How to Make Chilli Pan Mee and Butter Prawns

Despite being Hakka I’d only ever had Hakka Pan Mee in a broth; this was my first attempt serving it “dry-style”, which involved using the same dough recipe from the soup version which I’d previously shared, but this time cut into thin strips as opposed to pappardelle-style. I was also going in blind with this since I’d never had it, and frankly » 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 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

The original Live Asian Kitchen broadcast on which these recipes were based was unfortunately deleted (I didn't realise that Twitch only kept the recordings for 2 months) so here's a more recent episode, albeit one that only covers the Chicken Serunding (well, I also did chicken floss, but we won't worry about that) recipe below - Sui » Read More

How to Make Fish Head Noodles and Crispy Skin Chicken

Well, some light relief after all that #TelstraFail saga; this was the Battle of the Bots episode. If you engage with me on the Chat at Twitch, you might have noticed a third party bot (ie. automated software) called RevloBot that intermittently posts links for people to check out how many points they have acquired based on their view » Read More

Pressure-Cooked Lamb Shoulder | Chicken Curry

My life as an “influencer” involves testing out new kitchen appliances, so this time around, I figured I might as well do it Live On Air so my Twitch community could join in with suggestions on how to use them. (Yes, I’m getting engagement on my Twitch chat now. Think about my Live Asian Kitchen next time you’re in front of your TV yelling at your » Read More

How to Make Hainanese Chicken Rice

This is one of the most popular dishes from my Concord restaurant days, and it’s the first time I’ve divulged the recipe. Which, by the way, is my stepmom’s, so full credit to her. There’s a lot of “agak-agak” - ie. “guesstimating” - in this dish. Different brands of soya sauce, oyster sauce etc. etc. will affect the flavour of some of the » Read More

How to Cook Serunding and Mild Prawn Sambal

So I had this genius idea for audience retention; rather than telling them about my latest Giveaway at the start, I told them they’d have wait till the end for details. Then I promptly forgot about it. I hope those poor folks who stuck around at least managed to pick up some Malaysian cooking tips. Chicken Serunding INGREDIENTS: 250g » Read More

How to Make Bo La Lot (Wild Pepper Leaf Beef Rolls)

This was the Nerd Raid episode. Nope, I’d never heard of it either. I’m not sure how much of it showed through via my reactions on video but this was what happened. Right in the middle of my broadcast, my Twitch chat room suddenly got hit with a high level of activity (it’s usually more like Tumbleweedville - yes it’s tough going when you embark » Read More

How to Cook Indonesian Crispy Fried Chicken (Ayam Goreng Kremes)

This was actually my third broadcast on the same recipe - the first one failed on a number of levels (main one being a 5-minute interruption while I was being served legal papers for a little hobby site I maintain, called RobbDemarestCheats.com).   The second one would have been perfect but for my Category 5 hayfever attack, which saw me ducking » Read More
