Coconut Fish Curry

Every time I want to make fish curry, I remember my friend, Sushma’s favourite combo of fish curry with fish fry. It truly is a nice combo but generally I am happy either having fish curry or fish fry. I usually prefer the gravy in the fish curry to be thick. My usual go-to recipe…

Suji Cake

A little misunderstanding on what I was to make for my nephew ended up with me making this cake when what he really wanted was the suji biscuits (that has no suji in it….😂)! This cake is made using butter, almonds and semolina. You beat the butter and sugar first and add the semolina and…

Sambal Goreng

Sambal Goreng is my favourite dish and it is always the first thing I choose from the wide range of cooked food served with white rice from the Malay stall at the various food courts in Singapore. It’s basically made from tofu, tempeh (fermented soya) and long beans. ‘Sambal’ is basically chilli paste and ‘Goreng’…

Gluten Free Snickerdoodle Muffins

You may be wondering what a ‘snickerdoodle’ is. Honestly, I did too but did not bother finding out what it was, as I was in a hurry to bake the muffins as it was ‘gluten free’! I have been asked to lay off gluten and wheat, so have been trying to look for ‘gluten free’…

Kidz Korner – Milo Cookies

Tejas here:  So, this idea was something that my aunt Shobz and I had been thinking of for quite a while and today we finally (😌) got round to doing it! It was quite interesting to do something that I have always wanted to. It is a very fast cookie to make. When I was…

Kidz Korner

Hi All, my nephew Tejas sometime back bullied his grandmother to make him butter sugar toast and top it off with milo powder. His ever-loving grandmother set about making the toast as per his request and when it was ready, he casually says that he was just joking! Kidz these days! (that’s his favourite line…

Kesari

I was having a small function at home couple of weeks back and wanted kesari as dessert. Surprisingly, the others at home also wanted the same. So my mum was cornered into making it and she was kinda freaking out, cos it had been decades since she last made it. The kesari that you get…

Karela Fry (Bitter Gourd Fry)

I don’t know if you recall reading in my blog about how I’m not a huge fan of karela (bitter gourd), but of course over the past 4 years or so, I have developed a liking for it, provided it’s cooked my way and must ensure the bitterness is minimal…. ha ha! I tried to…

Channa Dal

I wanted to inaugurate my new kitchen with my favourite dishes and had planned to make dal fry. I soaked the dal in water (cos I don’t use pressure cooker!) and after a few hours, I started boiling it. As I usually use toor dal for this preparation, I only realized that I had used…

Crispy Fried Tempeh

I had to search high and low on the net to get the exact explanation for what tempeh is! So, the best explanation for those who don’t know what tempeh is, would be that it’s a protein rich soy food with a firm texture and nutty flavour and is made from fermented soybeans. Oh, and…
