My husband has brought a lot of new wonderful things into my life. One of my favorite is a collection of recipes from his Mom. She passed away before I met him, so sadly we never were able to meet. She had a passion for cooking and I can just imagine that we would have spent many hours cooking in the kitchen together. Luckily I have her recipes. There are a treasure trove of Chinese recipes from their many years living in Singapore. I have barely scratched the surface of the book mainly because there are so many good choices, I can never pick just one to make. Even this recipe is a compilation of a few different recipes in this book.
Even though my husband was born in India, he lived most of his life outside of India. His teenage years were in Singapore and that is where his Mom learned to cook Chinese food. Singapore is a food lovers paradise. Some of the best meals of my life have been there. Chili Crab is right up there, fresh whole crab cooked with lots of chili and spices. Your mouth burns from the spices but you can’t stop eating it. The sweet crab meat mixes with the spices for the most dynamic taste explosion. I could go on and on but I won’t torture you with the details.
Stir fries are an easy fix on a weeknight. I wonder how many times my Mother-in-Law would have made a stir fry for my husband when he was a child. She had 3 boys so I can just imagine the portions she had to make to satisfy all of their hungry tummies. At least through cooking her recipes, we can keep her in our lives and her memory alive for our child. When she is old enough, we will pass down her Grandmother’s cookbook to her. Hopefully she will enjoy cooking along with her Mamma. Check out Shrimpcakes with Raita for another adaption of a recipe from our special cookbook.
