Chinese Braised Pork Ribs with Bitter Gourd 苦瓜焖排骨

My mummy’s Chinese Braised Pork Ribs with Bitter Gourd is a comforting dish that’s not only easy to cook but full of nutrition. We marinate the meat in the same pot we cook it in, boil and then simmer until tender, and add bitter gourd to soak up the savoury sauce. Serves best with warm white rice!

Nothing is more comforting than a bowl of spicy laksa with rich creamy broth full of umami flavours, aromatic herbs, thick rice noodles, taupok (tofu puffs), prawns and sambal chilli. This recipe uses my easy to make homemade laksa paste but you can also use readily available store bought paste.

Curry Chicken

This Curry Chicken recipe, cooked with homemade Thai Red Curry Paste, is so full of flavours and aromatics, it makes the perfect comfort food. We love eating it with rice or just plain roti prata. Level up the spiciness if you are up for it or make it less spicy by replacing the chillies with bell peppers.

Mapo Tofu 麻婆豆腐

Not a big fan of tongue numbing spicy food, this milder version of my sister’s mapo tofu is much more palatable and goes really well with jasmine steamed white rice.
