Jackfruit Preserve with Just one Ingredient

It’s not hard to guess which ingredient we’re going to be using in this recipe. But before we’re getting into that, I just want to tell you about a place we visited on our recent trip to Kerala, Alnas Jackfruit Restaurant in the town of Manjeri in Malappuram District in Kerala. Sadik discovered it in

Pink Milk

Have you ever seen Pink Milk? The gorgeous pastel pink beverage served with lots of ice in plastic cups is not just cute but so delightfully sweet and refreshing. Summer is when you witness them bloom on the streets and in the markets of Thailand like real flowers. Pink Milk is called Nom Yen. Nom means

Vegan Kimchi

I remember the first time I tried Korean food at a mall near my apartment in Bangkok. It was also the first time I tried Kimchi. And to be honest, I couldn’t decide if I like it. I immediately thought that it was like ‘Som Pak’, a pickled cabbage and green onion dish which we

How to make Thai Ice Milk Tea

Even though I have posted this recipe before, I have a strong urge to tell you about this Thai Ice Milk Tea again. Maybe it’s because of the weather. The cold breezes parade into our house when we open a door to a balcony in the morning. I love the fresh air of the dawn

Stir Fried Squid with Yellow Curry Powder

We have been very careful about purchasing seafood since an incident last year. I have to say that it has been hard because the fresh quality supplies don’t come around very easily where we live. But that’s something we have to live with, and it gets us scared to think what will happen to food

Thai Fresh Lychee Juice

My favorite season has finally arrived at our door. The air is fresh and cold. Yaseen packs a raincoat in his school bag. When it rains, I immediately want to make some tea, but well, I can’t do that just yet because we’re still fasting in the month of Ramadan here. Well, that will be

Food from the Morgues

When I ate that piece of fish, it took me to the very spot where dead bodies and chemicals resided. And I was certain that the fish that I’d just eaten had formalin in it. Sunday is chaotic in my kitchen when fresh ingredients and new groceries are weekly stocked. It’s also a perfect time to

Thai Shrimp and Glass Noodle Salad

When I was a kid, afterschool time was the most anticipating time of the day. It’s not only because the tiring lessons were over, but it’s time to find something to eat after classes. When the bell rang, we would find several food carts at the school gate. This is a usual scene for most

Miang Koong (Thai Prawn Wrap)

Have you ever tried Wild Pepper Leaf? Wild Pepper Leaf or Bai Cha Plu is a pungent, peppery and citrusy leaf used in Southeast Asian cuisines. The leaf looks quite similar to a betel leaf, but they’re completely different thing. In my opinion, it’s one of the most exciting ingredients, and if you haven’t tried

Scallion Omelet

In the middle of April, the sky is harsh. The temperature here is baking hot every day. At night, I barely get some sleep because of the heat. Before summer was in full bloom, we thought about getting a new air cooler because the old one hasn’t been working properly. We thought about it a
