Each beginning of the year, I promise myself to be an active writer or blogger ... but never gets fulfilled. Too busy? Too lazy? Well it can be for many reasons. So .... let's mark an entry for 2021, and see if many more to follow. This is a pretty simple recipe to make. The only effort. required here is to thinly sliced the white cabbage. This three ingredients salad is nice to have with rice or on sandwiches (you can strain it after a while). The ingredients: Pieces of white cabbage - soak in a plain water for about 30 minutes. This will make it crispier. The thinly slice it. 1 large Onion and red chillies - also thinly sliced. Put everything in a bowl. Season it with vinegar (any kind will do), salt and sugar.

Air fried red snapper

Assalamualaikum.... Its red snapper again. Well.... i bought an almost a kilo red snapper's tail and there's only two of us. As usual... I will always find the easiest way and approah to cook.... the fastest too. And this is what i make using the air fryer. Healthier insha Allah. 1 slice of red snapper marinated with the salt and tumeric powder. Then sprinkle some olive oil. I laid a piece of aluminium foil so that the fish will not stick to the wire rack of the air fryer. I raise the edges of the foil so that any excessive oil will not drain to the bottom of the fryer. This is for easy cleaning too. Then i placed the fish. Set the temperature to 160 and time for about 15 minutes. I turned the air fryer on. And.... whalla! The fish is ready. It is so juicy and tender. For the french beans... i cleaned it. Put into the skillet and sprinkle some olive oil. Turn the heat on and begin turning or flipping the beans (as they cooked very fast). When ready, just add pinch of salt
