Mackerel potato patties topped with sambal veggies

Cooking is a wonderful hobby and I certainly enjoy every aspect of it – planning dishes, trying out new recipes, adding little twists here and there, varying the sauces, preparing the ingredients, frying, boiling, stewing, etc.  But the best part about cooking is my man eagerly eating everything and being very happy afterwards 😛

So 1 night when we had our last meal late, I prepared something light.  The dish is so cheap, I almost feel embarrassed for the people who whine that healthy, home-cooked dinners are too expensive.  If one doesn’t eat enough junk food to feed a village at every meal, there WILL be enough to spend to prepare healthy dishes at home #haes.


Take a can of mackerel.  Use just 1 or 2 of them.  Mash, then mix together with 2 mashed potatoes.  Shape into mini balls, flatten slightly and brush with egg.  Fry them till browned and crisp, then set aside.  Melt fresh butter, brown garlic and cook sliced onions and green peppers and diced mushrooms till soft.  Add stock as needed.

A few drops of soy sauce, a dash or 2 of Chinese rice wine and enough sambal is enough to make the veggies tasty.  Spoon onto patties : )


Wishing you fun,
