Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe with Lychees

“Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la, la la la la. China lychees are here finally, Fa la la la la, la la la la.” Ok I’m not celebrating any festive season, lol but I’m just thrilled that my favourite fruit is in season again. Lychee is such a wonderful tropical fruit […]

Spring Onion Pancake Recipe (with my home-grown spring onions)

Watching my tomato and chilli seeds sprouting and growing up everyday for the last few months has been quite phenomenal because it just feels like I’m bringing up little kids, haha. Due to the inadequate conditions of my make-do ‘concrete gardening plot’ at the lift lobby outside my apartment, my tomato and chilli seem to […]

Crispy Fried Wonton Recipe

There’s nothing better than having a cheat day to emotionally satisfy our craving which is something that the husband and I always look forward to. So what’s cooking up today? Crispy and crunchy, deep-fried wontons! This recipe is similar to my soupy wonton recipe except that I have used pork instead of chicken and more prawns […]

Crispy Roast Pork Recipe 脆皮烧肉

Ever since I started making my own roast pork at home, I no longer buy or eat those from roast meat stalls. Sometimes, the outside ones might have a higher ratio of fat to meat, could be too salty or cold and soggy because it was left hanging out for too long. Like freshly baked […]

Seafood Prosperity Pot Recipe

Today I’m sharing a Seafood Prosperity Pot Recipe which is my rendition of a 海鲜一品锅 that you could get from most tze char stalls in Singapore. This is a dish that’s favoured by my folks because there are so many ingredients in it especially vegetables and is overall, healthy and non-greasy. Seafood Prosperity Pot Recipe Ingredients […]

Fermented Beancurd Chicken with Lotus Root Recipe

Besides being an excellent condiment with plain rice congee, fermented beancurd is also one of my favourite cooking ingredients. It is what I call the Chinese version of cheese as it has this salty and mildly sweet flavour (from the pickling liquid) that really makes food taste more robust and appetising. I had made a […]

Coca-Cola Chicken Recipe

I love coke! I love it when I was little and I still love it now though I haven’t had it for a long time due to diet restrictions. And it is just amazing how coke makes a great sauce for meats. I have cooked Coca Cola Pork Ribs before but I think chicken is […]

Seafood Rice Recipe

The look of this dish is a little similar to our local Seafood Mui Fan (海鲜烩饭 or rice with seafood & gravy) that we can get from zi char stalls here. But in terms of ingredients, this dish is somewhat unique as I’ve used crunchy bamboo shoots and black fungus. Taste wise, it also has […]

Pork Shoulder with Salted Fish, Lotus Root and Braised Peanuts Recipe

Normally when we have Teochew porridge, we would eat plain rice congee with a variety of savoury dishes like fried salted fish, braised peanuts, salted vegetables, taucheo (fermented soy bean) pork – all served separately. This recipe is like a 3-in-1 dish that combines pork, braised peanuts and salted fish. It might seem like an […]

Stir Fried Pork with Crispy Yam Recipe

I bought a few lovely yams from the supermarket and ended up making a yam feast of claypot seafood with yam, yam rice, yam paste dessert and this, lol. I liked the texture and flavour of the crispy yam sticks that really reminded me of the potato sticks snack that I used to eat when […]

Stuffed Tofu Puffs Recipe

I like to buy the stuffed tofu puffs from my neighbourhood wet market which are freshly made everyday and I’d cook them like how I would a soupy yong tau foo. In every puff, there would always be crunchy bits of prawns besides the well seasoned minced pork. This time, I decided to make them […]

Salted Vegetable Duck Soup Recipe 咸菜鸭汤

I first fell in love with kiam chye ark (salted vegetable duck soup) when I had this really amazing one at Hup Seng Duck Rice @ Sin Ming Road that was peppery, flavoursome but not overly salty at all. It was one that warmed the tummy and just tasted comforting. I did my own version without […]

Stewed Pork Chops with Bitter Gourd Recipe

I really couldn’t recall where and when I had a similar dish like this before. Perhaps at some Teochew porridge stall or maybe Gramp had made it when I was little as he was so fond of the canned stewed pork chops then. All I remembered was that the dish was really savoury and tasty […]

Shovelnose Ray in Black Bean Sauce Recipe

I was looking for the regular stringray at the supermarket as I wanted to make BBQ Sambal Stingray but I ended up with a meaty slab of shovelnose ray instead, lol. What a find, as I don’t normally see it that often. It resembled shark meat which I had tried cooking with before so I […]

Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng Recipe for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year has been a quiet one for me last week so I’m quite relieved that today is already 初五 (5th day of CNY). Though I started the day at the doctor’s getting my X-ray done for a knee & foot injury, I’m happy to see that most shops if not all have resumed […]
