Teresa introduced me to Cereal Prawns. I’ve never even heard of it but apparently, it’s very popular in Singapore at the moment. It wasn’t around at the beginning of this year when I went back to visit family. She was kind enough to send me 2 packets of the cereal to try and I’m hooked! Sooo yummy! Even better than garlic prawns! I altered the recipe from the packet slightly – used a little curry powder and chilli flakes, instead of curry leaves and fresh chillies. Teresa makes a lovely vegan version of it which I will try very soon I think. Mmm…
I spent my earlier years buried in books and the computer, and not in a kitchen. So at 29 and married, I am calling my very understanding mum up every weekend asking for recipes and ideas on what to cook. Embarrassing, I know. This is my first successful attempt at nasi lemak (coconut rice) with sambal tumis udang (spicy chilli prawns). I can hear some of my Singaporean friends laughing at me but meh! It turned out great and is now Richard’s favourite Malay dish!
I wish all Muslims a Happy Eid Mubarak! I hope that you are enjoying good food with those you love and that all is forgiven. As for me, this is my first year really celebrating Eid in Australia. Richard and I cooked traditional Malay food from scratch. Eventhough it was tiring, the food was delicious and every mouthful brought back memories of Hari Raya with my beloved family back in Singapore. We dressed in traditional baju kurung and even hung ketupat fairy lights. We’re definitely doing this every year.

I haven’t had sugee cookies in ages and when my mum gave me her friend’s recipe this morning, I just had to make them. It’s a lot simpler to make than the traditional ones and they sure are yummy!
