Biryani Recipe (Part 2) – Spiced Rice Is Nice!

The difference between Biryani and Pulao (Pilaf in English) is that in pulao, the Basmati rice is usually cooked in the meat/vegetable seasoned broth. Depending on the local cuisine, pulao may also contain dried fruits, fish, meat and vegetables. Overall, pulao uses lesser amount of spice mix as compared to a biryani dish and the … Continue reading

Biryani Recipe (Part 1) – Chicken Masala

Ever since the visit to our local fishery port, I have lots of fish in my freezer. Hee had requested Indian-styled fried fish this night, and it would be my first attempt at cooking it. Vanessa, “I want the biryani you cooked for us in Melbourne.” It’s been 4 years since I’ve cooked biryani but … Continue reading

Ministry Of Rojak By Abdhus Salam Rojak

We had Penang food for lunch that afternoon and looking around, I was amused by a signboard “Ministry of Rojak”. I had thought the shop to be selling music CDs (somehow the name brought to mind, Ministry of Sound) or different types of salad since rojak, to me, means “chap pa lang” (a bit of … Continue reading

The Roti Prata House

The Roti Prata House is always packed during late night and especially the weekends for those craving for *southern Indian street food cuisine. How do I know? That’s because I’ve witnessed it first hand on the few occasions I went there after my macro sessions since it is opened 24 hours during the weekends. The … Continue reading

Sungei Lembing Trip – Part 2

We continued our journey to Sungei Lembing and Michael, our tour leader who is also a master street photographer, informed that lunch and toilet break would be in another 2 hours or thereabout when we arrived in Pahang.

Nana Teh Tarik @ Killiney Road

It was about 2am in the morning when Vanessa came in to ask if I wanted to join them for supper. “What are you going to have?” “Roti prata.” “At Upper Bukit Timah?” I was thinking that that was the only 24 hours operating place near our house. The other at River Valley was nearby … Continue reading

Everton Food Place

I am having tremendous fun in Project X (the job I’ve recently taken on) and acquiring lots of new photography and post processing technique along the way. I am back in “school” again but this time, the learning institution is more modern; not confined to a classroom, accessible any time and you can even choose … Continue reading

Muthu’s Curry @ Race Course Road

Ryan: “Oh my gosh, I want Indian!” Me: “Thai or Indian?” Valerie: “Aiyah, anything Asian.” Ryan: “Indian!” You must be baffled! But let me assure you we are not human trafficking, lol… It all started with a tantalising picture some bloggers might hashtag as foodporn! Vanessa’s lunch on 24 Buffalo Road in Little India was … Continue reading

Tickle Your Taste Buds @ Indian Curry House

We’ve passed by Indian Curry House located on Sixth Avenue many times and have always wanted to try the restaurant food. Maybe, it’s the hour we happened to travel (late nights), the place seemed lacking of customers. Perhaps, that was the subconscious reason we never got down to making a purposeful trip to eat there. … Continue reading
