French Onion Soup

We used to make our daily soups from scratch when we had Cafe' Dania. This French Onion Soup recipe was our most popular non-creamy soup. The taste though is certainly not simple. It's rich with flavour, packed with coarsely sliced stewed onions & topped with grilled cheese on French Loaf - totally wholesome!

Spaghetti Carbonara

My kids totally love having pasta, chicken, mushrooms & definitely cream. So, Spaghetti Carbonara fits all the right criteria to be their favourite dish! I actually think they can have this every day and not be bored with it! Frankly, I like to cook what they like, but I'm not too keen for them to have rich food on a daily basis. So, although the original recipe calls for eggs & parmesan cheese, I omit that from the recipe every time I cook it. I also reduce the cream & exchange the balance with low-fat milk instead. I guess you could say it's the healthy version of Carbonara! Enjoy my version.

Bubur Asyura

During the first month of the Islamic calendar, Muharram, Muslims cook Bubur Ashura to commemorate this time of the year when people in a town in the middle east was suffering from famine one thousand four hundred years ago. Our Prophet went from house to house collecting whatever food people had in their homes, put everything in a large pot and cooked it all together, giving birth to Bubur Ashura. This porridge is primarily made of seeds and beans. I share with you my mother’s version, which I undoubtedly find delicious beyond imagination!

Kuih Cara Berlauk

I have always enjoyed buying Kuih Cara Berlauk as I assumed it was difficult & time-consuming to make. When I got around to cooking it, I regretted not cooking this myself, all this time!! It was so easy to make and utterly delicious - straight from the stove. The outer layer is almost crunchy & the inner batter is so delicate & soft when eaten immediately. The tiny chunks of beef make it taste so luxurious & the chopped Chinese celery & chilli gives a nice texture to the munch!
