Nyonya Fish Curry Recipe

Since my last visit to Ocean Curry Fish Head for its Nyonya-style fish head curry, I had been missing that sour and spicy gravy that was deliciously moreish. Do you know Nyonya-style fish curry is made from assam or tamarind (that’s why it’s tangy) and that there is no addition of coconut milk? It’s what […]

Saba Shioyaki Recipe (Salt Grilled Mackerel)

This is one of my favourite fish recipes because saba (mackerel) fillets are rich in omega-3 fatty acids/oil and are so easy to cook as I can just pop them in the oven without having to worry they might dry up or that they will stink up my kitchen (or my entire house), lol. Alternatively, […]

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ […]

Chicken, Sausage and Bean Stew Recipe

I hope those of you residing in Singapore are keeping well and healthy. My sinuses are acting up like crazy, thanks to the haze that seems to be getting worse again todayย ? I’m trying to refrain from eating heaty stuffs cos’ my throat is just so uncomfortable these days so I’m mainly craving for simple […]

Chinese Braised Chicken Recipe

A Chinese braised dish is what I call the epitome of traditional Teochew home cooking. It’s like one of the classics that every Teochew family would know how to make. If you’ve been following my blog since its early days, you’d notice the first recipe I shared was a Tau Yu Bak Recipe (Braised Pork […]

Mee Rebus Recipe

Mee rebus is a noodle dish that’s made of thick yellow noodles in a spicy sweet curry-like gravy and it’s very popular in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia. It was a dish that I enjoyed since I was little and it only cost S$0.50 for a plate back in my primary school days in the 80s. […]

Steamed Scallops Recipe (with glass noodles)

I love these big and juicy Fukuyama Frozen Hokkaido Scallops which I got from Fairprice. Each piece is just sweet, meaty and succulent. I don’t like the idea of over-processing scallops and I feel the best way to cook them is to keep it as simple as possible. One method is to steam them and […]

Teriyaki Salmon Pizza Recipe

I had shared my love for thin-crusted pizzas in my earlier tortilla pizza recipe post. And this time I thought I would try something different by using chapati as my pizza base. Ok I must admit, I’m so into the chapati these days that it’s probably going to replace my regular tortilla ultimately, lol. I […]

Teochew Style Yam Rice Recipe

The last time I had yam rice was at my mum’s when she ‘anyhow’ made up one without a specific recipe in mind. That was just one of the very few occasions I would have dinner at her home since I got married because when she did cook, she didn’t seem to know how to […]

Pulled Chicken Wrap Recipe

This is a poultry version of my Pulled Pork Recipe. I had made some adjustments to the sauce by using fresh tomatoes instead of canned ones and also added water to give it more moisture. And for a refreshing change, I decided to use store-bought frozen chapati as a wrap instead of the regular tortilla […]

Bento Box Idea #4: Korean Chicken Bulgogi Bento

I shared my Korean Chicken Bulgogi Recipe a few weeks back when I made my first bento. This time round, I’ve cooked the same but have added two ‘more exciting’ side dishes as accompaniments. And it has been fun playing around with the presentation and plating of the meal because I’ve been stocking up on […]

Spicy Chicken Apple Sausage Recipe

Been about 3 weeks now and I think my post-op recovery is going well so far. The swell (sometimes causes slight breathing difficulty but not a big deal) and pain are still there but I can easily move around and get out of the house now. Haven’t been doing any cooking so far (can’t lift […]

Bento Box Idea #3: Pan Fried Salmon Bento

Bento-making is my newfound hobby. Somehow it can get really addictive and I really wonder why, lol. Perhaps it’s about the challenge of trying to fit ingredients within a confined lunchbox space. But what I really like about it is the thought I’d put into each bento before deciding what to cook so every bento […]

Yogurt Potato Salad Recipe

A mayo-loaded (sometimes with Dijon mustard too) potato salad can be so hard to resist at times. It’s like one of my all-time favourite comfort foods and a must-order side dish when I’m having Western fare outside. While I do indulge in the same at home occasionally especially when I have a big bottle of […]

Chicken Udon Noodle Soup Recipe

If I’m not specifically making chicken stock to store in the freezer, I like to cook a bigger pot of chicken soup (ABC, chicken-radish and the like) so that I can keep the extra soup for another meal the next day – really saves time and effort! I don’t really like using store-bought stocks because […]

Yaki Udon Recipe (Vegetarian)

In about 7 hours’ time, I would be wheeled off to the operation theatre. Waiting for Operation Day for the past one week had been stressful though I tried my best to stay calm and positive. Needless to say, I was awake the whole of last night because it finally dawned on me that I […]
