Rice, Pasta & Noodles

Creamy Garlic Chicken Pasta with Evaporated Milk

I was (and still am) so in love with this pasta dish after experimenting with a garlic and evaporated milk sauce that I had to cook it three days in a row, lol. But the husband and I didn’t get sickly of it! Though I might have called this pasta dish ‘creamy’, it wasn’t really […]

Fried Mee Tai Mak Recipe

Mee Tai Mak (米苔目) is one of my favourite varieties of Chinese rice noodles. It’s also known as Lao Shu Fen (老鼠粉) which sounds kinda cute, haha. I guess the name came about because of the shape of the noodle which is tapered like a mouse tail. Besides having mee tai mak in soup, it […]

Thai Seafood Noodle Soup Recipe

Sawadee ka! Welcome to the Land of Smiles! 🙂 For some reason, I didn’t order my usual Tom Yum Soup during my last visit to Nakhon Kitchen so I thought I would make one at home (see my Seafood Tom Yum Soup Recipe) but turn it into a one-dish meal for dinner instead. And that […]

Seafood Brown Rice Risotto Recipe

To make this recipe, you would need a flavoursome seafood stock. Luckily I had kept prawn heads/shells and fish heads/bones (can also get from NTUC Fairprice) in the freezer so what I did was to fry these odds and ends with some sunflower oil till cooked and fragrant and then added leftover vegetable broth. I […]

Red Bean Porridge Recipe

至亲爱的奶奶与外婆,祝你们母亲节快乐。 虽然你们已离开两个多月了,我还是好想念你们。 I remembered the day when a distant relative visited my grandmother at hospital with her homemade red bean porridge. Grandma had no appetite then but managed to eat a few mouthfuls and said it was good because the red beans made the porridge somewhat sweet and fragrant. So I thought of making red […]

Tomato Sambal Conchiglie Recipe

I initially planned to cook a vegetable curry so I bought egg plant and long beans but in the end, I came up with this pasta dish instead which was a marriage of Italian and Asian flavours – a cross between a bolognese pasta and a mee goreng probably? Lol. Sounds like a weird combo? […]

Fan Choy Recipe

Fan Choy (饭菜 in Cantonese) is what I call the ‘dim sum version’ of the char siew rice which is affordably priced (small portion though) and readily available at those stalls selling dim sum and steamed buns at hawker centres or coffeeshops. For my recipe, I chose to use brown rice (it’s healthier than white!) […]

Low Carb Tagliatelle al Ragu (using baiye tofu)

The subject heading is not wrong. This is indeed a low carb pasta recipe as I’ve substituted tagliatelle with baiye tofu instead. Baiye tofu typically comes in a compressed block of beancurd skin so we just need to slice it up in 1cm thickness and then use our hands to loosen it up into individual […]

Stuffed Peppers with Salsa Rice and Chicken

Normally, I would bake stuffed peppers in the oven with a layer of cheese on top just like this simple recipe with minced beef, onions and cherry tomatoes. This time round, I decided to make a one dish meal out of red peppers and hence used a mix of brown and red rice to bulk […]

Baked Brown Rice with Chicken, Mushrooms and Cheese

Casseroles or one dish meals make excellent weekday dinners. And honestly, this baked rice is so versatile, you can just use any ingredients you like especially if you have plenty of leftovers from your recent CNY feast or steamboat to use up – meatballs, bacon, ham, luncheon meat, sausages, bell peppers, broccoli, etc. Also, you […]

Spaghetti with Laksa Pesto

There are no national boundaries in the world of food. I really couldn’t agree more with this. There are just so many variations we can come up with for every dish and it’s done by putting together different flavours and ingredients that somehow still marry in the end. Europe meets South East Asia in this […]

Tabyeet (Iraqi Style Slow-cooked Chicken with Rice)

Since I bought a new slow cooker a while ago (can’t believe I took this long as it’s such a handy appliance to have!!), I’ve been experimenting with new recipes such as this one-pot rice dish which is like the Middle Eastern version of a chicken dum biryani. What I really like about it is its exotic flavours […]

Rice Burger Recipe (with beef and onions)

Inspired by one of my favourite rice burgers from Mos Burger – the Yakiniku Rice Burger, I made a similar burger filled with stir-fried beef and onions. It was like a reconstruction of a beef rice bowl, made in a fast-food way. I oven-grilled the rice patties to give them a crisp on the surface […]

Satay Bee Hoon Recipe

Satay Bee Hoon (or rice vermicelli with spicy peanut sauce) is another one of my favourite Singaporean local eats because I just love the spices that go into the sauce and that very nutty flavour. Peanuts are rich in monounsaturated fats and antioxidants that promote heart health but they are also very high in calories […]

Glass Noodle Salad Recipe (with chicken)

In any Thai restaurant that I go to, I hardly miss out on ordering a seafood glass noodle salad. I really enjoy the combination of salty, tangy, sweet and spicy flavours of the refreshing sauce dressing that never fails to whet up my appetite. For my version of a glass noodle salad, I used shredded […]

Healthy Laksa Recipe (with soy milk)

Laksa is a spicy noodle soup with a curry-like gravy that’s very popular in Malaysia and Singapore. Foodies here will probably know how ‘unhealthy’ laksa can be because of the use of coconut milk to give it that rich and creamy flavour and not forgetting that layer of reddish-looking oil that’s always floating on the […]
