We were introduced to a small segment of spices, out of the 120 that were used in Lucknawi cuisine before commencing the meal. Using age old secret recipes which are their family’s heirloom, the chefs of AWADH uses these aromatic herbs, spices, flavored ghee, and saffron for their dishes. It is definitely a dying art which the chefs uses to temper with the dishes as they had mastered the complex cooking techniques picked up from young.
A Singapore brand established since 2005, Chui Lau Heung is known for its durian snowy mooncakes, durian pastries as well as desserts. Due to their continuous efforts to implement innovation into their creations yet retaining the quality, Chui Lau Heung had managed to hit the shelves of international markets as well.
One such innovative creation would be their Mini Mao Shan Wang Durian Crystal Mooncakes as shown, which comes in a dazzling “jewel façade” box. In packs of 2 and a total of 6 pieces, each mooncake had a translucent white skin of gelatinous texture. Choose to eat it frozen or let it defrost before consumption and enjoy the exotic taste of durian.
