I am going for a New Year house party tonight and decided to make a coleslaw. I am really glad that I found a recipe which is so close to KFC... if not better. I modified the recipe slightly


2 packet coleslaw mix (8oz pack) - or you can cut diced the cabbage finely

i) 1/2 cup butter milk
ii) 1/2 cup milk
iii) 2 cups Mayo
iv) 2 tablespoon lemon juice
v) 3 tablespoon white vinegar
vi) 1 tablespoon onion powder
vii) 1 teaspoon celery seed
viii) 1 teaspoon salt
xi) 1 tablespoon sugar or splenda ( on hind side, I should have used less)


i) Combine ingredients for dressing together and mix well

ii) Pour dressing on the cabbage. You should not need all. Just pour enough to the texture you like ( Some like it dripping wet, some like it just moist)

iii) Chill for at least 2 hours before serving

Miso Soup

The weather has been depressing cold in the last few days. I decided that having cold salad on a cold day is really not appetising...and hence decided to make a soup.

The Japanese Miso Soup seems to be the perfect answer as it is simple and yet nutrious.

Ingredient :

1) Miso Paste with Dashi stock ( You will need to make the dashi separately if you use the normal miso paste)

2) Tofu - 1/2 block. Cut into 1 inch cube (I used the silken)

3) Wakame ( dry sea weed)


1) Sock a handful of wakame for 5-10 minutes till hydrated

2) Put to boil 2 cups of water

3) Add 1/2 tablespoon of miso paste ( more if you like it more flavourful)

4) Add the the tofu and wakame

5) Ready to serve when boil

Note: You can add other ingredients such as seafood, eggs, abura-age ( dry bean curd) and other vegetables. I like to add spinach.
