Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside.

Fried XO Pork

“Use of air-fryer to roast the pork, before stir frying in wok to complete the dish.”

It was an impromptu idea to making of this dish. Just wanting to cook a dish tasted robust and yet able to feed my young boy as well. I thought it was easy to cook, and pleasant to taste.

Sounded deceptively complex, but in fact, the dish was easy and quick to assemble. I air fried the sliced meat to create some crispness to it before actually cooking in the wok. Air frying did help the seasoning sauce to fully absorb into the meat during the process. It also made the entire cooking less hassle with shortening of the wok-time.

Grilled Mixed Herbs Salmon & Tomatoes (Air-Fried)

Crisped and browned on the surface, but tender and moist inside. That’s how my grilled Salmon was. I usually cooked this way when I wanted to have pasta or noodles in sauce, or rice with other saucy dishes.

I wouldn’t serve as it is as a main course, if I did not make a sauce to go along, even though it wasn’t dried at all. I just thought it would be a bit plain.. unless to make some wet sides eg baked beans, gravies baby corns, mashed potato with sauce, etc. Salsa or cheesy spinach might be good, too. Those would do.. Alright, I should do the Western main course style the next time. :)

Cheesy Mashed Potato with Cream Sauce Gravy

“It’s a mashed potato well filled with gravy and delicious toppings.”

It looked like a mashed potato cake to me. It could be served as snack for tea, a side for dinner, and even a main for lunch. Homemade cheesy mashed potato is delicious.

I used the store-bought gravy pack which needed some assembly to be done. From Ikea food market. Yes, just to try out. It was tasty, indeed. (*Actual pic of the cream sauce pack was posted in my Instagram or FB page’s comment)

This recipe was created simply because I had leftover bacon and asparagus in my refrigerator. Hence, the making of mashed potato which I could think of at that point of time. So as to try the cream sauce, in this case.
