Spices & Sauces - Harissa Chili Relish

Singapore is a blessed country with many kinds of food available for us. In this small country, one can taste all kinds of cuisine from all over the world. This week I have picked to introduce Harissa Chili relish which originated from Tunisia. Harissa is a chili sauce typically made of dried chilies, citrus, oil, garlic and a few warm spices including caraway seeds and coriander. 

Combination of both of these spices in the sauce will give your dish a kick of smokiness and a little bit of tanginess. It is a very aromatic sauce for any grain dishes, casseroles, soup or any light aromatic flavor dish. Biona Organic Harissa Chili Relish is wholesome and one of the best sauces to enhance the flavor of dishes without any unhealthy ingredients.

Spices & Sauces - Satay Peanut Sauce

Recently my family got me a torch burner as a gift. I decided to surprise them with their favorite East Coast Style Satays. Curated the wholesome home cooked Kebab A la Southeast Asia. Why? I want the best for my family like a balanced meal with lots of vegetables, meat and whole grain carbohydrates. It is important to choose wholesome ingredients for home cooked food. Skills can be taught, and choices can be made. Cultivate our families to eat wholesome food.
I am delighted to introduce the Organic Satay Peanut sauce for this week’s aromatic chargrilled BBQ food. You can enjoy a delicious home cooked grilled food in the convenience of your home. My two teenagers found pleasure in torching the skewers right before serving it. It is fun to involve our children in house chores. 
A family that eats and has fun together, stays together.

Spices & Sauces - Cayenne Pepper

Spices make our food flavorful, healthy and appetizing. At the same time, we don’t want any of the spices overpowering our dishes. Personally I believe the quality of spices are of paramount importance.
This week I would like to share about the importance of Cayenne Pepper. The cayenne pepper is a type of capsicum annuum. Cayenne peppers are a popular spice used in many different regional styles of cooking, and they have been used medicinally for thousands of years.
These peppers boast an impressive nutrition profile, which includes a variety of antioxidants that are beneficial for your health. Capsaicin, the active ingredient in cayenne peppers, is what gives them their medicinal properties including metabolism-boosting properties, the ability to relieve pain, aid digestive health, reducing the risk of cancer etc.
It also gives them their hot taste. In fact, how hot a cayenne pepper is depends on its capsaicin content. The more capsaicin it contains, the hotter it is. Cayenne pepper is not a chili powder substitute. It is a purer spice powder and only a small amount is needed to give heat to any recipes. This will lead to using less oil in cooking when less spice powder in the recipes compare with using curry powder or chilies powder.
