15 days of Chinese New Year has come to an end. What do you do with the surplus of mandarin oranges? There are so much to do with them, bake it, cook it, juice it, and even freeze it!
This recipe has lots of flavor yet so simple. It combines juicy, effervescent mandarin orange, an irresistible hint of chilli, lively tart taste and natural sweetness from the orange. A distinctively Eastern flair!

This Chinese New Year delicacy is a MUST have in all household. Other that the delicious buttery crust and sweet pineapple jam, the tarts also hold an auspicious meaning. The pineapple, Ong Lai (旺来) in Hokkien literally means "fortune or prosperity comes". Thus it is believed that pineapple is a lucky fruit that makes one prosperous.

Every year I have TWO reunion dinner, one at my granny's place where the whole entire family will gather around at a super long table to savour the precious moments of happiness together. Each family/single are suppose to prepare/buy a dish, we share the burden so that no one is being overly drain preparing the dinner. Usually we have the reunion dinner 1-2 weeks before Chinese New Year eve so that the married couples can have the reunion dinner with their own family on the actual day.
I missed the heart-warming memories where I was greeted by the wafting aroma of my mum homemade food everyday when I am home. After marriage, we eat out most of the time as we were too busy/tired to cook.
Recently I have received a Chinese New Year Gift Pack from MAGGI®, which motivate me to whip up a tasty homemade meal to delight my family members for our reunion dinner.
