Spicy Prawn Masala (Eral Thokku) & Panch Phoron Recipes

Besides the staple Chinese meals, the 3 most popular cuisines my family enjoys on frequent basis are Indian, Italian and Japanese (not in order of preferences). However, when it comes to cooking Indian, Valerie still has a long way to go so the task of preparing Indian meals falls solely upon me whenever the spice … 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.

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.

Yantra – Indian Fine Dining

Without abandoning the fundamentals of North Indian cooking, Yantra has been pushing the limits of its culinary limits under Executive Chef Chintan Pandya. One example is the use of cod, an unusual ingredient in Indian cuisine. The Soma Bar is also well stocked with many alcoholic  labels. Furnished in modern chic decor, it is definitely … Continue reading

Indian Street Food – SiraJ

I could barely remember but the first time I ate Indian Rojak, it was probably in my pre-teens at Rasa Singapura Food Centre, now defunct.

The Banana Leaf Apollo – Song Of India

Hope you will enjoy them (feasting … Continue reading
