This recipe is from Mama Miyaki again. This dish perfectly complements the chicken karagi from my last post. I met water spinach for the first time in Cambodia. After cooking with it once I was hooked. It became a regular vegetable in my kitchen (is it a veg.? It looks more like green leaves to me..??). You could buy it all year round in the markets in Siem Reap. I loved the freshness and feeling of this super healthy food (do I think ‘healthy’ because we are brought up thinking ‘spinach’ is super healthy?)
Anyway, here are these luscious green leaves in their full splendour!
Phew, what a long title! This recipe is an extension of my ‘broccoli & coconut cream soup’ recipe. I even made another dish out of it! Really an experiment that tasted good like it is below rather than mixed with the soup I thought!
First of all apologies for not being able to reply to comments or likes and checking out the blogs of all the wonderful people who take the time to look at mine. I have a friend visiting me here for a week or two that I met in Bangkok 4 months ago. We spent a lot of time together and have developed a friendship and I am over the moon to have visitors that I can show around my new new home city:-) I will definitely get round to it!
Here’s a delicious and easy vegan soup recipe I created. Reasons being that I’ve read a lot of information on the net about vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower , cabbage and pak choi being good for reducing the activity of an over active thyroid. So I am trying to include more of these vegetables into my diet.
I’ve made this soup twice now and here is the recipe for my favourite version which is also the easiest. It tasted best without the optional veggies in the ingredients.

Here’s the recipe for the fried Chinese cabbage side dish that accompanied the bird curry I posted yesterday!!
Today I made this delicious soup. Got sick of watching TV and lying around being weak and feeling miserably bored!
So here is the third part and final part of the dinner I made last week when a friend came to visit from Kuala Lumpur. Here is the side salad and sauce recipe that accompanied the “Fried Cambodian Fish Bengali Style” and “slow fried 3 Aubergine & Pepper dish.
God, all these terms and names of dishes. This is new to me! Normally all I care about is that my food tastes good and is made with fresh and natural ingredients. Since I’ve started writing these recipes for this blog, I’ve noticed that I don’t know the names of many of the fruits, vegetables or other food that I cook with and eat. I know it in Bengali but not in English and sometimes only the German name pops into my head. And to make it more complicated now I’m learning Khmer 🙂

I was up at 4.30 this morning. By 6 I had cleaned my flat and done the washing. I wash by hand as I don’t have or need a washing machine. Then I was out running. I LOVE running early in the morning. The world is so beautiful and peaceful and so am I. No matter how busy the city, this early in the morning there’s a magic in the air.
Finally, this is the rhythm I want. After weeks of insomnia and topsy turvy sleeping patterns-waking up late afternoon because I can’t sleep all night or in the morning finally dosing off towards midday. Awful. I didn’t sleep more than my usual 4-5 hours last night. But sleeping at night makes a big difference.
I did my 5k this morning which is my norm. Still not very fast but that doesn’t matter. There is a steady improvement! I don’t have a pedometer at the moment so I can’t say exactly how far I ran. But my norm is 5k in 20-25 min. And I ran longer than 25 minutes.
After I came home I made myself this delicious salad!
