Quick and Delicious

I believe many of those living in Malaysia would be very familiar with 'Chicken' Biscuits, or know as 'Ji Zai Bing' (Mandarin) or 'Gai Zai Beng'(Cantonese). When I was young I loved these biscuits. Nowadays when I go to Malaysia I would also buy some back. Of course, they are also available in locally. But somehow the taste seems to have changed, and I still prefer the taste last time (feeling a bit nostalgic here).

When I saw this recipe posted by a member of KC, I jumped at the chance of making my own Gai Zai Beng. These turned out to be lovely, and the taste is as good, if not better, than store-bought ones. The best thing is, it doesn't require the use of lard. It's also very easy to make. So my friends, take a bite.

For lunch today, I used Zu's recipe to make some 'fried' wings. These are actually baked in the oven. Extremely tasty and easy to do. The crispyness is comparable, I should say better, than deep-fried wings. Of course, most importantly, it's a healthier alternative.

Evan, yes, these biscuits also have 'Nan Ru' - red fermented beancurd. I think this is what gives Gai Zai Beng the distinctive taste.

The chic wings are very addictive. One tip from Gina of KC, add 100g of rice flour to the flour mixture for coating, it makes them very crispy.

I love Gai Zai Peng too, really is it easy to make, will go to KC and take a look at the recipe.

Yeah I have tried the oven baked wings as well, not bad in comparison, but my hubby still prefer the deep-fried version. MAN!

Angie said...

Ching, yup, take a look. It's easy to make. I only used two bowls, 1 fork, and the rolling pin ;p

Oh ya, man! My hubby also likes anything deep fried, sigh...
