Chinese New Year | Goodies season!

Chinese New Year | Goodies season!

It is the time of the year for some Chinese New Year Shopping!

Christmas is over and here comes Chinese New Year where we have all the Chinese New Year goodies to feast on! 

A must have for Chinese New Year! It is the only season where we are all especially in the mood for these tarts and they are available everywhere! Let me know if you have any good pineapple tarts to share. I love those with buttery crust! Yumm Yumm

I love the square minced pork and the bacon type. If you have not tried the bacon type, you got to try it. Yes, I admit it is VERY sinful, but it is so deliciously good!  Just eat in moderate and you will be fine :)  

Melt in your mouth goodness! It is melts in our mouth... and we can't stop popping another one!  Tried and Tested! This recipe from bakewithpaws is definitely delicious. If you have some spare time this Chinese New Year, try making them yourself.

Apart from all the new year goodies, one dish that we all looks forward to every year is the LO HEI!

Ever been in a situation where you are supposed to say the auspicious phrases during Lo Hei but you totally have no idea of it? Here is a guide to help you out. 

Here’s the simple step by step guide to make you look like a Lo Hei expert by 

1. In goes the raw fish (生鱼, Sheng Yu)

年年有馀 “Nian Nian You Yu” symbolising abundance ‘excess’ through the new year

2. Put in the pomelo (柚子, You Zi)

大吉大利 “Da Ji Da Li” which means good fortunes and luck.

3. Sprinkle pepper & cinnamon powder (胡椒粉, Hu Jiao Fen)

招财进宝 “Zhao Cai Jin Bao” to attract more wealth and treasures. This step is a must for business lo hei.

4. Drizzle the oil  (油, You)

You can either use “财原广进 “Cai Yuan Guang Jin” or 一本万利 “Yi Ben Wan Li” while circling the ingredients with the oil to increase all profits 10,000 times and encouraging money to flow in from all directions. Thrill your bosses with this step!

5. Throw in the carrots (红萝卜, Hong Luo Bo)

6. Put in the shredded green radish (青萝卜, Qing Luo Bo)

8. Dust finely chopped peanuts (花生粉, Hua Sheng Fen)
