Air fryer fish


Our rather bland lunch today

Fish was coated with curry powder, turmeric powder, cornflour and pepper

Using Bayers air fryer, under 180 degree celcius, air fried 8-10 minutes, turning it over once.

We had plain mee hoon kueh in slow cooker radish and tomatoes chicken soup.

Supposed to be a rest day but seems like I have been busy since morning. Finally knocked off with my girl after our afternoon bath. Didn’t plan much for dinner as we are having leftovers.

1. Yesterday’s leftover air fryer kam heong pork – I just pan frying it with additional onion, dried shrimp, dark caramel sauce, water and corn flour water – let the pork simmer in the sauce before adding spring onions.

2. Leftover braised yam in black fungus – added more black fungus

3. Stew egg tofu with mushrooms (this is freshly cooked)

We will also be having spinach in slow cooker radish and tomatoes chicken soup.

Knead by breadmaker. Divide into 11 dough (one taken by my girl to play). Then roll, topped with cheese and egg. Rest for an hour. Baked under preheated oven of 170 degree celcius for 30 minutes.

Air fryer kam heong pork!


Pork marinated in:
Curry powder
Dark caramel sauce
Soy sauce
White pepper powder
Corn flour
Dried shrimp
Curry leaves
Dried chilies

Using Bayers air fryer, under 200 degree celcius, air fried for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Sides: Stir fry sweet potato leaves with dried shrimp and leftover slow cooker arrow root, apples and peanuts chicken soup

I fried an egg for my girl, and there’s tendency she wants noodles for dinner.. So will cook egg noodles with the soup!

Usually I cook dinner before napping, but this time I do it after napping – since I calculated time that it permits! Dinner in 20 minutes (exclude preparation time). “Magic” of air fryer.

**So sad I am not an ambassador – how many people ‘died’ in my hands – getting an air fryer since I got mine on Tuesday? Haha…

My girl’s lunch was spaghetti with garlic olive oil + quail eggs

Prepared by apprentice chef papa, who reacted with ‘so plain?’ when mama briefed him what to prepare.

Yes, she can still eat so ‘plain’ food even at 35mo. She enjoys the natural flavouring from food. No harm to do so! And so much easier to prepare.

“We add salt to food from force of habit or because we’ve learned to like a salty taste. Adding moderate amounts of salt to food for taste is acceptable, but excessive amounts of salt should be discouraged as the child’s taste preferences are formed early and large quantities of sodium may lead to high blood pressure later in life. So it’s a good idea to train children to avoid unnecessary salt.”
