Curry puffs and sardines puffs are a big part of my childhood snack. My mother used to buy them from Polar Cake, along with chicken pies for our mid-afternoon after school snacks or sometimes we’d reheat them for breakfast. My cook extraordinaire friend S shared her recipe and I’ve made two batches of this since. […]

My friend @thebombayeastindiangirl_14 and cook extraordinaire says this is daily common food and they mill their own flour (wheat, chickpeas etc) at home to make this dish on a daily basis to accompany meals. She did it so quickly over the pan, I was busy taking notes and marvelling at her dexterity. This first cooking […]

Chinese New Year in a couple of weeks and what better way to celebrate with a pohpiah party – the hokkien version of spring rolls- and always a welcome dish for big parties. Well, the thing about cooking alongside Mum is everything is agak agak (Malay word to guess/approximately) style and there is never an end […]

One of my favourite cuisines is Thai food – always fresh, sweet, tart and savory at the same time, throw in the fresh chillies and it’s a real party in the mouth. Plus, the ingredients involve lots of fresh vegetables to balance out the coconut milk heavy gravy. And of course we all know that […]
