In And Out Homecooked Food

HOMECOOKED AND OUTCOOKED... A mixture of two... 

I like pumpkin soup, it has its own natural sweetness so there are a few ways of cooking pumpkin.  Boil, steam, braise, sauteed, baked, all these can be done on pumpkin.  For me, I like to boil pumpkin soup, adding in tomatoes, big onions, carrots and chicken/pork... oh yes, must add in some peppercorn for a mild spicy taste.  Sometimes I use pumpkin to cook curry, it thickens the gravy, I like that.

So... on this day, I put the above ingredients into the smart cooker, pressed "soup" and I went off to do my chores.  Within half hour, the soup is done!  Just soup?  Then I did the lazy way out, I went out to get some ready cooked dishes nearby... taking a tiffin carrier, I bought back four types of vegetables and 3 pieces of fried chicken.  My meals for the day is completed!! 

Eggs and long beans in one carrier...
Brinjal and hairy gourd in another tiffin....
Besides the dishes, this shop is also famous for their fried chicken... 
And recently, even more famous from a HK actor by the name of Chapman To....
After his review, now we have to queue for these fried chicken..
No thanks to him... many complained... LOL.... 
To avoid the peak hour, I go at 10.45am to avoid long queue... 
The dishes minus the soup above cost a bit below RM20....
Enough for us for one day....

  5. The actor's good review is good for the business but it means longer queue for the customers.
