Simple Dishes For A Family Of Four

Marketing in dry and wet market is easily accessible now at the area where we are staying... I do not have to go to the supermarkets in the malls as much as before... Now I know of several shops that sells fresh poultry and another two shops that sell greens and other essential stuff needed for cooking... Well, that leaves no more excuses...

I have to start from the basics again, get used to cooking the simple dishes first and then referring to those chef bloggers for more complicated recipes! hahahaa.. Hold on to those first... One step at a time... as long as no complaints from the eaters, I would take a step further along the way....
Start simple cooking... with greens and meat...
Fried rice with two types of eggs... salted eggs enhance the flavour.... 
the kids love it!
 My boys miss the minced meat with "tong choy"
So here it is....
Simple greens...
 Sweet sour "skinless" fish after frying...
hahahaa...
Four dishes this time...
They requested for Pumpkin soup...
That one is no more a problem for me...
hahahaha...
And... as usual..... A"welfie" before the eating starts.... 
Mission accomplished!

  2. Hahhhh!!!! The fish got stuck to the wok eh? Skinless! Hehehehehe!!!!! Pat it dry with some kitchen towel, heat the wok till very hot, pour in the oil and wait till it is very hot...let the fish down into the oil slowly - do not move it till the spluttering sound has subsided - in the meantime, use the ladle to splash some of the oil onto the other side of the fish. Push gently till it comes free...and then, flip to fry the other side. No problem one, sure will not stick...so your fish will still have skin! :D :D :D

  9. I like your cooking. Very homey. Yes, simple dishes they were.

    I always prefer marketing in wet markets than supermarkets. Cheaper and fresher.

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

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! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
