Mini Spring Onion Pancake 迷你葱油饼

I have a small patch of Spring onion planted in my raised bed, it has been almost 6 years, I never uproot them, I will cut only the green parts for cooking and it never failed to regrow throughout summer. They go into hibernation during the winter months and if I fertilize it well, it will come back stronger and thicker than before!

Last weekend I harvest a bunch of the spring onion and make this mini pancakes for lunch, it is crunchy on the outside and soft in the inside, we all savoured it well.

Romano Bean Potato Stew 豆角炖土豆

Romano Bean is a very common vegetable in the North Eastern part of China. It can be made into a few traditional dishes included French Bean Steamed Noodle .

I also like to stew it with little pork/chicken and potatoes, a very good one pot dish.

Stuffed Chilli 酿辣椒

I planted a Hot Banana chilli plant last summer and was endowed with a good harvest. I showed the pictures to my mother over Facetime and she said the chilies are just perfect for Chinese Stuffed Chili!

And I thought, why not?

后院的Hot Banana收成好多,妈妈看了照片说这辣椒做酿辣椒最好啦!

Fruits Rojak/Penang Rojak 水果羅惹

I made Fruit Rojak pretty often in summer, mostly for lunch when I am eating alone. I like the tangy, sweet, spicy flavor of it with refreshing fruits, extremely savory and light on the tummy.

Pecel/Pecal (Vegetable salad with Peanut Sauce) 印尼Pecal沙拉

Pecel or Pecal in Malaysia is a traditional Javanese food, a type of vegetable salad with peanut gravy, it is very nutritious and ideal for snacks and breakfast.

You can toss in some Tofu,boiled egg and Tempeh to make it high in protein, a good way to incorporate more greens into your diet.

Pecel (印尼语) 或 Pecal (马来语)是一款淋上花生酱的印尼/马来沙拉,非常美味营养,加上水煮蛋、炸酥的丹贝和豆腐干,就是一款高蛋白,高纤维的美食了。

Homemade Fruit Leather 果干卷


My son A loves fruits. His favourite snacks is fruit leather or Fruit snacks. I used to buy organic fruit snacks from the store. He goes through them so fast that it got me worried that he will be fructose overdose sometimes.

Some friends came home yesterday with their kids yesterday, I made a big fruit bowl for the kids and was left with about 1/3 of it. Since it was close to bedtime and none of us want more fruit. I blended them into a thick paste and place it into the oven to bake at low temperature. 

We have got ourselves fruit leather in the morning!

I brought home some sweet juicy peaches from the market and decided to make this delicious limeade, a perfect drink for summer afternoon!

Ayam Goreng Berempah(Malaysian Style Spiced Fried Chicken) 马来香料炸鸡

This spiced fried chicken was made last weekend to go with some steamed rice and lentil soup, my all time favorite combination. It is normally served back home with Nasi minyak or Nasi Lemak.

I made this mainly for me, hubby tasted it and loved it.  I ended up sharing a little more than half of my yummy fried chicken with him. 

这款炸鸡是我给自己做的午饭,它是椰浆饭 马来油饭很好的一个菜肴,是我自小很喜欢的一道美食。做这个炸鸡的小贩会把炸鸡时掉在油里的香料一起捞起来滴干油,这样的香料渣渣特别下饭,有的人还会特别要求小贩多给一些呢!
