 - Breakfast:     Cheerios with milk, coffee, and an apple.

 - Breakfast (alt):    Toast with peanut butter, small yogurt, coffee, and banana

 

I'll think about other meal favorites and come back.   Breakfast is usually the same more often so it was easier to think of

Chop Suey (my grandma's recipe)

Olive Oil

 





Box9 I would never use Olive oil in any Asian cuisine whether it be Chinese, Indian or Japanese.... not just because of it's slightly lower smoking point, but because it's prominent flavour doesn't lend itself well to the ingredients associated with this type of cuisine. You're better off using an oil with a more neutral flavour.   Smiley Wink


Thanks for the suggestion, The_Force. Will keep it in mind from now on. It was only one of the ones that we used over the years if we couldn't get a hold of the other ones. Which ones do you like to use?

Come now. You live in Japan and you give us standard imperialistic cuisine.

Jasmine rice is the best. I use 2 cups of water and 1 cup of jasmine rice. Heat for 30 minutes, bring to a boil then set the oven to low for the rest of the time. @bob-maul

In the UK, many Chinese restaurants use Peanut oil which gives the authentic BCR flavour (British Chinese Restaurant) so I tend to use either this or a vegetable or sunflower oil for stir-frys, chow meins, fried rices etc. 

 

I also add a small amount of MSG near the end of cooking for an authentic 'take-away' taste.(you don't need to add as much salt for seasoning by adding the MSG Smiley Happy )

 

For Indian cuisine I use, again, just a vegetable or sunflower oil, so as not to conflict with the spices and herbs.

 

Olive Oil I reserve mainly for Mediterranean cuisine. Smiley Happy

Thanks for the info, The_Force. I generally try to order Chinese Food without MSG though, since I'm rather sensitive to it. As for the oils, will keep those in mind when making chop suey in the future.
