Fresh Prawn Dumpling (鲜虾水饺)

“Make happy dumpling with your happy children at home!”

I like to make either wanton or dumpling as one of the soup dishes for dinner. Filled with meat and prawn in each dumpling. Usually, I make the dumpling for the family by my own. Or, I should say by mum, instead. I was there to help out.

We made this dumpling dish together, with mum. First, place 1 spoon of meat mixture in the centre of the dumpling skin. Add 1 prawn, and wet finger tips with some water and wipe around the edge of the skin. More

Omelette with Chopped Onion

“Omelette – the best dish that complements your plain porridge meal”

Onion, may seems to taste ‘awful’ to many people, especially to kids. Raw onion has pungent taste and smell to many of us. I don’t quite like to eat raw onion unless I can eat it with satay sauce (laughing). However, cooked onion is totally different spectrum here. Cooked onion, not just without its natural pungency, it tastes so pleasant with its natural sweetness. Cooked onion is soft, and very nice to eat. Since it is sweet, it should be kid-friendly dish. Children hate onion, but love sweet food. Cooked onion in omelette ill be the BEST way to make them eat some onion! More
