Pumpkin Mantou

  Mantou is a type of Chinese steamed bun. Unlike baozi, it is normally without filling. It can be eaten plain or sandwiched with stuffed meat. It is also great for dipping into gravy or curry sauce.   Mantou doesn’t have to be the usual plain boring white. It can be colourful as well by adding vegetable puree. I particularly like to use pumpkin puree as it gives the mantou a bright yellow look...

Basic Tomato Sauce

  I love tomatoes for their vibrant colour, flavour and nutrient. I buy tomatoes almost every week from my favourite vegetable seller who sells his own produce from Bukit Tinggi, at the foothill of Genting Highland. Their tomatoes are not only fresh and cheap but also pesticide-free. As you can see from the photos, they even come with green stem attached. How lovely!   Tomatoes are so versatile that...

Wholemeal Thin Crackers

  Last week, my son’s school celebrated Children’s Day. His teacher asked her students to bring some healthy food to share on that day. So, my son asked me whether I could bake something for his classmates, but it had to be eggless as some of them are on a vegetarian diet.   To fulfil this “once-a-year” request (as claimed by my son, which of course is not entirely true), I had baked 2 types...

Double Chocolate Muffins

  Chocolate is my son’s best friend. Whatever I baked that has chocolate in it will definitely please him more than anything else. However, I don’t bake with chocolate that often as I don’t want to over-indulge him with it.   These double chocolate muffins are something that my son has been looking forward to all these while. As his final exam was just over recently, I thought it would be a...

Almond Chocolate Butter

  Making nut butter from scratch is pretty easy. Once you have learned the basic blending techniques, you can easily whip up any kind of nut butters (such as peanut butter) or mixed nut and seed butters, in small or big batches, as and when you like.   This “so heavenly good” almond chocolate butter is truly the almond version of Nutella, as described by Love and Olive Oil, which I can’t agree...

Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce

  My family and I love satay. Whenever we want to eat satay, we will usually head to Kajang, a small town 25km from Kuala Lumpur where our favourite satay stall is located. As it is too far from our place, we only frequent it once in a while. Nevertheless, I have figured out a way to fix our satay craving, and that’s making my own satay!!   Making authentic Malaysian satay with peanut dipping sauce...

Strawberry Cream Cheese Popsicles

  On a scorching hot afternoon, nothing could be better than having a cool treat to chill you down. Homemade popsicles are my son’s all-time favourite cool treat. Whenever there are fresh and cheap berries in the market, I will make a bunch of popsicles and stock them in the fridge. The berries season is back now, and it’s time to dig out my popsicle moulds again.   Homemade popsicles are not...

Korean Vegetable Pancakes

  I have always wanted to learn how to cook Korean food, and these Korean vegetable pancakes are my very first experience in doing so. These savoury pancakes look a little like omelette but the texture is slightly crispy outside and chewy inside. They are usually served with a dipping sauce.   These pancakes are quick and easy to make. All it takes is to prepare some vegetables of your choice, coat...

Wholemeal Banana Chocolate Chip Pancakes

  If you don’t have an oven but plan to make a simple snack for your kid, what could you make? My answer is definitely PANCAKE! With just a few ingredients and some simple cooking equipment, a batch of homemade pancakes will be ready in no time.   There are lots of methods in making pancakes. Each method has its own uniqueness. Interestingly, even for the same recipe, a slight change will yield...

Applesauce Granola

  My family is a great fan of granola. Since making my first granola one year ago, I have stopped buying granola from the supermarket. This is because it is healthier, more nutritious and delicious. It also gives me more savings too.   Making your own granola is a breeze. It also allows you to take full control over the selection of ingredients and the amount of sweeteners to be used. You can...
