Sugar Cane Fish Meat Drumsticks

“An absolute kid-pleaser dish.. Fun to see, nice to eat!”

Having trouble getting your kids (or the big kid) to eat more fish?
Cook this to make the fish dish more fun. A way to disguise the fish meat in a fun-looking drumstick-like appearance, the kids will be more than willing to pick up one to try. Yes, it works!

This sugar cane fish meat drumstick tasted very delicate with an aroma of egg coated on the surface of the fish drumstick. I liked the tenderness in the fish meat, too. More

Crispy Cornflake Prawn Fritters

“Creates the real flavour out of its simplicity”

Using cornflakes to coat prawn fritters makes the dish special and imaginably delicious. The cornflakes crust created a much more crispy texture and aromatic flavor in the palate than the flour or bread crumbs coating.

I learned this delicious cornflake prawn fritters dish from an adaption of recipe in a small fast food recipe book complimentary with the purchase of a lifestyle magazine. More

How your cooking and dishes would help in your kid’s studies? Nothing about supplementary food or valuable nutrients in the food you cooked, it’s purely a personal belief, or called it a superstition in our family…

Glutinous Rice Balls (Tang Yuan) and Sweet Potatoes Dessert Soup (冬至送甜蜜)

“Happy Dongzhi, with hearty Tang Yuan, for a Treat of Sweetness”

Tomorrow is Tuesday (22nd Dec), it’s also the Chinese Dōngzhì Festival (冬至), or you called it in more proper English term as Winter Solstice Festival. This festival is important to most Chinese, as it represents the growth of another year of wisdom with bountiful harvest.

Last year, we made our own rice balls and cooked it into dessert soup dish for the festive. And this year, I am not going to make my own rice balls, but to get the readily types of rice balls in the market. In fact, these kinds of convenient packs are available to most major supermarkets in Singapore all-year-long. You can simply buy and cook it anytime you want. Well, this is the Chinese ritual to have rice balls (pronouced as: Tang Yuan, 汤圆) in Dongzhi Festival, not just celebarating the growth, but to also symbolise the reunion of family (团圆) and the round shaped rice balls refers to the hope of having a perfect result in anything we do (圆满).
