Thai Chicken Patty on Ciabatta with Sweet Chilli Yoghurt Sauce – Delishar

If you realised by now, I really do like to play around with Thai aromatic spices. I love love love love the freshness of it, how lovely they smell, and how good they taste! I would consider this meal a healthy one as there was no oil used at all. It was made with fresh ingredients, and topped with a healthy low fat sauce too! What’s not to love about this? The sauce is not spicy in my opinion, perhaps the ratio of sweet chilli can be cut down if your children are really sensitive to spices. Husband commented that this was really really nice. Oh yeah, it’s a 30 minutes meal too!

Patties (Serves 2)

  • 300g minced chicken
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp grated galangal/blue ginger
  • 1 tbsp grated old ginger
  • 2 lemongrass, ends and tender part minced
  • 1 tsp corn flour
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper
  • 1/2 yellow onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Topping & bread

  • 8 thin slices of cucumber
  • 10 strips of red pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
  • 2 ciabatta, toasted if you want

Sauce

  • 3 tbsp low fat greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp thai sweet chilli sauce 

Method
Preheat oven to 180C
Mix all the ingredient for the patty in a large bowl. Knead in… Mixture will be sticky.
In a small bowl, mix in ingredients for sauce and set aside.
Divide meat mixture into 2, shape into rectangular patties.
Place on non-stick baking pan. If you are worried it may stick, you can spray the pan with some oil. I skipped this step, and it turned out fine.
Bake for 20 mins or until juice runs clear.
Top bun with shredded carrot, patty, about 2 tbsp sauce, red pepper, cucumber, and parsley.
Serve warm.

Bon appetit!!

Steamed Meat Patty with Preserved Lettuces – Delishar

This is truly a household dish that most Singaporean Chinese would have eaten growing up. I used pork, but feel free to use minced chicken instead. It has many different variations, some families use other preserved vegetable, some with eggs, and some with mashed silken tofu. They are all equally yummy! My 3 y/o (who is picky & quite unadventurous when it comes to food) took a bite of the cut up meat patty/cake on her plate, her eyes immediately lit up. She turned around and asked me, “Mom, what’s this? It’s very yummy, I like it mom!”. That says a lot. It doesn’t look like much but I promise it is really very yummy. It has a good balance of saltiness & sweetness to it. It’s so quick (15 mins) and easy to make, you can almost make it with your eyes close.

Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 250g minced pork (or minced chicken)
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tsp corn flour
  • Dash of white pepper
  • 1/2  of a small bottle of preserved lettuces, diced (approx 2-3 tbsp)
  • 1/2 bottle of the preserved lettuce liquid
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger

Add all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, and mix well.

Spread it out on steaming plate and press to make sure it’s compact.

Steam over boiling water on high heat for 10 mins.

Garnish with parsley or spring onions.
Serve with white rice.

Bon appetit!!
