Alluring Claypot Chicken & Eggplant Stew (惹味茄子鸡煲)

“It might sound familiar to you, but this is my new dish.”

I was so excited when had the first taste of it as I was unsure how the taste would be, actually. This is an entirely new dish which I have created and cooked just last night, I considered it as a success by the fact that the entire dish including the gravy was entirely wiped up. Mum kept praising and describing to me how flavorful the dish was, and even gave me idea to adapt the same recipe for tofu stew. Not just them, I had extra rice to go with this dish, too. :)

As usual, this is simple and fuss free to cook. If you need a flavorful dish to whet your appetite, cook this. :) More

Salted Egg Yolk Prawns (黄金虾)

“How can you miss the ‘Laughter‘ during this festive season?! Eat ‘Ha‘ (Prawn in Cantonese), and let it smother you with laugther and most of all,… the wealth.”

One of my readers, was checking out salted egg yolk prawns recipe, and I couldn’t remember that I had actually posted the recipe since a while ago (laughing). Oh well, I did tell her about it, just few days back. And this time, I am going to post another version of salted egg yolk prawns, for the healthy you, and all, for this coming Lunar New Year, of course (smile)!

I’ve also create an auspicious dish name for this dish, in Chinese, 黄金炒虾. It simply means stir-fry prawns with ‘gold’. The name emphasizes on the ‘gold‘ this time. Chinese likes good and symbolical things or words relating to gold, wealth, happiness, laughter, good luck, and etc, during the festive. I hope you like the dish and its name. :)

Most importantly, with similar ingredients and steps from my previous recipe, it is never a chore to cook this for your reunion dinner and/ or gathering with friends and relatives. Yes, to the cook, it would not be a difficult dish to prepare. As to the diners, this dish should be great, too, as you do not have to peel the prawn shell during your meal. If that’s what you hate about eating prawns, they are all shelled in this recipe of mine! More

Sambal Prawns

“This Sambal prawn was cooked simply to enliven the taste of my Nasi Lemak dish.”

I cooked this to complement my Nais Lemak dinner the other day. Recipe was given and taught by my mum.

The sweet-spicy mouthwatering Sambal, the complementing prawns, the sweet crunchy onion… This simple to cook dish was perfectly delicious!

To cook this Sambal prawn dish perfectly delicious, who say I must use expensive fresh prawns… I insist on frozen ones because I have my secret tips to keep the texture of the prawns bouncy… Simple, keep the frozen prawns unthawed and added to cook direct, that’s it (smile)! What’s more.. Frozen prawns with express recipe allows you to prepare your meal quick and easy, even if it’s for an impromptu dinner! More

Sautéed Prawns in Yuzu Sauce (柚子蜜煎大虾)

“Not much an appetite to eat? I have cooked these juicy shrimps with some tantalizing citrus sauce to whet your appetite.”

This recipe I saw in a TVB cooking show (created by a popular HK celebrity) represents an interesting variation on the conventional sweet & sour flavor of the prawn dishes. This recipe incorporates the rich and refreshing marmalade, and good thing is, you probably need not to purposely buy this ingredient for the dish, it might already been seating in your drink pantry all these while… What this recipe add is the Honeyed Yuzu (called it Yuja in Korean) marmalade that uses to make drinks.

Having not much an appetite recently, I was tempted to this out! The inclusion of the citrus injects the right amount of sweet sourish zesty taste to complement the dish’s many savory and aromatic flavours. More

Finally had some time to update my site. I have still been cooking, despite busy and tiring schedule at work. However, I need to stretch a bit more of my time to share them with you here, after all the priorities like family, child, household chores come first. I know you can understand… (smile).

Simply Mini Cheesy Pork Cutlet

“Cheesy pork cutlet, Cheesy pork sandwich, or Cheesy fried pork chop, whatever you called it, this delicious savory ‘cheesy in pork’ dish would now be your child’s all-time-favourite. So as to you, big guys!”

I was so excited to introduce to you my latest dish, the mini cheesy sandwiched pork cutlet!

Yes, I did not make the standard sized pork chop, and instead, the bite-sizes. I wanted it to look cute. Most importantly, it was because I did it in a way that the pork chops were steamed beforehand. Just like my Japanese pork cutlet dish, it was easier to deep fry the crust to almost perfect golden by not worrying if the meat was cooked or not. Well, you may think this is an extra step which might not be necessary to you, do the ‘raw’ way may give you your better dish instead. It’s your comfort choice though.. More
