Aunty, I miss your cooking


Aunty!!!!!!!! I miss your cooking!!!!

Pudina Chutney

Aunty is actually my ex-intern mom. Aunty used to cook for her daughter, and pack a little extra for the Chinese girl (me lah).


The first dish that I have tasted from aunty's kitchen is the Kesari. I totally love it. Love it so much that I bugged her for the recipe and tried making it on my own. I made an OK tasting Kesari on my 3rd try but...auntyyy yours is still the best!


I love her Tosai and Idly as well. Goes really well with her homemade Pudina Chutney which I also love! Aunty, I went out to Indian restaurants to look for better Kesari and Pudina Chutney, nothing beats yours.

And then there's this. I have no idea what this glutinous rice sweet cake is called but it sure taste good. I believe its made from gula melaka.

Eh hold on, I think this was the first thing I tried from aunty, not the Kesari. It's some flour thing with onions. Good stuff too.

Chickpeas and yellow rice.

I don't know what aunty put in there to make the rice turn yellow. Yellow ginger? Saffron? I wonder if I ever get to eat aunty's food again.


Very simple ikan bilis sambal that went well with rice and noodles. Aunty's sambal wasn't that spicy so I had so much of it!

Of course I didn't hog this container filled with scrambled egg and kangkung. ...even the simple cooks that aunty made was delicious.

This I wished aunty would make more. Some thing like Kesari but different.

Aunty, I miss your cooking!!!!
