Chicken Mushroom and Pumpkin Rice – Rice Cooker Recipe

One of my favourite one-dish meals to make is Rice Cooker Chicken Rice. That is by combining and cooking rice, chicken stock, spring onions, sliced ginger, garlic cloves, pandan leaves and chicken in a regular rice cooker. This really saves a lot of time and effort than making Poached Chicken Rice Recipe the conventional way. With that […]

Yu Xiang Rou Si Recipe 鱼香肉丝

Yu Xiang Rou Si (鱼香肉丝) is a very popular dish in Sichuan cuisine that combines the respective elements of sweetness, saltiness, spiciness and sourness all in one. Though Yu Xiang Rou Si literally means ‘fish fragrance shredded pork’, the dish itself does not contain any trace of fish at all. Not even fish sauce. In […]

Brown Rice Vermicelli with Stewed Pork

Brown Rice vs. White Rice. All that ongoing health hype is probably making more and more people in Singapore choose whole grains over refined grains. Besides brown rice itself, you may have noticed that our supermarkets here are now stocked up with brown rice products as well – brown rice pasta, brown rice flour and […]

Sesame Oil Chicken Recipe 麻油鸡

The combination of ginger and sesame oil in Chinese cooking can be really amazing. It’s what I call a sensory experience because before we even get to taste the dish, we would already get a whiff of aroma that fills up the entire kitchen while the chicken is braising in an enticing sauce. That’s exactly […]

Chop Suey Recipe

Chop suey is a Western-Chinese (mostly found overseas) dish consisting of meat and/or seafood stir fried with vegetables and bound in a starchy sauce. It literally translates to 杂碎 (‘za sui’) which means an assortment of small, miscellaneous things. I must say a chop suey is really an ideal way to turn the odds and […]

Chinese Chicken Chop Recipe 中式鸡扒

I shared a Chinese Pork Chop Recipe yesterday that was inspired by my Granny’s dish of the same name. And today I’m posting a Chinese Chicken Chop Recipe. 😆 Sounds the same but they are different. 😀 In this recipe, I’ve used honey instead of sugar which gives the chicken a nice glaze and flavour.

Steamed Pork Ribs with Black Bean Sauce Recipe

Steamed Pork Ribs is always one of my must-order dim sum items as I love the salty flavour of the fermented black beans and the tender pork ribs that are always served steaming hot. However, there is one thing that I don’t appreciate about the dish i.e. the pork ribs used are often too fatty. […]

This Sugar Snap Peas Recipe is a very simple stir fry of chicken meat and vegetables which can also be easily substituted with other ingredients that you normally prefer such as cauliflower, broccoli, snow peas etc. However, I would suggest keeping one essential element of this stir fry i.e. the lotus root as it really […]

Fried porridge (炒粥) is like the porridge version of a fried rice where you literally fry porridge with an assortment of ingredients and seasonings. It’s a Malaysian dish that originated from Penang.

Stuffed Red Dates with Glutinous Rice Cakes 心太软

The first time I got to know about the dessert snack “心太软” (literally means ‘heart too soft’) was from a local Channel 8 drama probably about 2-3 years back. It’s a pretty apt name for these Stuffed Red Dates which are basically steamed red dates stuffed with glutinous rice cake (or mochi). The middle is […]

Was doing my weekly grocery shopping at NTUC Fairprice and I came across this housebrand Sar Hor Fun (沙河粉) which I hadn’t cooked with before so I bought one packet to try out. This is different from the usual fresh ones that I buy from the market because this hor fun comes in dried form […]

Braised Chicken with Chestnuts Recipe

Hadn’t been able to blog as often as I wished to recently as I had been tied up with other work. Needed time to work on a BIG project too as Spring Tomorrow will be undergoing a major revamp! Well, I don’t have a specific date to roll out the new site yet as there […]
