Try this recipe of adding Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream into your hot pot session to achieve richer, milky soup base! It works for soup noodles too!
A reunion dinner or meal with family on the eve of the annual Lunar New Year has been a tradition among Chinese families especially during the festive season. Many families prepare hot pot for their reunion dinners as it is easy to prepare at the comfort of their own homes and a great way to usher in the new year. With the upcoming Chinese New Year festivity, Anchor Food Professionals has once again created inspirational recipes to encourage everyone to celebrate the occasion by elevating their dinner experience!
“We do understand that travel restrictions continue during Chinese New Year and many families will miss their families’ reunion dinner back at their hometowns. But we hope this will not stop CNY celebrants from enjoying their favourite reunion dish, which is the traditional steamboat that comes in various soup base and a wide selection of proteins and vegetables. With technology, celebrants will still be able to enjoy these gatherings virtually instead” said Jack Tan, Fonterra Brands Malaysia’s Foodservice Director.
He continued: “To inspire the celebration of food and their favourite dish during the CNY occasion, we have specially developed a hot pot recipe using Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream as the key ingredient to elevate the soup base for a richer flavour and silky mouthfeel!”
“Our Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream is a versatile, pre-reduced dairy cream that is not only suitable to add into clear soup base like chicken broth; it can also be added to spicy soups such as Tom Yum and Mala,” Tan added.
Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream is made from fresh New Zealand cream that gives the ideal base in cooking. It requires no reduction, is heat-stable and produces no caking or drying. It retains a full, natural dairy flavour to create great pasta dishes easily and consistently. Usually used for creamy pasta, cream soup and purees, Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream is great for local cuisines. It is acid stable and doesn’t split in sour, acidic (low pH) and spicy recipes, great for curry noodles and even local desserts such as ‘kuih’.
“All you need is just add in Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream into your hot pot soup base in order to enjoy a different hot pot experience with family and loved ones at home! We recommend to add in 100 grams of Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream for every 2litres of soup base, bring it up to simmer, check seasoning and it’s ready to cook your hot pot condiments. For those who would like it creamier, you may add more Anchor Extra Yield Cooking Cream too,” said Tan.
