Rice Dumpling Stuffed with Split Moong Beans

dumpling-with-moong-18

It’s still dark when I woke up in the morning. The air was really chilly, too, because last night we left the windows opened. I went to the kitchen and put a pot of water on the stove. We still don’t have water heater, you know, so I need to boil some water for Yaseen

Mini Banana Spring Rolls

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

Teriyaki Squid

We always love the vibrant scene of our local fish market. It was always crowded, noisy, and colorful. Last Sunday, Sadik and I went to buy fresh seafood. We want to get some squid for dinner sometimes this week. Our fish monger tried to sell us giant squids when we told him we only need

Vegan Bombay Sandwich

Bombay Sandwich 1

I have been incorporating more vegetarian and plant based food in my diet this summer. The reason why I even considered this is because summer really kills my appetite. I have been noticing the boys left the chunks of meat on their plates, too. I guess the meat is too heavy for the stomach at

{5 Minutes Snack} Spiced Paneer

Spiced Paneer 1

My 7 years old boy Yaseen just loves tofu and paneer (Indian Cottage Cheese). When we go grocery shopping at a supermarket, he usually runs to the cold storage section and grabs a few blocks of tofu or paneer by himself. He is very particular about how he wants them to be cooked. For tofu,

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

Thai Fried Sweet Potato

I first tasted Lays potato chips in middle school. It’s not like I didn’t eat snacks when I was younger. I ate a lot actually. They’re just not in the glossy packages and sold in supermarkets. I bought my snacks from hawkers and street stalls. These snacks were produce-driven food. They’re seasonal, fresh and hot.

Butter and Sugar Toast

Sugar Toast 5

Butter should be used instead of an alarm clock to wake people up. I hate the high pitch ringing that arrogantly rocks my house every 6 am. But I think we should wake people up in the gentle ways. Something soft like butter, maybe, can persuade my family to get out of bed easily. It’s simple.

Crispy Deep Fried Oyster Mushroom

Deep Fried Oyster Mushroom 4

When we went to Thailand last June, my cousin got us deep fried mushrooms. At first, I seriously didn’t know what it was. All I knew was it was something meaty and crispy. Two massive bags of the crispiness later, I found out that it was mushrooms. I couldn’t believe it. I wouldn’t have guessed

Sprinkle Cookies

If you followed us on Tes at Home Facebook Page, you’d know that Sadik was on the mountains in the north of India for over a week. It’s his annual ritual. He has to go up there every year. Traveling opens up our mind. I love how it makes us positive and allows us to
