"Air Fried Meatball 炸肉丸“

我很喜欢用这air fryer 煎或炸食物。只要煎炸出来的食物好吃,虽然没油炸的好吃,但是我因为很讨厌油腻的食物,也很讨厌煎炸后油腻的地上,所以我还是喜欢用它。以上的肉丸可直接吃, 或和红萝卜与马铃薯(也是用air fryer炸过) 一起焖煮,煮成焖肉

200g 碎肉
50g 碎虾

1。 将所有材料搅拌均匀,揉成~9-10粒小球。
2。 在每粒小球外层涂上薄薄的一层油,然后放入air fryer 以200度炸
         大概15 分钟或炸至小球外层变成黄金色即可。

注: 如没air fryer ,就用普通油炸至黄金色即可。
I like to use air fryer to fry any food as long as the result are good even though not as good as deep fry using oil directly. The main reason is I hate oily food and the second reason is my kitchen floor do not need to be mopped after frying those food. I'm satisfied with this fried meatball as it is not oilly. It can be eat directly or cook with carrot and potato( also fried using air fryer) to made stew meatball( my hubby called it Bak steak).

200g minced meat
50g minced prawn
salt,MSG and pepper for favoring
2tbsp bread crumb

1.  Mix all the ingredients together until even, then roll the meat batter into
     ~9-10 small ball.
2.  Lightly brush each meatball with oil and air fried them in the air fryer for
     15 minutes in 200 degree celcius or until the meatball turn into golden
      colour. It is ready to serve.

Note: In case no air fryer available, just deep fry the meatball in the oil until it
          turn into golden colour.

Same as fried wantan, it does not have a lot of bubble on the surface of the dumpling skin(popiah skin). Although it is still very crispy as the dumpling skin are very thin compare to wantan skin, but my hubby( a person who like fried food) does not satified with it. However, I'm still satisfied with it because I don't like oilly food. This way of frying suit me.

循语今年六岁。K2 幼稚圆,明年就上小学了。为了让她在幼稚圆个美好回忆,特地为她做了个蛋糕让她在学校庆祝。此翻糖蛋糕瞒花时间完成。我先在她生日前个周末做好所有的公仔待用。第一次做翻糖蛋糕,抱着玩玩的心态,打算如果做不成,就做个巧克力蛋糕当后备。想不到成果还想当满意。

Shey-Nell turning 6 years old now. She is study at K2 kindergarden and going to enter primary school next year. I'm trying to make her have a memorable birthday during her kindergarden. Therefore, I decided to make her a special cake to celebrate at school. This fondant cake spent me quite some times to complete it. I prepare the Nagry bird doll a weekend earlier before the the cake making day. This is my first time playing with fondant cake. My backup plan is to make a chocolate cake for her in case I failed. Who know the result still satifying.

       double boiling  water until it is fully disolved in the water.

      it till the dough does not stick to the hand.
