Easy Ham Fried Rice Recipe 火腿炒饭

Inspired by the Western Fried Rice from West Grill Station that had me coming back 3 times in 2 weeks. It was just a very humble dish of ham fried rice to be honest but the outlet in my neighbourhood did it so well, I could taste wok hei in every mouthful of the fried […]

Rice Payasam | Kheer Recipe

I remembered the first time I tried kheer (term used in North India) or payasam (South India) at an Indian restaurant, I fell in love with the rice pudding that was sweet, creamy and milky with a lovely cardamom flavour and rose water fragrance. It was made with full fat milk and basmati rice and […]

Seafood Brown Rice Risotto Recipe

To make this recipe, you would need a flavoursome seafood stock. Luckily I had kept prawn heads/shells and fish heads/bones (can also get from NTUC Fairprice) in the freezer so what I did was to fry these odds and ends with some sunflower oil till cooked and fragrant and then added leftover vegetable broth. I […]

Fan Choy Recipe

Fan Choy (饭菜 in Cantonese) is what I call the ‘dim sum version’ of the char siew rice which is affordably priced (small portion though) and readily available at those stalls selling dim sum and steamed buns at hawker centres or coffeeshops. For my recipe, I chose to use brown rice (it’s healthier than white!) […]

Baked Brown Rice with Chicken, Mushrooms and Cheese

Casseroles or one dish meals make excellent weekday dinners. And honestly, this baked rice is so versatile, you can just use any ingredients you like especially if you have plenty of leftovers from your recent CNY feast or steamboat to use up – meatballs, bacon, ham, luncheon meat, sausages, bell peppers, broccoli, etc. Also, you […]

Tabyeet (Iraqi Style Slow-cooked Chicken with Rice)

Since I bought a new slow cooker a while ago (can’t believe I took this long as it’s such a handy appliance to have!!), I’ve been experimenting with new recipes such as this one-pot rice dish which is like the Middle Eastern version of a chicken dum biryani. What I really like about it is its exotic flavours […]

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 […]

Take Each Day One Step at a Time and a Smoked Duck Fried Rice Recipe

I thought by preparing for the worst in my health situation, it would probably lessen the impact should any bad news come my way. I had really tried looking at the brighter side of things and wished that the big lump on my neck was probably just an infection of the thyroid gland and that […]

Cabbage and Pumpkin Rice Recipe

As we all know, rice is a staple in Chinese cuisine. While I don’t think rice tastes good on its own because it’s just plain and bland, it does pair beautifully with dishes that come with rich, savoury gravies or sauces. Also I like its versatility when it comes to cooking because there are endless […]

Hakka Lei Cha / Thunder Tea Rice Recipe

Woohoo! I finally made my own thunder tea rice! Lol. I’m a big fan of this signature Hakka rice dish because it has so many different types of vegetables in it. High fibre – yeah – but it’s that mix of textures, variety and wholesomeness that keep me coming back for it. For those who are […]

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 […]

Chicken & Vegetables Medley Fried Rice Recipe

I had to go A&E on Tuesday when I had really bad nausea that made me vomit the whole day till I suffered from severe dehydration. Nearly passed out at the hospital so I had to be put on drip. Not an exciting week for me indeed. Been having flu symptoms for 1.5 months but never did […]

Rice Cooker Chicken Claypot Rice Recipe

I have blogged about my favourite claypot rice before which is one of the many local foods in Singapore that I adore. For this home-made version, I did not use a traditional claypot. As such, the best bits of burnt rice will not be present in this version but the flavour infiltrating every grain of rice […]
