Hainanese chicken rice, stir-fry bitter gourd and rice bento

January 5th, 2009


I tried stir-frying some bitter gourd with eggs and shrimp last night, and since it turned out okay, I packed it for lunch today.  I also made some Hainanese chicken rice with some steamed chicken.  What was missing was the cili padi!

“Lemak Sui Kari Kay” with Rice Bento

November 19th, 2008


Yesterday, I experimented with a dish I had tasted in one of my favorite Nyonya restaurants back in Penang.  The dish is called “Lemak Sui Kari Kay”, which is Hokkien for Curry Chicken cooked in coconut milk with a tinge of sourish flavor to it.  The difference between this dish and the conventional curry chicken is that “Lemak Sui Kari Kay” replaces the potatoes with chunks of pineapples.  So the result is a spicy sweet and sour curry.

Today my hubby brought a bento to work that is a Penang nyonya delicacy 🙂

I also added some furikake seasoning to the steamed rice for added flavor, and oh, a blueberry muffin for dessert.
