delirious: (whorl)
more food, because I started cooking. so this soy sauce chicken recipe of mine, which my grandma taught me, but I think I amped it up a notch unhealthy. if it were healthy in the first place...

4-6piece chicken thigh, cut up into bite size pieces
2 slices of ginger
3 small shallots, diced
3 cloves garlic, diced
3 tablespoons light soy sauce
1.5 tablespoons dark soy sauce
1 teaspoon or tablespoon sugar (I am very liberal. I love my food with sugar in it ._.)
1 tablespoon oyster sauce (optional? I think my lots of sugar! compensated for it)
1 tablespoon tapioca starch
2-3 tablespoons water (or however much you need)
cooking wine
pot with lid

1. mix soy sauces, sugar, oyster sauce, a little bit of water, in a bowl (the chicken will exude water when it's being cooked).
2. heat oil, fry ginger until golden brown, add garlic and shallots and fry till you smell it, add chicken and stir fry until chicken is almost cooked (mostly white on the outside, little pink)
3. add the soy sauce, suger, oyster sauce mix. stir well.
4. using the same bowl, dissolve tapioca starch in some water and add to chicken. stir well
5. add a dash of chinese cooking wine and cover for a couple of minutes.

I also dumped a couple of hard-boiled eggs into the pot after I added everything. After chicken is done I used the sauce to cook the eggs more. UGH TASTES LIKE HOME COOKED FOOD AND I AM HAPPY \O/

- soak rice in water for 15min
- boil rice in chicken stock and then let it simmer on low and stir until the rice grains are all puffy
- turn off the stove and let it stand for 15min
- reheat it and add water, stir stir until it becomes smooth


will come back after making it. hopefully with success.


So I have cooked rice.
Boil water, idk, liberal amounts, need to figure this out later.
Add chicken stock (1 cube for 1L of water, I absolutely have no idea how much water I have. Add half cube anyway, it's just one portion of rice.)
High heat, bring to boil, add rice, stir, bring to boil again.
Lower to medium heat (because low heat seems too low and does not even simmer) and simmer for 15-20minutes or until desired consistency is achieved.
Turn off stove and let stand for 15minutes
Reheat and add cooked chicken, then stir in beaten egg
Add pinch of salt?
Lower heat to medium and I'll see how it tastes like...

Very doubtful.


The coffee cup that has cooled down
a little is like a merry-go-round
It mimics our inertia

Let's kiss one more time, and
expose your secret
Beyond your tongue and mine,
there's the truth...

kiss twice, kiss me deadly,
