Golden Egg Fried Rice with Japanese Rice Toppings (黄金蛋炒饭)

“You are busy, and yet, yearning for delicious & heart warming meal.. here’s something you have to learn up, my simple quick fix rice meal. Not the lazy, but for the smart ones!”

I would say Japanese inventions are brilliant, including their contribution to creating flavorful yet simple food. When we learned to combine the delicious Chinese food with smart Japanese food, what we often get would be delicious smarty food! It’s just a saying, not limited to…. Lol.

Coming back to my golden fried rice, it’s not anything new to cook up this golden fried rice where each grain would be coated with the yellowish yolk to present a plateful of “golden” appearance dish. However, if you ask me, I wouldn’t be bored to add interesting elements to this wonderful goodness, and bring it to a whole new level of tasting. read more

Mango Sticky Rice

“Delicate dessert to be made at home. Who says you can only eat this in the Thai restaurant?”

When I had craving for food which normally served in the restaurant, I would always try my mean to cook it at home. Not so the economic reason sometimes, I enjoyed the satisfaction and achievement for being able to whip up food which looked deceptively difficult to assemble and overvalued by the market. It just made me feel contented to see my loved ones enjoy my creation more than having it outside. read more

Sausage & Cheese Baked Rice

“Baked rice with cheese from scratch.”

So happy to tell you that, my first attempt of baked rice was a success!

It was easy to assemble. What to do… I was a little too lazy to make anymore cheese food that requires many cooking steps, and hence, baked cheese rice has become my option, for tonight’s dinner.

Yes, it tasted delicious.

I find it very simple to cook, despite the fact of first attempt. This baked rice I’ve made from scratch, was using raw rice grain instead of the pre-cooked. It needs precise amount of water to be added to it in order to yield a perfect rice texture. Its baked rice cannot be too dry and hard to chew, or too soft and wet like porridge. read more

Hainanese Chicken Rice (海南鸡饭)

“Secret recipe from dad & mum!”

Hainanese chicken rice seems to be one of the most popular local food in Singapore. This is a Singaporean cuisine, of course. It is so well known that almost every visitor and tourist to Singapore would eat it at least once.

To me, I like to cook chicken rice meal at home, especially if I have guests to feed. This is one of the economical yet presentable cookings to impress them.

My cooking, considerably an heirloom recipe, was passed down from my parents. It’s one of their best dishes which they used to cook for business in the older days. And now, their recipe was adapted with mainly homecooked flavour, lessen the addition of MSG! Yes, for business purpose, many sellers add MSG to maximize the flavour of the dish, especially the rice. Without MSG, the rice would not be as tasty as it has to be. However, I have chicken granule and other condiments to back me up, making it tasty enough. read more
