CNY Special - IV



In today's CNY Special (IV edition) writeup, I will touch on 1 Teochew dish and 1 Hakka Kueh prepared using China or Chinese leeks (中国大蒜) which symbolise abundance.

China Leeks

1. Stir Fried Pek Tor He with China Leeks [Teochew]

Traditionally, many Teochews love to stir fry Pek Tor He (Rabbit Fish / 白肚鱼; a.k.a Prosperity Fish / 发财鱼 or CNY Fish / 拜年鱼) with China leeks during CNY.

2. China Leek Kueh [Hakka]

The Hakkas love China leek kuehs (客家蒜粄)! The ingredients used include chopped China leeks, bean curd and dried shrimps.

Today is the 1st day of Chinese (Lunar) New Year. I wish everyone Gong Xi Fa Cai (Mandarin) or Keong Hee Huat Chai
(Teochew) or Kung He Fatt Choy (Hakka).

Hi,
I just realised that I was already up for WS, by looking at your comment in my site. Just hope that I could post photos on a regular basis rather than procrastinate to post photo-laden entries. Anyway, thanks for dropping by and Happy Chinese New Year! :)

Hi Dora, thanks for the visit.

When i saw your picturs i then have to check where is ur location why u have boiled dumplings in your post. I know it's chinese new year so am missing dumplings. the egg and the leeks and also the eggs and chinese cabbage is my favorite dumpling meat. I love to eat it the way it is shown here. Love it with vinegar. hmmm yummm. I am drooling.

Hmm i miss fish too because the fish these days are very expensive so we never buy any.

Anyway, wish you all the best this new year. Xin Nian Kuai Le (i though this is Mandarin) and the Gong Xi Fa Cai is Cantonese.

Happy Chinese New Year!

Thanks for sharing these new recipes. We also got Chinese leeks here in the Philippnes but I have only used them on a chicken recipe I did. I never knew that you could use them for dumplings! Thanks again!
