Like many, I feel hungry more frequently in the winter months as compared to other months. Rather than braving the cold in effort to dine out, I’ve found myself spending more time cooking in the comfort of my own kitchen. As I grew up in a rice eating household, nothing fills me up more than a bowl of rice!
When I was asked to join SunRice Recipe Box Challenge along with other bloggers and Poh Ling Yeow (Masterchef Season 1 Runner Up, star of SBS’ Show Poh & Co and SunRice Ambassador), I was excited at the opportunity because I can have all the fun of a cooking challenge without being on TV ha!
I have accepted the challenge from Chantelle at Fat Mum Slim where I created a recipe based on mystery ingredients set by her. You can see my recipe creation on my Instagram page here.
Now it is my turn to pass my list of mystery ingredients to Poh for her SunRice Recipe Box Challenge. My inspiration for the list was based on the ingredients I had in my kitchen at the time. As if being in one challenge is not enough, I wanted to join in the fun again by creating a recipe based on the list I provided for Poh, to see if I could rise to my own challenge!
The list contained the following:
- SunRice Rice & Quinoa Steamed Rice (Microwave Rice Range)
- Brussel sprouts
- Coconut milk
- Sambal Oelek
- Curry paste
This tasty grilled turmeric salmon and brussels sprouts rice bowl with coconut curry sauce was what I came up with. This dish requires minimal handling and is ready to eat in 30 minutes. As a shortcut to making this rice bowl, I used the cooked rice and quinoa from the SunRice microwave range.
