Ayam Masak Merah Recipe (Spicy Tomato Chicken)

When I was working as a teacher at a student care centre during my university days, I got to know Makcik (auntie) G who was working there as a cook. I remembered how outstanding her nasi ayam (chicken rice) and nasi lemak (coconut milk rice) were – definitely some of the best I had ever […]

How to Make a Mason Jar Salad

I started making salads in jars since last year after coming across lovely pictures of mason jar salad on social media. It’s such a great way to prep your meal in advance especially if you’re trying to eat more healthy by bringing lunches to work. Just need to get ready the ingredients the day before, […]

Cold Crab Pasta Salad Recipe – Using onion raita as salad dressing

This Crab Pasta Salad Recipe was inspired by the Onion Raita I made earlier. Like what I’ve mentioned in my previous post, the raita is a very flexible side dish which you can eat with biryani or use it as a salad dressing like what I’ve done here. Normally when we buy Greek yogurt from […]

Onion Raita Recipe – A healthy and delicious condiment

Raita is a common side dish that’s typically served with biryani in Indian cuisine. It’s an unassuming side dish made with either vegetables, pulses or fruits and then mixed with yogurt before seasoning it. I’ve not really paid a lot of attention to the raita previously because I don’t eat it often enough. But I […]

Pork Rib Prawn Noodle Recipe 排骨虾面

Was in the Novena area recently as I was craving for my favourite Pork Rib Prawn Noodle from Whitley Road Big Prawn Mee. I love it because the soup is always so robust-tasting and flavoursome. And they also serve up a delicious assortment of fried ngoh hiang which you can pair with your noodles. Yum. That […]

Tea Rice Recipe (inspired by the Japanese ochazuke)

This Tea Rice Recipe is inspired by the Japanese Tea Rice (or ochazuke) that I had at NTUC Foodfare @ Khoo Teck Puat Hospital some time back. It’s a soupy, hearty and comforting meal which is something that I like to have every now and then. Needless to say, it is extremely healthy too especially when […]

Sesame Beef Noodles Recipe

My energy level has been really low in recent weeks. It’s just this feeling of malaise and fatigue that refuses to go away. And it doesn’t help that I keep wanting to fall asleep in the day and yet I’m still not able to sleep properly at night. Also, there have been frequent bouts of […]

Green Mango Salad Recipe

Bought some green mangoes from the Thai Supermarket @ Golden Mile Complex (S$6.50/kg) and made this green mango salad. It’s really very easy to make this because the dressing is just a simple concoction of fish sauce, sugar and lime juice. The key is to strike a balance between the ingredients as the dressing is […]

Oven-Baked Peanut Chicken Recipe

No, it’s not a plate of muah chee though it really looks like it, lol. I’ve made peanut chicken nuggets for movie snack this time. I always have coarsely ground roasted peanuts in my pantry as it’s an ingredient that I use pretty often when I make muah chee and glutinous rice dumplings. Sometimes, I’ll […]

Tomato Chicken Stew with Quinoa and Chickpeas

This dish is like chicken braised in a minestrone-like soup. It’s tangy, sweet and fresh which really refreshes the palate. I served it with a simple and healthy quinoa which you can pair separately or alternatively, add them into the stew itself for a wholesome one pot meal. Tomato Chicken Stew with Quinoa and Chickpeas […]

Tarragon Chicken Burger Recipe

Burgers aren’t always bad and high in calories, especially not when you make your own. I used to eat a lot of fast food before I started cooking (once or twice every weekend – yeah I know, my diet was just so sinfully unhealthy!) and that was why my waistline kept expanding. Now that I’ve […]

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 […]

Cauliflower & Potato Puree with Mushrooms Recipe

While I’m not exactly on a diet, I do like to seek out food alternatives that are healthier and/or have lower calories than their regular counterparts. One good example is opting for mashed cauliflower (check out my recipe here) rather than mashed potato because the former contains only 1/3 of the calories of potato (100g […]
