    I am always for steamed cuisine. In fact, I made dinner with all steamed dishes last night! The dumplings made it! Yay!

    I’m a big fan of steamed cupcakes. Yours look great and win my heart. :)

    I never had a steamed cupcake and am amazed you can do that with a microwave! It looks so perfect and so scrumptious!

    I totally agree with Marysol’s comment about taking microwave cooking to a new level! You’re so creative with your cooking and it shows.

    The dumplings are so cute, they’re like mini purses. ^-^ And the steamed muffins look so soft, I would be tempted to poke a hole in the middle with my finger teeheehee!

    I’ve never ever steamed a cake in my microwave. The only thing I have ever done in it is to reheat up food. Haha … but this looks really good and lesss washing up too with the microwave.

      Thanks! It is a stabliser and gives a more “airy” texture to the cupcake. If I’m not wrong, it’s more commonly known as ovalette in Australia. You can find it at the baking section of supermarkets.

    Can’t believe you can make all these versatile goodies in the microwave. You’re really opening my eyes!

    Hi Wiffy
    I would love to try out your nasi lemak recipe using the microwave oven. But I am not sure if I’ve interpreted the measurements as stated in your recipe correctly. This is with reference to the water – coconut milk ratio. Say for example, for 1 cup rice, I need 1.5 cups water and 3 cups coconut milk?!?! This seems like a lot of liquid. Also, did you use packet coconut milk or you make it from scratch?


    • wiffy replied: — November 19th, 2010 @ 4:31 pm

      “Add in 1 part of the required amount of water, plus 2 parts coconut milk into the cooker.”

      Hi there, what I meant by the instructions above was, if the recipe calls for 1 cup water, use 1 part (i.e. 1/3 cup) water, and 2 parts (i.e. 2/3 cup) coconut milk. I use those tetra pak coconut milk, but if you can make it from scratch it’s even better. Hope this helps :)

        Hi wiffy
        Thanks for the advice. I will give it a try one of these days. By the way, I tried some of your recipes like easy steamed fish and fried bee hoon with stewed pork. They turned out rather well. Looking forward to more postings of your recipes. Keep up the fantastic work!
