Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup


I didn't have to cook for a couple days as we have too many leftovers to clear out. Now its time to clear some raw ingredients out of the fridge. Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup - clear out my celery, onion, carrot and potatoes and chicken breast. Marinate the chicken breast with some zesty herbs, pan fry then, shred and set aside. In a different pot, boil water, dump chopped celery, onion, carrots and potato, add some ground pepper, cook for 30mins or until carrots are tender, add shredded chicken, cook over low heat for about 15 minutes, add cooked spiral pasta, salt and chicken bouillon to taste. DONE!!! 这真是个消灭掉一堆中国芹菜的好方法啊!又快又容易, 昨天办公室的pot luck, 红毛人很喜欢。

Nasi Kunyit with Chicken Curry



I will just post the recipe for nasi kunyit (Turmeric Rice), the chicken curry is the same I made for my Nasi Lemak. Do you notice that my rice is not glutinous rice? Yes, I use sushi rice instead, because I am having indigestion problem with glutinous rice recently. It tasted not bad at all, but the texture is a bit different. May be it is healthier?

Here is the recipe for my turmeric rice (sushi rice version).

1. 2 cup (approx. 300g) sushi rice - wash and rinse
2. 100g fresh turmeric
3. 3 shallot
4. Couple while peppercorns
4. water just enough to cover the rice

1. 2~3 tbsp thick coconut milk
2. 80~100 ml water
2. 1/4 tsp salt
3. 1/2 tsp white peppercorn
4. 4~5 pandan leaves - knotted

Steps :
1. Pound the fresh turmeric, shallot and white peppercorn together, squeeze the juice, repeat few time with adding some water. Discharge the pulp.
2. Soak the rice with turmeric juice, add some water just enough to cover the rice.
3. Soak the rice for 60 mins.
4. Drain the rice, wash and rinse once.
5. Add in coconut milk, salt, white peppercorn, some water, pandan knotted.
6. Steam over high heat for 20~30 minutes, stir once for evenly cooked.
