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 ✌🏻😎

Tag someone who you’d love having satay party with! The weather is great for grilling. Love having some satay and homemade peanut sauce (no peanut butter please 😱). Lots of great spices! Easy to prepare for a large group too. As a child, I would bite on to the meat and use all my energy to pull the skewer away from the meat. This would result in scratches on my right cheek because the pointy part of the skewer would scratch my face as I pull it off. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Don’t eat satay like me!

#nyonyatips I used chicken breasts for this recipe but try it out with chicken thighs with some skin and fats. That was a life changer! So succulent and delicious. Full recipe on www.nyonyacooking.com and in bio

Happy Monday! Mondays should go by quickly like frying #papadums 😅 Well, they do sometimes curl up unexpectedly and if you don't have anything in hand to hold it down quickly enough, it will look a little crazy. That doesn't matter though. The only thing that matters is the way you deal with it. Although looking a little whacky, papadums can still be enjoyed - any way you'd like it!  Let this be a productive week for everyone! 💪🏻🔥#deeptalkswithpapadums #papadumsmotivation
.
Psst...I have written tips to fry perfect papadums using wooden chopsticks. Not plastic chopsticks ok! Look them up here: https://www.nyonyacooking.com/recipes/fried-papadum We all need to have wooden chopsticks at home! Don't you agree? .

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. .
