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.

Toasted Baguette

It's been more than a week now since my last post. Been extremely busy with spring cleaning. Yes, although I have tried some new recipes at home but am sharing one for now. It's a very simple toasted baguette. Sounds easy, right? But I have tried more than 5 times before making the perfect toasted baguette. Pair it with a nice warm thick mushroom soup or simply dip it with a bowl of tangy tomato soup. Or... coarsely crush them to go with your favorite salad. I guarantee it won't disappoint.

Steamed White Pomfret

Have improvised this recipe with chopped shitake mushroom making it an even more wholesome dish. The smooth and soft steamed shitake mushroom, soaked in the garlic oil and soy sauce is really a perfect condiment to go with steamed rice or plain porridge.
