Butter Prawns - A real delicacy

Butter Prawns

I love seafood and this is one of my favourite ! Butter Prawns, Yummy!

This recipe is actually quite good in a sense that if you ever ordered this dish in a 5-Star Chinese restaurant, you would normally get a dish as similar as my Butter Prawns recipe. So enjoy it. For Western countries, it may not be possible to buy "curry leaves". Either leave it out or subsitute another fragrant leaves such as Bay leaves. And you can leave out the Chillies too.


1. Half kilo Large prawns. With shells on.(I prefer Tiger prawns)

2. 120 gms. Butter

3. Chilli padi (7 small ones). Just flatten or crush it.

4. Curry leaves. (20 leaves)

5. 6 egg Yolks.( only the egg yolks, no egg white) Well beaten and whisked until it froths.


Wash and drain the prawns. It must be dry.Melt the butter in a wok. Pour eggyolk into the melted butter under medium heat and keep stirring while the egg yolk is being poured.

Keep on stirring until the yolk froths in the butter. Put in curry leaves and chilli and stir for 1 minute.Next put in the prawns and fried for 10 minutes or until the prawns are cooked.( It will turn pink).

Ready to serve.

Chicken and Chips

Chicken and Chips is widely eaten and inexpensive to cook.

Chicken and chips.

Mentioned fish and chips or Chicken and chips, and most will tell you that they already know how to cook this popular home dish. It is simple and appetizing and yet there are still some who has no idea how to cook it. Western countries know this recipe from inside out but for Asians, it is still a treat to be able to give their kids some " Western food" once in a while.

I normally cook this dish in several different ways, to break the monotony of the simple Chicken and Chips. My variants are Spicy Chicken and Chips, Savoury Chicken and chips, Roasted Chicken and chips, Honey Chicken and chips ad a few more others. You can make up your own such as Ginger Chicken, Cinnamon Chicken, Buttered Chicken, etc.

We will start with a simple Soya Chicken and Chips.


1. 4 chicken thighs

2. Some chips - you can buy ready to cook from supermarkets, its much simpler.

3. 2 tablespoons of light soya sauce.

4. White pepper.

5. Salt.

6. Tomatoes or cucumber for garnishing.


Marinate the chicken thighs with soya sauce, a sprinkle of pepper, a pinch of salt. Leave it to dry out in the fridge for half an hour.

In the meantime, start frying some chips and prepare the tomatoes for garnishing.

In a half full pot of oil, fry the chicken under moderate heat for 15 minutes. Then turn over the chicken and fry for a further 15 minutes. be sure to drip dry the oil. The skin of the chicken will be " crunchy" if you have left it to dry out in the fridge.

Garnish with cucumber or tomatoes or parsley. You can also serve it with your kid's favourite vegetables.

Serves 4 - for 4 chicken thighs.

Roast Pork

Roast pork is very popular amongst the Chinese community and is one of the most widely eaten besides Chicken Rice. Here I have provided my own recipe for making Roast Pork at home. All you need is an oven.

To make your own roast pork, prepare the ingredients as follows:
1. 1kg.. of pork belly.
2 5-spice powder.
3. 4 tablespoons of soya-sauce.
4. 1 teaspoon of table salt.
Marinate the pork belly with 5-spice powder, soya-sauce, salt. Leave it to dry out for 2 hours in the fridge.
Heat up the oven at 250 degrees for 10 minutes. Put the marinated pork belly into the oven with the skin facing upwards. Roast for 20 minutes or until the skin starts to "crackle".
Turn the belly of pork and roast for another 20 minutes.
Finally turn the roast pork again with the skin facing upwards again and roast for another 5-10 minutes.
Take out your roast pork, cut into small pieces and garnish with fresh lettuce or cucumber slices.

Stir fried vegetables

Posted 14Th. June 2009

Vegetables are a must in any Asian dishes. Cooking vegetables are very easy and do not require elaborate preparations and can be ready in minutes. Unlike western cooking, Vegetables are normally stir-fried and most of the nourishment are retain if done this way. Lettuce, cucumber, Pak Choy, cabbages all can be stir-fried.

Here I am showing how to cook Pak Choy, but you can use lettuce as an alternative if Pak Choy is not available.

1. 400 gms. Pak Choy (or lettuce)

2. 2 cloves of garlic - sliced thinly.

3. 1 tablespoon of soy-sauce.

4. 1 tablespoon of cooking oil.

Heat the oil in a pan or a wok. Put in sliced garlic pieces and do a quick fry for about 1 minute.
Put in your Pak Choy or lettuce in the pan and add in the soy-sauce. Stir-fry for another 2 minutes. If you prefer your vegetables more cooked, then do it for 3 minutes instead.

That's it, you're done!

The dish can be eaten stand-alone or served with plain white rice.

This Special Fried Rice has always been the favourite with my kids. I made up this dish when I was living in London.

4. 200 gms. mixed vegetables.
5. 2 eggs beaten well.
6. 2 cloves of garlic finely chopped.
7. Half teaspoon of fine table salt.
8. White ground pepper - added to taste (optional if you require non-spicy)
9. 2 tablespoons of cooking oil.
10.Cooked rice (cook half a kilo of long grain rice)

Heat up the cooking oil in a Wok and fry for 1 minute. Add in chicken, bacon, prawns and mixed vegetables. Stir fry for another 5 minutes.
Add in the rice and mix thoroughly in the Wok with the vegetables; keep stir fry for another 5 minutes.
