Reanaclaire's Assam Fish And Eggs With Tomatoes

FIRST TIME MAKING ASSAM FISH here in my little kitchen...

I bought three pieces of Red Fish and a packet of Nyonya paste... thought of buying some ladies' fingers aka okra then saw the price RM3.50 for a packet!  I put it back and chose three brinjals instead and what did I get?  The brinjals cost RM4.15... aiyoh, more expensive than the ladies fingers... see, penny wise, pound foolish.. ended up buying more expensive... *didn't feel like putting them back after weighing... self conscious!*

Since my little kitchen is going to close up once again, I tried to "get rid" of all perishable stuff in the fridge.. eggs, onions, garlic, tomatoes... I know my son will not do any more cooking when I am not around... so better use up whatever that cannot keep too long...
And thence the Assam Fish Curry....
Cut up everything...
Sauteed the garlic, big onions, fermented beancurd sauce and Nyonya sauce..
And dump all the vegetables inside after a few minutes..
Add in some water...
*but I ended up putting too much* 
And put in the fish when the vegetables turned a bit soft... 
Anyway... all turn out well and one....
My sons said more sauce is good...
Can drink as soup!!
hahhaaa...
Three eggs beaten well and sauteed with cut tomatoes and big onions.....
And our evening dinner... 
Very simple!
Eaten with our pumpkin brown rice and sambal dried prawns!
When I said Little Kitchen, it really means very mini sized..
Only one person can go in and cook..and that is...
Reanaclaire!

  8. Since they don't cook, so it is pointless to have a big kitchen anyway! Now that you going to stay with them for a bit, maybe is time to redo the kitchen to be bigger. Or get a bigger house! :D

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...
