Panner With Spinach Wanton (Dumplings)

Image
Panner With Spinach Wanton (Dumplings) Have you never  imaged of preparing wantons or dumplings with panner? Anyway "Chinese dumplings are probably one of the most convenient and versatile foods to keep around". Out from the freezer to your dining table in a second. You can pan fry/boil /deep fry or steam for healthy version.A steaming bowl of won tons is always welcome in any season, and making them at home is a fairly easy process. Purchase a package of high-quality won ton skins, which are available everywhere, and then it’s just a matter of filling and folding them. Once they hit boiling water they cook for just 2 minutes. The filling — usually a simple mixture of well-seasoned minced meat — may be prepared hours ahead and chilled. This somewhat spicy chicken and shrimp filling is particularly delicious, with plenty of ginger and Chinese garlic chives or even your own creation with the Indian touch. Be amazed by the versatility of wanton wrappers. Keep a pack handy in you…

Orange Peel Pickles

Orange Peel Pickle When cooking becomes a daily chore we tend to lose our passion in kitchen or feel that our skills have vanished. Fatigue, boredom and lack of ideas can easily contribute to an over sense of demotivate. Before we knew it,we will be eating the same bland food day-in-and day out. Recently we have being addicted to watch "Choped"- a cooking challenge where the contestants will be give secret ingredients and have to wrap up a meal using all the ingredients given.The challenge itself look pretty fun and are very broad,allowing one to run wild with your imagination and really push something special out of the box. Out of curiousness causally my hubby said  since I love to try out new recipes- I should try my creativeness prepare a dish at home in the same concept.The kids got very excited and joined in with their dad's idea of preparing "Chopped " challenge at home and I was told to prepare a dish using "Orange Peel, Coconut Oil and Pink Salt&qu…

Chicken Dumpling And Fish Ball Soup Noodles

I always said I consider myself pretty lucky that I grew up in a household that was filled with good cooks. So now as much as my dad  did cook, there were still nights off from the kitchen. At some point in time, Sunday nights turned into Chinese food takeout night.  Not every week mind you but I’d say a good portion of my childhood was spent at my local Chinese restaurant looking over the menu to see what we’d be ordering that night.I’m so spoiled by this and now my kids esp my son follows my footstep- A non stop complain from husband- "Mother like Son"!!!  Alike mine and soul always have the same craving -that's natural  I guess!! no point in complaining.

About two years or so I joined a Facebook group  called- "Singapore Home Cook". I have being following all  their updates daily and recently I came across recipes on soup noodles being posted with mouthwatering snaps.

Salt And Pepper Shrimp With Garlic

Salt And Pepper Shrimp With Garlic

I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned how much I and my daughter looooooove shrimp. Being a very fussy eater till now-the only way I can make her finish up her plate in no time- Shrimp will do the trick not forgetting that I too go crazy when its comes to" Shrimp".
Crispy, salty, slightly spicy…what’s not to like?  You’re definitely going to get a bunch of oooh’s and ahhh’s at the table when salt and pepper shrimp is being served. Salt and pepper prawns are a traditional Cantonese dish that make a beautiful and spicy appetizer.  No need to head out to your local Chinese restaurant anymore, 
Finally you can make your very own salt and pepper prawns.  You’ve got an awesome dish to eat on the side of something else of your choice – noodles, rice, vegetables and so forth.  Give it a try and see what you think – you won’t be disappointed!
Ingredients Serving Size: 4 Persons
2 pounds large prawns, peeled, deveined  2 tbsp cornstarch 1 tsp ground white pepper …

There are so many ingredients you can add to eggs, so what are you waiting for? Eggs are a super nutritious food chock-full of protein, choline, Vitamin D and lots of other nutrients you need for good health.They’re also fast and easy to prepare so you can have a healthy meal in minutes. I normally like to whip up some scrambled eggs for breakfast or dinner.
If you’re tired of the same old plate of eggs, consider these ingredients you can add to eggs to give them plenty of flavor and keep things fresh at mealtime. Very often I normally  have a small bit of meat leftover at dinnertime. Instead of tossing it, try adding it to your  eggs. Thinly slice the meat and add it to the pan for a couple of minutes before putting the eggs in. That way it’s hot, but not overcooked. Try  adding sliced steak, chicken breast, ham, pork chops or salmon. I can personally attest to the tasty flavor of each of these choices. You won’t be sorry!

I love to sauté a few chopped…

Butter Chicken On Saffron Rice

Despite being in India for about 7 days and back to Dallas again really took my sprite out- completely draining out my energy level. Oh Boy!!!! this can be very irritating at times as the time zone is out of way. 23 hours struck in between two big frame persons and not able to move the my arms and legs really wants me scream out. Im glad to be back home...home sweet home and back to my kitchen.  
My kind of blissful time in the safely of my kitchen has given me the confidence to head out into my cooking sphere .It helps me relax and  keep my mind active as I love to try new items and cook things that I never would have even attempted before in addition, my family members are definitely enjoying it. 
Normally I scour the internet and have a ton of cookbooks where I pick out interesting and fun recipes and try them out. It is always fun and usually I end up changing the recipe to suit my family taste bud or just change it enough to make it uniquely mine.
