Food Featured in the Movie ‘Crazy Rich Asians’

Written by Grace Teo

Food that has us salivating in the movie ‘Crazy Rich Asians’ such as the hawker fare, the traditional and colourful sweets at Tyersall Park and the lunch at Peik Lin’s home. The array of food was featured to highlight the wonderful food culture of Singapore.

Two sessions of meetup with our community in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. We had the chance to meet and speak to wonderful people who have been supporting our work throughout our journey and had a great discussion. This is truly memorable and meaningful to us.

Who cooks on a Monday? Or do you go out to eat 😅 I always feel a bit sluggish on Mondays and love finding shortcuts by either a) cooking something I've frozen or b) finding a one-pan dish. This is recipe fulfils both requirements. I love making cabbage koftas to freeze for later use. They can be kept for weeks/months. Yuhuuu!! 🤗 Full recipe link in bio. Oh oh, and check out insta stories for the step by step to have a preview.

#nyonyatips To make this recipe even easier, use canned tomatoes instead.🍅

Red chillies or green chillies? Both of them are quite distinct in taste. They also provide different health benefits. Red chillies are said to help in burning calories (i.e. eat more chillies instead of going to the gym 😂😏) while green chillies are good in lowering high sugar levels. ⬇️ Personally, I only cook with red chillies because of its colour and spiciness. 🌶 Green chillies have a more subtle taste. What’s your preference and how do you use them?

#nyonyatips Choose chillies which are plumped, smooth in appearance and the tip of the chillies should be hard to ensure its freshness. .

Did you grow up eating this dish as well? Pong teh chicken was a childhood dish for me. My mom would always add in a few pieces of tofu puffs in this dish. That is always the best part of the dish because tofu puff soaks all the delicious gravy and it's always so much fun to eat them. I made this once for some friends and they kept raving about it. Who knew the combination of fermented salty soybeans (tau chu) along with soy sauce could be so freaking good?! 🤤 [Full recipe printable] https://www.nyonyacooking.com/recipes/pong-teh-chicken

#nyonyatips Using coconut palm sugar (gula melaka) in this dish makes it even more special. .

Onde onde or klepon? How do you call it? I love calling these the "Asian pralines". 😜 Never too sweet, just nicely sweetened with some coconut palm sugar and coated with a hint of saltiness of grated coconut. One of the easiest kuih to make! I love it when melted coconut palm sugar bursts as I chew on to it, leaving some chunks of unmelted sugar pieces. Now, that's joy! #ondeonde #klepon [Full recipe] https://www.nyonyacooking.com/recipes/onde-onde

#nyonyatips Shape the palm sugar into a ball when possible. This helps the dough to wrap around it. .

Happy Tuesday! 😜 Are you looking for another #quickstirfry recipe for your #weekdaydinner? Here's one of my many favourite zi char/dai chau/Chinese stir fry dishes, Kung Pao Mantis Prawns. Have you seen mantis prawns? To me, they remind me of some transformer looking prawns. These mantis prawns are really tasty though especially when paired with kung pao sauce. When I surprisingly found mantis prawns at my local fish store, I was beyond excited. The desire to eat mantis prawns overcame the fear to clean the prawns. 🤣 It is all about determination. You know what they say, if there is a will, there is a way!

#nyonyatips If you don't have mantis prawns, try it prawns or chicken. A good kung pao sauce will always work with rice anyway 😏 [Full recipe] https://www.nyonyacooking.com/recipes/kung-pou-mantis-prawns

That’s right! Kuih making is all about having a company. It’s just so much more fun. So, who is the ‘U’ in your kuih? Tag them to let them know 😏 #thenaskthemtomakekuihforyou ✌🏻😎
