Baked Cornflakes Chicken

After all the many years behind the road, when you invest in an oven, don't you think we should start baking? Utterly. Otherwise, it defeats the purpose of investing in a new kitchen equipment. Don't you think so? I reckon. All these while, I have been the over the stove portable grilling pan person (Grilled Fish In Banana Leaf & Grilled Salmon). So, oven investment seemingly has brought a broad smile on my face. Nevertheless, I must also say that we Malaysians, unless you are baking enthusiast, we generally prefer on fire under our pots and pans cooking. Anyway, I am not regretting. Never know, it may spiral me to start seriously baking? Early to throw words though and mind you, I have already started and here is the latest from my oven. Baked Cornflakes Chicken (Grilled Chicken Wings). Any part will do (Sesame Chicken & Sweet Chilli Chicken), of course, I love the sinful wings (Chicken Feet Kerabu/Salad), but remember, as far as I know, baking is healthier compared to frying (Fried Shrimp Wanton). Dried herbs I already had went into this baked cornflakes chicken, of course you have the liberty to to other herbs, fresh or dried. Crispy, yummy and mouth crunching pop-ohlalala Baked Cornflakes Chicken, paired alongside sweet potatoes, optional. 

For chicken wings
5 chicken wings - cut into two pieces between the thick and thin bones
1 1/2 cup corn flakes - crushed
5 garlic - chopped
1 tsp  dried oregano
1 tsp dried basil
1 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
4 tbsp olive oil
Salt to taste

For sweet potatoes
2 (about 300g) sweet potatoes - simmered and cubed
2 tbsp olive oil
Pepper and salt to taste
Marinate wings with oil, garlic, oregano, basil, chilli flakes and salt for at least 2 hours.
Thereafter, coat/roll each wing generously over corn flakes.
Arrange on a non stick baking tray/pan.
Bake at 180c for 40 mins or until wings are cooked, crispy brown coating atop.
(Note: when one side is brown enough, turn wings over so that both sides are evenly baked)

For The Sweet Potatoes
In a mixing bowl, combine and toss all the ingredients.
Serve with baked wings.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
