How to Make Wheat Noodles for KL Hokkien Mee

I did a near-identical broadcast on this a couple of years ago but made a couple of minor tweaks to the KL Hokkien Mee recipe this time around, so I’m re-sharing the recipes here. FYI the title of this broadcast originally made reference to homemade udon, but the ingredients are such a diversion from traditional udon that I’ve decided instead to » Read More

How to Make Rice Noodles (for Vietnamese Banh Cuon)

I didn't set out to make Vietnamese Banh Cuon but I was hoping to test out different rice noodle recipes in this broadcast to see how they turned out texturally with different ratios of tapioca flour to rice flour in the batter. As it turned out, the one for Banh Cuon was my favourite, hence the title of this post. A third recipe called for a » Read More

Ten Asian Dishes That Work Great in an Airfryer

A few weeks ago, I received an Optimum HealthyFry airfryer courtesy of Prestige Home Appliances, to test and review. Prior to that, I’d never crossed paths with an airfryer, let alone thought about what I could cook with it. It took a bit of outside-the-box thinking but thankfully through my Twitch Live Asian Kitchen broadcasts, I received some » Read More

Malaysian Recipe Links – Twitch Broadcasts

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve run Twitch broadcasts based on dishes I’ve previously posted here on this blog. Instead of rewriting the recipes for each of them, I figured I might share the links to the original posts here, for your reference >> Hakka Yong Tau Foo Click here for the Hakka Yong Tau Foo » Read More

How to Cook Chilli Scampi and Congee

I struggle with dead air when I’m doing a live cooking broadcast; it’s probably because I started out doing cooking demonstrations in front of live audiences where you’re EXPECTED to talk right through your presentation. When I run out of questions from my Twitch audience, I ramble. In this instance I talked about baby Noah and his time in the » Read More

How to Make Marmite Chicken, Airfryer Chicken Crackling and Sambal Belacan Tumis

In the 33 years since I left Malaysia, I’d had no inclination to buy Marmite until this dish started showing up on Malaysian restaurant menus here in Australia. What I didn’t realise until the middle of this broadcast (thanks to my audience) was that the NZ-made Marmite I picked up at Woolies is significantly different to the British version I ate » Read More

How to Make Sui Gow, Serunding and Fried Fish Balls

Another first for me on Twitch - one of my audience members, Valourine, decided to leave her house while I was livestreaming, and drop in at my place in the middle of my broadcast. She ended up co-hosting the rest of this Live Asian Kitchen episode with me and I paid her with food. Yeah she could have been a serial killer and all that but any » Read More

How to Cook Crispy Kai Lan (Airfryer), Sambal Prawns & Butter Prawns

This was one of my favourite broadcasts on Twitch so far - great crowd and fabulous conversation. A troll came and left pretty quickly when the usual insults about my food were so lame I threw some sympathy laughs his way. I should send him a copy of Trolling for Dummies, if ever I get around to writing and publishing it. If you’ve been meaning » Read More

How to Make Baked Asian Cheese Tarts

#TelstraFail Season 2 Episode 4 (Final) - after two days of back-and-forths with Netgear, the manufacturer of the modem connected to my Telstra service, I was told that it was definitely a faulty modem. Good news was that Netgear said they would replace it; bad news was that I had to go through Telstra. Hell would have to freeze over before I » Read More
