Noodle and Meatball Soup

Yaseen has a day off so he would be responsible for his own lunch today. I am still fasting during the daylight hours which means lunch is all about him. Within my supervision, I let him select the ingredients and the dish to be made. When pulled out thin rice noodle, a bowl, and a couple

Bok Choy with Prawn

“Never cook boy choy more than a minute”, my mother used to say, fresh vegetables are always good as they are. So we love to toss the green leaves in the smoking hot wok, and let the leaves rustle fiery, greasy, iron surface. And it’s all to be quick, only a minute, let the heat

Curry Puff

Ramadan season gives me the luxury of time to explore the world, my schedule are filled with prayers, new adventures, books, and time for myself. I have a lot of time to think and do every single thing that I usually jump in too soon. The late afternoon when everything is in place and the superb

And when I said “smell”, it could mean “good smell” or “bad smell”, depending on where you stand on “fermented shrimp paste”. Nasi Goreng is Indonesian fried rice with vibrant spicy flavour. There was a time in

Cauliflower with Basil

I know we should not be eating deep fried food that much, but these crispy cauliflowers are seriously addictive. When I see the beautiful fresh cauliflower, I can’t help but imagine how the sweet juice leaks against the golden crunchy skin in every bite. And that’s how I have to immediately dip the white flowerets in

Chicken Rice with Leftover Baked Chicken Juice

Another recipe derived from leftover baked chicken I have forgotten to mention when I posted Chinese Cabbage Wrap with Groundnut sauce, is a pleasurable mouth watering Chicken rice. I have never thrown juice that dripping down from baked chicken away. It is one of the best parts of baking. The fat and flavours condensed from the

Have I told you that Yaseen and I won a gift voucher from McDonald few weeks ago? McDonald India has a wonderful contest in Facebook asking people to share their favorite McDonald moments. We entered the contest by sharing our super amazing moment when we were exhausted by hunger and dehydration and found McDonald paradise on the
