Fried Nian Giao (Kue Keranjang Goreng)

Today is Chinese New Year and this year is the year of Ox according to the Chinese zodiac. One of the food during Chinese New Year is Nian Giao (Kue Keranjang in Indonesian language, some called it also Dodol) which is made from glutinous rice flour with brown sugar. It has a soft chewy sticky texture. Even though this Nian Gao can be found all year around, the best time to eat it is during Chinese New Year.

People usually will eat Nian Giao just as it is, but there are many ways to serve it. One of the best ways to serve Nian Giao is to fry it in eggs and sliced shallots which I made this morning for my breakfast. I had my fried Nian Giao with a cup of Chinese tea.

Tukang Kue Pancong (Bandros)

Before the Working From Home was implemented because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I usually would see this Tukang Kue Pancong with his cart on the street every morning on the way to my working place. He started to make and sell the kue Pancong from 6.00 am until the latest 10.00 am. Most of the time, at 9.30 am, he would stop to make it because the batter already gone.

Kue Pancong (some people also known it as Bandros) is an Indonesian traditional snack from West Java that is made of  rice flour and coconut milk.

The special mold pan to make the Kue Pancong.

The very simple ingredients which are only rice flour, coconut, water and salt.

Besides the special mold pan, it also needs a special hook.

This is how the tukang kue pancong used the hook.

Aerogreens salad.

My ex-student who is majoring in agriculture at a university in Canada, has just started to have his own company named Aerogreens. He explained to me that Aerogreens is Indonesia's first Vertical Aeroponics farm, which means is they grow their plants in a controlled environment, to bring out the sweetness and buttery texture of their vegetables. At Aerogreens, aside from just producing our own vegetables, they make salads as well.

All their vegetables at Aerogreens are harvested fresh to order, so nothing is stored in the fridge before hand. It's pesticide free

So, here I had a try one of the salads from Aerogreens.
