New Year New Eats!

Let's start the year right with some bountiful cooking in your kitchens with our deliciously new recipes. These easy recipes will take your 'start of the year' menu to a whole new level, and they are easy to do with the whole family too. 


Udang Masak Lemak

Jam packed with flavor from the spices and sweetness of the fresh prawns and pineapple! A Peranakan dish popular in Malaysia, it’s also known as udang masak lemak nanas.

Airfryer Chicken with Kerupuk Crust

Cooking chicken (or anything for that matter) in an air fryer might be easy, but it’s just as easy to end up with overcooked meat and a soggy crust. Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered with a simple recipe that will guarantee a moist and juicy chicken with a satisfying crunch! The trick is to fry the chicken twice - once after it has been fully marinated, and another time after it has been coated with buttermilk. For that extra crunch and some Indonesian flavour, I’ve added a tasty coating of crushed kerupuk. A unique take on a popular finger food, this air fried chicken is sure to be a hit at any holiday party.

Wonton Chips and Sashimi Salsa

Wonton chips is an accidental snack that is now a staple for my family movie nights and gatherings. Forgetting to buy nachos for a dinner party, I quickly fried some wonton skins and it turned out to be an excellent replacement that’s simple yet absolutely delicious. While you can dip these addictive chips in any sauce, I usually pair it with a simple sashimi salsa that’s partly inspired by ceviche. Salmon sashimi is added to the refreshing salsa mix along with a drizzle of mayonnaise and a generous serving of tobiko, promising a burst of flavors with every mouthful. Serve this up on your holiday party table and watch it disappear in seconds.

Croissant Waffles

A Korean café staple that has gone viral globally, Croissant Waffle or Croffle will make a trendy addition to your holiday menu. Best part is that you only need 20 minutes and 3 ingredients to make it. Essentially a croissant in the form of a waffle, this fuss free dessert is also really versatile. While my recipe uses hazelnut or chocolate spread, and fresh strawberries as toppings, you can choose to pair it with other sauces and fruits of your choice. If you don’t have a waffle maker, you can also use a toaster press or panini press with a griddle attachment - you might not get the signature waffle shape, but it’s hard to complain once you get a taste of the rich buttery crust.

Beef Katsu

A delicious dish consisting of crispy fried cutlet of beef coated in crunchy breading to seal in the great flavour.

One-Pot Kimchi Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Heard of Mac and Cheese, what about Kimchi Pumpkin Mac and Cheese? This dish is suitable for those who find the Classic Mac and Cheese too cheezy as the addition of Kimchi and Pumpkin gives this Classic Western dish a Korean twist. To make things easier, this recipe only requires one pot and two steps. Yes, that simple! Time to make your own Mac and Cheese at home!

Tom Yum Vongole Pasta

Part of traditional Neapolitan cuisine of Italy, vongole is usually cooked with olive oil, a good amount of garlic, chopped parsley, fresh clams and a splash of white wine. This Asian take on the Italian ‘pasta vongole’ has a delicious Thai twist!

One-Dish Gula Melaka Bread and Butter Pudding

Bread and Butter Pudding is a classic British dessert that’s perfect for a Christmas gathering, but we’ve given it an indulgent and familiar Asian twist with tropical flavours of pandan kaya and gula melaka palm sugar.

Healthy Kitchen: Meat Free Protein Recipes

Going meatless? Simply wanting to eat healthier? We've got you covered with these delicious meatfree recipes that incorporate meat free protein for the same delicious umami taste.


Meat Free Butter Chicken

Swap chicken pieces with Quorn’s meatless “chicken” in this creamy meat free Indian classic. The key’s the yogurt-tomato bath that’s infused with ginger, garlic, deeply scented cumin, and warming garam masala. But first, fry up the meat free protein till it sizzles to a golden brown (or slightly brown if you want just a touch of crisp), then coat all over with the ghee-fragrant gravy.

Meat Free Thai Red Curry

A hassle-free vegetarian curry that is full of flavor. While it is meat free, this Thai Red Curry is filled with juicy protein pieces from Quorn to satisfy your belly. Simply pan fry the meatless pieces before mixing it into the curry to simmer and soak up the fragrant spices and rich coconut milk. The addition of diced mangoes enhances the dish by balancing out the creaminess of the curry with its bright flavors. Best eaten with rice and a healthy serving of broccoli.

Meat Free Bibimbap

The super healthy Korean rice salad of bibimbap is tossed with another meat free ingredient of Quorn mince. The rest is the same snappy delicious mix of sliced carrots, cucumber, juicy beansprouts and vinegary chewy rice that soaks up all the sweet-spicy Gochujang sauce. For the best way to enjoy Quorn protein, first drop a pack into hot oil and let them sizzle for a bit.

Meat Free Katsu Curry

Be sure to make a bed of warm Japanese rice for this fragrant, thick Japanese curry with crisp meat free “katsu”. You’ll need to first pat Quorn’s fillet pieces with breadcrumbs, bind them with eggs and into hot oil they go for the classic golden katsu crunch. Add sweetness to the curry with an apple and onion, and don’t forget the typical potato and carrots that make this Japan’s favourite stewy curry dish.

Tofu Bun Cha

For a big but light meal, dig into a crumbly, crisp litter of coconut flakes patted into fried tofu steaks. Its equally flavourful sidekicks are crunchy, juicy veggies of cucumber, carrot, radish and colourful cabbage.
