The Accidental Roti

This is a story of how I accidentally made ‘roti’, those delicious Indian flat-breads you get when you order your takeaway. It happened at 10 p.m and we could not be happier with the results. None went in the bin, as culinary mistakes so often do.

Hyderabadi Mutton Curry

This curry was made solely to accompany some flat breads I had inadvertently made the night before. Made a fresh batch of roti today, and the boyfriend insisted no other curry would so apart from a lamb/ mutton curry. So here it is, a recipe which I have learned from a friend, and I am sharing it with you now … Hyderabadi Mutton Curry.

Steamed Ginger Chicken with Mushrooms & Broccoli

Healthy cooking for me today, in the form of this classic homey dish consisting of chicken wings, marinated in ginger and garlic, then steamed with some plump mushrooms and broccoli. Easy Chinese-style home cooking here so it’s incredibly simple and easy to put together.

Apple & Blueberry Lattice Pie

Today I am trying my hand at the thing I dread the most … making pie crust from scratch. Yikes! Very nervous but hey, I thought if I didn’t try it I’d never get over the phobia … so I did. And what came out of that oven was nothing short of a miracle. I couldn’t believe how I had managed to bake my first American-style pie from scratch and it turned out in one piece, looking every inch like how I had envisioned a pie to be.

Tagliatelle with Tuna, Crab, Spring Peas and Asparagus

I rarely get creative with pasta. I know the ones I like and I tend to make those over and over again. Hey, if it ain’t broke, right? Anyway I had to find a way to use up some expensive asparagus and this is what I did with them. Simple flavours all put together in thirty minutes flat because everything else is already cooked.

Eggplant in Spicy Shrimp & Belachan Paste

This is everyday Malaysian cooking at its best. Simple, quick to prepare and oh-so delicious, this vegetable dish packs a lot of flavour thanks to the use of pungent shrimp paste and chillies. It’s definitely a dish for chilli lovers … you’ve been warned.

Bake Club Challenge: Oreo Bottomed Brownies

Brownies go down fast in this house; how can they not? They are sooo delicious, one slice is never enough. I made these for March’s Bake Club Challenge and I made some personal changes to the original recipe simply because I do not like nuts in my brownie. This brownie variety was kinda made up in the middle of the night and it turned out to be a keeper. Another one for my brownie file.

Roti Jala : Malaysian Lace Pancakes.

Another yummy Malaysian classic ~ these “pancakes” are traditionally served along side curry. I like to think that these were very popular back in the day, but sadly these days no one makes them anymore. The only time I ever see these would be at weddings, kenduris (Malay neighbourhood banquets) or at certain food stalls during the holy month of Ramadhan. Rather fiddly if you don’t get the consistency right, but soldier on and you will be rewarded.

Nasi Kuning with Malaysian Beef Rendang

A couple of days ago I introduced a very classic Chinese delicacy using glutinous rice. That was the first time I ever worked with the stuff and it was a rounding success. Encouraged, I now present another Malaysian classic, popular amongst the Malay community. The rice is simple to be sure, but the rendang that goes with it is more on the technical side. Nasi kuning means yellow rice in Malay.
