Nasi Kuning Komplit (Indonesian Yellow Rice Set) – Gourmet Conviction

Aromatic scent of lemongrass, coconut milk, bay leaves and kaffir lime leaves slowly filled our kitchen as we steamed the jasmine rice with added turmeric to naturally give its distinct color.

Mini Shepherd's Pie – Gourmet Conviction

Mini Shepherd's Pie – Gourmet Conviction

Shepherd’s Pie, Cottage’s Pie, you name it. But I will stand with my fellow Australians to call this dish the “Shepherd’s Pie”. The idea is very  simple, beef ragu topped with potatoes served in ramekins. Made for dinner a few nights ago, I was humbled by its not-so-secret ingredients: fresh and lean beef mince cooked with crushed garlic, sweet onions, perfectly […]

Malaysian Chicken Curry – Gourmet Conviction

I have a curry plant at the back of my house which has been there since I moved in. I thought I would utilize it by making this fabulous Malaysian comfort food.

This Christmas I decided to do something I haven’t done before: roasting this ginormous leg ham.

Cakwe Udang Mayonnaise (Prawn Stuffed Chinese Donut)

If you don’t know Cakwe, then be prepared to expand your cullinary vocabulary. Cakwe, also known as Chinese donut, is basically fried dough. It has longer shape, similar to Spanish Churros, but is turbocharged size-wise. Nothing beats freshly fried Cakwe. We, Indonesians, like to have this chewy yet crispy dough with our congees. Older generations […]
