Stir-fried bitter gourd with minced chicken

Posted in Chinese, Quick and Easy | No Comments »

I recently bought a new recipe book by Primarasa called Tumis Sayuran 15 Menit. The recipes in this book is quite easy and suitable for an amateur cook like me, plus it’s amazingly quick to cook. So, today I tried this bitter gourd recipe for lunch. I love bitter gourd and I usually made an omelette out of it. The result is delicious and SC loved it, so I think I’m going to try some other recipes & post the results here (when I’m not too lazy/sleepy to write after cooking & eating).

Spaghetti with Peas and Zucchini Ribbons

Posted in Italian, Noodle and Pasta, Quick and Easy, Vegetarian | 1 Comment »

Found this recipe in this month’s Martha Steward Living magazine, It’s quite interesting as it uses neither garlic/onion nor olive oil and uses plain yogurt for the sauce instead. As we’re lazy to go out in the rainy afternoon, I cooked this for dinner. The result is a light pasta dish, not as savory as when I use onion with bacon, but it was satisfying. :)

Posted in Indian, Indonesian, Rice | No Comments »

As today is Ied Mubarak, I was browsing for an easy Lebaran dish to try but couldn’t find one. So I decided to make Indonesian style yellow rice (nasi kuning) and Indian style chicken curry for our lunch today. I substituted the coconut milk with plain yogurt. Turned out the recipe I used was quite spicy :)

Ginger rice with chicken and leek

Posted in Japanese, Rice | 2 Comments »

I love savory rice, so when I saw V’s post on her blog: Pork and leek over ginger rice, I decided to make it for lunch. The instructions are quite easy. I ran to the supermarket to buy some ginger, leeks and chicken (couldn’t find pork, so I substitute it with chicken breast). The result was a very fragrant rice and the chicken works well with leeks. It was a delicious lunch. Thanks V. :)

Buta No Shogayaki

Posted in Japanese | 3 Comments »
Last weekend, we stopped by Papaya supermarket for some grocery shopping. In the meat section, I saw several packs of finely sliced pork labeled shogayaki. I remembered reading a recipe called shogayaki in my Japanese Homestyle Cooking cookbook. So I bought a pack and attempted to make Buta no Shogayaki, which is actually just a simple ginger fried pork. It’s simple and easy to make, and the result is delicious & satisfying. I didn’t follow the recipe religiously as I was not sure I should put 1 cup of sugar in the marinade sauce, so I just figured out the proportion myself.

Croque Monsieur

Posted in French, Quick and Easy | No Comments »
Ever since I watched It’s Complicated, I became interested in making the croque monsieur (French ham & cheese grilled sandwich) myself. I heard it was easy to make and if I were to eat one at a French cafe/bistro It will surely be expensive. So I googled for the recipe online and found several variations in making the dish. I decided to choose the simplest one from here and modified it a bit to suit what I have in my fridge. I made this for breakfast and it was a very fulfilling dish. :)

Stewed Ginger Chicken

Posted in Chinese, Soups | 3 Comments »
I found this recipe in Periplus’s Taiwanese Favorites Mini Cookbook. The recipe looks easy enough and it uses plenty of rice wine and sesame oil in the stewing sauce and lots of ginger as seasoning. I tried it and it resulted in a very delicious, fragrant chicken. The cookbook noted that a more traditional way to cook the dish is using 5 cups of wine and no water to produce a much stronger tasting broth.

Minced Pork Congee

Posted in Chinese, Quick and Easy, Rice | 2 Comments »
One of my favorite childhood breakfast is minced pork congee which I usually bought at a stall in front of a kopitiam near my parents house. Since I live in Jakarta, it was very hard to find the same congee whenever I craved for it. Once I’ve found it in a kopitiam at Teluk Gong, but on my next visit, they seller had moved. So this morning, I tried to make it for breakfast. I once tried to make this congee using rice cooker, which ended up a disaster :) So this time, I make it using a soup pot. It was quite easy and I didn’t follow the exact recipe, I just add water whenever I felt the congee is too thick :)

Braised tofu with spinach and mushrooms

Posted in Chinese, Vegetarian | 5 Comments »
I first saw this dish at Cilantro restaurant years ago. They named it tahu nenek moyang. It was delicious and quite pricey. Since then I began looking for this kind of dish whenever we went to Chinese restaurants. There are many variations for the name, some restaurants even called this dish ‘XXX restaurant tofu special’. One day, when I dined with SC parents, I asked her mother about the recipe and I promised myself that I’m going to make it some day.
This is supposed to be my weekend project, but I was too lazy to cook last (long) weekend. As I was afraid that the ingredients might gone bad, I tried to make it this morning before going for work. Turned out, it required about 45 minutes to cook. As I ‘m running very late for work, I left all the dirty dishes to SC. I hope he finds the taste well worth the effort :)

Stir Fried Pork with Basil

Posted in Quick and Easy, Thai | 1 Comment »
Whenever I go to the supermarket, I always look for basil in the vegetables section. I love to cook basil with chicken/pork and I think all dishes made with basil addition tasted delicious. This recipe of Thai pork basil (Pad gkaprow mu) originally require Thai holy basil, but since I can’t find it, I just use regular sweet basil. Recipe was modified from ‘Thai Home Cooking’ cookbook :)
