♥...Sardine Egg Paratha...♥

I actually wanted to do the Egg Paratha Rolls which I saw and drooled over at KakUmmi's, originally adapted from Gert's...

But then I was abit hesitated to make a curry just for us 2! (in other word, LAZY..)..

So, I thought of something quick and easy...but eatable of course and luckily the little sardine can came to my rescue. Hehe...

I used to order Roti Canai Sardin (Sardine Paratha) at Indian restaurants, where the Cook always put flat the paratha, add sardine chunks, onions and some chillies...fold over and cook!'s been quite some time since I ate that!

So, I thought to myself why not do the same...but make it like a topping instead of what the restaurant cook does...( b'coz I'm using the frozen paratha).

And the result was awesome, I would say! I didn't need any other accompaniments for I just ate it like that! Rishie liked it too though he's not a sardine fan!

I would still love to do the original style by Gert some other day, when I h…


Yup, that was our dinner last night!

Sorry, I just had the time to update...but not with the foodies I cooked today...nothing left for a single pose! When I was almost done with my cooking this Aunt came over with her sons. So, I was busy treating them while finish up my kitchen cleaning as well.

Then, straight to the dining for lunch! Luckily I cooked more today (usually just for us 3) no worries! Food was enough!

After that, my mom and granny came over...and the treat continued...hehe..

Okey, back to the title again...our dinner last night...hehe...

Having no idea on what to eat...and to make it simple...I simply toasted the hotdog buns, fried chicken sausages with some margerine, fried 2 eggs, chopped onionsand cucumbers. Finally, squeezed some chilli and mustard sauce. Done!

I completely forgot the salads though I do have them in stock! Could have been better...

Okey, till we meet again...
