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!

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!

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…)

Homemade Pan Mee

 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.

  Breakfast   |   Prep time: 5 minutes   |   Cook time: 15 minutes   |   Serve: 1 persons.

Want to have a good start to a good day? Have a good breakfast! There is nothing better than having a good meal to start your day. Since I woke up early today, I thought I could do some simple cooking. It really doesn’t take much time and effort. I wouldn’t even call this a recipe because there is basically nothing fancy just salt and pepper and 3 main ingredients. It’s that simple and easy. Plus you can always hype it up with more stuff, like sausages, hams, a toast, anything that would satisfied your empty stomach in the morning. I was still in my pajamas when I was cooking this. Hence, this will be a short and simple post.
