Stir Fried Char Siew Don Recipe

The char siew pork used for this recipe is super easy to make as it doesn’t involve any roasting of meat. Simply marinate thinly sliced pork (those pre-packed for shabu shabu will be ideal) and stir fry them in the pan which will only take a few minutes to cook. Of course, you can use […]

Penang Char Kway Teow Recipe

Char kway teow is basically stir fried flat rice noodles with typical ingredients like lup cheong (Chinese sausage), prawns, beansprouts, etc. The Penang-style char kway teow is similar to our local Hokkien-style char kway teow (click on the link for recipe) except no sweet soy sauce is used. As lup cheong releases oil when fried, […]

Egg Foo Young Recipe 芙蓉蛋

Egg Foo Young is a Chinese omelette with various ingredients in it which include vegetables, meat and/or seafood. It’s very versatile like a fried rice – you can basically add whatever you like into the egg. Many Western countries often serve Egg Foo Young with a sauce or gravy like this version. I used a […]

Braised Potatoes with Chicken Recipe

I drew inspiration from two dishes – the Tau Cheo Pork and Spiced Pork & Potato – and came up with this Braised Potatoes with Chicken Recipe that had a rich, robust flavour of good old fermented soy beans. The sauce was savoury and appetising. Definitely have to eat this with steamed rice. Yum. Braised […]

Black Sesame Pumpkin Mochi Bread Recipe

In my previous Baked Pumpkin Mochi Balls Recipe, I had substituted oil with extra pumpkin puree just to keep the treats lower in fat and calories which obviously wasn’t a great idea. So this time round, I remade the recipe with the addition of sunflower oil which not only gave the mochi bread a better […]

Turmeric Rice Recipe (served with Chicken Curry)

Turmeric is one of my favourite Asian spices. Not only it gives food a nice bright yellow colour, it also has a lot of medicinal benefits (can treat bloating, gas and upset stomach, etc) and anti-inflammatory properties. However, besides being used in curries, turmeric is not something that we would just eat on its own, […]

Stir Fried Satay Chicken Recipe

A simplified version of satay chicken without the extra hassle and work of skewering the meat and grilling them. Plus I would say this is a healthier recipe too because the skin and fats from the chicken have been trimmed and removed. Also, it’s not heavy-handed with sodium or seasonings as the different spices used […]

Hawaiian Pizza Recipe

I love using tortillas or chapatis as pizza bases. They are thin and hence crisp up in the oven really quick. That saves a lot of time – perfect when you need a quick supper fix at night. Normally, I prefer to make my own pizza sauce (click on the link for recipe) but on […]

Roasted Mushroom Stroganoff Recipe

I wanted to buy sour cream initially to make this Mushroom Stroganoff but couldn’t get any in time from the supermarket near me. While I could have gotten yogurt as a replacement, I thought I would try making the creamy sauce with silken tofu instead. It’s healthy and definitely lower in fat. In fact, I […]

Chicken Schnitzel Recipe

Happy New Year, everyone! 🙂 After all the countdown action last night, I think we deserve a good meal to refuel ourselves and kickstart a brand new day in a brand new year. How about a lip-smacking Chicken Schnitzel, eh? I actually used 1 big piece of chicken breast (instead of 2 as indicated in […]

Ondeh Ondeh Recipe (Glutinous Rice Balls)

Ondeh ondeh is one of my all-time favourite Nyonya desserts. It’s actually a boiled glutinous rice ball filled with molten gula melaka (coconut palm sugar) and coated with crunchy grated coconut. The hero of the dessert has got to be the gula melaka so buy the best type you can find. Geylang Serai market is […]

Banana with Chocolate and Cheese

This sweet treat recipe is inspired by the Banana Fritters with Chocolate & Cheese that’s sold at the pasar malam here in Singapore. The only difference is that there’s no deep frying involved for this recipe as I just want to keep this a little lighter and healthier which is also a great way to […]

Chapati Recipe (served with Curry Chicken)

I finally made my own chapatis (successfully)! Before this, I was still using those frozen chapatis from the supermarket for convenience. They were tasty but they contained preservatives which I didn’t really like. Actually it wasn’t really difficult to make chapatis from scratch. My first two attempts didn’t turn out well because I didn’t knead […]

Spiced Chicken Meatloaf Recipe

Made a fusion-style meatloaf using Asian spices. That ‘yellow’ colour came from the ground turmeric used which also imparted a lovely aroma to the meatloaf. After plating the dish up, I realised the colours were (unintentionally) that of traffic lights – red, green & yellow. Anyway, I chose to keep all the sides clean and […]
