Baigan Choka (Roasted Eggplant)

I really love the special flavour this mashed eggplant carries, the way it was prepared brings a very distinct flavour and I had a lot of fun preparing it....

Mixed Lentil Soup (Dal Tadka)

Dal is a staple dish in most Indian families and is generally eaten with rice or rotis (Indian flat-bread). Lentils are also a good source of protein.

Since I have many types of lentils and pulses at home, I liked to mixed them up and cook, it is nutritious and tasty!

Bak Kut Teh 【药膳】肉骨茶

I bought a bunch of Bak Kut Teh herbs this time around when I visited Malaysia. 

I came back and gave it out to many of my friends as souvenir, I later came to realised that what comes so natural to me as a Malaysia may be a puzzle to others.

My friends don't know how to make Bak Kut Teh! So here it is the recipe for them.

Mint Tea 【薄荷茶】

This was made during the peak of summer. It was more than 90 F today and I had absolutely no appetite for anything. I walked out to my garden during hot afternoon. Clipped a few stems of sweet peppermint to make this mint tea, and sweetened with honey. 

With a good book at hand... my afternoon is just perfect !
