Chinese take a lot of tonic soup using herbs for health purposes. Most of them are very delicious. My family love chicken tonic soup. The easiest is to use the ready spices/herbs in packages. A delicious one is using Bak Kut Teh spices which you can easily get from Oriental shop. Just add a small chicken for 1 packet of the spices in a pot. Add enough water to cover. Add in a whole garlic and cook on medium to low fire for about one and half hours. Season to taste with oyster sauce and soya sauce. Enjoy this delicious soup.

Cheers,
shalinee.

I grew up eating a lot of root vegetables. My mom cooked them in many ways. One of them is to make vegetable fritters. I have tried my own version and found it goes great with salad, yoghurt and some coulis. I only used carrots, parsnip and sweet potatoes. Peel and grate them into a big bowl. Add some flour & water to make them stick together. Then pan fry them. Serve it hot with salad, youghurt and your favourite coulis. Tastes real good.



Cheers,
shalinee

Peanut butter mochi balls coated with sweet soya bean powder. A very popular Asian dessert. It's super easy to make. Just add 1C mochi flour (glutinous rice flour), 1/2C (a little less) water and 1t oil together. Knead until smooth. Make into small balls, flatten and fill with some peanut butter. Roll into a ball again. Add into boiling water. Once they float, remove and coat them with sweet soya bean powder or peanut powder.




Cheers,
shalinee

Asians love noodles. There are many types and all of them can be cooked in many ways. I love most of them. There's one very popular Chinese noodles called hand-pulled noodles. Tastes awesome. It was challenging to make it but it was fun and worth all the effort as the noodles were really awesome. The texture is so good. I made some yesterday and was utterly thrilled that it came out successful, after several failed attempts before.



Cheers,
shalinee

my favourite vegetarian dish....Okra Fried With Egg. It's very simple, easy and quick to cook. Goes great with plain rice. Okra is good for bowel movement.



Cheers,
shalinee

A bihon is Rice vermicelli its a rice noodle also popular in Asian cooking including Vietnamese. In the Philippine bihon is cooked stir-fry and stuffing for rice rolls..hope this helps
