Yummy Bidor Chicken Biscuits

with 2 comments

This savoury biscuit is certainly one of my all-time favourites… Each bite I take into this lusciously sinful, crispy, flavourful biscuit reminds me of the times when mom and dad drove back to Penang on an 8 hour journey (prior to the construction of the North-South Expressway) where we would pass through small villages and townships, down the scenic route. This biscuit would be my snack after lunch at the infamous Pun Chun Restaurant, renowned for its steamed duck drumstick noodles.

Ingredients:

375g plain flour
275g caster sugar
300g pork fat (cubed finely)
20g garlic (minced)
3tsp baking powder
1# egg (beaten lightly)
100g sesame seeds
50g maltose
2pcs red fermented beancurd (called “Nam Yu” in Cantonese, available in Asian provision stores)
¼tsp white pepper, finely grounded
½tsp Chinese five spice powder
60g peanut oil (can be substituted with any other nut-based oil)

Technique:
1. Mix all the ingredients evenly and blend into dough.

2. Make into small balls, size of small limes.
3. Press into a thin sheet and place on baking trays.
4. Bake in a preheated oven at 160ºC for 20 minutes or till golden brown.
