Whenever I visit the wet market, I will make sure of getting some of this small crabs. Sometimes my friends wonder why am I buying such crabs as they don’t contain much meat and it seems to be useless. Well, the shell is the gem and I use it for my dish. I will use a mixture of meat and stuff it into the shells and deep fried them. The taste is absolutely divine.

Firstly I will have a dozen of the shell by removing the meat. I will use fish paste, prawn paste and crab meat minced together and stuffed them into the shell. Deep fry them.

Stir Fried Chicken with Sweet Basil

Sweet Basil with Chicken

I just love the smell of the sweet basil leaves. It gives such a fragrant and uniquely smell. You can find most Thai dishes consist of this sweet basil leaves. They really add flavour to any dishes. I found this leaves at SS17, Petaling Jaya wet market. They are sold in big bunch at a very reasonable and affordable price.

Usually the sweet basil leaves are used in scrambled egg as to give more flavour to the egg dish. As for myself, I use this sweet basil leaves for a chicken dish


Ingredients
300gm Diced chicken breast
50gm Sweet basil leaves
2bulbs Minced garlic
2tsp Fish Sauce
1Tsp Oyster sauce
1tsp Dark soya sauce
1 Cut chilli
1Tsp Cooking Oil
a pinch White Pepper
a pinch Sugar

Heat up the oil in the pan. When the oil is hot, put in minced garlic and half the amount of sweet basil leaves. Once the gralic is browned, stir in diced chicken. As the diced chicken is getting cooked, pour in fish sauce, oyster sauce and dark soya sauce. Stir fry the dish for few minutes. Once cooked, stir in the sweet basil leaves and cut chilli. Put in the white pepper and sugar. Now you can dish up the dish onto the serving plate.

Hope you will try this dish. It is simple, fast and yet will surprise you guest.

Stir Fried Baby Leek Bulbs with Japanese Seaweed Tofu

Baby leeks

It is another weekend morning marketing at my regular wet market at SS17, Petaling Jaya where I stumbled upon a very interesting vegetable, baby leek bulbs. This is the first time that I had seen such unique and interesting, baby leek bulbs and yet do not know what to do with them. An elderly lady who was standing beside me insisted that I should dry stir fried them with tofu to bring out the full flavour of the baby leek bulbs. She also teached me just to use the bulbs and discard the stems. It really sounded interesting and tasty. She taged way with 2kg of this baby leek bulbs as her son loves them. After overwhelming by her lust, I too immediately bought 1kg of this baby leek bulbs. I also picked up a packed of japanese seaweed tofu from the market.

Japanese Seaweed Tofu


The japanese seaweed tofu looks great, not soft and well suitable for stir frying. I had them cut into cubes and deep fried. By doing this I will able to have a crunchy texture of tofu and also easy to stir fry them within seconds.
