CNY Day 2: Potluck with Friends


CNY Day 2: Deep Fried Pork Meat Balls
Nian Chu Er aka the second day of Chinese New Year, we had a fabulously delicious potluck dinner with friends at our place. I roughly thought about the menu in the afternoon and came to a conclusion that I should prepare dishes which I'm more familiar with - Deep Fried Pork Meat Balls and Hot & Sour Roasted Chicken Soup.

The ingredients I gathered for our first dish: ground pork, spring onion, water chestnut, and minced garlic. I made use of few simple seasonings like white pepper powder, sesame oil, dark soy sauce, light soy sauce, salt, and five-spice powder to create the aromatic flavors. Then mixed all the ingredients and seasonings together and set aside for a while.

It's a shame that I didn't take any photos of the soup that I boiled for almost an hour. Pickled mustard, sweetcorn, roasted chicken, dried chillies, and straw mushroom were such a great combination together.
