In collaboration with Bosch Home (SG), we embarked on a mission to recreate a series of Lost Recipes of Singapore; and the first recipe we’re dishing out is the Yi Zi Ban – a Hakka snack with over 300 years of history.
Yi Zi Ban is a Hakka traditional snack from Tai Po County, Guangdong Province. It has a history of more than 300 years. One long forgotten dish, the story is that Hakka mother will prepare this dish for her son when he travels on a long journey overseas and to ensure his safe return.
The skin is made from glutinous rice flour, texture similar to mochi. The filling is a textural delight as it has the softness of tofu, the crunchiness from the black fungus and the meatiness from the finely diced pork encased in chewy stretchy ‘QQ’ skin. The banana leaf perfumes the snack when it is steamed. It is one seriously good delicious snack!
