Tonkatsu/Pork Cutlets

Non Halal

Tonkatsu is one of the most beloved “western style” Japanese foods in Japan. It is thinly pound pork chop breaded with flour, egg, and Panko (bread crumbs), then deep fried. Tonkatsu is almost always accompanied by thinly shredded cabbage, curry sauce or with thick brown Worcester-based sauce.
I’ve been craving for this cutlet since I came home from my month long vacation in Japan. So I decided to make some for our dinner a few weeks ago. I serve it with rice and broccoli instead of curry sauce or tonkatsu sauce. It’s not the healthiest food but rather comfort food for me.

Sesame Cookies

I love these cookies because they’re quick and easy to make. You don’t even need a mixer to do this as you can just mix it by hand. It is lightly sweeten but you can add more sugar to it. The sesame seeds gave these cookies a very nice nutty flavor to it and it goes really well with a cup of tea.


1 stick/1/2 cup unsalted butter – room temperature
½ cup of sugar
1 cup + 3 tbsp of flour
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking soda
1 egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup of sesame seeds, lightly toasted

Stir-fry Glutinous Rice

First I would like to apologize for the long hiatus from blogging. I’ve been busy with my daily life, dealing with moving, home based business and also traveling. I guess after more than 10 years of blogging I slowing losing my momentous doing it. I mostly post my cooking on my Instagram now. You can follow me there if you want to. Anyway, here is a short update on a recipe I did some time ago. I made this dish with some left over steamed glutinous rice.
