Kids these days? I really don't know what to say. Even their parents I think can't comprehend either why their kids fuss about food (Vegetarian Chow Mein & Lamb Kofta Curry). You tell me? I am actually lost for answers. Their parents on the other hand are good in laying out the terms and conditions on what their kids eat or not, but if you ask why they don't eat certain things? Parents? Those parents? They can't relate. Of course, they must defend thier kids? Their adorable darlings who, some of the time trust me, can bring the roof down when they are asked to try a new dish (Salted Egg Chicken). Unbelievable. But when fast food is a concern, oh-my-my. Fried chicken and burgers (Easy Chicken Kebab, Grilled Chicken Wings & Lamb Burger)? Do I have to potentially utter any single word? What about eggs? Am I wrong if I say most kids love eggs (Egg Fish Roll, Egg Rasam & Tea Eggs)? Correct me if I am wrong. A simple egg fried rice (Anchovies Long Beans Fried Rice)? I think should be okay? Then again, its also subjective to how egg is presented to them (Egg Gado Gado, Egg Curry Masala, Bean Sprouts Omelette & Tofu Scrambled Eggs)? Having said that, I think egg is still, as far as I know, a safe bet (Fried Egg With Oyster Sauce & Egg Potato Curry). How about this Eggs Benedict? Right. Maybe you should omit the chillies? Other than that, I believe Eggs Benedicts will be loved by our kids and most of us. Of course, this is the tweeted version and must be a Malaysian version for me right?

Let's not even speak about the huge, humongous collection to various styles and types of Chow Mein. Aplenty mind you. In fact, spilling over crazily. To believe me, do the search in the virtual world. I bet you will be confused which recipe you should nail. Even for the vegetarian Chow Mein mind you. Did I peep or slyly steal other people's recipes? Neh? Whatever for? When we have decided to use our previously gained experiences in our kitchen (Vegetarian Fried Bee Hoon, Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup, Mee Rojak Vegetarian, Curry Mee Vegetarian & Vegetarian Mee Hoon). So, I say none further except introduce Vegetarian Chow Mein to you right now at this juncture. I believe egg noodles and egg by itself may be a restraining order for some vegetarians? Whereas others are super fine? To the pure vegetarians, switch to wheat noodles and obviously, don't crack the egg. Vegetarian Chow Mein is a truthful bridge to a healthy noodle dish.

Pineapple Bread Pudding). Mothers those days? Have you realise they like the overdosing of sugar into desserts? By Far. As far as I know (Marble Cake, Chocolate Rum Tart & Poached Pears In Citrus Syrup). Indeed. And of course rice, we Indians I think are one of the biggest consumers of rice. In fact, I am one of them. Rice is my love. Forever (Jeera/Cumin Rice, Lemon Cashew Rice, Rice Congee With Condiments & Anchovies Fried Rice). When left over rice is a concern, generally, the recipes I have already attached are the indicators to our, one of it, one of our fav Malaysian dish. Nasi Goreng or Fried Rice. But not necessarily must be. You can, trust me, believe me, make this Baked Rice Pudding from leftover cooked white rice. Yes. I did it. What should hold you back? Nonetheless, I decided it should be the baked version instead of over the stove like my mums. Pretty much I think we need the common ingredients and cherries? They are so lovely. Prettiness for a simple deco right?

Avoiding stress in this current era I think is impossible. Oh well, definitely impossible, such is the call of life because it is not anymore about simplicity or being contented with what we have. We want to strive, we want to excel and we want to have better of everything. Perhaps it may not be about striving but working hard to provide the best for the family I know is unavoidable. Nonetheless, we do have the option to take it easy especially during the weekends by slouching in front of tv to catch up on a movie and sip into a boozy drink. But instead of drowning with alcohol, Sangria is a better option. And today, let me share with you how to make this Sangria with grapefruit juice, ice cream soda and mint leaves - just so easy and simple.

Possible or impossible? Possible. What is possible? Vegetarian Burger and Mushroom Veggie Burger. I have already made. Henceforth, I can affirm. We can of course make vegetarian burger (Vegetarian Fried Mee Hoon, Drumstick Sambar, Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Spinach Tofu Stir Fry & Creamy Coconut Lentil Curry). Various types, various styles, your style and my style? I think veggie burger out of mushroom is (Mushroom Rolls)? Not those expensive shrooms. Not the portobello. Nope. You can actually make mushroom burger from canned button mushrooms. Yes, you can. I did it for this Mushroom Veggie Burger, why can't or shouldn't you (Vegetarian Sandwich)? Chop the shrooms, chop to the finest point or pulse in the blend before making and then grilling the mushroom patties. After which into grilled burger buns (Lamb Burgers) and assembled alongside pickled onion and, as much as much, as many veggies (Gado Gado, Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup & Cucumber Yogurt Salad) and sauces as well. Anything else you are doubting?

Sichuan Noodle Soup! Yep. Obviously. The dish for the day on this particular day. Why and how and where did the recipe originate from (Sichuan Chilli Prawns)? Honestly, to tell you the truth, I did some search and popped up a couple of recipes. The popularity had to the beef version and maybe two or three to chicken as one of the main ingredients. But, like I have already told you before, beef is definitely a taboo for Indians like us and chicken is the other my other half-half won't put his mouth to. Henceforth, I made the prawn variant (Devilled Prawns, Tamarind Prawn Curry & Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry). Of course its also the usual story to using prawn heads and shells for the broth and as for the rest of ingredients (Malaysian Spicy Sour Fish Noodle Soup, Mee Rebus, Penang Assam Laksa, Bee Hoon Soup & Thai Fish Noodle Soup), whichever and whatever you feel will be in tandem for Sichuan Noodle Soup. However, crucially, for any Sichuan Noodle Soup for the matter, or most probably, the broth must be spicy (Penang Hokkien Mee)? Of course if you are asking me. Chilli paste made and tipped into the soup. Thereafter, all you got to is assemble. Yellow noodles, fish ball, prawns, lettuce leaves and broth ladled over and coriander leaves and spring onion garnished ( Malaysian Fried Mee). Tempting right?

Walla! Don't you seriously think this version, my version of Vegetarian Fried Bee Hoon is a revelation of red hue and a huge package to how a Chinese style fried bee hoon should potentially be? I don't know about you, I personally think this Vegetarian Fried Mee Hoon is an impact. Impact to my cooking invention and impact to utilising the quintessential and customary Chinese ingredients. Shouldn't I then be proud? Invention from nava-k's kitchen, of course we have already tried, tested and devoured into, furthermore, Vegetarian Fried Bee Hoon is now listed amongst the rest of the vegetarian noodle dishes I have already showcased to you (Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup, Mee Rojak Vegetarian & Curry Mee Vegetarian). Vegetarian Fried Bee Hoon - black bean paste, mushroom, cabbage, dried chilli paste, garlic and spring onion. In case you feel its a bit too much to handle, your other option can be the other Vegetarian Mee Hoon. Bye foodies, see you next time!
