Reanaclaire Cooks Dish With Basil Leaves

I LOVE THE SMELL OF BASIL LEAVES.....According to Nancy, they are easy to grow, no need pampering so since she has lots of them in her garden, I requested for some....Not Some but MORE of these leaves!  Yes, give me more, I said... hahahaha...   But I cannot be too greedy because they might not last that long if I do not use them within a couple of days.  Some people cannot stand the smell of Basil, as for me, I can even eat them in my  noodles soup.

Since I have some minced meat in my fridge, it would be best to mix them with basil leaves among other ingredients.... This dish reminds me of a Thai Dish which I ate in Penang...
Other ingredients such as.... 
Garlic, ginger, cilipadi, basil leaves and minced meat.... 
I sauteed alla the above first except for the basil which went in last.... 
Oh yeah, I added in some white wine too, soy sauce... a dash of salt.... 
Keep stirring and making noise with the ladle....
And the dish is ready to be served!
Yes, it was a dry version... keep it that way.... 
Best eaten with white porridge... 
Dinner for two is served... 
Two steamed dishes and one hot spicy dish!
*My portion of rice*

  3. Looks yummy!

    Mamarazzi once gave me a pot of basil plant, for us to enjoy cooking with but alas... it didn't survive for long.
    No more fresh basil at home!

  4. Claire, I think you cook just as good as the restaurants you eat at!! I LOVE basil too! I love the smell, and put it in everything, even soup. But I have never tried fresh, always use dry in the little jar. I need to try the fresh this summer!

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

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...
