Baa Yir (Deep-Fried Yellow Bean Paste) Recipe
4 oz beans, moong, dried
1 tbsp flour, all-purpose
2 tsp red curry paste
1 tbsp soy sauce, light
1 tsp sugar, granulated
2 kaffir lime leaves
1 oil, for deep-frying
4 tbsp sugar, granulated
6 tbsp vinegar, rice
1/2 tsp salt
Soak the moong beans in water for 30 minutes; drain. Roll the kaffir
leaves into thin cigarettes; slice into slivers. In a mortar pound the
drained moong beans to form a paste. Add the other ingredients in
turn, stirring well. Pluck a small piece of the paste and form into
a ball the size of a walnut. Do not mould too tightly. Deep-fry the
balls until golden brown, drain and serve with the thick sweet sauce
THE SAUCE: Gently heat the three ingredients until the sugar
dissolves. Allow to cool before serving.

Food Tips of the Week
In deciding on a meal plan, it is important to attempt to moderate your consumption of fats, refined carbohydrate and salt.
The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its all the rage, but it is truly safe and healthy for you?
Eliminating carbs might mean missing out on necessary nutrients from 'good' carbohydrate foods which should be part of any well-balanced diet, especially those that we get from grains, vegetables and fruits.
Higher consumption of animal-based products could lead into increased consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which a few authorities believe will increase the chance of coronary problems.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes pickled shallots, chives and spring onions)
The onion, leek and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulfides, a chemical which experts believe might be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is precious little definitive proof published, allyl sulphides are also believed to help with colds, arteriosclerosis and fatigue.
Foods containing allyl sulfides also have a low calorie count, so you should add them to your diet system.
