Wow Diana, you have the recipe at your finger tips ar...
There's one brand called 'Masterfoods' where they have many different types of powders/herbs/flavourings sold in small bottles. These include Italian herbs,mixed herbs, Caijun etc. You should be able to find them in most supermarkets.
happy.gif
They're good for pastas or can use to marinate meat like salmon/chicken.

Hi all,

haha..everyone is talking about food now. I dont stay there permantly now but over the weekends. Start to feel sick and tired of the food centre nearby. Sometime would prefer to cook instead.

By the way, still having problems finding a photographer for my AD. Tried calling the Forest Production that you guys recommended, still waiting for their reply. Anymore other recommendations?

I think at the end of the year, the nearest would be Clementi (old ginza building). They have also one new one in Fusionpolis...

when you say steam pork, are you referring to those minced pork with the salted preserved veggie? one of my fave... ha ha.. always order from the rice stall when i eat rice...

hey val, you starting to cook in your flat now?

hi val, isn't pork filler lean pork? i always get confused... i went to the market the other day and wanted ginger... the lady asked me what type of ginger... i was like... ginger got many types meh? ginger is ginger what... turns out there are at least 3 types... one for chicken.. one for something else... and another for something... wa sey... *faint*

trying to start cooking more now since getting really tired and sick of hawker food ... i have not cooked for ages, cos i am a lousy cook ;p but these few weeks taking baby steps and doing simple stuffs
 

ryanon123

i also cooked ... but much much more simpler dish... but more often like 2-3 times a week after work now because i'm always the first one to reach home, stomach cannot wait. ha ha. Like what Angie said, dunno what to buy outside to eat.. so decide to cook myself.

often would be kang kong, fish fillet, steamed prawns, potato soup w/ bak ku, carrot and corns. maybe should learn how to fried fish soon ...

but... sometimes didn't cook because the queue at ntuc jp is really crazy

3 days ago, i also attended a make sushi workshop in office. not that hard to make but it gets really messy with all the vinegar smell on the hand.

grace always prepares bak kut soup, acc to her practice,
1) if u add bak kut in tap water and heat both to boil, there'll be much floats
2) so she'll boil the water before adding the bak kut (instead of adding it to cold water and boil both together), there is min float.

u can try
happy.gif

Valerie,

Ya, you need to boil the bak kut once first, just 2 or 3 mins.. then pour the water away and reboil again. Let the bak kut boil in there for a while so that it is cooked, then add in the ingredients you want. I normally throw in a 1/2 cube of those soup seasoning.. dunno what it is called into the soup. Very simple. Sometimes with corn is sweet enough liao, so no need the seasoning.. I heard using 'rong kut'is better, cos less oil and more meat in it.. but don't know how to look for it..

i think the floaty stuff your fren is talking about is the oil inside the bak kut released into the water floating on it.... ha ha..

i just finished cooking .. maybe can show a picture of my task. heh
 

ryanon123

New Member
Angie,

I saw the link. I don't usually add the ingredient into the soup so fast because if i did, when the bak kut is cooked, one of the ingredient i normally put "potatoes"will be like liquid lioa.. ha ha so i think it all depends what you're cooking..
happy.gif


But i got a good tip from the website to put in the meat before the water boils. Nice. Will try and see if it taste better.. ha ha
