Korean Army Stew | Budae Jjigae Recipe

Army stew is quite commonly found on the menus of most Korean restaurants in Singapore and is typically priced in the range of S$40-50 but the portion is often good enough to be shared by at least 4 persons. I would call this a Korean version of steamboat because it literally is a pot filled […]

Prawn Rolls Recipe (Faux Lobster Rolls)

This is what I call the Poor Man’s Lobster Roll, lol. Most of you are probably not unfamiliar with lobster rolls because they are one of the ‘in’ things to eat in Singapore. But the costs can be really expensive and you probably don’t even get a lot of lobster meat for what you pay. […]

Crispy Calamari with Gochujang Mayonnaise

I got the inspiration to make gochujang mayonnaise from Judy Joo’s “Korean Food Made Simple” on Food Network. And I thought that would be an excellent idea to boost the regular mayonnaise with an added punch of flavour. Fried food and mayonnaise always go hand in hand and since I had some squids in the […]

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 […]

Steamed Minced Chicken with Salted Fish Recipe

Inspired by my mother-in-law’s salted steamed minced pork, I thought I would do a leaner one with chicken and instead of using just salt, I added salted fish for a more robust flavour. In order to draw out the fragrance of salted fish, after I have soaked it in water and cut it into small […]

KFC Style Fried Chicken Recipe

I remembered coming across a copycat KFC fried chicken recipe while flipping through a recipe book at the library a while back. And sometime last year, I was watching this food programme on TV that gave an insight on how KFC made their O.R. chicken. There wasn’t any overnight marination and they merely dunked the chicken […]

Banana & Chocolate Chip Mochi Donuts Recipe

I would say this is an improved version of my earlier Baked Pumpkin Mochi Balls recipe. As highlighted before, it wouldn’t be a good idea to go fat free for this recipe by substituting the oil with apple puree, banana mash or the like because the exterior of the mochi would end up ‘uncooked’ so […]

Asparagus, Mushroom and Prawn Risotto Recipe (using the new Corningware Retroflam fry pan)

Last week, I had introduced the new Corningware Retroflam cookware to all of you and also gave my review after putting the Corningware Retroflam casserole pot to the test with a Rice Wine Chicken recipe. My experience of using the cookware was better than expected. To read more about it, click on The New Corningware […]

Baked Pumpkin Mochi Balls with Red Bean Paste (Gluten-Free)

I was introduced to gluten-free baking recently and thought I would do a mochi baking experiment with glutinous rice flour as I was curious to know how oven-baked mochi would turn out to be. In order to reduce calories for this dessert treat, I substituted oil with extra pumpkin puree to give it more moisture. […]

Dak Galbi Recipe | Chuncheon Chicken

Chuncheon, Korea is well known for its abundance of poultry farms. Hence it is not surprising that one of their most popular local food is the dak galbi which is a spicy stir-fried chicken dish with assorted vegetables (cabbage, onions, sweet potatoes, spring onions) and rice cakes. For my version, I added sweet potato vermicelli […]

Oyakodon Recipe (Chicken and Egg Rice Bowl)

Oyakodon is a Japanese dish in which chicken and egg are simmered together in a sauce and then served over rice. For my version, I used boneless chicken leg which I roasted in the oven to give it a crispy, golden brown crust and I served it with brown rice as a low-GI option. A […]

Braised Chicken and Macaroni in Tomato Sauce

This is a quick-fix pasta meal that is perfect for a weekday dinner. It mainly uses ingredients and seasonings that you probably already have in your fridge and/or pantry. I served the braised chicken with macaroni but you can use any pasta of your choice or with crusty bread if you like. Braised Chicken and […]

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 […]

Salted Egg Chicken and Buttermilk Waffle Recipe

I bought this new Eupa brand of waffle iron from South Korea off Qoo10 recently. Very happy with my purchase because my previous waffle iron was just rubbish – supposed to be non-stick and even though I still greased it with oil or butter, my waffle still stuck to both the top and bottom and […]

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 […]
