Wet Wednesdays: Butter Chicken Sauce (Butter Masala)

When I think of Indian comfort food, I think Butter Chicken. It’s aromatic, savoury and deliciously creamy. I found making a big batch of the sauce comes in handy, especially when you’re just craving a quick butter chicken dish. This can pretty much be stored in an airtight container in the freezer for 1-2 months without going bad.

I used 250mL mason jars to store them, this is equivalent to about a cup of sauce – perfect for an individual serving.

Foodie Fridays: Har Gow Inspired Wontons

Stuck indoors on a rainy afternoon? Why not make your own wontons/shrimp dumplings! They’re fun and easy to make.

Wontons are typically made with a mix of shrimp and pork. Har gows are standard Dim Sum fare, which consist of shrimp and bamboo shoots. These wontons take the filling from har gows and puts them into Wonton form.

This recipe yields approximately 120 wontons. These can stay stored in an airtight container in the freezer for about 2-3 months.

Wonton wrappers can typically be found in the produce aisle(s) of your local grocers, and bamboo shoots in the ethnic food aisle.
