Time to Eat...

September 01 : Dinner... Home made Sukiyaki



Today decided to get my hands dirty and make dinner. Wifey and I went and got some groceries and some fresh seafood.




We made Tom yum Steamboat. For those who are unfamiliar with Tom yum :

Tom yum is a soup originating from Thailand. It is perhaps one of the most famous dishes in Thai cuisine.
Tom yum is characterized by its distinct hot and sour flavors, with fragrant herbs generously used. The basic broth is made of stock and fresh ingredients such as lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves, galangal, shallots, lime juice, fish sauce, tamarind, and crushed chilis.



What's different here is that I am a chilli fan, and over here in Asia we have one of the hottest chili peppers around..called Chili Padi or Bird's Eye Chili Pepper. These tiny little fiery chilis point downward from the plant and their colors change directly from green to red. Although small in size compared to other types of chili, the chili padi is relatively strong at 50,000 to 100,000 on the Scoville pungency scale (Close to Habanero)
