If you’ve been with us for a while, you probably know that we just love deep-fried food. We deep fry everything, from Oreo to a whole big fish. The other day, Yaseen even invented his version of Deep Fried Marshmallow, which I’m going to share a recipe with you soon. And although we always try to

Fried Tilapia with Garlic and Basil

Fried Tilapia 3

So, often people ask me “where is the best place for Thai food in this city?” My answer always remains the same— we don’t usually buy Thai food outside because we cook that at home. When we go out, we usually look for other stuff. The truth is it’s really a big point of the

Seafood might be the most special protein source in my household. We love fish, prawns calamari, crabs, and all the sea produce, but the city we stay in India is far away from the sea and fresh seafood can be demanding and expensive. We did our best to savor the taste of the sea while

Prawn and Calamari Tempura

Tempura 3

Yesterday I showed you how to make Tempura Flour. I use this formula in various deep fried dishes. It gives beautifully crunchy texture to the food. Today it’s time to put this tempura flour to test! Usually tempura batter is made with eggs and flour with some seasoning and super chilled water. It’s very easy and

Som Nuer Tod 1

It’s time to fry some of this preserved meat wrapped in banana leaf. When the meat is unwrapped, the pungent scent rise as the pale meat seems light and decadent. Many people will be tempted to eat it raw, and this is totally fine. I like to fry it, because I think the heat makes

It’s 2 pm on Sunday, and I feel like the morning hasn’t left yet. The weather is so dreamy, frail and chilly. We can be lazy today. Yaseen doesn’t have any school work, Sadik is out with friends, and my mom and I has been hanging out in the soft sun on our balcony. Breakfast

Fish is a stable side dish in Kerala. As a rice consuming state of India, fish makes a perfect entremet in everyday meal in the coastal regions of India. Whether it is a curry or fries, dried and fry again, most people in Kerala just can’t live without fish. I’m not exaggerating; fish is a

Calamari Tempura

Usually I don’t like to take the picture of the food we made for dinner to post in our blog, because the pictures came out very horrible in low light shooting. But this calamari tempura I cooked last night was so good, I had to take the pictures of it so I could share this

Spicy and Aromatic Fried Chicken

I used to be one of those people who tried to figure out KFC recipe. I tried everything, but it had never succeeded. I come to understand now that KFC is something that meant to be bought and enjoy outside my kitchen. Now, other kind of fried chicken, on the other hand, different from KFC,

15 Minutes Banana and Peanut Butter Donuts

Most weekends when we decide to go hiking, I get up early to prepare something. While Sadik and Yaseen are still feeling comfy under the blanket, I whip up and pack breakfast and lunch. By the time the boys are ready, the picnic basket is filled with so many homey, delicious things. While we are on
