How to roast cashew nuts

  I love eating all kinds of tree nuts. Once I start munching them, I can never put a stop to it. Yes, I can go nuts on nuts! So too is my hubby. We are “NUTTY” people!

Steamed sweet potato buns

  I came to know from my schoolmate, BT that her mother is good at making homemade steamed buns (pao), be it with char-siew (barbecue pork), lotus paste or sweet potato stuffing. Her 4-years old son likes them a lot. When I expressed my eagerness to learn from her mother, she had immediately obliged to my request and arranged a bun making session for me with her mom when I was back home in Penang recently. ...

How to remove tofu from the box

  From the day I got “promoted” to be the family’s “chief chef” (as mother-in-law was no longer staying with us), I have been calling my mother more often than before to consult her on cooking-related matters.

This fried shallot is the only deep-frying dish in my entire recipes. I made it on a weekly basis as I need the flavoured...

Sushi rolls 寿司卷

I always love to admire those beautiful sushi rolls posted by other food bloggers but have never attempt to make it myself.

As compared to baking, the risk of “disaster” is definitely lesser. No matter what...

Broccoli – How to blanch

“What is your favourite vegetable?” “BROCCOLI!!”That’s the immediate response I always get from my son. The strange thing is he enjoys eating broccoli using his fingers. Maybe it is really a “finger lickin’ good” vegetable! When I first started to make my own baby food, I read about broccoli is one of the high-nitrate vegetables (besides beets, cabbage, carrots, celery, spinach etc) which...

How to make “smooth & springy” fish paste

Fish paste can be used in different cooking methods. Eg, boiling (fish ball or yu wat 鱼滑), steaming (with beancurd 老少平安, otak-otak), stuffing (yong tau fu 酿豆腐), pan-frying or deep-frying (patties, fish cakes).
