73 Pandan Coconut Cake

It's been ages since I've been here. My laptop had been broken and it was impossible for me to write from my phone. I've missed it! The good news is I have quite a few recipes awaiting to be introduced to a wider spectrum than just my partner and his work colleagues (who now are ...

66 Thai Chicken Satay

Our favourite snack when in Thailand. Widely popular in Southeast Asia, especially in Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Chicken, after being marinated in a mix of herbs and spices, becomes irresistibly soft and delicious. Add a side of a peanut sauce to highlight the flavours in the chicken. Not particularly difficult to make, takes time, that's ...

56 Tom Yum Goong (Hot and Sour Thai soup with prawns)

Sour flavour (thanks to galangal, lemongrass and lime juice) delicately sweetened by a coconut milk. I haven't found a flavour like this in any of the Western dishes. Surprisingly zingy, but how satisfying! Authentic Thai recipe, tried in ...
