Chan’s Cereal Prawns

This is one of my son’s favourite dishes. It’s very tasty and not too difficult to prepare. First step is to fry the prawns until they are cooked through. Once that is done, I like to drain the excess oil before I add in some butter and curry leaves.

Fry at low heat until the curry leaves start to wrinkle. Then toss in some salted egg yolk powder (readily available at any supermarket in Singapore these days).

Be generous with the powder. It’s not as salty as you think. At this point, you can also add some chopped chilli padi. Finally the “cereal” goes in. I prefer to use tempura “crumbs”

Mix well and your dish is done.

Hawking Woes

Don’t just blame the government. This country is full of kiasu, kiasi, gian png, cheapskate, class conscious people who refuse to give hawkers the respect they deserve.

Homemade Pizza

It’s really not difficult to make your own pizza. First, you need to make the dough. Here, I mix flour with water, sugar, salt and yeast. Add the water gradually and keep kneading until you get this consistency. Then place it in your refrigerator and let it rise for about 2 hours.

The picture below shows a very simple pure cheese pizza. I have two cheeses here – a cheddar and a mozzarella. Sprinkle the cheese flakes over the dough which has been flattened against a non-stick springform baking mould. The dough should only be about half a cm thick.

Bake at 240 deg C for 15 minutes and you should get the beautiful results you see above. Do try this yourself. Your kids will love it.
