Bulgur Wheat – as Teriyaki Fried “Rice” with Japanese Curry


Hello fellow foodies!  I’m really happy to see this blog stats despite me not updating.  I’ve had a million things to do – okay not literally but it feels that way sometimes. My sister is getting married in August!  Indian weddings equate to planning for a year and lasting a week.  It’s really fun to say the very least!

Yesterday,  I whipped up this amazing new grain that I think I’m in love with.  Bulgur wheat. Inspired by Arps *its a shoutout* just so she knows.  She reads my blog sometimes, and its only fair.  I tried it in Singapore and loved the texture of it.


Teriyaki Fried “Bulgar Wheat” (Rice)  


  • 1 cup bulgar wheat
  • 1 cup spinach, finely cut

Seasoning: Dark Soya Sauce, Light Soya Sauce, Teriyaki Sauce & Pepper


  • Cook bulgar wheat in a rice cooker as you would prepare rice.  The proportion is 1:2.  Therefore 2 cups of water in this case.
  • Let the rice cool or refrigerate.
  • Put 1/2 tsp ghee on the pan and cook the spinach.  Toss the rice with the seasoning and serve.


This was purely an experiment and it was a success!  We will be having this often.  I will be experimenting with bulgur wheat as “rice”, in other cuisines too.

Peanut, Almond & Walnut Satay Sauce Noodles

Hello everyone!  A popular dish in Asia is Satay, which consist of skewers of veggies/meat.  This is topped off with a rich peanut sauce.  Truly indulgent!

I’ve tried making this slightly healthier with mixing almonds and walnuts in a peanut-based sauce.  It came out creamy & simply delish!  Had this with veggies and noodles for a “Vegeterian Satay Noodle” dish.




Peanut, Almond & Walnut Satay Sauce Noodles


For Sauce:

  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 10-12 walnuts
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1 green chilli
  • little brown sugar (1/2 tsp or more to taste)
  • Sauces to taste:  Soya Sauce (Dark/Light), Lingam Chilli Sauce (Sweet Chilli), Hot Chilli Sauce, Ketchup

For the noodles:

  • Mushrooms
  • Tofu (pan fried into cubes)
  • Capsicum
  • Beansprouts
  • 1 packet of noodles


  • Take all the sauce ingredients and blend with some water with a high powered blender.  FYI, I use a Nutribullet, which works fine!
  • Boil mixture in a pan till flavours are well combined.
  • Add sauces to taste.
  • In a separate pan, sauté the vegetables with some oil.
  • Add Chinese yellow noodles and combine.
  • Add peanut sauce and mix.
  • Garnish with some fresh vegetables.


I used to eat Satay Noodles in this vegetarian restaurant in Darling Habour in Sydney.  I would meet my dad once a week during his break from meetings and my break from Uni.  My sister would time her break similarly and we all would meet there!  I was reminiscing and thought I should try making SATAY NOODLES at home, with a bit of a healthier twist.  FYI – sauces are very unhealthy, next time I’ll try going completely natural without any sauce.  Let’s see how that pans out!

For now – I’m looking forward to Boxing Day Sales!!



Avocado (Mustard-Mayonnaise) Crusted Chips


‘Tis the season to be merry!  The Xmas spirit is prevalent in London which makes your spirits high as a result.  I’ve been trying new festive party finger food for sides!

Today,  I tried out Avocado Chips.  I came across a video on Facebook and felt this is a must try for B’s Kitchen!  So voila!  Except I tweaked it quite a bit, as it needed to be eggless (vegeterian).  The egg factor for crusted chips are usually the egg wash it is dipped in, prior to coating.

This got me thinking, dipping it in something thicker and more flavourful than just (cornflour + water).  I came up with an idea of mixing mayonnaise with mustard and a little of milk.  Ironically, it even resembled egg,  but I came up with something that’s vegetarian, eggless and flavourful.


Avocado (Mustard-Mayonnaise) Crusted Chips 

Makes: Around 6-8 Chips


  • 1 large ripened Avocado
  • 1/3 cup Flour
  • 1/2 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup Mayonaise + 2 tbsp Mustard mixed together
  • Milk
  • Oregano, Salt & Pepper
  • Oil Spray


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
  • Cut the avocado into wedges.
  • Mix a little milk with mayonnaise-mustard mixture till a bit thinner. The consistency should be of egg.
  • Add oregano, salt and pepper to the breadcrumbs.
  • Lay out three bowls with flour, mustard-mayonnaise mixture & breadcrumbs respectively.
  • Dip the avocado in the flour till its coated.
  • Next, dip in the mustard-mayonnaise mixture till its covered.
  • Finally, ensure it is well coated with breadcrumbs.
  • Spray the wedges with some oil and put bake for 8 mins.
  • Remove from the oven and flip the wedges over and spray with oil once again.
  • Return the tray to the oven for another 8-10 mins till the breadcrumbs are golden brown.

Enjoy with any dipping sauce of  your choice!

These Avocado chips were worth my messy hands!!  Give it a try for a healthy twist on chips.

Easy Vegan Masala Lentil Pancakes

One of my latest recipes to incorporate “daal’ in my diet without having it in the traditional sense!  I’ve been trying to be on a more dairy-free diet and am attempting to cut down on processed food.  This was a result of it, my mom used to make this for me when I lived in Australia, and called it “chill”.  I’ve tweaked it here and there – to my taste!

Hope you like this.🙂

It’s best eaten with green chutney, tamarind chutney and Indian pickles.

Eggless Tofu Frittata

Hey guys!  I’ve been experimenting with different vegetarian egg recipes.  Simply because I miss eating egg (I used to love the flavour and how versatile it is!)  It’s a good alternative to my tofu scramble recipe.

I tried out this recipe after searching for a few online, adjusted it here and there to my liking.  And after 1-2 tries came up with this.  It’s DELISH and its a Frittata.  And it’s eggless.  Eggless FRITTATA.  Okay, so the funny thing is when I made this my husband had no clue what a frittata was, but he loved the name. LOL.  Can’t blame him though, as he’s been vegetarian all his life (yes he’s missed out, but it is a cleaner life!)  I definitely agree that frittata is a pretty cool name!


And a closer look…


B’s Eggless Tofu Frittata

Makes:  One tray


  • Firm tofu (1 1/4 cup)
  • 1/2 cup cheddar or mozzarella cheese
  • Handful of goats cheese
  • Few veg sausages, baked and cut up into bite size pieces
  • Few potatoes, steamed and diced
  • 1 tbsp besan flour
  • 1 veg stock cube (I used Knorr but it really doesn’t matter much!)
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

Some salt, pepper, chilli powder to season


  • Blend tofu with some water (1/2 cup or so) and flour, stock cube and seasonings.  The consistency should not be too watery and not too thick.  It should be similar to a pancake mix (just a bit thicker).
  • Lay “veggie sausages” on the base of the oven-proof dish.
  • Pour mixture over it.
  • Top it off with the 1/2 cup cheese.
  • Bake at 200 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour.  (Check to see if its firm)
  • Top with goats cheese right after its out of the oven (we only need it to slightly melt!)
