Bread Pudding

I love bread, in almost any form. It is my comfort food, my convalescence food and I can have it almost 24/7! I am yet to try baking bread on my own, though it is on my to-do list and am focusing more on the gluten free variety. The other day, both hub and I…

Kangkong Stir Fry

This is a very easy and simple dish to prepare. Kangkong is also known as Water Spinach or Morning Glory and is one of my favourite green veggie. I love the sambal kangkong that you get from the Malay stalls here, as they add belachan (shrimp paste) or the dried prawns. I made this suitable…

Blueberry Muffin with Streusel Topping

OMG, these blueberry streusel muffins are out of this world, if I say so myself! 😉 These muffins are so soft, moist and delicious and you will not be able to stop at one. I had reduced the sugar quite a bit, so you don’t have to feel guilty…. ha ha! So, what is streusel…

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…

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…
