He took over the kitchen one Sunday afternoon, he cleaned, he chopped, he weighed, he cooked, he jotted down ingredients and make some notes.

Food of Thailand

I was given the most important task, that is ~ tasting

This is how we spend our weekends, if we are not busy running, driving, waiting, planning our schedule around kids' social calender (which happen to be quite full!!!).

Putting 'em together

  2. Spoon 3 teaspoon of seafood mix onto the coriander leaves. 
  3. Sprinkle some golden fried shallots. 
  4. Fold in the sides; left, right, top and bottom to enclose the filling and form a parcel. 
  5. Serve as entrée with sweet chilli sauce or delicious to eat it on its own.
Note to self: to try with cut up bird's eye chilli, when he makes this again.
