Salted Fish & Mango Sambal (Gravy)

A weird combination? Of course not. I made Salted Fish & Mango Sambal, and I just so loved the role play of saltiness, sourness and spiciness in one. Anyway, have you tried Salted Fish (Pada Salt Fish Pickle & Salt Fish Pickle) & Mango Sambal before? If you have not, you shouldn't comment. Unless and until you make and taste, your feedback is valid. Otherwise?

Tamarind Prawn Curry

Tamarind Prawn Curry. The Indian style to a spicy, tangy and aromatic prawn curry. In fact, for a matter of fact, cleaning prawns is not my favorite thing in my kitchen (Devilled Prawns), but I guess when you have decided to cook a prawn dish, you gotto do it? Not a regularly though. Prawns by far for us only comes into our food picture, let's say every one month once most probably (Sambal Udang). Tamarind Prawn Curry (Assam Curry Fish, Penang Assam Laksa & Fried Kembung Assam Sauce).  Follow this recipe of mine and assured, you are on the right prawn track.

Jeera Rice/Cumin Rice

Jeera Rice. Cumin Rice. Meaning? Rice cooked with jeera, aka cumin seeds. Simply as that. More importantly, cooked in the rice cooker.  Jeera Rice. My-my. The scent of jeera and that tiny bit of spiciness from chillies in fluffy rice is such a rice pleasure.

Cashew Masala Chicken

Spiciness, cashew nut creaminess and crunchiness and curry leaf scented Cashew Masala Chicken everyone. I bet hunger throne is killing you softly right now? Must be. Who on earth by the way can say no Cashew Masala Chicken? Especially if you are true lover or sincere and genuine fan of Indian cuisine (Honey Chilli Chicken & Chicken Curry With Potatoes). I know. Anything else should I say? Pretty much nothing much (Ayam Masak Merah, Chicken Devil Curry & Tom Yam Chicken). Tuck in everyone.

Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup

If there's Indian meatballs, there must be Chinese meatballs right? Maybe not the same. Not dark mutton meatballs (Indian Mutton Meatball Soup), but rather white faded Chinese chicken meatballs? Oh Dear Me! What have I said? Then again, its the truth anyway. Mutton is dark in color, whereas chicken? Alright. Enough of meatball stories, let's make this Chinese Chicken Meatball Soup (Bee Hoon Soup, Chinese Black Vinegar Chicken & Chick Kut Teh). Meatballs which will float up in the soup once cooked and cabbage, and spring onion wondrously flavourful soup.
