Shrimp marinated in a cilantro marinade and grilled till browned… This Summer, I didn’t do much grilling and the thought that Summer is going to end soon tempted me to grill more. Everything tastes better when grilled. So, the other day I threw some shrimp on the grill. I made a simple cilantro marinade and marinated the shrimp for a few hours, inserted...

Momos or steamed dumplings are a traditional delicacy of Nepal… I was introduced to momos by my sister, she had tried it a few months ago and highly recommended it to me. I’ve tried Dim Sums at Chinese restaurants and I love them. Momos looks very similar to dim sums but they are different. Making momos was on my top to-do list and finally I was inspired...

Bibingka is a popular dessert in Philippines. It’s made with rice flour and coconut milk and it’s baked… Do not confuse this with the Goan speciality Bebinca, even though the names sound the same that’s an entirely different dessert made with all purpose flour batter (many layers of crepes are made) and is cooked over stove top. My intention...

Laksa is a popular noodle soup in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore. This is a very comforting dish, coconut milk makes it creamy and the spices added makes this dish  flavorful. I’d made a similar dish called Khow Suey, which is a Burmese speciality. I am sure that these two dishes are related as most of the ingredients used and the preparation are the same. Laksa...

Tired of regular patties? Make it Asian style and enjoy… No more complaints! When the weather gets crazy in winter, I get cozy on my couch either watching movies or reading ebooks. Today, I’ve added around 50 best books of 2013 to my library, hoping to read all of them. Yup, I am on a marathon reading . While in Summer, I befriend outdoors and I go crazy...

Absolutely delicious stir fry… Beef and Asian flavors get along so well. When Asian seasonings and flavors are added to beef, it really enhances the taste of the beef. I would say beef is a better choice for making stir fries than chicken. I made this beef stir fry a couple of days ago, the taste of this dish still lingers in my mouth. Flavorful, aromatic and...

Fry the sushi rolls and you’ll love it even more, it’s crunchilicious… We went to one of the best restaurants in our city for my birthday dinner, their menu was totally unique and different. I wanted to try each and every dishes, and I wished if I had a couple more stomachs. Being a sushi freak, I couldn’t resist ordering the tempura sushi...

Succulent shrimp in honey and soya sauce along with colorful peppers… I like to make my dishes colorful, one of the ways is by adding peppers of different colors. Peppers impart so much color and flavor to whatever dish you are making. The other day, I stir fried the shrimp in soy sauce and honey, to that added the stir fried peppers. It was one easy dish to...

Oven roasted butternut squash, I devoured it… I’d roasted butternut squash a couple of months ago, and this made a perfect veggie side dish. I often make soups using butternut squash, however roasting them has become my new favorite way of enjoying butternut squash. I added Asian seasonings to the diced butternut squash and oven roasted it. It turned...

Refreshing rolls that has shrimp in it, perfect for seafood lovers… This week feels like a drag to me, I know the week just started and it’s not fair to murmur already. Can you believe that April has come to an end? Wasn’t that pretty fast??? April showers bring May flowers, so I am eagerly waiting to see my garden in full bloom in May. This evening,...
