Curry Pork Chop Rice

I have cooked fried pork chop for many times.

1, sprinkle salt and black pepper over pork chop.

2. Coat pork chop with flour.

3. Dip in egg.

4. Coat them with bread crumbs.

5. Deep fry till golden brown.

For the curry part, I use curry powder.

1. Add 2 tablespoon curry powder in pan.

2. Add in 1/2 cup water and 2 tablespoon honey. I used honey to make it less spicy. If you want it to stay spicy, you can add less honey.

3. Bring to boil. Then reduce to condensed.

Put fried pork chop and rice in a plate. Top rice with a fried egg. Then pour curry sauce over it.

Tom Yam Gong Soup

My husband and I had very good Tom Yam Gong Soup when we were in Bangkok. I really love it. Can’t wait to try after we come back.

I bought Tom Yam Gong paste from supermarket.

It’s a really quick soup.

1. Add 400 ml water in the pot. Add in chopped blue ginger and lemongrass. Bring to boil.

2. Add in whole pack of Tom Yam paste. Also with a little coconut milk to reduce its spiciness.

3. Stir with low heat. When boil again. Add in Prawns and straw mushroom. Simmer for several mins till Prawns are cooked.

4. Add in chopped onion, red chili, coriander and squeeze in a little lime juice. Boil for another 1-2 mins.

Serve hot.

Nice soup.

If there is any soup left, don’t throw away. Pour it over cooked noodles. Very delicious!

Pineapple Rice

I bought a whole pineapple from supermarket. Cut at the 1/3 height. Use knife and spoon to scoop the pineapple out. Set the pineapple shell aside. Cut the pineapple into small chunks.

I also used a pineapple rice paste bought from supermarket.

2. Heat a little oil in the pan. Fry the Prawn head and shell. Then discard them.

3. Sauté sausage dice and Prawn for around 3-5 mins till Prawns turn red.

4. Add in cooked rice and paste. Quickly stir fry for 2-3 mins.

5. Add in pineapple chunks and thawed vegetables ( I used frozen green peas). Stir fry for another 3 mins.

Green Curry Chicken

The green curry paste I used was bought from supermarket.

1. Heat a little oil in the pan. Add in chopped ginger and curry paste. Stir fry till aromatic.

Prepare a Christmas Feast with a King Crab

Yesterday when my husband and I were buying groceries in a supermarket, we noticed there was sale of king crab. Turkey is too big for us to have for Christmas, so a king crab sounds a good idea.

Today when I got up, the first thing I needed to do is to defreeze the king crab we bought. Then I disassembled it into several parts.

For the central body, I took the Shell off. Then picked the meat out. Heat a pan, melt a small piece of butter. Put the meat in. Sauté a bit. Add in 1 tablespoon flour. Quickly stir. Then add in 3-4 tablespoon milk. Stir slowly and evenly to let it reduce to white sauce. Put the crab meat white sauce into the shell. Sprinkle cheese. Put into oven ( 200 degree C, 8-10 mins) or till cheese melts.

Crab legs can be divided into three parts: thigh (fat end), middle parts and thin end parts.

For the fat thigh, I used them to cook spaghetti:

Heat a piece of butter in the pan. When melted, add in crab leg. Stir fry a bit. Then add in chopped garlic. Stir till aromatic. Pour in a little white wine. Simmer a little. Season with salt and black pepper. Add in chopped parsley and cooked spaghetti. Quickly stir evenly.

For the middle crab leg parts, I roast them with garlic butter. Put a small chunk of butter in a bowl. Add in chopped garlic, a little salt and pepper. Blend well. Cut half the shell off ( or even less). Then spread garlic butter onto meat. Put into oven. 180 degree C and 20 mins.

For the thin ends, I cut them into smaller pieces. Marinate with a little cooking wine and corn starch. Heat a little olive oil in the pan. Put the crab leg pieces in. Stir fry for 2-3 mins. Add in chopped ginger and spring onion. Quickly stir fry. Add in a little cooking wine, light soy sauce and oyster sauce. Quickly blend evenly and serve hot.

For the claws, I used them to cook light soup. Put crab claws, corn pieces, Chinese yam, mushroom, ginger shreds and spring onion pieces into a pot. Pour in 1 1/2 bowls of water. Turn to high heat. When water boils, put in salmon slices. Turn to middle heat and cook for 3 mins. Add in 1 tsp sweet cooking wine and salt. Cook for another minute.

And that’s it. Our Christmas feast made by a king crab.

Merry Christmas everyone!

No-failure Oven Roasted Chicken

I tried it several days ago and my husband loved it.

First, prepare marinade. In a sauce pan, add in several ginger and garlic slices. Pour in 50 ml cooking wine and 100 ml light soy sauce. Add in 3 tablespoon sugar and bay leaves. Turn on the stove and heat it till sugar melted. Then turn off the stove and set it aside.

For the chicken, here I used a half chicken. Use a toothpick to poke it several times so that marinade can work better.

Put chicken in a zip bag or a container. Pour the marinade in. Give it a good massage. Then put the lid on and put into fridge for overnight or even longer like one day or two days.

When it’s ready to cook, preheat oven to 190 degree C. Bake for 40 mins.

You can wrap the chicken wing with aluminum foil to prevent it getting burnt. ( I should’ve done that earlier).

Lemon Prawn

It’s a very simple dish to cook.

Prepare sauce: 50g lemon juice, 50g sugar and a little black pepper powder. Mix them well.

Clean Prawns and prepare some chopped garlic and green onion.

1. Heat some oil in the pan. Put the Prawns in. Stir fry till Prawns turn pink.

2. Add in chopped garlic and fry till aromatic.

3. Pour the sauce in. Turn up the heat a little. Quick stir fry to let each Prawn be coated with sauce.

4. Sprinkle chopped green onion as garnishment. Quick stir and ready to serve.

The Prawns are very bright and shiny in color due to the lemon sauce. And it tastes very tender and juicy. You will not stop licking your fingers. My husband loved it.

Cocoa Brownie

One day, my husband chose a pack of Starbucks cocoa when we bought groceries in a supermarket. He was super excited because he kept thinking about a warm and yummy cup of cocoa. He immediately made himself a cup of hot cocoa when we reached home. Yet….he found it’s not as yummy as he thought. He always does things like that. At first he’s very excited and can’t wait to buy something but finds it’s not as good as he thought. =_=||

My principle is no wasting food in my kitchen. So I decided to make cocoa into brownies. And my husband is happy because he will feel less guilty in buying something he doesn’t like.

Oh. I found the recipe here:

best cocoa brownies


Ingredients:

Butter 140g

Sugar 250g ( if you want it to be less sweet, you can reduce the sugar)

Cocoa powder 65g

Salt 1/4 tsp

Vanilla extract 1/2 tsp

Eggs 2

Flour 65g
Preheat oven to 160 degree C.

1. Combine butter, sugar, cocoa powder & salt in a bowl. Place the bowl in simmering water. Stir till smooth.

2. Set aside to cool down.

3. Add in vanilla and beat in eggs. Mix them well.

4. Add in flour and mix till just combined.

5. Pour batter into baking pan.

6. Bake for 20-25 mins. ( because I used my round shaped baking pan and it’s smaller than the size in original recipe. So it took me longer to get done, about 30-35 mins.)


Very moist and yummy. I love it.
