Prawn Noodle Soup (虾面汤)

“Homemade Prawn Noodle Soup that you can’t resist”

1 dish meal is always the easiest cooking as weekday dinner. It could be prepared in 1 hour time, less dishes to wash after meal, and All-in-One balance diet.

I brought medium-sized prawns from the market on Sunday morning (since I do not have time to go market on Monday morning). Prawns have to be fresh since the whole prawn including shell will be used. I kept it in the freezer overnight, and took it out and stored at the defrost compartment this morning. All other ingredients were also in the refrigerator. read more

Low Fat Singapore Laksa

“Instant made ‘low fat’ Laksa with abundance of sides to go along!”

I wanted to cook up a quick meal, Laksa seemed like a good choice.

Since I usually did not have much time to cook extensively after work, I used readily packed laksa paste which commonly available in any supermarket (about $1.70 and $2.50 per packet). Guilty as charged, with no excuse, but I truly thought it does come in handy and eases my cooking, at times. :)) read more
