Steamed Prawns with Minced Garlic

Inspired by a mighty delicious but pricey dish at Putien, I attempted to remake the same dish at home at a fraction of the price and yes, just as tasty. This steamed dish is very delicious and takes only 5 minutes to cook. But preparation may be a pain, yup, cleaning the prawns. Let's get started.

Raisin Crisps

Crisps are a crunchy and addictive snack. It sits in between cookies and snaps. Not as bodied and filling as cookies and not as thin as snaps. Ideal partner to a hot cup of coffee or tea in the cold evening or to serve at the chitter chatter session with your girlfriends. Super easy to make and tastes awesome with just few easy-to-find ingredients. Click on to impress your guests at the start a brand new year!

Bangkok Food

The Thais are famous for their welcoming smiles and mouth-watering food. Speak of street food, not many countries in the world can offer this much of variety in a single spot. Yes, referring to Bangkok. It was just a short business trip of 4 days, but I am missing authentic Thai food already. This trip, I had the chance of dining on the streets, food courts and the famous restaurant at the shopping malls. Although Tom Yum is a Thai staple, I deliberately avoid it this trip to give way to other Thai specialty. Click on to see my 'report'!

Raisins Cupcakes

It's weekend again and the cool weather makes it perfect to stay at home and snuggle in bed. While some of us can't snuggle in bed whole day, we can get our kids excited with a baking project. I am sharing a super easy foolproof cupcake idea for fun in the kitchen.

Stir-fry Chicken Strips with Sambal Hijau Tumis

I recalled sharing a recipe of the delicious and versatile sambal hijau, and made extras so I could store it for future use. And yesterday was the 'future' after keeping it in the fridge for 1 week. Let's get started with this 5-minute dish.

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!
