Salted Fish Fried Rice Recipe 咸鱼炒饭

Fried rice has always been one of my specialty dishes as it was the first dish that my late Granny taught me how to make when I was a little kid. That’s probably why this easy-to-make rice dish always tastes so special to me – it’s a familiar taste of home, love and joy. I’m […]

Chicken Meatball and Cucumber Soup Recipe

A simple, comforting soup dish which you can easily make if you always have homemade chicken broth ready in the freezer or fridge. If no, you can always make one by dissolving 2 chicken stock cubes in 1 litre of hot water. Meatballs wise, I chose to use lean minced chicken to keep this lower […]

Kung Pao Lotus Root Recipe (Vegetarian)

Kung Pao dishes need no further introduction. They are so common and easily available at Chinese takeaways and restaurants. I have shared two Kung Pao recipes previously: Kung Pao Chicken Kung Pao Tofu (vegetarian) And this time, I’ve made another vegetarian version with lotus root and other vegetables. The crunch of the vegetables and cashew […]

Sweet and Sour Salmon Recipe

This is what I call the fish version of a 咕噜肉 (‘gu lou yok’ or Cantonese-style sweet & sour pork) and I’m sure this Sweet and Sour Salmon Recipe will be much healthier (with lots of omega-3 fatty acids too) than its deep-fried fatty pork counterpart. As salmon itself is very oily, there is no […]

Ma La Xiang Guo Recipe 麻辣香锅

When I first tried Ri Ri Hong Ma La Xiang Guo (日日红麻辣香锅) at People’s Park Food Centre a long while back, I was blown away by that incredibly numbing and spicy flavour of that big bowl that was filled with all my favourite ingredients. Everything went so well with rice. It was like having a […]

Oven-Baked Fermented Bean Curd Chicken Recipe

“I was running around the hospital frantically. Desperately opening the door to every room along the way. No, it wasn’t her. Where was she? Then I met him and asked him which room Granny was in. He said ’43’. I ran all the way towards the end of the corridor and found room 43. When […]

Stir Fried Rice Cake Recipe

Do you sometimes crave for certain food after watching TV especially food or cooking programmes? I made chicken and waffles the other day because I had a huge craving for fried chicken and crispy waffles after watching an episode of Junk Food Flip on Food Network. And after watching a Korean drama on Channel U […]

Crab Fried Rice Recipe

I got the idea of using crabmeat in fried rice after my mum commented that she made a crab fried rice the other day which was delicious. And so I went to the supermarket and bought a pack of cooked crabmeat (from the chilled fresh fish section). Though there weren’t much ingredients in this fried […]

Honey Lemon Pepper & Pork Stir Fry Recipe

A few days ago, I posted a Honey Lemon Chicken Recipe. Today, I’m sharing a quick and easy Chinese stir fry recipe in which I’ve also incorporated honey and lemon. This dish tastes sweet and tangy with a little heat from fresh red chillies. You can substitute the pork with either chicken or fish because […]

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 […]

Kung Pao Tofu Recipe (Vegetarian)

Kung Pao Chicken. Kung Pao Pork. Kung Pao Prawns. I just love ’em all. I think the kung pao sauce is simply one of the best in Chinese cuisine, imo. It’s spicy, sweet, savoury and nutty – sure to reignite the tastebuds and leave us wanting more. I decided to try something new this time. […]

Minced Chicken with Salted Mustard and Tomatoes

There’s no better time than now to have simple porridge fare with a dish like this cos’ most of us would probably be feasting to our tummies’ content from next weekend onwards as it’s going to be the Lunar New Year! I don’t really eat salted or pickled vegetables that much because of their high […]

Steamed Eggplant Recipe (with Garlic Sauce)

Since I had my thyroid surgery, my doctor had strongly discouraged me from eating cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower because he said these were the vegetables that could promote ‘growth’ and because I still have a few small cysts on my right thyroid that’s still intact, I’m at risk for future complication should any of the […]

Seafood Bee Hoon Recipe

Or should I call it Japchae-style seafood noodles? I drew inspiration from Japchae (a Korean stir-fry dish of sweet potato noodles or ‘dangmyeon’ and vegetables) and combined it with rice vermicelli (‘bee hoon’) to create this wet seafood bee hoon. It’s my rendition of the famous Sembawang white bee hoon with a Korean touch 😉 […]

Zha Jiang Mian Recipe

Literally translated as ‘fried sauce noodles’, zha jiang mian (炸酱面) is a Chinese wheat noodle dish with a chunky salty-sweet meat sauce that is made from fermented soy bean paste. It is what I call the Chinese version of Spaghetti Bolognese. The classic zha jiang mian normally uses minced pork in the sauce but I […]
