‘Asam Pedas’ refers to sour/spicy fish stew made of tamarind base. ‘Asam’ means tamarind and ‘pedas’ spicy. It tastes quite similar to ‘tom yum goong’ from Thailand and the ingredients used are almost the same. With ‘asam pedas’, we usually cook it with freshwater fish such as the ‘ikan tengirri’, otherwise known as macakerel and sometimes with red snapper. Please try this beautiful dish and let me know if you like it! http://kampungsingapura.com/malay-food-recipes/asam-pedas

‘Ikan Bakar’ means ‘Burnt Fish’ literally in Malay. It refers to fish and any other form of seafood seasoned with spices and sambal belacan paste and  placed on banana leaves to be grilled over the bbq or a hot plate. The juice from the sambal combined with the banana leaves’ essence infuse the fish and gives it an amazing taste. It is just so heavenly!Oooh lala feeling!

‘Tempeh’ is  fermented soy product originally from Java. It is made out of whole soy beans soaked overnight, dehulled and cooked partially. It looks like a mini cake slightly brown in colour. Vegetarians often use it as a meat alternative. My mum cooks mostly vegetarian dishes at home and ‘tempeh’ is always on the list.

’Chap Choi’ is one such dish. It is mixed vegetable stir fry and is a very popular dish in Singapore served usually in seafood eateries. It is also my most favoured vegetable dish. It has a variety of vegetables in it each with its unique taste and is cooked with chicken/vegetable stock and thickened with corn flour.

This Black Pepper Sardine Stir Fry is my lovely mother’s recipe. She makes it even better than me. She usually makes it with ‘sothi’ the Indian coconut stew. It is really spicy so if you are fan of spicy dishes, this one’s for you. Garb the recipe at http://kampungsingapura.com/indian-food-recipes/black-pepper-sardine-stir-fry

Cassava Cake is a traditional Filipino dessert made from grated cassava. The Cassava plant is a tropical root plant native to Central and South America. In Asia, it is commonly grown and used for various culinary purposes in the Phippines and Indonesia.  I was scouring for cassava cake recipes and this is by far the best as the taste is the closest to the one I tried at the birthday. I hope you enjoy making it.  http://kampungsingapura.com/asian-desserts/cassava-cake

‘Pancit Bihon’ is another Filipino dish that I have learnt to make. It refers to rice noodles steeped in chicken broth on high heat. It tastes very similar to the Singaporean Chinese Bee Hoon.  ’Pancit Bihon’ is a relatively easy dish to make and so is the perfect choice on days you are feeling really tired from work.
