Kulcha/Onion Kulcha 【印度Kulcha发面饼】


I used to make Homemade Naan a lot at home, we loved it when we have guests at home or when I make our favorite curry dishes. 

At times when I don't feel like starting the oven for naan, I make this Kulcha on stove top cast iron pan. It is also another very versatile and delicious bread, it could be served plain, or stuffed with stuffing of your liking, which I did, with onion today.


平时如果我不想开烤箱的话,我也会做这款Kulcha 发面饼,也非常松软好吃,还可以加上各种馅料做馅饼,今天用这个食谱做了两款面饼,其中一款加了洋葱,更美味。

【印度王后炖豆】Dal Maharani

这道“王后炖豆” 名字其实有点哗众取宠,它是相对印度另外一款很有名的炖菜“奶香炖杂豆Dal Makhni”而言取的名字。


Dal Maharani is a close relative to another famous Indian lentil stew "Dal Makhni". Generally speaking, Makhni stew is considered a royal delicacy, and is often served at festive or celebrations time. 

Dal Maharani literally means "The queen's lentil stew", it is probably named as such in comparison to the famous Dal Makhani, though very similar, Dal Maharani has its own distinct flavor and is simpler in terms of ingredients and preparation.

【马来大虾绿咖喱】Gulai Udang

这款“绿咖喱” 其实马来语叫Gulai,和一般香料用得很多的咖喱不太一样。它用的都是生鲜香草调味,口味上也趋于清淡,是简单又健康的一款佳肴。

This  Malaysian "green curry" is actually called Gulai in Malay. Which is different from the many common curries that most people are used to. 

It is prepared with mostly fresh herbs and tends to be lighter in texture. It is a simple and healthy delicacy that goes well with rice.

Vegetarian Fruit Rojak/White Fruit Rojak 【素食/白水果羅惹】

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.

Today I made this Fruit Rojak the vegetarian version without using the shrimp paste, adding yeast extract make it all the more nutritious!

【红豆沙】Adzuki Bean Paste



Adzuki bean paste is one of my favorite fillings for desserts, I often make a box of it and keep in the refrigerator, which is very convenient when I needed it.

I sometimes also make the bean paste without grinding it into paste. The method is similar to making the paste, just omit the step of blending the bean into a paste before stir frying.
