  14. Your videos are very easy to follow, and you give very slow and precise instructions. Thank you, these vids are great! I tried the egg tart recipe and it came out wonderfully – it actually tasted like the stuff I got in Hong Kong!

  15. Your yau kwok reminds me of my late grandmother. She used to make them for me when she was still alive. Thanks for uploading this video.

  16. Hi wantanmien, this reminded me of 咖喱角! I hope you can make a video on curry puffs in the future 🙂

  17. wantanmien you should speak louder because my mother really likes your cooking but my mom can't hear you so could you just speak a little louder if that's not too much to request. thanks

  18. omg I miss that!! My grandma used to make tons of this for new year then its my breakfast for a month!! Now I'm in usa and this makes me homesick 🙁

  19. Hi Maria, I'm thinking about making this for Chinese New Year, do you think I can substitute the flour + egg mixture with ready made puff pastry from supermarket?
    Thanks and wishing you a Happy Chinese New Year in advance!

  20. You are welcome. Thank you for trying my recipe. This recipe is not use puff pastry. Sorry, I don't know. I think don't work well. You can try it. Please tell me how it worked out. Thank you. Same to you and your family too <3

  21. Maria,我今日做咗油角,我減食材一半份量,因只我一個人享用,其餘兩人怕太肥。味道非常好,因買不到芝麻,用花生、腰果、椰絲糖做餡料。依然不錯,但仍須多練習包的技術謝謝!智華

  22. You can use puff pastry as long as you can keep the filling inside. Are you going to fry it or bake it? Puff pastry may not fry well since it may soak up the oil. It will feel and taste different for sure.

  23. Thanks Pat, I thought of frying it like how Maria did. As I'm new to all this I thought using ready made puff pastry might have a more guaranteed result. I'll have to give both options a go.

  24. Hi Judy, I a used a glass around 7 cm. For this recipe you can use 9 or 10 mould size or as you like how big for the size is. Thank you ^^

  25. Wow! Your video is the best, great close up! I love all your traditional Cantonese style home cooking recipes, reminds me of how my mom made them. Thank you for all your hard work in making these videos! 恭喜發財! 馬年龍馬精神!

  26. 你好啊Maria!你的视频好好看啊!教得好清楚!请问可唔可以教下点做蛋散呢??记得小时候最中意食的就是蛋散,今天突然看到你这个视频,好想学做蛋散呢!
