It's Chicky, Chicky Time!

The entry today is Cornflakes Chicken. I got the recipe from yani at but as usual, I have adapted her recipe. This recipe is easy and the outcome tastes like KFC Popcorn Chicken (well, at least to me it is..hahaha). It is crunchy and the meat is still moist although it is deep fried. Those mommies with little time but really want to see their kids enjoy eating, do try this recipe. Why did I say so? My darling princess Atush is quite picky and my hero Firdaus is one of the most fussy eaters I have ever met and they love the chicken. In conclusion, it must have tasted good. What do you think?


2 pieces of chicken breast ( cut into long strips)
1/2 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of paprika (the original recipe uses chilli powder)
1/2 tsp of ground white pepper ( can be replaced with ground black pepper if u like it spicy)
1/2 tsp of meat curry powder
2 1/2 tbsp of plain flour
2 tbsp of water
1 egg
2 cups of cornflakes(coarsely crushed)

  • Mix well the chicken pieces with salt, paprika. white pepper and curry power. Marinate for 10 minutes.
  • Next, mix the flour, egg and water to a batter consistency.
  • Heat the oil in a pan.
  • Dip the chicken pieces in the batter. Then, coat each piece with the crushed cornflakes.
  • Deep fry until golden brown.
  • Serve!

Hey Fishy, Fishy

Hi all! It has been very, very long since I last blogged. Since the school break is on, I guess, I better make full use of the time to update this blog. Today's entry would be a simple dish using white pomfret. The actual recipe is by Mat Gebu from MyResipi but as usual, I've adapted it.

This recipe uses simple, every day ingredients. The fish is steamed so you know that it is healthy! Since hubby really enjoys fish cooked this way, it has become one of my common dishes. For those in a hurry, this recipe is good. It takes 10 minutes to prepare the ingredients and 10 more minutes to steam the fish! Give it a try!


For this recipe, you will need :

  • 2 medium-size white pomfret (gutted and cleaned)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • 2 1/2tbsp calamansi/lime juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5-10 birds eyes chillies (thinly sliced)
  • 2 lemongrass (thinly sliced)
  • 1 kaffir limeleaf (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 inch young ginger (thinly sliced)
  • 2 pips of garlic (thinly sliced)
  • 1/2 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp Maggi 'ikan bilis' granules
  1. Heat up your steamer until the water boils rapidly.
  2. Rub the fish with the ingredients in (A). Keep aside.
  3. In a bolw, mix well all ingredients in (B).
  4. Put the fish on a heatproof dish or a metal container. Pour the sauce on top as well as the cavity.
  5. Steam for 10 minutes or until the eyes and flesh turn white.
  6. Serve piping hot with plain, white rice!
