Pisang goreng cheese, or banana fritters with cheese, are ALL the rage right now in the Klang Valley. This sinfully sticky and delicious snack is simple deep fried battered bananas like we’ve always known and loved. But on top, the hot bananas get a generous shaving of creamy cheese, drizzles of honey and grated chocolate or chocolate sauce. An amazing tea time treat! More »
"Little packets of nasi lemak joy..."
A good packet of nasi lemak really gets me going in the morning. When I open a packet of nasi lemak at Kak Maimon’s, I am instantly taken by its simplicity. There’s a generous dollop of sambal, a thick cucumber slice, peanuts, ikan bilis and a halved hard-boiled egg. The sambal here is well rounded, not too sweet and not too spicy, as Goldilocks would say, the sambal is just right. It’s chunky with a deep crimson colour. Dried chillies, onions and garlic are blended and then cooked slowly for two and a half hours, allowing the aromatics to simmer and release their natural sweetness.
FriedChillies collaborated with some of the top food trucks in Klang Valley to bring NINE special dishes created just for you for the Let’s “EAT-lah” with Hong Leong Bank campaign.

After the first season
of Western Masak Sempoi (Western Made Easy), I was delighted to find out that it is one of the top shows on the FriedChillies Food Network. Simple Western cooking and food really does have a place in your hearts and stomachs.
Of course the team and I had to come out with a follow-up! After covering the basics and the usual suspects like fish and chips and steak, we checked out what else Malaysians love about Western cooking. That’s why in Western Masak Sempoi Season 2
, there’s loads more delicious and easy to make recipes like Swedish Meatballs, Buffalo Wings, Seafood Chowder and even how to make super creamy and smooth ice cream and savoury cured salmon in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Basically I just want to share some tips and tricks on how to make Western cooking simple so you too, can play ‘chef’ at home. And rest assured, I don’t use out-of-the-way ingredients and tools too. I shop where you shop: local supermarkets and pasars
. And to add on to your food knowledge I also interviewed restaurateurs and chefs for their own sure-fire tips on how to get the most out of your Western cooking.

What can be more lucky than nian gao turned cunningly into a crispy burger patty? This is served with fresh lettuce… Continue reading »
