Make a dough out of
flour, yeast, salt, eggs and two cups of water. Mix the pork, soy sauce,
spring onions, ginger and carrots and stuff the chicken with this mixture.
Steam the stuffed chicken for 30 minutes. Roll out the dough and wrap
it neatly around the chicken. Bake the chicken in the oven at 190 degrees
during 20 minutes.
Beggar's chicken is
a Chinese recipe, unfortunately I cannot give you the Chinese name.
Serve with rice and a cucumber salad.
Cut the chicken meat
off the bones; add 3 cups of water and some salt to the bones and cook
15 minutes. Mix the meat with the chili paste, leave it for 10 minutes.
Now add the stock from the bones and cook 10 minutes. Cut the bamboo
shoots. Add beans, bamboo shoots, shrimp paste and lemon grass and cook
15 minutes more. Add the coriander leaves.
