  1. add water and mix with the chicken cube, crushed. Add 2 spoons of concentrated chicken stock to taste. for tom yam soup, substitute chicken cube with tom yam cube. set ready in the multi cooker to boil.
  2. mix the 3 sauces (chili, oyster and tomato), add 3 spoons of the soup. add crushed chillies and sliced cilantro. for a different taste, add crushed garlic, 1 spoon of sesame seed and crushed groundnut (it will be more concentrated).


i got the idea for the recipe from my Mak Nah, in exchange for my Lasagna recipe. it's rather simple, really. but the suggestion for the things to ride the steam boat, ha, that needs more thinking, such so we will get a balanced meal.

you can try these, should mental blocks happen (as it happened to me):

baby carrots

variety of balls

broccoli, sliced

sliced crabsticks
enoki mushrooms

frankfurters, sliced

prawns, deshelled and deveined

white squids, sliced and cleaned

sliced shiitake mushrooms
beehoon, boiled first
wantan mee, loosened
kangkong (chinese water spinach)

quail's eggs
sliced meat (optional to be prepped with garlic and salt)
crabs, cleaned and crushed
baby sawi (park choy)

variety of dim sums
