Sautéed Potatoes with Italian Herbs

Flavourful sautéed potatoes made at home

One of the sides I have prepared was this potato dish. I tasted a similar dish in a gathering at one of our buddies’ house some time back. This friend of ours is good at cooking Western cuisine, and he cooked this dish for us to pair with our wine drinking.

This dish looked appealing and elegant when first served, and I thought it was good to serve for an occasion, too. Taste of it was, of course, flavourful and aromatic (smile).

I chose to sauté than roasting the potatoes to create crisped surface (with soft consistency inside). And, there was another reason for sauté as I can ‘save‘ some work on making the meal. See, instead of needing to take care of the oven altogether, I could use only the pan frying method for both the potatoes and chicken chop! Just added a little more olive oil when came to the chicken chops. Yeah, it helps to save a little here (winking smile). read more

A1 Curry Chicken (Express Recipe)

“Impress your guests with this quick and easy curry chicken and egg goodies during your open house or friends’ visit!”

Curry chicken is a common spicy Indian cuisine across Asia countries. Asian loves spicy food, and Singaporean is always so fascinated by this fabulous curry dish. We have our own version of curry chicken, whereby its gravy is more ‘watery’. Indeed, we like to drench the bread, especially french loaf, into curry sauce, eating the loaf with curry dipping as a meal just by its own. Having more gravy in the curry chicken dish, we can even pour the curry sauce onto a plate of fried bee hoon (rice noodles) or fried rice to complement the dryness of the fried bee hoon/ rice. read more

You do have impression that potato-related food is generally a ‘fattening’ food, don’t you? Would you believe if I tell you only potato is considered as, but not the sweet potatoes? Yes, not all kinds are. Sweet potatoes are not a fattening food. In fact, both potato and sweet potato are NOT high in calorie. The difference is, potatoes contain higher GI (= 56 – 65) (which somehow related to ‘fattening’), while sweet potatoes are relatively low GI (= 48 – 54) food.
