Bakwan Jagung

Beside noodles and pasta, one of our favourite food is this small snack called bakwan jagung or corn fritters. It is quite simple to make and a good quick fix if you are running out time and got some hangry kids to feed 🙂 Bakwan Jagung/ Corn FrittersIngredients:2 sweet corncobs, remove the seeds100 gram of…

Slow Cooked Pork Belly in Soy Sauce

Last week was all about family with Chinese New Year’s vibe still lingering and perhaps because I still cannot get over the fact about how much I miss home during this celebration day. I still remember mom and dad took us to our late grandma (Ama)’s house at the farm few days (for sleep over…

Creamy Kransky Pasta

It has been awhile since my last post due to our long overdue family travel. I am now refreshed, fully recharged and although I am still adjusting to our routine after 4 weeks away from home and get pampered from our family back home , I think I am ready to share some of our…

Baby Squid in Sweet Soy Sauce

The spring is still in the air, the cool air still lingering and the kids have been taking turns to be sick (still are as I am writing this blog). I wish for the warmer weather soon so they recover quickly and we go back enjoying outdoor playtime. I cook this baby squid dish to…

Garlic & Honey Prawn

One of my favourite place to find inspiration for cooking is fish markets. It reminds me of those time when we go to local fish mongers during our visit to Dad’s prawn farm. You would see different type of fish that are not usually sold in our local supermarket. We would go home with our…

Kelepon

Back in my school days, I still remember when Mom would return from the local market (pasar) every Sunday and brought us various traditional sweets (jajanan passer) which were colourful and delicious. There are some shops or market here in Sydney if we ever crave for some. But you know how cravings work, you just want…

Simple Pasta

I understand the pleasure of cooking by watching my mom. How happy she was (and she still is), when we enjoy whatever she cooks for us. She would be sad it when food is left on our plates or we complained how not yummy or too spicy the food were. But regardless of the complain…

Sate Maranggi

We are all so glad that spring is here, finally. Has not been that much fun this winter as the kids have taken turns being sick. Nothing much happened as well in the food experiment “department” and recipes writing as all I needed to do is to give as much care and made something simple…

Bitterballen Rice

Bitterballen is Dutch influenced food, which are basically round balls made out of mince meat (either chicken, veal or beef), butter, flour (to make roux) and seasonings. But this time, instead of using flour I made them with rice. They are similar to Italian meat balls  -arancini in ingredients but also easy to make, a…
