Never saw how to make meat jell. I guess it is made like this way: put some blocks of cooked meat in a container which is full of warm thick pigskin soup. When the soup condense, the meat jell is done.
He-he, when I was a kid, I like putting the meat jell in the rice soup. Watching the jell melting gradually in the soup is very funny :)
Can you believe the food showed in the picture is all made of vegetable? Yeah, it is true! There are some vegetable dish restaurants near the Kaiyuan Temple in Chaozhou. Although they are all made of vegetable, they taste good!
There is a very famous roadside food stall selling beef rice noodles in Chaozhou. Cheap and delicious! A bowl of beef rice noodles soup is only 5 RMB. The stall is near the West Lake Park. Many people will have a bowl of beef rice noodles soup after doing exercise in the morning.
The covers of the cooked rice rolls are made like the way of making the covers of Changfen(a Chaozhou snack which I mentioned on the first page ) the difference between Cooked Rice Rolls and Changfen are the fillings. The fillings of the Cooked Rice Rolls can be ground pickle radishes , ground bamboo shoot, or ground meat, etc. he-he, very yummy too!
Oh, oh, rice again! Sorry, I really do not know how to translate its name in English. Guozhi is all made of rice. It is a kind of thick soup. The Guozhi itself takes very light. The local people usually drink Guozhi with spicy meet, spicy eggs or other spicy food. It is another traditional snack in Chaozhou. People usually drink it in the afternoon when they feel hungry.
Pan Frying Cakes are another kind of Chaozhou snacks I love. Almost every time I go back home, I will eat these cakes. The cakes are made of nothing but rice. It seems there are many Chaozhou snacks are connected to the rice. That is true. We almost eat rice in every meal. The other days, I was in Luoyang, which is located at the middle north of China. The main food there is wheat which makes me very shocked. He-he, then I realized not everyone in the world have rice as their main food, although I had known this fact before :)
Usually, these cakes will be pan-fried with curry and eggs, and then put some very tasty sauce on them. I think the sauce, which is made of ground meet, dried mushroom and some spices, is very important to these cakes. Enjoy them, my friends :)
Rice peach is a kind of Chaozhou cakes. Both the cover and the filling are made of rice. Because this cake is made into a peach shape, local people call it Rice Peach. Rice peaches are usually used to serve the forefathers.
Do you feel amazing that rice can be made into so many kinds of snacks? Rice is really nice food! Thin rice balls are usually cooked with the superfine clear soup and ground meat. The thin rice balls soup will be a nice snack when you are feel hungry in the afternoon. It seems there is no roadside food stall selling thin rice balls soup. Chaozhou people like bringing some thin rice balls home from the market and cook by their selves. Ha-ha, so, if you come to Chaozhou one day, and if you want to have some thin rice balls soup, come to my home :) I make it for you: P
If you go to Chaozhou one day, never ever miss these preserved fruits! Remember, there is no anywhere else sells these very delicious preserved fruits! These preserved fruits are nice food for the relaxing time. Mangos, strawberries, carambolas, guavas……can be preserved. They taste sweet and sour. Oh~ my mouth is already watering!
Guess what it is?It is Mashed Taro, a kind of desserts in Chaozhou. Mashed Taro can be eat directly or be the fillings in some cakes. I think those people like eating desserts will like this dish :)
Many western people like eating potatoes, right? But have they ever made potatoes like this? Do the potatoes with transparent cover make your mouth watering? You can eat these potato cakes by steaming or sautéing. They are another nice kind of Chaozhou snacks for the afternoon tea :)
Fermented bean curd cake is a very traditional kind of Chaozhou snacks. It contains peanuts, sesames, meat, garlic, fermented bean curd and so on. Its name is because it has a flavor of fermented bean curd which tastes very nice.These cakes are only sold in Chaozhou. So, when you come to Chaozhou one day, don’t forget to taste them.
I really miss these sweet potato cakes! It’s easy to make these cakes. Cut the sweet potatoes into pieces and dip them in the flour paste. Then fry them until they look golden. The crisp surface covers the sweet potatoes. They taste so good! When I was a kid, sometimes I would buy some sweet potato cakes on the way home after school. It was only 0.2 RMB a piece that time. I guess it costs 0.5~1RMB today. I don’t know, because I haven’t had them for a long time!
In Chaozhou, people make radish cakes to serve the deities on some Chinese traditional festivals. Radish cakes are mainly made of radishes and rice powder. Mushed radishes and rice powder are mixed with some water and then steamed until the mixture is cooked. We often saut¡§¦ed the radish cakes before eating. That makes the radish cakes more tasty.
I like these cakes! Hackberry cakes are made of rice powder and the leaves of hackberry. They are usually made during Qingming Festival (a Chinese traditional festival) because the leaves of the hackberry are very tender during this time. They’re not only taste nice but good for digestion. I like these cakes especially the color. The color of these cakes is totally natural from the color of the leaves without any artificial pigment.
