Steamed Chicken, Pickled Cucumber And Durians

HOMECOOKED FOOD ....

Not directly Mama's cooking but from Big Auntie's house.  Aaron loves her signature Steamed Chicken, she has a secret recipe for that and he is always requesting for that dish.  And his request is granted.... all he has to do is get a few durians back to the house in exchange for a yummylicious dinner!  LOL....

Durians are so abundant nowadays, we hear so many 'stories' of this abundance, that some do not dare to eat especially those of us who are Facebook users.  The more we see, the more we refrain from eating.  LOL... However eating moderately should be alright, buying those without branded names should be alright too... and after that, drink more eat more mangosteens or drink fresh coconut water. 

And now the dishes.... 
Best in the world... Homecooked steamed chicken...
Picked cucumber....
Steamed eggs....
Braised pork with radish.... 
And an extra dish to go with the rice!
Before digging in... CHEEZEEE!

  2. I can see why Aaron loves this dish! It is beautiful, she really knows how to plate! So what it it about the durians? Are some of them not good? Do they have many calories?

  4. I couldn't resist a good home cooked meal. Steamed chicken. Must be very good.

    I would refrain from durian and all heart stuff for time being. Been under the weather yesterday. Now slightly better.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
