Domestic Goddess

Bryan has a great many unexpected kitchen utensils for a man’s kitchen. Not only did I find a blender (great for blending garlic and onion together into a paste), he has a god to honest steamer. It comes in 2 parts, the bottom pot where you fill with water and the top portion with holes on its base that allow the steam to rise through. I used it to steam custard, by placing the cups of custard into the steamer for 20 mins before chilling it for another 30 mins.

He also has a garlic crusher. NO MORE CHOPPING OF GARLIC WOOHOO!

September’s issue of Simply Her magazine came with 32-page mini cook book of 15 simple dishes to cook at home. The recipes were contributed by celebrity chef Forest Leong and a bunch of Simply Her readers, the recipes were easy to follow with ingredients readily available from FairPrice Finest.

Soya Curry Prawn with pineapple recipe by Simply Her

Soya Curry Prawn with pineapple. I never realised cooking curry was this easy. All you need is to fry a paste of garlic and onions together with curry powder. Add milk and voila, curry! Here we used soy milk as a substitute for coconut milk. Great for those lactose intolerant!
