Pandan Gula Melaka Cake: Pandan Chiffon Cake Revisited
Seven years on, I thought I would revisit the Pandan Chiffon cake again.

Are you familiar with quinoa? It's one of these superfoods that is high in fibre and protein which can be used as a substitute for rice. Because it is high in fibre and protein, it fills you up faster so you don't have to eat as much.

Its nuttiness actually complements the flavours of chicken rice very well!
