  • 1.5cups water
  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 6 cloves garlic

3. Add in pork belly with skin face down and let it pan fried for 3 mins.
4. Add in FHG light soy sauce, dark sauce, water and mix well.
5. Add in the coriander leaf and let it boil. Once boil, lower down the fire and let it simmer cook for 45mins.
6. After 45 mins, I cook out the pork belly and slice it to 10 pcs (slice as per u preferred)
7. Put the sliced pork belly back to the pot of sauce and simmer cook for another 10 mins. It's ready to serve with steamed buns! Enjoy

1. I used Feng He Garden sauce, it belong to thicker and sweeter taste so I didn't add any sugar to the gravy. Please adjust accordingly if u are using other brands

Recipe by TAGlicious

  • 260g yam
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 60g tapioca starch
  1. Remove the skin of the yam.
  2. Cut the yam into small pieces and steamed it for 30mins under high fire.
  3. Mashed it finely when it is still hot.
  4. Add in the sesame oil and salt and mix well.
  5. While the mashed yam mixture is still hot/warm. Add in the tapioca flour gradually (depend on the yam water content) and form a soft smooth dough.
  6. Roll them into small balls and press it using your fingers like a mini coins.
  7. Boil a pot of water and cook them. When the abacus seeds float on the water, scoop it out and put them into a pot of cold water.
  8. Set aside to stir fry later.
  • For stir fry, you can add any personal preferred ingredients.
  • For me, I love to have it with soaked dried mushrooms & black fungus, minced pork, prawns, dried shrimps, spring onions, minced garlic & seasoned it with oyster sauce and pepper.
