Chinese

Buttermilk Stir Fried Kai Lan

Kai Lan, the leafy Chinese vegetable, is now very cool. It’s dressed in golden, creamy buttermilk with a spicy attitude to show. If you want more sass though, toss in a few more sticks of chilli padi and a handful more curry leaves. After a brief stir-fry with butter, heavy cream and chopped garlic, Kai Lan is now the talk of the town.

Buddha's Delight

Forget what you know about vegetarian food. Buddha’s Delight, or Luohan Zhai, makes for a moreish, satisfying dinner. Traditionally eaten by Buddhist monks, this vegetarian stew is chock full of earthy shiitake mushrooms, crisp cabbage leaves simmered till tender, and a tangle of glass noodles bubbling in a base of sesame and kecap manis, or sweet soy sauce.

Honeydew Sago Pomelo

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as an ice-cold bowl of Honeydew Sago on a hot summer’s day, and you will see why! Balls of cold melon, sago and pomelo floating in a cooled mixture of honeydew and evaporated milk that is both sweet yet incredibly refreshing. Not into Honeydew? It can be replaced with durian, jackfruit or mango!

Kung Pao King Mushroom

Be prepared to see mushrooms in a whole new light. The Kung Pao King Mushroom (not chicken, as the sauce is generally used for) is a spicy, saucy, stir-fry of pure mushroom bliss. Infused in the hot wok is a scatter of lip-numbing Sichuan peppercorns, which you can use less for milder heat. A dash of roasted peanuts and lifting sesame oil and you’ll never turn back.

The Family Table

More people means more food, and here’s how you make for memorable and tastier family get-togethers with popular family recipes from Asian Food Network. Add flavors to the memories of sharing, loving, fighting, laughing, and making up with family. Spend less time worrying about what to make, and more time bonding with the ones you don’t treasure enough.

 

Indonesian

Murtabak Manis

Get ready for those calories because you will definitely sink your teeth into this traditional Indonesian dessert. A sweet treat, the Martabak Manis can be described as a hefty “pancake” pie –a thick pastry enveloping a filling of your choosing! Try it the local way and have it filled with chocolate, condensed milk, butter and shredded cheese.

Kapitan Curry Chicken

A Nyonya adaptation of Indian curry chicken, here’s something easy to whip up for those giant family dinners!

Otak-Otak

Traditionally eaten with rice or bread, the Spicy Otak Otak -or spicy fish cakes -packs a tight punch! A dish favoured in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, it is a delicious amalgamation of Southeast Asian spices, shrimp pasteand the Spanish mackerel wrapped in fragrant banana leaves. While best grilled over charcoal, the taste is still fairly authentic steamed or baked.

Thai Pandan Chicken

Infused with the sweetness and fragrance of pandan leaves, the Thai Pandan Chicken is a great appetizer or finger food for your party (or a quiet night in). All you need to get in business is some pandan leaves, chicken pieces and a variety of ingredients that can be found in any grocery store! To save some time, marinate the chicken the night before and pop it in the fridge.

Low on Carbs

Yummy without the tummy. The most delicious and keto-friendly ways to cut carbs. Healthier eating is a lot easier when it is delicious. Asian Food Network offers for the health conscious a buffet of options that help you cut calories and increase flavor.

Chinese

For added sweetness, throw in a handful of wolfberries! Serve hot with rice for a complete meal.

Chicken Arroz Caldo

Vietnamese Shrimps and Glass Noodles

Fresh and fabulous, the Vietnamese Shrimps and Glass Noodles Salad is a dish that will add some flair into your regular food roster. Quintessentially Vietnamese, this recipe is wonderfully textured and has layers of flavors, thanks to the use of fresh herbs and vegetables, with sprinkles of calamansi juice and fish sauce. One of the best things about this dish? You can make it in advance and refrigerated for later!

Keto Peanut Soup

Peanut Soup is probably the most iconic Chinese New Year dessert. It has always been a crowd-favourite, and now -ketogenic. Simply add sugar substitute Swerve for a sweeter taste, and xanthan gum to give it a lusciously thick and smooth texture. One bowl won’t be enough.
