When using the lemongrass, discard the tough outer leaves and root. Slice the bulbous section into rings, or strips if you intend to remove it from the cooked dish, and bruise the pieces to release the flavour before adding it.
Hi all, any ideas how to make tempura? My hubby tried coating prawns with the tempura powder but it's not like wat we eat in jap restaurants.
One more thing: we don't seem to succeed in roasting chicken wings in our microwave oven. It turns out charred n the wings stick onto the aluminium foil which we place on top of the baking tray. Sigh... thot with microwave, food will be easier to prepare?
need your help!
Tried the kaya recipe, but it never turn to look like kaya at all.
After stirring in the eggs, i put it to boil and stirring it continuously.
But it kinda of become wattery and curddles. In the end, its just curddles and water. not kaya at all.
I used to attend the National Cooking class to learn how to cook with the microwave. I have quite a few recipes but all in hard copy. If you want, I can mail you. Is there anything you are looking for in particular? Cooking or baking? I also have recipes for mango pudding and bbq chicken wings.
you may wanna consider trying out the lessons there. they are quite good as their recipes are relatively simple to follow.
Hi keruri, I'm looking for cooking in particular. I've attended 1 of the National cooking classes in which we did bbq chicken wings and glutinous rice. If you've other recipes on cooking I'm interested.
If you're looking for recipes that work, you can also try cookbooks by Betty Saw. Her recipes are very homemade (ie. easy!--just like what mum makes) and they work very well. She's got both savouries and sweets. All work well.
Some others I have tried also include "Cook Malaysian", "The New Mrs Lee's Cookbook" and "Cuisine Unplugged". All three cookbooks feature different types of cuisine and are all rather easy and straight forward to do. "Cuisine Unplugged" is great for when my own friends come over! Easy, hip Western style recipes. Easy to do and they look good on the table!
I have a bake & grill microwave. Yes, you can use metal trays to bake or grill your food if u are in the bake or grill mode. If you have oven-proof glass like pyrex, you can use them also.
