Let me be brutally honest here. There’s no words to describe my first time when I did it.
Or rather when I cooked these new dishes for the past days :p
The first dish I decided to give it a go (cooked once but turned out a disaster) was, chinese mustard leaf with sourish broth..(shuen choy) or do we call it “chop suey”?
I saw fresh mustard leaf on sale at NTUC Fair Price and it was a last minute decision. This time, it tasted much better than the first time and it’s not bitter tasting anymore (hint: to parboil the mustard leaf prior )
Second dish I was particularly proud, was taiwanese style braised minced pork (rou chou). Carment said the taste is almost like the real mc coy. Not bad for my first time.
Yesterday morning, I decided to make porridege as Carment wasn’t in the pink of health. Carment said since I don’t eat porridge, I wouldn’t know how to cook porridege.
Anyway, I decided to go ahead to cook plain porridge with dried scallops and pork ribs. Quite flavourful, remarked Carment. And quite goey as well.
There you go..these were my firsts.
