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!

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.

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.
