Day 2 Ramadhan: Asam Pedas Utara and others

Salam all,

On your left is the dish that we had for iftar on the second day of Ramadhan.

From top left, clockwise: the salted Kurau fish, Asam pedas Utara, Omelet, Chicken in black soya sauce (ayam masak kicap), fried kurau.

Center: Spinach special

Very simple menu but really mouth watering especially with the salted kurau there.

I did not plan to cook much on 2nd day of Ramadhan. Ayah planned to go to surau for iftar with Hakim (he said that it's going to be a month event). When there's only Sabrina and me, the Ayam Masak Kicap is good enough. At almost 5.30pm, he suddenly changed his mind and decided that even with pizza is better if we had it at home, which indicates that he wanted to have the iftar at home. Digging into my fridge for a fast and easy dish, I decided that it's going to be the Asam Pedas, northern style.

3-4 red chillis*
1 red onion*
3-4 garlic*
5g anchovies
Fish (any)
Tamarind juice
Daun Kesum
1 inch belacan
salt to taste

How to:
1. Blend all the * labelled ingredients and put in a pot for cooking.
2. Put in the anchovies, fish, belacan and daun kesum. Let it simmer for a while.
3. Next, put in the tamarind juice and once boil, put in the fish and salt. Let it simmer.
4. Ready to be served.

Easy & Healthy!!!
