紅豆砵仔糕 Hong Kong Style Red Bean Pudding

I'd been not to myself lately and hence been lazy trying out new recipes. And so just day by day, just browsing on others beautiful food they have posted.  And when you are this lazy mood, sometimes it is good too viewing other bloggers posting their beautiful dishes, kuih, and cakes, it definitely will perks you up a bit and get you move right back to your track.

Those who have visited to Hong Kong might have tried this Steamed Rice Cake with red beans in it.  Well, I've been to Hong Kong but unfortunately I have not try this steam pudding before.  And if you are one person who like to watch Hong Kong TVB series, you may have come across this well talked about "Put Chai Koh" at times in the episodes.
