Jeaw Hon (Isaan Meat Soup)

jeaw-hon-2

The other day, Yaseen asked me what weather we’re in right now. I was speechless for a whole minute because I truly didn’t know what kind of weather we were in at the moment. I told him “Well, we’re kind of in the end of rainy season and on the way to winter.” He seemed

Tofu and Mushroom with Seaweed Soup

It’s another busy week in this household. Yaseen is having mid-term exams at the moment, and Sadik is in the south for the conference. It’s tough when I have to run the show alone. Usually, Sadik helps me get Yaseen ready for school while I cook them breakfast and pack lunch. Now I have to

Vietnamese Noodle Soup

Vietnamese Noodle Soup 1

I love noodle soup. Any kind of noodle soup. It’s the combination of soft and rubbery noodle in flavorful hot broth that feels very soothing. I cook noodle really often at home. Maybe more than five times a week. We handle all types of noodle in my kitchen; whether it’s Thai rice noodle, Japanese Soba

Pea and Leek Soup

Leek and Pea Soup 2

The weather in Pune has been really cold lately. I love chill air. It makes me want to fill the whole house with warmth, buttery baking smell and comfort food. And when you think about comfort food, what pops right in your mind right away? For me, it’s soup. Hot, yummy, fresh home-made soup. My favorite

Thai Sukiyaki with Marinated Meat

Remember I told you about Thai Sukiyaki before? It’s a comforting soup with vegetable, meat, bean thread noodle and sukiyaki sauce, the pungent chili base sauce with sesame seeds. I showed you the seafood version of this dish before. Today I just made it with marinated meat. You can use any kind of red meat or

A Simple Broth

simple broth 1

I like buying chicken from a local store than buying package meat from a supermarket. The local store prepares the chicken for you as soon as you ordered so it’s super fresh. But bad side though, you will get the whole chicken, not the specific portion you just want for your cooking. So when I bring

Noodle with Miso and Mushroom Broth

It rained at 9.30 am here, yesterday. It wasn’t much and not at all satisfying but it cooled the air down enough to have a thought for a soup. The smell of wet mud rose from the ground to our 4th floor apartment. I opened the window and invited the cold spray in. Anything hot

Soup of the Sea

I grew up in Northeast of Thailand, where it was separated and cut out from the sea. The first time I saw the sea was on a family trip when I was really young. I didn’t remember when or any other details about the trip but the great, grand, glorious view that took my breath

Chicken Noodle with Hot Broth

A bowl of noodle soup works as any meal. It can be a hearty breakfast, lunch or dinner. So whenever I prepare broth for noodle soup, I cook in mass. Broth can be store in refrigerator for very long time. For a quick bowl of noodle, I heat up the broth, blanch the noodle and

Chinese Herbal Chicken Soup

Whenever Yaseen caught a fever, it’s extremely difficult to make him take medicine. Do you have the same problem with your kid? I don’t know what to do. Whatever we did, playing good cop, bad cop, we couldn’t seem to force the medicine down his throat. So to make him feel better and taking medicine is
