Let's Cook Together With Lim Yixin

After watching my blogger friend Lim Yixin’s pictures , I remember when I was a student abroad (in Europe) many years ago. Our student hostel provided a kitchen where we could cook our meals everyday . The students from Asia were the most widely used the kitchen . So, every time we finished college, then we rushed into the kitchen,. The simple dish most easily made was omelette. Its main ingredient was egg. Having beaten in a bowl, the egg was then fried until cooked as shown in the pictures made by Lim Yixin . Other foods cooked depent on their respective nations.There were many kind of foods such as fried rice, fried noodles, fried chicken, fried tofu, etc.The most horrendous was the fried salted fish. Wow…It smells begging for mercy ! It’s very stinging, so it could make people cough. Many foreign friends were often angry because of  the fried salted fishes’ smell.

Another delicious food was curry (from India), sukiyaki and teriyaki (from Japan), kebabs (from Turkey), chicken “opor” ( food with coconut milk from Indonesia), various noodles food (from China) and many others.

If you have any recipes from your country, please don,t hesitate to write them as comments , Really appreciate your add.

Enjoy !.

Reading this make me even regret more we missed the opportunity last month meet.

If next time you are in the Netherlands or I'm in Jakarta we should grasp the opportunity. Well actually I plan to persuade you to prepare some of the delicious stuff you described in your post :).
