Spicy Chicken Pot

Cuisine: Chinese  |   Prep Time: 40 minutes  |  Cook Time: 30 minutes   |   Serve: 2 to 3 persons

Have you tried Spicy Chicken Pot? It’s considered a fairly new dish (few years) with the ever-growing Szechuan style hot pot and this is one of them. In my opinion, this dish is a combination of the Mala and oyster sauce flavour which quickly became one of my favourites. Here is a simplified version of the Spicy Chicken Hot Pot that you too can try making!

 Cuisine: Hakka, Chinese   |   Prep Time: 40 minute   |   Cook Time: 30 minutes   |   Serve: 4-5 persons

Craving for some homemade Pan Mee! When the family wants Pan Mee, just mention about it and MamaCook will make it. Since now I am living away from home I got to find my own way in satisfying my craving. Making this Pan Mee turns out pretty simple and easy. To my surprise it doesn’t require much of a skill. I did rang MamaCook to make sure I am on the right track and portion wise she just told me to eye ball it and I did. The measurement for the recipe below may or may not be accurate. My advice is to just let the inner Cook of you shine and do the job.

Valentine's Day Steak Recipe

Cuisine: Western   |   Prep time: 30 minutes   |   Cook time: 20 minutes   |   Serve: 2 persons.

Valentine’s Day is here! It wouldn’t be official without a nice meal together with your partner, but these ‘nice meals’ would usually cost a bomb on this special day. Even flowers on this day are twice the price of what you would get on any other day. To be honest, having a nice meal doesn’t mean you need to splurge on some fancy restaurant. Just spare some time and effort. Cooking with love is something that your partner would definitely appreciate, which is much better than blindly hurting your bank account.

This recipe for Valentine’s Day is simple and yet impressive. However, if you still feel like splurging on the love of your life, you may consider whipping up this meal for them on their birthday or your anniversary instead. As usual, there are no fancy ingredients. Everything is pretty easy to find at your most convenient supermarket.
