Blanched Okras

I went to the wet market and found some lovely okras. They looked so fresh and firm. Some people like to pluck off the tips to see if it snaps and if it does, it means it's young and crunchy, good to eat but I find this a pretty appalling act when they snap it and don't take it. So who's going to buy the martyred ones? What I do is, feel the firmness and know the color, so far it worked for me.

Sunflower Seed Bread

It has been a while since I posted. Have been really busy with so much of other stuffs, I hardly even have time to think. Now it's Christmas season once again and the menu is building up once more. I have been a little obsessed with bread baking lately but be patient, I will share more bread recipes with you when I have a little more time.

Malaysian Braised Pig Trotter

This can be passed as a one pot dish and not only does it taste great, it's high on collagen too. Great and fuss free way to braise a pig trotter.
