Takoyaki Balls

I discovered these small balls of wonder while in Singapore. It's an immensely popular Japanese snack made with a wheat flour batter filled with small bits of octopus (traditionally) but there are other variants with shrimps, chicken, ham, cheese etc. Served with Katsuobushi or dried bonito (tuna) flakes , mayo and barbecue sauce, these are all I need to satisfy my hunger pangs as well as be generous to my palate.

Beef Rendang

An Indonesian dry meat curry dish, the flavours of Beef Rendang unfold in layers, like a stick of Willy Wonka’s three-course-dinner chewing gum. Starting with lemongrass, galangal, Kaffir lime with a torrent of chilli to whirl up the dish ending with you starting to get a taste of the coconut milk as you continue to chew. Accompanied with sticky rice, this one's sheer gluttony.

You do get variations of this dish with Chicken, Lamb etc.

Green Curry

My all time favourite, this is one savoury dish I would have as my last meal. Easiest to cook , this Thai delicacy is a festival of flavours, key ingredient being the green paste made of cilantro roots(not cilantro leaves) , fresh green chillis and a pinch of palm sugar , along with loads of veggies - eggplants, bamboo shoots, colourful bell peppers, pea aubergine etc. You won't know what I am talking about until you try this dish, definitely with sticky rice.
