One Dish Meals

Creamy Curry Pork 6-Grain Wrap

“Delicious and wholesome lunch with healthy multi-grain wrap.”

Wrap meals often remind me of Mexico food, but I would prefer having the wrap with an Asian flavor closer to my palate at times, if I were to make one at home. For this reason, I chose to make my wrap in my Asian inspired recipe. Yes, with curry, pork… Already having my dry curry pork recipe which cooked to more an Indian cuisine (See recipe here), the curry pork cooking has now been simplified, for the wrap creation. Call it Asian-fusion recipe here, it’s mixed to a western flavor, instead.:)

Teow Chew Style Fish Head Steamboat (潮州鱼头炉)

“Cook whatever you like even the famous local delicacies you have been enjoying only dining out!”

Hubby was craving for 鱼头炉 (“Yu Tou Lu” popular local Chinese soup dish, fish head pot), but we weren’t out to our favorite stalls for this. He was not feeling too well to go out for dinner after work.

Not to disappoint him, I was happy to cook it at home. Taste was 80% alike outside stalls, as my soup wasn’t as ‘sweet’ as those since no msg added, but homemade pot had the most abundance of ingredients. That’s we called homemade…

Air-Fried Garlic Prawn Pasta

“You don’t need to pay restaurant price to get your no-frills ‘restaurant’ pasta”

In order to assemble quick and hassle free dinner, as I had to do up my rum raisin chocolate lava cake for supper, at the same time, I decided to air-fry a pasta dish.

Of course, you may cook this recipe as my usual ‘wok’ way, I just wished to save up the stirring and monitoring time in the cooking process so that I could fix up a supper dessert concurrently. Air-frying my pasta without the need of stir frying and watching out process, I was able to assemble our dinner within 15 minutes, and accomplished the two courses, from preparing to serving, both pasta and lava cake, within a total of 25 minutes.

Vegetarian Burger Patty with Pineapple Teriyaki Sauce

“It’s easier to make this vegetarian burger meal than you think it would be. It’s yummy and healthy.”

Seriously. This is the best way to ‘trick’ one that does not eat beans, carrot, celery, and mushrooms. For one who does not like oats, or has to take oats for his/ her purpose, yet would wish to explore a new way to take the oats other than making the viral-recipe, Overnight Oats, this is a great food for ya.

For the non-initiated, I was referring to our vegetarian Western burger meal with my veggie patty and pineapple teriyaki sauce posted up on my FB wall last evening. Yes, you are right. The veggie patty made consists of all the above mentioned, and more..

Spaghetti Carbonara Quick-Fix

“Hassle-free quick lunch idea”

This is another quick-fix. No-frills. It’s not that I don’t make my own cream sauce (homemade creamy white sauce recipe), but I thought some of you were too busy making everything from scratch, yet wanting to have delicious quick fixed home meal.

Yes. Almost instantly, but don’t compromise on the taste with just an instant product. Get an instant solution instead. It was remarkably fast to prepare.

Yes. Lunch will be served in 30 minutes!
