ABC Payasam

Payasam is an Indian desert usually made by boiling rice or vermicelli with milk, sugar and flavoured with cardamom. There are so many other variants besides rice and vermicelli that can be used and for this recipe I’ve used the alphabet pasta. This recipe is from my dear friend who used to make this for…

Salmon Fried Rice

This is like your usual fried rice and has no twist to it. I feel fried rice is a versatile dish and you can literally add anything you want to it and as I have been toying with some ideas for fried rice, I started with this simple salmon fried rice.  For this recipe, I…

Indian Fish Curry with Tom Yam Twist

This fish curry is made using tom yam paste and coconut milk and has a nice, tangy punch. Once you try making this dish, you may not want to try any other variety again, as it’s so addictive. I’ve made this a few times now and this is the best version so far. I’ve tried…

Baked Sweet Potatoes

I love sweet potato and usually have it baked. It’s so easy, cos you just marinate it with whatever spices that you fancy and bake it. I have tried doing a simple stir fry also, but prefer the taste of the sweet potato when baked. My usual marinate for this recipe is with garlic powder,…

My first attempt at cooking anything with fresh methi leaves was Aloo Methi, that I liked very much and recently I tried Methi Dal…

This is one of my favourite curries and it’s so easy to make. It goes well with any stir-fry veggie and a piece of fried fish.I’m really not sure of the English name for this particular type of spinach that I use. It’s green and red in colour. You can even use your favourite type…

Fried Tom Yum Bee Hoon

This fried tom yam bee hoon recipe is from my sister and it’s a ‘go to recipe’ for a quick and easy dish to prepare, especially when having unexpected guests over. It’s a dish we have all enjoyed tremendously, as it has the tangy taste of the tom yam paste and the bunga kantan, also…

Methi Dal

Methi is fenugreek and I used fresh fenugreek leaves for this recipe and yellow moong dal. I have tried with toor dal also, but prefer yellow moong in this particular dish. I am yet to try with chana dal. Methi is mainly used in Indian recipes and has many health benefits like lowering blood cholesterol,…
