According to my mum in law, hubby dislike brinjal since he was a little boy, on the contrary, I love brinjal, and could eat it in whichever way. I guess he was kinda influenced by me, and developed some liking to this beautiful vegetable...
Here is one spicy brinjal dish that hubby liked very much, especially when it is prepared to go with his beloved Kadi...

I never used to prepare mutton at home until hubby developed liking of mutton when he was in Salt lake city for a short project last year. Where one of his colleagues brought him to a place for lamb curry. He came home requesting for mutton curry.
I didn't see mutton when I shopped for groceries last week, but I found this thinly sliced mutton. So I made this Cumin Mutton instead, N finished the whole plate and asked for more!

This pau is really a result of my so-called "creativity" I was craving for some pau for breakfast and after making the fillings, realised that I have only about 1.5 cups of all purpose flour left!
And then I saw this rice flour that I bought long back still well packed, and the wheat germ I could never make enough stuff to exhaust...
To my delightful surprise, this pau turn out so well, yumm!

I made this dish for my parents in law the day before they were leaving US for India. It is quiet different than the normal Cauliflower dish we usually have.

Bread pudding is one of my favourite dessert while having guest around... I like to use the oven alot if I am having party at home, and bread pudding comes in perfect in this case, as while I serve hot dish from oven, I could straight away turn the soaked and ready bread pudding in, and once dinner is done, so is my bread pudding!
I could just serve it while it is freshly made, no reheating require... it is simply perfect!

My breakfast typically consist of a glass of milk or milo with one pau (steamed bun) or bagel or a slice of bread.
I like pau sold at the Chinese supermarket here, this week I decided I should make some healthier version at home. And here it is!

My bread machine was literally busy everyday for the past few weeks. I use it not only for bread, also chapati dough and naan dough.
It is a perfect tool for making home-made naan, this time I modify the recipe a little, adding whole wheat flour and handful of wheat germ to make it a little healthier.
We liked the out come, and so does our guest!

I am getting better with bread I guess.
Today I decided to make multigrain healthy bread, that was the whole purpose learning to make bread at home actually, to be able to make healthier bread.
Multigrain would be tougher I am sure.... I thus decided to knead the dough longer, and raise the dough at low temperature (inside the fridge) overnight. This way the yeast could work on the dough slowly and will not over ferment and make it sourish.
The result was amazing, the bread turned out so soft and taste heavenly !

I bought a bread machine recently, and I have never make any bread before, so I decided to start with the easiest... which is dinner roll, just to get a gist of bread making, and to pilot test the machine...I do not have bread flour at home, so my first dinner rolls are made from all purpose flour..

Today is the ninth day of Chinese New Year，the hokkian normally has to pray to the god of heaven (天公)，We normally buy this huat kueh for the prayer, it symbolize prosperity and growth.
I didnt quite like the colouring part of the huat kueh bought, so I found this recipe online using the natural colour from the red rice wine lees. (The remains from making red rice wine).
The house smells so good when I steamed the kueh....
