What is Fritillaria Bulb?

Fritillaria is a type of perennial, bulbous flowering plants belonging to the lily family. It is found in temperate regions in the Northern hemisphere. There are many species of Fritillaria that are toxic. Yellow Himalayan fritillary (Fritillaria cirrhosa) is commonly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat respiratory conditions. Fritillaria has a bitter, sweet, and slightly cold nature.

 

Fritillaria are used in TCM to treat respiratory conditions connected to the lungs.

  • Asthma
  • Bronchitis
  • Cough
  • Hypertension
  • Pneumonia
  • Swelling
  • Tuberculosis

 

Many of the medicinal applications of fritillaria are connected to the lungs. In traditional Chinese medicine, Fritillaria is known for its ability to eliminate and decrease the production of phlegm and mucus by cooling and moistening the lungs, as well as reducing inflammation. Fritillaria also has potent antitussive properties providing relief from coughs.

How to select and buy Fritillaria Bulb 如何選擇和購買靓川贝 DOUBLE-STEAMED #SNOWPEAR WITH #FRITILLARIA BULB NOMSS.COM FOOD RECIPE BLOG #川貝燉雪梨

How To Select and Buy Fritillaria Bulb 如何選擇和購買靓川贝

I suggest buying whole grain when selecting and buying Fritillaria compared to purchasing the powder form. It is easier to distinguish whether it is genuine. The original Fritillaria Bulb typically is spherical shaped and has a diameter of 2mm. The shape of the Chuanbei is structure with a large flap hugging a smaller flap. If you look closely, the middle it has the shape of a crescent moon.

Pre-polished Fritillaria Bulb original color is light brown. Most market Fritillaria is treated and bleached to be pearly white. Coffee brownish yellow colored Fritillaria Bulb has become harder to buy, so it is very important to soak it in water to remove impurities before consuming. Also Pingbei 平貝 is cheaper than Chuanbei 川貝.

PAN FRIED SOYA NOODLES RECIPE | 豉油皇炒麵

PAN FRIED SOYA NOODLES RECIPE | 豉油皇炒麵

PAN FRIED SOYA NOODLES RECIPE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

I can never get enough of pan fried soya noodles! It is a classic Cantonese comfort dish. Pan Fried Soya Noodles 豉油皇炒麵 pairs so well with congee for breakfast or over dim sum! Those thin, crispy pan fried noodles are so irresistible and the soya sauce just hits home! This simple dish requires no modifications. I never get tired of it! It is perfect being so simple to make – yet you can definitely add a protein here and a garnish there if you really felt like it! Plus it literally takes no effort to make! All you need is a ripping hot pan! And maybe some XO chili oil!

 

PAN FRIED SOYA NOODLES RECIPE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

What makes a great pan fried soya noodle dish is a really HOT pan! One that makes the oil ripping hot to give the noodles a nice sear and fry! I used this fry pan from Ballarini. This pan uses a signature Granitium nonstick coating that has exceptional scratch resistance, quick release and effortless cleanup. It is also oven proof up to 160°C!

 

To make these noodles you will need Hong Kong style egg noodles, light soy sauce (thinner and lighter in color), dark soy sauce (less salty, thicker and adds colour), sesame oil, salt, sugar, shaoxing wine, white pepper, bean sprouts, scallions, and Chinese mushroom (optional – be sure to resuscitate it in water for a few hours prior to cooking).

CHINESE SOUP FOR BACK PAIN RECIPE 社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯

CHINESE SOUP FOR BACK PAIN RECIPE 社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯

社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯 CHINESE SOUP FOR BACK PAIN RECIPE NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

One of my favorite past time is making Chinese soup. I love the nourishing and medicinal aspect of healing the body from within. Postpartum Me includes a lot of back pain, weak knees and tender tendons. This Chinese soup recipe is perfect for those suffering with nagging chronic back pains.

This soup is neutral and suitable for most people. While it carries a subtle bitter taste from Codonopsis Pilosula (aka poor man’s ginseng) it is still easy to drink.

 

The soup colour has a dark color from the black bean and Morinda officinalis / Indian Mulberry.

I do not suggest eating the meat from the pork bones after the soup is ready unlike a those from the Green Radish and Carrot with Pork Bone Soup Recipe 青紅蘿蔔豬骨湯.

Health Benefits of Chinese Herbs

 

社仲 Eucommia ulmoides – enhance bones strength and body muscles, reduce fattiness, enhance energy metabolism and antioxidants

巴戟 Morinda officinalis / Indian Mulberry – enhances libido because it improves kidney functions. Useful to treat urinary incontinence, female infertility due to cold uterus, pain and numbness because of wind-cold, soreness and weakness of low back and knee, and rheumatism etc.

党参 Codonopsis pilosula – enhance immunity, dilate blood vessels, lower blood pressure, improve microcirculation, enhance hematopoietic function, and so on.

 

社仲巴戟豬尾骨燉湯 CHINESE SOUP FOR BACK PAIN RECIPE NOMSS FOOD BLOG VANCOUVER

I love using my OXO fat separator! It has a capacity for 4-cup/900mL. Pour the soup into the separator, and watch the fat rise to the top while soup settles to the bottom. The heat resistant strainer catches unwanted bits, and the stopper prevents fat from rising to the top of the spout. Once the soup has settled, remove the strainer and the stopper and pour out perfect clear soup. A shield prevents the gravy from spilling over the top of the separator, instead of through the spout. And it is dishwasher safe! This is the best fat separator I’ve purchased lately!

Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine RICHMOND | 福滿樓海鮮酒家 Richmond Oval

Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine RICHMOND | 福滿樓海鮮酒家 Richmond Oval

Fortune Terrace Chinese Cuisine 福滿樓海鮮酒家 is a high-end Chinese seafood restaurant located in Richmond by the Richmond Oval – next to Ora a large scale residential community with T&T Supermarket. The restaurant is spacious with a large screen projection screen (perfect for weddings). Service is friendly and was not pretentious.

There is a good variety of dim sum selection on the menu: steamed, deep fried, marinated, braised and plenty of specialty items. Channeling Yum Cha HK, they’ve even got those super cute Boas with eyes and pig faces!

It’s not often you see grown men and women playing with their food! Of course, this salty egg yolk bun was soft and moist with a creamy center filling.

Steamed Shrimp Dumplings: Although it was $9 per order, there was five pieces. Thin skin and has a bouncy mouthfeel. There was nothing to complain about these Ha Gaws.

Deep Fried Mince Pork Dumplings: A like the gelatinous dough with a salty center of minced pork. The portions were a little small and leaves you begging for more.

 

Steamed Beef Balls

 

Special Steamed Rice Rolls with Tofu, Scallops and Eggplant: Not exactly a “roll” but this was one of our favourite dishes. The filling is tasty but is hard to share if you have more than four people.

Steamed Marinated Beef Tripe: I like the marinated flavours of stay and jalapeno. The tripe is soft and tender.

 

Truffle Siu Mai: These bite size pork dumplings has a mild taste of truffle that is not too over-powering.

Snow Pea Tips: Served with consomme and lots of dried shrimp.

 

Fortune Terrace has a few hits and misses but has a good variety of dishes. We like to come here for yum cha since it is close to work and there are plenty of free parking underground. Price point is on the higher end, but it isn’t over the top when you compare other newer Chinese restaurants in the area.
