Creations Called My Own

As U can guess from the title. Yes!, my own creations again.

I took out the chicken pieces from my fridge, and couldn't figure out what to do with it. These days, I seem to have lost touch of cooking even tho' I've been busy in my kitchen. Actually didn't want to deep fry things today, but what the hack, just do it, Grace! :P

Went searching, clearing my cupboard & realised that some powders have been left there untouched for quite some time. So decided to mix everything together, to form a dish, a yummy dish infact. Never thought that it would turn out really good.

Haven't been eating this for awhile. Bought a firm tofu last week, and decided to come out with new ways to cook it instead of the normal frying or boiling with soup.

Am happy that these 2 new creations of mine turned out pretty well, hubby gave full marks with a smiling face! :)

Here are my recipes, do try them and let me know how u feel.
