is yummy. I think it is at Block 119 Geylang East (next to the Geylang Polyclinic).

Claypot rice - S$10

Chee Cheong Fun-my favourite but it was not steaming hot. I prefer the dim sum to be very steamy hot.

Century egg cognee

Fried dumplings with mayonnaise sauce. There was supposed to be another dish that I forgot to take photo with my mobile phone cause the last dish was late in coming. Was kind of spring roll wrapped in beancurd skin.
