Do you love soups? I LOVE SOUPS! But wait, just Asian soups or broths actually. (Not a big fan of creamy soups 😝) Asian soups aren't only flavourful but light and fun. It is all about the variety of ingredients in them! This is "rasam", a South Indian soup which uses tamarind as the base. Took me less than 5 minutes to prepare and it only needed to be simmered for 20 minutes. Especially when the weather is cold, rasam is like a warm blanket. #doyouknowhatimean? Did you know that rasam is also known to have many health benefits? Rich in antioxidants, vitamin C and helps to promote digestions. Hmm...maybe we need rasam as health supplements soon? 🤣

Little handmade bowl/cup by @hartmudstudio, once again! So, I've shared a lot about my journey and my experience with their tableware. I am actually most amazed by @hartmudstudio's burning passion to craft ceramic tableware that will change the way people cook and eat. Due to blind consumerism, we no longer question the source of products we buy or even understanding traditions. To make better food decisions, we first need to be practising conscious cooking and eating. .

Snake gourd, one of those very interesting vegetables and it has an outlook appearance like a snake. Have you seen them? I’m lucky to be able to find them here. I love chewing on to these spiced crispy vegetables. Whenever I am at a banana leaf rice restaurant, I will always top it up - twice! If you cannot find snake gourd, bitter gourd or okra can be used as substitutes. #nyonyatips to make the perfect fried snake gourd, you need to slice them evenly, have the right temperature and have enough patience.

This beautiful little handmade cup is also from @hartmudstudio! I have always been on the lookout for pretty ceramics around me and have a soft spot for Nordic designs. They are clean, simple and yet so classy. That was what I saw in their work. I cycled for around an hour to get to their studio and my heart skipped a beat as I walked into their beautiful workplace. The image of beautiful ceramics which I had in my mind for months came to live! I wish more justice to be given made as the cup is simply gorgeous. I wish you can see their work and touch them in your own hands. .

The series of banana leaf rice is complete! 🤩 The recipes are super easy. I mean, this stir-fried cabbage with turmeric takes only 8 minutes to cook. For sure it is also a great option for after work dishes. IF you are willing to take up the challenge and make Banana Leaf Rice this weekend, I have all the tips, directions and even the sequence on which recipe to attempt first in this article or visit link in bio: https://www.nyonyacooking.com/magazine/banana-leaf-rice

I just love the colours in this photo. Bright and strong. If you take a closer look, we also used a special bowl! For our banana leaf rice series, we used special bowls and plates from @hartmudstudio. Personally, I have a crazy obsession with dining ware and kitchenware which are not only of quality but also tells a story. I'll share more about my encounter with them but first, please comment to let me know that I am not the only one having this obsession. 🙌🏻

The sun is shining here! Such lovely weather calls for barbecue recipes. 🤤 while I really love Malaysian grilled fish (ikan bakar), I will never say no to one of my favourite meat recipes - Char Siu. Whose is also a Char Siu fan? 🤛🏻#CharSiu is dreams coated with honey 🤣 The marinade is a mixture of sauces and honey which is also used as the glaze. A great balance of sweet and savoury! .
#nyonyatips The best cut to get for this recipe is the pork butt but not 🍑 check out the website to read more about what’s pork butt. If you don’t eat pork, try the recipe with chicken. I’ve heard many successes of this recipe with succulent chicken breast too! .

The world has been watching Malaysia in the last few days. The victory of @chedetofficial proved the democratic power of the people (rakyat) to change the people’s destiny. It also marks a new era of hope for all Malaysians. For those who do not know much about Malaysian politics, the opposition coalition won the recent elections over the party which has ruled Malaysia for the past 60 years, ever since we gained independence. So, this is history!
.
I’ve been receiving lots of congratulatory DMs although they do not know much about the politics in Malaysia. In the recent years, Malaysia has been out in the news for all the wrong reasons. Kleptocracy, corruption, murder and more. This is not just another political news far far away in Asia because the money was spent around the world. The production company behind the film “Wolf of Wall Street”, Mirinda Kerr and Leonardo DiCaprio were some names who were reported to have somehow benefited from 1MDB, a Malaysian sovereign wealth fund. Anyway, our Prime Minister promised to restore the rule of law and we are all very excited for the new Malaysia. Fun fact: @chedetofficial was also our 4th Prime Minister and he is 93 years old. Yes, 93. He is wittier than you and I! .
As a Malaysian living abroad, I proudly tell others about the recent election news in Malaysia and people have been telling me that they wish for the same in their upcoming election. Shall there be a change of government, it should be a PEACEFUL change of power as how we are experiencing in Malaysia. I truly wish the same for them. If there is one thing we can learn from this is “Sepakat kita kuat, berpecah kite rebah” (United we stand, divided we fall)
. 
Many Malaysians shared on @nyonyacooking Facebook account that they ate/made Nasi Lemak to celebrate the victory. I’m definitely having some too, homemade of course. What about you? How did you celebrate?
