Super Moist Stir-Fried Egg Prawns

“This is no ordinary fried eggs and prawns dish. This is a scrumptious stir-fried tendery prawns dish, complemented with juicy eggs! Simple, yet, special.”

This dish was ‘created’ by my friend’s friend who shared the recipe with me later on, some time back. But the original recipe was slight adapted from use of shell prawns to shelled ones, for convenience sake (laughing). Also, added with butter instead of using normal cooking oil as I find it more fragrant with butter cooking. read more

Non-Spicy Szechuan Soup (豆腐羮)


“It’s a non-spicy version of Szechuan ‘hot’ & sour soup for the children. It’s not hot.”

Szechuan Hot & Sour Soup, a tasty and fulfilling soup dish, likable by all of us. I thought I should cook without the chilli this time. The cooking method was almost the same, just differed by the addition of heat. My family liked both the spicy and non spicy versions.

Layer Cake (千层糕)

” Thousand Layer Cake which you can even make at home”

Layer cake is an expensive cake to purchase at bakery, especially at those renowned bakeries such as bengawan solo and etc. The layer-cake costs about $18 to $45. Actually the high price of this layer cake, not just for its taste, but also the effort of making such cake. It’s time consuming as it’s baked layer by layer.

I got the recipe from a magazine, and tried it!

The ingredients I used here are not something hard to obtain, method is simple, too. Just that, more time and attention will be needed to get it done. Perhaps I was lack of patience for first trial, my cake layers were much thicker than it supposed to be (sobbing)!! The layers were uneven, too. :( ~ But, but… the taste is good though (chuckling)! read 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! read more
