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

Black Pepper Prawns

“A variation of my Black Pepper Pork Dish. The seafood version, this time.”

The Black Pepper prawn is the best option, if you have craving for shellfish instead. And, this recipe takes full advantage of having the flavor packed in the prawns, along with the natural aromatics such as capsicum and onion to infuse the base for refreshing and fragrant sauce with the natural sweetness.

Its peppery taste wasn’t too overwhelming. Not too spicy, the dish wasn’t too wet, too. More

Black Pepper Tender Pork Slices with Curry Leaves

“Signature Black Pepper Pork. I’ve it cooked with curry leaves, for more exotic flavour. Trust me, you’ll like me.. Oops.. Like it, I meant…”

This recipe has become one of my signature dishes.

I did not create this dish. It was tasted in a restaurant and found it really delicious. By examining the ingredients used in their dish, I was confident that I would be able to adapt and fix up the dish at home on my own. And, it had been a success in making the similar dish! More

Cereal Prawns (麦片虾)

“Cooking is about versatility. Save your bucks, cook this scrumptious cereal prawn dish with 3-in-1 cereal sachets which already are available in your kitchen or drinks pantry!”

Learn how to cook cereal prawns is definitely a plus point to save your bucks as having cereal prawns at the restaurants could cost you at least S$30 for the dish. However, if you cook this at home, it will simply shack off a $10 note from your wallet for the ingredients. Moreover, it’s easy to cook, and delicious to eat!

There are many ways to cook cereal prawns. With or without eggs, with or without creamer, with premix or original plain cereal.. I used what I’ve gotten in my kitchen cabinet, the usual cereal drink comes in 3-in-1 sachets which I bought to make drink for the family in the mornings. Yeah, unless what you have is the original cereal in tin packaging, just mix your own non-dairy creamer and sugar moderately. Otherwise, use those you already have in your drinks pantry! Yes, I have 3-in-1 sachets (I bought NesVita 3in1 Low Fat cereal drink by Nestlé brand). More

Fragrant Dry Curry Belacan Clams (甘香炒蚬)

“Fragrant Clams with unpredictable taste of Asian cuisine!”

You probably did not come across this dish. You probably did. Ate it somewhere, just could not recall the dish name.

Well, I am going to introduce this dish, the home cooked version.

Appearance of the dish might look quite common, but, its taste is unpredictably pleasant. More

Curry Clams (咖喱蝲蝲)

“Quick Clams Recipe and Delicious Clams Dish in Curry Flavour!”

Yes, I cooked clams again.

Slightly different kind of clam. The shell is thicker, rounder in shape and darker in colour. This kind of clam is more common in Singapore. This thicker shelled clam is similar to the thinner one I used in my previous post (Chili & Tomato Sauces Clams recipe here), but I find the flesh of this clam is fuller and more juicy. More
