Steamed egg custard with shimeji mushroom

Although fried food with all its crisp and aromatic lure is hard to resist, but we should not indulge too much, especially in this kind of hot weather. For a change, we can prepare a steamed dish to appease all without compromising on the taste buds. Am sharing a super simple steamed egg custard that can be served as a dish during lunch or dinner, or just a one-dish meal on its own.

Sambal hijau tumis

Sambal is chilly jam in Malay. It is a very common condiment in any Malay restaurant that serves rice. However, I am sharing a special sambal that was popularized by the Indonesians. Sambal hijau tumis is a special type of sambal that is not spicy and yet still super appetizing that matches perfectly with any rice meal. Let's call it the mild sambal that fits everyone's stomach.

Stir-fried Long Beans with Minced Tofu & Waxed Meat

With an extremely hectic lifestyle being a working mum, we are so tempted to just pack an instant meal from McDonald's drive-thru and call it a meal. I have discovered this dish at the local rice stall and it have attempted to make it at home with slight modification. one word to describe, YUMS!

Spring rolls with sweet potato and yam filling

Since it's a long weekend, I am sharing a simple idea for party food. We know some of us like to host tea parties over long weekends sans vacation. I promise this is going to be the easiest party food ever and required no more than 5 ingredients to get the thumbs up from your party guests. Spring rolls are not just easy to make, also less messy for kids to eat while parents treat themselves to a good get-together.

Nasi Lemak

Malaysia is celebrating its 60th birthday today and how can we celebrate this special occasion without its most beloved food, the nasi lemak. I have previously posted an article about nasi lemak bungkus and today, am sharing the recipe to making its most important ingredient, the sambal or the chilly jam that can either make or break the entire assemble.

Potato Tuna Nuggets

Potato is a very common kitchen staple ingredient and it is easily found all year around. So common that we may even overstock them at home sometimes. Today, I'm sharing an easy-done-than-said special nugget idea which is health and yummy. It is a perfect item to serve with children around. Using only few ingredients and little effort, am sure you will set the party ready in a jiffy.

Longevity Buns

I attended a wonderful birthday dinner of one of my elderly aunts. The meal was good and the ambiance was just perfect. Every dish served has a good symbolic meaning and one course caught my attention and it was the longevity steamed buns or known as paus. Paus are literally steamed buns.

Prawn Porridge (congee)

Two weeks ago, I share a meatball porridge recipe after trying it myself . Boy, it became an instant favorite! So the following weekend, I attempted another porridge and it too, became a new entry in my family's please-cook-again list. One may ask, why porridge every Sunday? The answer is pretty simple, I want everyone at home to enjoy a wholesome healthy dinner whilst I get my fair share no-fuss cooking, porridge fits the bill, perfectly. Since I was able to buy fresh prawns (shrimps) from the market, so it was really a no-brainer to cook porridge.
