White Pita Bread


I used to be scared of baking pita. I was worried it won't puff.
When I made my Bhatura, only one puffed up nicely. Very discouraging.

One day, I invited my brother over for dinner, and I asked him what did he want me to cook? He wanted Middle Eastern fare, served with Pita Bread. Aduuuiiii!!!! Where can I get Middle Eastern Style Pita that is thin and fluffy? I'm not in KL.

He asked me if I can make pita bread, I said no!

Long Beans Braised Noodles 豆角焖面


*25/6/2019 Updated: Instructional Video beneath recipe

I first saw long bean braised noodles some time ago, and did more reading up on it. There are many versions online and finally I settled for this one. FYI, it's a popular noodle from Beijing 

The first time I cooked this, I used store bought wanton noodles and followed the recipe to put in the raw noodles straight into the wok. It became a lump of goo that made me feel aweful. I felt aweful because I wasted dinner, the pork, the organic beans, the noodles....it's all money. Local wanton noodles are heavily coated with starch to prevent them from sticking,and so, if we put them in..chances are the starch coating on it will cook and make everything lump together. Why didn't I think of that? I was angry with myself
