Asian Food Preparations – Enjoying the Ultimate Asian Cuisine

Asian food is by far one of the most varied cuisines on the planet with Japanese techniques, Korean flavors, Chinese sauces, Indonesian flavors and so much more that will influence your meal and even tantalize your pallet. If you’re not sure which type of cuisine best suits your taste buds, then there are literally thousands of recipes for you to choose from. For example, did you know that you can make an authentic oriental pizza right from scratch? Or how about stir-frying your favorite vegetables in a sweet and sour sauce, or how about getting your protein fix with tofu stir-fry?

Some of my favorite cuisines would have to be Szechwan Chinese, Malaysian, Indian, Thai, Indonesian, Philippines, and Vietnamese. In Malaysia I love to eat laksa which is a spicy coconut soup with peanut gravy. If you haven’t had a chance to try out any Asian foods then I highly recommend trying out a couple of them. Not only does each type of cuisine provide you with a different experience but also the different textures and flavours will really allow your palate to experience new textures and flavors you may not have accustomed to before.

When it comes to cooking traditional asian foods, you will want to keep your cooking as simple as possible. Simple ingredients mixed together and cooked in the most simplest of ways. You can also try adding extra flavoring such as onions, garlic, ginger, sesame oil and etc. The more spices you use, the more pungent and flavorful the dish will become which will appeal to everyone and not just your guests.
