Heavenly Strawberries!
About this Cook
Growing up in Singapore pampered me with great food available 24 hours. When I moved to USA, I had no choice but to learn how to cook my Singapore food myself. Thankfully, mom had taught me a lot of things since I was a kid. Now, I don't just enjoy cooking for my family, I make an effort to invite friends over once a month to "taste" Singapore without the airline ticket expense! :D
My favorite things to cook
Singaporean dishes
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lemongrass & galangal, other than onions and ginger - never been missed in my family's recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Every single time I made my husband do a "very yummy in my tummy" dance and see him smile - that's just beautiful.
My cooking tragedies
Having lazy days and sticking to instant noodles. Urgh!

Yogurt Chicken Curry
4 star for this basic recipe and because I have my own favorite ingredients that go along with curry, I decided to try this: 1) Instead of using plain yogurt, I used Baked Apple Pie flavor yogurt. 2) Added hot curry instead of mild because my husband and I love curry. 3) Also, for more flavor, I added my onion mix which consists of lemongrass, galangal, ginger, garlic and small onions. Definitely gave it a kick! 4) With a little hint of lemon juice, salt and cilantro to top it off. 5) I marinated the chicken with all the ingredients for at least an hour before baking. 5) Instead of cooking it in a saucepan, I baked it 375 degrees F for about 45 minutes. This is definitely a keeper! :)
