Simple brinjal

Brinjal or eggplant, also called aubergine, is usually one of the ingredient in cooking curry. Here, we pan fried it on its own. It is the way it was cooked by my late MIL according to my husband, hence, the pan fried brinjal has become a favourite dish for him.

Simply slice the brinjal thinly, sprinkle with some salt and fried in a pan.

Kon Lou Mein and tomyam

Kon Lou Mein is one of our favourite when we dine out. We ordered this at the Siang Siang Pan Mein coffee shop at Lintas. It is served with minced pork and fried wanton, together with a bowl of plain soup with some green vegetable and meat balls.
I ordered a bowl of tomyam meehoon. The presentation is too plain, no garnishes at all. I also noticed that they put the same fillings as the kon lou mein, that's minced pork, meat balls and fried wanton . I expect to have some prawns and tauke, but none. The chef or cook should consider garnishing it with parsley or coriander which I reckon that is the basic essential for serving tomyam in a restaurant. The only green I could find is the curry leaves. Luckily the taste of the tomyam soup was not bad.

Not long after having this bowl of tomyam meehoon, I was so thirsty for the whole evening that I drank about 6 glasses of plain water. I hope they did not put too much of ajinomoto in it.

We enjoyed this dishes very much.  I would say the sweet and saltiness of the Chinese sausage blend very well with the bitterness of bitter gourd. :D

Crunchy green pepper with minced beef

I love to eat raw green pepper with other vegetable as salad, I also like it slightly cooked to maintain it crunchiness just like this one I cooked with minced beef and onions. I purposely made a lot of sauce with it so that my girls can mix the sauce with rice as I did not boil any soup for their meals that day.

Chinese Long Beans with eggs

Chinese long beans also known as yardlong bean. It is a widely grown plant in the warmer part of the South East Asia countries and Southern China.

I bought 300g of the organic Chinese long beans at RM9.00 per kilo, enough to make a dish for dinner.

I diced the beans into smaller pieces, fried with some garlic and eggs. One of the simplest dishes that I cook.
