Prawn and Tomato Curry

by · 2 comments
My family loves curry dishes very much. This prawn and tomato curry dish tastes divine. Tomato goes so well with curry. Its natural acidity just balances the salty and mildly hot curry.

Prawn and Tomato Curry01

This dish mainly makes use of the spices and fish sauce as a base. Beware that the saltiness of fish sauce is very different from brand to brand. If you’re using a different brand from mine, make sure you taste along the way of your cooking and add bit by bit of it until you’ll get the taste you want.

This prawn curry dish can be made on the go, perfectly pair with a bowl of steamed rice.

Chinese Yam Goji and Pork Ribs Soup

Chinese yam (huáishān 淮山 in Chinese) is quite often used in making soups. It helps to lower blood sugar and cholesterol, revive our appetite and contains antioxidants.

I love adding some goji berries as they’re good for eye health. So this Chinese yam and goji soup is so nourishing.

Tastewise, it’s very delicious. You can see the recipe below that pork bones, several red dates and dried scallops are added to create a depth of flavours. Give it a try. Your family will like this soup as much as we do.

Baked Honey Lemon Chicken Drumsticks01

What we loved about these baked chicken drumsticks is their juicy and succulent meat with tasty lemon and honey sauce.

No matter tucking in with our clean hands or knife and fork, we felt the finger lick'n drumsticks are so good.

To make this dish, either for your family or party finger food, it won’t be wrong at all. One side note, either thawed (if frozen) or fresh drumsticks can be used to make this delicious dish.

The taste of this satay chicken is so authentic and wonderfully delicious. The recipe was from a friend who was a chef in Malaysia. How could it be?

Stir-fried Prawns with Eggs (滑蛋蝦仁)

by · 19 comments
This homey dish, Stir-fried Prawns with Eggs is very popular in Chinese restaurants. It's so quick and easy to make at home. Best of all, it's absolutely tasty.

Fried Prawns with Eggs01

The prawns/shrimps used must be very fresh. Although I can’t find any live prawns here, the frozen, raw ones are still good for making this dish.

This dish is like cooking scrambled eggs with prawns. Both of the smell and taste of the eggs with prawns are so good and tempting. No wonder many Chinese people love this dish.

This dish looks simple and easy to make. But frying smooth and silky eggs needs some practices and experiences. Is there any trick to help?

Pumpkin Dumplings with Purple Yam (南瓜湯圓)

Way back to my childhood, my mum used to make us some dumplings during Chinese New Year.

Pumpkin Dumplings01

I love sipping the hot, gingery sweet soup, then with a bite of chewy glutinous rice dumplings. The melted sugar inside each dumpling adds more adventurous fun in tasting.

Pumpkin Dumplings02

Here’s my recent version of dumplings for Chinese New Year incorporated more vibrant colours. The bright orange pumpkin meat helps to make the dumplings look even more inviting. I experimented with adding purple sweet potato (aka purple yam), it turned out to be one of my favourite Chinese desserts.

Stewed Chicken Wings with Chestnuts

Ever tried this popular homey Chinese dish? The chicken wings absorb all the flavours and they are really tasty.

栗子炆雞翼 Stewed chicken wings with chestnuts

Stewed chickens with chestnuts is quite popular in Hong Kong and a typical Cantonese home-cooking dish. It’s hard to describe how delicious this dish is.

In Australia, we don’t often have fresh chestnuts available. Luckily, I found fresh chestnuts were on sale at a nearby supermarket.

Frankly speaking, this dish is quite easy to cook except the job of cracking the nuts and removing the papery skin. There are some frozen chestnuts without any skins available at Asian grocery stores if you would like to save time on cracking the nuts. Very handy.
