Nam Heong Concubine Lane Homey Chef: Ipoh-inspired classics to cook at home
August 14, 2020
Siew mai inspired by the trolleys of Ipoh's dim sum joints; prawn mee bursting with savoury flavours, requiring barely 15 minutes to make: Nam Heong's new Concubine Lane Homey Chef range of 21 dishes to cook at home brings the classic taste of Ipoh to your family, convenient for contemporary customers.
Home-cooked siew mai is as easy as ABC with Concubine Lane Homey Chef: Remove the package from the freezer, steam the siew mai with boiling water for 10-12 minutes, and defrost the accompanying chilli sauce and sweet sauce in hot water for one minute. Voila - your complete siew mai meal is ready to eat (RM17.50 for nine pieces). Plus, this is no ordinary siew mai but a respected Ipoh-sourced recipe that Nam Heong takes pride in, true to the spirit of the city's famed Concubine Lane and its old-school food offerings.
Crispy prawn rolls - the quintessential dim sum appetiser - are even quicker to reach the table, needing only 5-6 hassle-free minutes of frying. Many of these dishes have less than five steps for preparation, so even amateur home cooks like us should find the process simple and straightforward.
For main meals, many possibilities are available. Mighty Prawn Mee (RM7.60) can be at your fingertips, anytime at home, day or night, in as much time as it takes to read this feature. Boil 400ml of water, add in the spicy Prawn Mee Paste (made with dried prawns and prawn oil) and meat slices, add in noodles and cook for 3-4 minutes for a punchy bowl that'll transport you to crustacean paradise in the comfort of your own home.
If you like familiar dai chow favourites, try the Classic Sweet & Sour Chicken (RM10.50), which can be fried in hot oil or baked in the oven till golden-brown. Alternatively, indulge in the hearty Ipoh Flaming Curry Pork Meat Slices (RM14.80), to be simmered in a pot in low flame for 15 minutes for you to savour its aromatic curry, blended with 10 different spices.
