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

Mushroom with Yellow Bean Paste

The weather has turned boiling hot in my city. It’s strange because in the morning the temperature is quite cool. On Sunday, when we made a spontaneous trip out of town, we were surprised to see that it was only 14 C in the morning, and the mercury rose throughout the day, so by the

Stir Fried Calamari with Chili and Garlic

I don’t always stick to the plan, but there’s one thing I’m very punctual perpetually. Sunday morning, it’s time to visit our local fish market. At the local fish markets here, the fish trucks arrived every Sunday so it’s the perfect time to get fresh seafood. Morning is ideal because the fish is just unloaded

The other day I read an online e-book about how to save money of grocery. I will not share the name of this book because I highly disagree with it. After I finished one chapter, I closed the files and deleted it from my device. I didn’t hate the book, but it’s absolutely not my

Tofu with Crab

It’s funny I think I’m kind of mean to my kid sometimes. Yaseen is scared of crab. He is not a fan of any kind of shellfish either. But he loves tofu you see. So it’s so wicked of me to combine these two ingredients together. I love how tofu is so nutritious, but it

Do you know you can eat cashew fruits? When I was a kid, during dry winter in Thailand, there were cashew apples hanging on the trees. Yes, the fruits look kind of like apples or maybe pears, with yellowish orange to juicy red. I took a bite once, but didn’t like it one bit. I

Spicy Sausage with Pea and Carrot

Spicy Sausage with Pea 1

I love spicy sausage. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a dozen times already, but yes, spicy sausage is my thing. My favorite way to cook it is with spaghetti. Today I’m trying something different, and I really need to learn to use all veggies in my fridge, and not let them go to waste. So

Chili and Garlic Oyster Mushroom

When Sadik and I find oyster mushrooms in the market, our brains think in different directions. When he picks it up, he thinks about Indian Spicy Mushroom with lots of coriander seed powder that makes the mushrooms taste almost like meat. I think about Tom Yum Mushroom or simple stir fry. He wants his way

Stir Fried Mushroom with Bok Choy and Egg

Stir fried mushroom with bok choy and egg 2

A few days ago, I saw someone write something very ridiculous online. They say curry paste is extremely essential to most dishes in Thai cooking. This is so not true because cooking with curry pastes is merely a fraction of Thai cooking. When I grew up in my hometown, we rarely used curry pastes. Curry

A Fabulous meal can be made in minutes, too. I am a stir- fry worshiper. I believe that not only stir frying helps maintaining nutrients in the ingredients, but the non complicated process allows the beautiful characters of the ingredients to shine. Stir frying is my favorite technique of cooking, and it’s how most of
