Feeding my hungry husband, one meal at a time.

My Big Fat Asian Dinner

My Big Fat Asian Dinner

If you have been following my Instastories for the past few weeks, you would have seen that November has been a pretty rough month for me work wise. I’ve literally had to take a step back from the blog, cooking, doing anything remotely fun in general and just focus on work and what I needed to do to get to the end of this semester! Well I’m almost there and starting to feel like myself again. I had been relying on my Nanima (grandmother) and Mother to help me out and cook for me a few nights for the past two weeks. I generally hate asking for help and am so grateful I had people around to support me. I knew I what I didn’t want to cook (Indian food) because they eat that everyday so my go to is either Italian, Mexican or Asian. Lately I’ve just had a massive hankering for Asian food. This is partly due to the hotter weather, I find it light and refreshing but also just damn tasty. This is what I made for my family!

At My Table

From Left to Right: Thai sweetcorn fritters, chicken chow mein, pickled cucumber and red onion salad.

Thai Sweetcorn Fritters

Light and fluffy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, this popular Thai street food was served as a starter with sweet chilli dipping sauce.

Chicken Chow Mein

I had no idea this next dish would turn out to be such a favourite!
In my home and in yours too. I doubled my recipe as I was cooking for 5 people. This dish just doesn’t disappoint and if you haven’t tried it yet, you really should. No really. No. Really.

Pickled Cucumber & Red Onion Salad

I wanted to make something refreshing to go along with the chow mein and fritters. They both contain carbs, one is very spicy and the other is fried. I couldn’t really do a regular salad as I didn’t want to take away from the main stars of the show but I needed something to uplift the meal. Cue pickled cucumber salad. So simple and yet utterly delicious.
