Deep Fried Spring Roll with Curry Chicken Fillings

Yesterday my hubby has reminded me that I did not cook curry for quite some time.  Knowing curry is one of his favorites and he had hinted me to cook, I had this idea - curry chicken with potatoes and turned them into spring rolls as snack for our weekend tea time.

This recipe of spring rolls does not need any dipping sauce to go with it as the taste of fillings are juicy and flavorful enough with spices.  You may reduce the portion of the ingredients if you do not like the level spiciness to be too strong.  Both of us just satisfied with the taste of them! 

Is another simple and easy snack recipe for home-gathering or party, hope you like it too!

Chinese Style Fried Spicy Calamari

I know I don't post seafood recipes regularly as both my hubby and myself a little conscious with our diet.  But, I was craving for calamari lately.  

Deep fried calamari is the common method, but then, I wish to add in some Chinese touch in my recipe.  I had added with Chinese five spices powder in the spices mixtures and "chili padi" or bird chilies to boost-up the spiciness.  

This will be another easy to prepare recipe which suitable for any occasions, hope you like it too!

Braised Chicken with Bitter Gourd

I am sorry for not able to do a posting last weekend, as we were having network problem at home and that forced me to take a skip on my blog.

Today, I wish to share a classic Chinese recipe, a popular dish for Chinese in South East Asia  - Braised Chicken with Bitter Gourd.  I know some of you will not fancy with bitter gourd due to the bitter taste, well, I am one of them too!  As age catching up, I started to appreciate it and you won't believe it, that bitter gourd has became one of my favorite vegetables.

Normally, this dish cooked using the Chinese fermented beans, either is the black or the yellow.  My late mum used to used the yellow type but since I was married, I was introduced to the black fermented beans for this dish by my hubby.  After trying on both types separately, I decided to try to use both types in this recipe.  I able to get the balance of taste from both type of the beans, which I think all of you will love it too!  Perfect to go with plain rice.
