What's cooking? : Part 1When I wasn't working back in March(been back to work now),I cook a lot more for my husband.Previously because my work sometimes last up until 8-9pm(depending how urgent an ad campaign is),I rarely have the time to cook for him during weekdays. Nowadays since I'm back to work, it's the same thing as well. I tend to cook 2-3 days out of the 5 working days.
The problem is that..sometimes there will be days when you tend to be blur on what to cook because you don't want to cook the same thing all the time(mine tends to be cereal/butter milk/salted egg prawn or squid).So i'm always trying out new recipes from the internet and alhamdulillah,they always turn out well.
It helps that I actually love cooking and baking.When I cook,I have to cut up all of my ingredients and put them in separate bowls/containers.I love to organize the ingredients that I'm cooking with because it's easier that way.
Also,whenever I cook dishes to go with rice,I just can't cook one dish..it just seems incomplete.I have to cook 2-3 dishes and one must have vegetables in it..or a vegetable dish.
I thought that I'd share pictures of the dishes that I've cooked recently and the names of it.Let me know which ones you're keen to know the recipe to.There'll be another post as well because I cook a lot! haha
|Left:Udang masak kunyit. Right:Daging masak merah|
So I thought,why not try and replicate the recipe.It's super easy and tastes so good.I used beef sirloin (daging batang pinang)for the dish so the beef just melts in your mouth.But I didn't use any food colouring for this dish though.When you buy it outside,they usually marinate the beef in red coloring because the name of the dish is daging masak merah(cooked red beef).

Fried tofu salad
Firm tofu --cut in thin strips & then deep fried until golden brown.
Cucumber,bunga kantan & red onion --slice them thinly/julienned
Thai cili sauce--I used Kimball's and squeezed 1 to 2 limes and mix it together for the dressing.
Layer the fried tofu on a plate.Put the sliced vegetables on top and drizzle the dressing on top.Super easy and yummy!

I loveeee cereal prawns. They're so simple to make and is very tasty! Broccoli is one of my favourite vegetable and it's so good for you.
That's the end of part 1 for you my dear readers! I'll blog about part 2 soon :)
