Easy & Healthy Home-Cooked Meals

The first meal for dinner that I cooked after a half-year hiatus is this:

1. Cincai fried rice with onions, left-over shredded chicken breast meat and eggs.

2. Blanched organic veggie

3. Steamed pork ribs braised with sand ginger, shallots and tomatoes. The mil had cooked this earlier before she left for Hong Kong and frozen for emergency situations where I have no time to cook.

The fried rice and blanched veggie were cooked using my new Khind stir-fryer.

That was on a Monday, the day where Drama Queen gave me a scare after a fall from the stairs, which made me spend my entire morning at the hospital.  In the evening, Drama Queen asked me where her topical medicated cream was.  Fudge!! We had forgotten to collect it from the pharmacy after making payment!  I was busy exchanging Whatsapp messages with our insurance agent and she was busy burying her face in her thick novel. So I had to go to the hospital again in the evening to collect the cream.

Yesterday (Wednesday), I fried fish using the Khind stir-fryer.

While the fish was auto-pan fried in the stir-fryer, I pan-fried some chicken fillet with teriyaki sauce and turmeric using my non-stick granite pan.  That’s for Cass and Drama Queen’s school snack box for today (Thursday).

The past 3 days ever since the mil left for Hong Kong have been very hectic for me since I now have 1-2 hours deducted from the day to be allocated for cooking.

And just as I come to the end of this post, my next task is to prepare lunch for Drama Queen and Cass. They’ll be back from school in half an hour.  Within this 1/2 hour, I have to whip up a yummy egg sandwich and fruit smoothie for the 2 persnickety rascals before rushing down to the lobby to wait for them.  Super stress-nya!!  But thankfully I have my Izumio and Super Lutein to zap away the oxidative stress stewing in my body 🙂

Khind Stir-Fryer

I have always wanted to get an air-fryer and Thermomix (TMX) to  help me cook in the kitchen.  But lack of support from the hubs (he commented that these gadgets will eventually turn into another white elephant, duh!) and most importantly, lack of budget (the TMX costs over RM6,000!) have prevented me from getting those kitchen toys.   If you know me well, you’ll know by now that I dislike cooking as I don’t like prepping the ingredients, cleaning up grime and stains and washing the utensils. Well, I like cooking and baking but only if there was someone to help me with prepping the ingredients and washing up. Yeah, I know I am spoilt like that.  I cook for the love of my 3 princesses and always find ways to minimize the cooking time, cleaning up of kitchen and washing utensils.

Yesterday I got a new kitchen toy that will help me tremendously in minimizing the cooking time, cleaning up and washing up! The new Khind stir-fryer is an awesome automated electric cooker. It is a cross between an air-fryer and the Thermomix (TMX), sans the chopping and blending function in the TMX.  And the price is a fraction of that of the TMX.

My very first dish to test try with this baby is fried fish with turmeric powder. The mil was as excited as I was over this gadget.  Whilst she used the non-stick granite wok to stir-fry vegetables, I was beside her, putting fish into the Khind stir-fryer.  And while she stood in front of the wok to continue stirring the vegetables, all I had to do was to press a few buttons on the stir-fryer and  went back to my computer to continue working 😀

To prepare fried fish, all I have to do is:

1. Put oil and fish (can fit 2 medium to large pieces of fish) into stir-fryer

2. Press ‘Pan Fry’ button

3. Press 3 minutes

4. Press START button

5. Sit back and relax

6. When machine beeped after 3 minutes, I flipped the fish and pressed another 3 minutes to cook the other side of the fish.

7.  Did some revision with Cass as today is her Science test.

8. At the beep of the machine after 3 minutes, I removed the fish from the machine.

8. Repeat cycle again for the remaining fish.

Below – frying in progress – – 48 seconds left before the 2 pieces of fish are ready to be removed from the stir-fryer

 

The result – crispy skin with tender flesh.  Kids and I uber like the fish!

Check out Drama Queen slicing a loaf of bread, fresh from the oven. Someone was too impatient to wait for it to cool down *rolls eyes*

 

You can now pan fry fish everyday minus the sweat, stinky clothes and hair and oily kitchen if you get a Khind stir-fryer. It is so simple to cook yummy dishes using this stir-fryer and washing  the inner pot is easy peasy too.
