Mala Grilled Fish

Cuisine: Chong Qing, China   |   Prep Time: 20 minutes  |  Cook Time: 40 minutes   |   Serve: 2 to 3 persons

Mala Grilled Fish – origins Chong Qing, China. Famously made with the spicy and numbing Szechuan peppercorn. Mala has been around for some time now and I got introduced to this dish by my husband who is addicted to it! During this #stayathome period we couldn’t enjoy it in a restaurant, so to fulfil his cravings I’ve made my own homemade Mala Grilled Fish or some may call it Chong Qing Grilled Fish.

It’s spicy, numbing and fragrant, you’ll be hooked!

In this weird time that the world is going through, I can’t help but think that everyone should focus on themselves and do things that they are passionate about. Spending time at home for such a long may be quite strenuous to your mental well being but do stay positive and try on new activities! Learn a new language on YouTube, try painting or a new recipe!

Here I am sharing with you a new recipe that you can do with your family or your housemates! Do it and go through it together!

‘Bergedil’ is a snack that is popular in Malaysia, Indonesia and some ASEAN countries. It is made of potatoes, minced meat and fried shallots, it’s loved by everyone and I’m sure you’ll love them too. Try it!

Weekend is here! Just got back from a holiday down under, settled down and I’am back for more cooking!  It was a good vacation driving along the Great Ocean Road, while enjoying the magnificent coastal scenery with the whole family, we shift to different airbnb houses each day, from a pleasant one to the not so pleasant stay. We definitely got it all covered. I would probably blog about my vacation there soon if anyone will be interested to read about it. Nevertheless, got the chance to catch up with some best friends and relatives in both Melbourne and Sydney.  (more…)
