Sigh...Tried making 해물파전 just now but it turned out to be a flop becos I couldn't flip it over successfully. I think the flipping part is the most difficult ㅠㅠ Hmmm!!! Was it becos I did not get the right batter consistency?? Probably. I think my 해물파전 looks more like "Orh Lua" (in Hokkien) aka Oyster Omelette ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ

Jo, WW and I met up for dinner after work just now.
Yeah! We love 치맥 ^^
They have ala carte menu as well.So sad that 파닭 (Leek Chicken) is not included in the buffet ㅠㅠ
|"Fresh Blood Soup" sounds bloody .... *Yikes|
We love Hite ^^

|I made another attempt to cook 잔치국수 just now. |
This time I did not add salt to the cucumber and wait for the water to surface.
I simply sliced and stir fried the cucumber.
|Hmmm....somehow I feel my noodles was kinda overloaded ㅋㅋㅋ|
It does not feel like 잔치국수 ㅎㅎㅎㅎㅎ
|I am satisfied with the color of the broth this time ^^|

Tried cooking 잔치국수 하고 두부전 (Anchovy soup noodle and Tofu Jeon) for lunch or rather brunch just now. Both dishes are not difficult to make. I browsed through some online recipes for 잔치국수 and noticed that people have their own method to cook the soup base. The recipes are more or less the same with anchovies as the main ingredient of course. Aeris Kitchen has a very simple method of cooking 잔치국수 ^^
|Preparing the cucumber as one of the topping for 잔치국수. I sliced the cucumber and added some salt to it. You will see water from the cucumber few mins later. Towel dried the cucumber and add some minced garlic to it.|
|Mixed the cucumber and minced garlic. Lightly stir fried it.|
Next, I prepared the egg topping. I dun like to eat cooked egg yolk, so I did not separate the egg yolk and egg white. I used two eggs but I think one egg should be enough.
|Most people used minced beef. I replaced pork with beef since I dun eat beef. Marinating the pork slices was done by using sesame oil, mirin Mirim, salt, extra virgin olive oil and pepper.|
|I prepared the broth by adding radish, spring onions, kelp and anchovies.|
|Toppings for my Janchi Guksu. |
There is room for improvement to my cucumber ....
|I cooked the noodles using the same method for Kimchi Bibim Guksu . |
Hey, it was fun and therapeutic to decor the noodle ㅋㅋㅋ
|Hmmm ... here's my 잔치국수 in dark color broth ㅎㅎㅎ|
Add the hot broth to the noodle once ready to serve.
|Next is 두부전.|
I used the recipe from AerisKitchen for 두부전.
Actually, my mother used to cook this and she added prawns to the tofu.
|I used extra virgin olive oil to fry the 두부전.|
|Errmmm ... my 두부전 are not nicely shaped, unlike the ones made by Aeri ㅎㅎㅎ|
|Overall, I am satisfied with my own cooking today and there are definitely room for improvements ^ ^|

I tried cooking 김치 비빔국수 just now.
Got the recipe from Aeriskitchen and I made slight variations to it.
LOL this is funny. I dun mind couple displaying affection for each other in public as long as they dun overdo it. However, I will feel awkward if I am alone with a 닭살 커플. I would be very happy for the couple if they can still be 닭살 커플 till old age, and not just during the dating period ^^

새해 복 많이 받으세요^^
Today is rest day for me. So tired after all the visiting ㅋㅋㅋ
I have been craving for 닭 볶음탕 for a long time, so I told mum to let me do the cooking for dinner.
I followed the recipes from Aeriskitchen, with slight variation becos I don't have any sesame seeds.
|I put the chicken, carrots, potato, onions and followed by the sauce into a pot.|
|Next, I add some water and let it boil.|
|Almost ready ^^|
Its easier than I thought ㅋㅋㅋ
Errmmm but whether it taste ok a not is another thing ㅎㅎㅎ
|While cooking the chicken stew, I also prepare the eggs for 계란찜. I followed the recipe from Aeriskitchen as well, becos she has a different way of cooking the steamed egg. Instead of mixing the eggs with water, Aeri boiled the water with kelp first followed by adding the eggs. I added some chopped carrots, spring onions and a dash of pepper to the beaten eggs.|
|Boiling water with kelp and 1/2 tablespoon of 멸치 액젓 (Fish Sauce).|
|I removed the kelp and add the egg mixture.|
|I also add a bit of sesame oil and some chopped red chillies when the egg is almost cooked.|
|내가 만든 계란 찜 ^^|
Somehow I can never make my 계란 찜 "puffy" ㅠㅠ
|내가 만든 닭 볶음탕 ^^|
I can't really remember how it should taste like but I am satisfied ㅎㅎㅎ
|Mum cooked the veggies ^^|
