Treasure Fragrant Rice

If arrowroot heads suddenly run out of stock due to the festive shopping frenzy, replace them with deep fried orange sweet potato or yam cubes. Homemade Waxed Chicken can be made well in advance. Keep it frozen immersed in its baking oil. When ready to use, thaw overnight in the chiller. I prefer to use kicap manis compared to typical dark soy sauce because it give a good balance of sweet salty flavours and golden brown tones.

Pasta Bolognese
Recipe

Pasta Bolognese

Passata is a liquid tomato puree that has been strained of seeds and skins. It provides a fresher taste and more vibrant colour to your bolognese sauce compared to conventional ready made pasta sauce, tomato puree and tomato sauce. Passata is now commercially available in most major supermarkets. If you cannot find it, replace with plain canned tomatoes of equal weight and blend it till smooth before using. I also prefer to mince meat at home with a meat grinder or food processor. That way you are sure of what your children are getting to eat.

Coconut Rice

There's nothing more fragrant to cook at home than infused coconut rice. A true Malaysian favorite, you can typically taste this type of rice when you have a local dish called, 'Nasi Lemak'.
