Raw Spices Green Curry

This winter is probably the worst winter I have ever had... being born and brought up in tropics... my body was not made to fight this harsh weather.... so you guessed it.... I was down with cold!

I was tired of lying down and was craving for something really spicy to kick the cold virus away... So I checked my well stocked freezer and without much effort... have enough ingredients to make this delicious green curry.

And hubby had more than I did.... hmmm who is the one who needed this by the way?

Pudina Chutney (Mint Chutney)

There are many ways to make this chutney, and I like this particular recipe mainly because it does not require cooking and it is without oil, that makes it more durable in the fridge, and easier to prepare.

Not to mention that the colour is beautiful!

Masala Chai (Tea made with Spices)

Every morning, everywhere in India, on the street, at the front yard of big mansions. People sitting with a small cup in their hands. A cuppa hot Chai, chit chatting, or simply enjoying this spicy and sweet beverage---a very common drink in India, most Indian will have this tea first thing in the morning, and 2-3 times during the day!


今天还做了个印度Rajasthan有名的Mathri 香饼,和奶茶是绝配。老公吃完就乖乖做家务去了。。嘿嘿。

【印度Coorg香辣鸡块】Coorg Chicken Masala




Coorg菜系喜欢用醋入菜,可能是因为Coorgee自己酿酒也酿醋的关系。我今天做的这个Coorgee masala Chicken,做法简单,味道美味,有兴趣的朋友可以试试喔!

Coorg is also sometimes referred as the Scotland of India, it is located at the hilly area of southern India. Coorg is also very famous with its coffee farms -- also the home to many fruit trees and precious spices such as vanilla and black peppers.

I have visited a coffee farm with a small hotel years back in Coorg with my parents. The memory of sitting on the balcony of the small hotel and sipping coffee brewed from freshly grounded coffee beans while the cool breeze at night brings us the sweet smell of the coffee blossoms is one of the best memories I have for India.

The Coorgee cuisine is also very unique and interesting, due to abundant ingredients and spices available in the area. 

This Chicken Masala that I made today is one of the dishes I had in Coorg, the tartness of vinegar gives very unique flavor to the chicken and making it very appetizing.

Wat Dan Hor 【海鲜滑蛋河】

This thick rice noodle dish is my mom's all time favourite, there is a restaurant near my house that made the best Wat Tan Hor that I have ever had ......

It could be mixed with Fried vermicelli as "Yun Yong" literally means Mandarin duck, this creature always moves around as a couple... just a very Chinese way to indicate it's a combination of two... :)
