Microwaved Cabbage and Carrot, a Bachelor’s Tale

Microwaved Cabbage and Carrot

The House of Annie has been pretty quiet lately, as Annie took the kids with her to Kuala Lumpur to visit with friends and family. I’ve been staying here at home in Kuching, living the bachelor life for the past five days. Fortunately, there’s a public holiday coming up on Friday so I’ll be joining Annie and the kids in KL for a few short days over the coming weekend. (Yay!)

Hurricane Popcorn

There are lots of flavored popcorns out on the market but a uniquely Hawaiian twist on this popular snack is known as “hurricane popcorn”. It was invented by the Hawaiian Popcorn Company but you can take the components and make it yourself.

The arare is a Japanese snack of roasted rice crackers seasoned with soy sauce. Furikake is very finely chopped dried seaweed. Of course you know microwave popcorn.

Just pop the corn, pour it out in a bowl, sprinkle on the furikake, and dump the arare on top. For added flavor, shake on some li hing powder. Then mix it all together.

Good to the last kernel!
