Kampar Chicken Biscuits / Kai Chai Peng

Kampar chicken Biscuit ( kai chai peng)

This biscuit is a very famous snack from Kampar, state of Perak. One who visited the northern part of Malaysia will always bring this as a gift for friends and relatives.

The unique is there is no trace of chicken in this little biscuit....Had no idea where the name came
They are deliciously sweet , savoury and a very distinct fragrance....I love it....

There's two type of chicken biscuits, thick soft doughy type and thin with crunchy texture..and I prefer crunchy thin type..the thinner the best....Once you start munching it, you'll hardly stop, very addictive..lols.
Here's the recipe:
120 gm cooking oil
1/4 salt
110 gm caster sugar
1 tbsp maltose
2 pcs nam yee
1 egg

150 gm candied winter melon strips( finely minced)
40 gm garlic ( finely minced)
60 gm white sesame seeds
1/2 tsp five spice powder
1/2 tsp pepper
11/2 tsp sesame oil

330 gm plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ammonia

Mix ingredients (A) and keep aside.
Combine ingredients (B) & (C) in a mixer.

Cornflakes Cups

This is Agnes Chang's recipe which she posted in Yum Yum magazine. Originally named Chinese New Year Cornflakes Cup, but I made this last week, and not Chinese New Year, and I changed the name....:D
When I saw it for the first time,I found it interesting, cause, she's using anchovies and peanuts combined with cornflakes, glued with honey.
And it turned out really nice with the balance taste of saltiness ,sweetness , buttery and crunchy.

100 gm butter
150 gm cornflakes
100 gm peanut, toasted and skinned
100 gm fried ikan bilis  (anchovies)( I used 150 gm)
100 gm honey/golden syrup

Melt butter in a wok, add cornflakes and stir well.
Add roasted peanuts , ikan bilis (anchovies)and stir well.
Pour in honey and mix well combined.
Line small petitins with small paper cups, spoon mixture into small paper cups and press slightly.
Bake in a pre-heated oven at 160C for about 12-15 minutes , till golden brown.
Remove and leave to cool before storing.

Mix all the ingredients.

Spoon the mixture into paper cups
