A Brimful of Acar

Since this is chutney week, I was asked to make one. However, I feel that we've covered quite a lot of chutneys in Magnificent 7 so my sister suggested an acar. No one can quite pinpoint the difference between the two. They both use a wide variety of vegetables and fruits, sometimes are cooked or not,…  More »

Ever since I was a child, I would read cookbooks to sleep. I still do. Imagining proportions and flavours while looking at the pretty pictures in my mother's Betty Crocker cookbooks, and hoping that someday I would get a big shiny kitchen with an island counter to crank out one elegant meal after another…  More »

Pengats Galore

Generally when you come for tea at a Malay household, chances are there will be a pengat or a bubur of somekind. While bubur can encompass most things in a gravy from sweet soups to savoury congee, pengat is exclusively sweet. Generally we use pengat for something, a fruit that's been simmered in santan…  More »

I find that I make briyani when I have something to celebrate- an announcement of a wedding or a birth or just when my family gathers after a long time away. In my family, we prefer it to nasi minyak or nasi tomato. One of my Uncles love it so much that he'll eat it ' terduduk sampai mengah', sort of…  More »

I learnt how to make laksa Johor from a friend of mine named Mariam. She's of course from Johor. We used to exchange dishes for buka puasa (break of fast) during Ramadhan. Ah... the art of exchanging dishes for puasa. I wonder if people still do that. I used to have a neighbour from Terengganu and…  More »

For someone who cooks as much as I do, cookbooks are necessity. I tend to flip through for inspiration and sometimes just for a good read. The best cookbooks are the ones where the recipe tells a bit of a story, it gives us an insight into the author’s life, their cooking rituals, and the specialty…  More »

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Chef-In-Residence
Like anyone, I am not against taking short cuts in the kitchen. I might make a dough from scratch but use filling from a can- nothing wrong with that. Or I'll whip up a white sauce full of thyme and rosemary, add chicken and stuff it in a ready made puff pastry. For pumpkin pie, making it from scratch…  More »
