Time is never enough. I have a growing list of new recipes to try before moving out of Asia. Trying to catch hold of my few months left in Singapore before starting a new phase of my life. The tofu patties were a little difficult to hold together but with a little patience it will out work out well. Cooking is all about patience and it is therapeutic at times to go through the process with rushing through as we do with life.

Curried cauliflower

I found some amazing sambal belachan in my fridge and decided to do something with it. I considered the options of nasi lemak, stir frying or making fried rice. But they all seemed to greasy and filling so I settled on this light cauliflower recipe which will serve as a perfect side with a taste of Singapore.
