My Latest Endeavor – Asian Cooking

I love Chinese food and Thai Food so now I am on a quest to learn to make my own. So far I have learned to make egg rolls and fried rice. A friend of mine is from Thailand and she has been a great help to me. She has brought me dish after dish of Thai food to try, sparking my addition of recipes to learn. The only thing is, she doesn’t write down any of her recipes, they are all in her brain. Whenever I ask her how she made something, she tells me that I have to come watch her make that dish. She can’t tell me how much of the ingredients were used to make the recipe.

That is okay, Nom is a great cook, but she is also too busy to give me cooking lessons so I will learn how to make these dishes on my own. This past month I have learned to perfect my egg roll recipe. I can’t believe how easy they were to make, that is, once I was using the missing ingredient.

Secret Ingredient in Asian cooking, shh, don’t let them know I told you. – it’s – Wait for it !

Oyster Sauce!

Oyster Sauce = Ketchup

Ha ha ha. Who would have known that one ingredient would make such a difference?

In my search for Asian cooking recipes, I have found a couple of books to help out. Neither has a lot of recipes, but they do have popular recipes of the culture. You can get these books for your Kindle. That’s where I have mine.

I can’t wait to learn how to make papaya salad. Very spicy. Must eat with rice balls.
