Fried Crab with Chilli and Black Bean Sauce Fried Crab with Chilli and Black Bean Sauce 10 Jun 2008
This is one of the easiest suppers to make, but somehow, however much I know this, it always surprises me. Not in the cooking, so much as in the eating: I can't believe, each time anew, how deep and textured and full-throttle, in a sweet, comforting way, this tastes, when all I've done is a bit of shopping and some light stirring. If you have some fresh prawns, so much the better, but I stipulate frozen ones below since I regularly keep them in the freezer. Red Prawn and Mango Curry 14 Jun 2008

These are the classic sesame seed sweets - toffee with toasted sesame seeds similar to peanut brittle. The best way to make these is with a sugar thermometer to get the correct temperature (150°C). An alternative method is to have a bowl of cold water and as you heat the sugar, drop a little into the water and look for the brittle toffee stage. Sesame Seed Sweets (Ka Noom Nga-dtat) 10 Jul 2008
