Braised Trotter with Mee Suah




As I have some braised pig trotter, I made this Mee Suah for lunch, this thin noodle is traditionally consumed in the southern part of China-- The Fujian Province, and widely used as cooking ingredients in Taiwan  Singapore & Malaysia.

This dish is to be eaten for good luck in Taiwan, normally after something bad happened, or when one wishing for luck, so now, lets all get some good luck!

Braised Trotter with Tofu Knots




I bought two trotters thinking of making soy soup -- the famous Chinese lactogenic food, with just one attempt and took me 2 days to finish one pot of soup, I just can't think of having the same soup again !

So the remaining trotter pieces was made into this dish with my favorite tofu knots, the tofu knots taste way better than the meat after soaking up all the gravy !

Peda/Pheda/Pera -- Indian Milk Fudge



Sweets is part of celebration in Indian culture, we used to buy sweets from "Methai Shop", you could choose different kind of sweets and they charge by the weight, last few years I have made it a point to make at least 1-2 types of sweets at home for the celebration.

This peda is one of them this year, not to mention that it was over wayyyyy before diwali!!!

【香蕉炸糕】Mashed Banana Fritter (Cucur Pisang/Cekodok Pisang)



念小学的时候爸爸每天会给我四毛钱的零用钱,每天学校早休的时候,我就会花两毛钱买糕点吃,这个香蕉炸糕是我经常买的一款糕点,我还清楚的记得,两毛钱可以买五颗乒乓球那么大的炸糕。

香香糯糯的总吃不够。这款糕点是家里过熟香蕉的好去处喔!还非要特熟的香蕉才能做出好吃的香蕉炸糕呢!

I used to get 40 Cents for pocket money everyday when I attended primary school. Back then 40 cents is good enough for a kid to buy morning snacks and some tidbits.

One of my favorite snacks to buy during school days is this Cucur Pisang, a Malaysian version of Banana fritter.

It is pretty easy to make it at home, a good way to use overripe banana beside baking into banana bread!
