Sweet and Sour Karela (Bitter Gourd)

You must be wondering how this can even be possible 😂! But trust me…. the sweet and tangy taste will truly deter you away from the bitterness of the bitter gourd (karela) 😉. Honestly, this was an “accidental” dish. I started off trying to make something different with bitter gourd and ended up getting an…

Scrambled Tofu

This is a good alternative to egg for those who are vegan and it’s a super easy and quick dish to prepare. It’s pretty much like scrambled eggs but instead of eggs, we use tofu. Or you may also use paneer and you can find my paneer bhurji recipe here. You can easily mash the…

Cauliflower and Tempeh

The recipe that I came across was originally sesame beef and broccoli and since I do not eat both, I substituted cauliflower for broccoli and tempeh for beef…😂. As I love both cauliflower and tempeh, I felt that it would be a great substitute and I was not disappointed with the end result. Tempeh is…

Korean Style Spicy Tofu

I’ve not tried Korean cuisine before and the only reason I tried this out was for the two words that stood out – spicy and tofu…. ha ha. But honestly, it is not as spicy as you would expect it to be. This recipe calls for a Korean chilli paste called Gochujang and it is…

Tomato Fry

If you love tomatoes, this just may be the one for you. It’s loaded with tomatoes and goes so well with plain white rice or chappati. This was another favourite dish of my friends in the UAE and they used to request for it frequently, together with the tofu sambal and paneer bhurji. It’s really…

Tofu Sambal

Tofu or most commonly known here as Tauhu, is bean curd and I may have mentioned before that I love tofu in almost any form. Besides the paneer burji, tofu sambal used to be the most requested dish my office colleagues in the UAE used to ask me to make. When they tried it for…

Aloo Methi

Aloo is Potato and Methi is Fenugreek. This delicious and easy to cook dish is prepared with fresh fenugreek leaves, that has amazing health benefits including lowering cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. Methi with Aloo is a wonderful combination. This dish is very common in North Indian homes and goes very well with fresh,…

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…

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’…

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…
