Paratha Curry Puffs

Delicious paratha curry puffs – got the idea of using paratha as a curry puff pastry from a Singaporean friend a while back. Thank you for the great idea, Janice! 😁 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 1 to 1-1/4 pounds ground chicken (dark meat) 1 pound frozen diced potatoes (I use Ore-Ida Diced Hash Brown Potatoes) […]

Chicken, Fish Ball, and Tofu Soup

This is another dish from my childhood that I was reminiscing about lately. It’s an absolute comfort food to me – more hearty than your simple egg drop soup but still lighter than your typical American cream-based soup. Delicious! 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced 1 to 1-1/4 pounds ground chicken 1 […]

Steamed Fish with Chinese Preserved Radish

Another style of steamed fish – this time with ginger, garlic, and salted, spicy, shredded radish (plus a few other ingredients). So yum! I had a second helping of rice! 4 frozen tilapia fillets, do not have to thaw 1/2 tablespoon oil A couple thin slices of ginger, julienned 1/2 (3.5 oz) package salted spicy […]

Steamed Fish

I truly eat with eyes first! After watching a video of a restaurant serving a giant steamed fish, I immediately felt the need to eat some, lol. It doesn’t have to be a humongous fish obviously… fact, I find fillets to be extremely convenient to steam. Yum! 4 frozen tilapia fillets, do not have to […]

Fried Stuffed Tofu and Chicken Fritters

Today, I made fried stuffed tofu and chicken fritters. The stuffing is the exact same mixture I use to make the chicken fritters, so whatever you have left after filling the tofu, just fry it up (in fact, I typically double the filling so I can make more chicken fritters!). Yum! 😁 2 (19 oz) […]

Homemade Char Siu and Kolo Mee

For dinner yesterday, I made a simplified version of char siu (Chinese barbecued pork) and kolo mee, a simple dish of noodles tossed in a mixture of light, flavorful seasonings. Too delicious to stop eating! Enjoy! Make the barbecued pork: 1/2 cup light soy sauce 1/2 cup honey 2 tablespoons cream sherry Approx 2 to […]

Kway Chap (Flat Rice Noodles with Pork Stew)

This is another popular street food in South East Asia – something I would not have considered making at home if I live there. Traditionally, the stew consists of pork and various pig organs but for simplicity and convenience, pork tenderloin or other pork cuts would suffice and be as delicious! Enjoy! {Adapted from Spice […]

Chicken Egg Rolls

The deep-frying saga continues today, lol. Another thing I craved recently is fried spring rolls. I ended up making egg rolls instead since I didn’t feel like going to the Asian store to buy spring roll wraps. I have to say I am pretty impressed with the Nasoya egg roll wraps – everything you need […]

Tuna Salad

I actually put this together late last night before I went to bed, anticipating that we would want something easy-peasy for lunch today and I’m all out of leftovers, lol. Delicious! 2 (7 ounce) cans tuna (I use Chicken of the Sea Tuna Chunk Light) 3/4 cup mayo 2 tablespoons sweet relish 1 stalk celery, […]
