Yeaaa...how do I end a video when I'm eating something so delicious? πŸ€”πŸ€£ like when you're eating something while enjoying every bite and something just came in between to disturb the moment....it's a serious issue I tell you! #firstworldproblems The #chillipanmee video has been a hit! Thank you guys πŸ’ƒπŸ»have you watched, liked and shared it? All on nyonyacooking.com πŸ”₯🌢🍜
Made some wheat noodles the other day and the next recipe will be based on them. The reveal is soon! So close, and yet so far. Last few steps before we will release the video. But...let's take a guess. Which recipe will come up next? 😝 Ohhh thinking about it makes me crave for the dish, again...and again...
Homemade fried shallots are the best! Very easy to prepare BUT you need to follow the tips 😏 They are all for you on nyonyacooking.com πŸ€— you also get to add some really delicious aroma to your meals using shallot oil. So, how do you like to enjoy fried shallots? I love them especially in porridge! Piping hot chicken porridge with some spring onions and fried shallots sprinkled on top. Ohhh yum yum!

Oh my...I haven't been posting much lately but my insta stories have been pretty active, especially insta live! It's so much fun to talk to ya'll and to know that we have a big community out there. 🌎 makes me a little proud to know that Malaysian food is getting its name, slowly but surely! Terms like
Need a quick dish to prepare? This is the one for you. Vegetables and meat, all in a plate. Sometimes, I will prepare Mapo tofu with extra shiitake mushroom and skip the meat for a meatless meal. Tasty, fast and delicious. Oh, and vegan if you want. There were lots of discussions on this dish on YouTube because it did not have Sichuan peppercorns. You can of course add it to the recipe as you like but I'm not a big fan of Sichuan peppercorns in Mapo Tofu (unfortunately 😣) as it has a numbing effect in the mouth and that feels so weird!!! What about you?
Last week was a crazy fun week! Thanks to the fantastic arrangement by @jre_deutschland, I had a wonderful gourmet experience and I hope, it inspired you to indulge in a little food journey yourself! I always complained how Germany was always lacking in love and soul when it comes to food but this journey certainly changed my mind. Although it was the frustration that initiated me to produce cooking/food videos every now and then, today I am even more inspired to do more and hopefully combine what I have learned from the chefs at @jre_deutschland in my own cooking. All these while, producing online content was never a job but more like a hobby. We never had any schedule or never really felt the β€œneed” to produce any videos according to a strict schedule. It was all for the community and well, I’d be honest, it makes us happy to know that we brought smiles to homes especially to those who are abroad, far away from home - like me. Slowly but steadily, the community started to grow. I spent lots of time replying to each and every comment and emails. Unfortunately, I am not able to do so now, at least not so often as it takes up so much time but I promised myself to at least reply to all the comments in my latest videos in the first week and as many emails as possible. I would like to thank you for contacting me all these while, sharing your stories on food, kitchen, travel and aspirations! Sometimes, even asking me for tips on time management, career development and sometimes, relationships (family and partners).
Nyonya Cooking will continue producing content on food and everything around it. I will share food experiences on Insta Stories and Facebook even more. If you came this far to read this and are interested in career, motivational and inspirational content, check out @thegraceteo. .
