Asam Pedas Keladi

'Asam Pedas Keladi' or 'Spicy & Sour Yam Soup' is one of our favourite. Atikah likes it most. It's a kind of traditional dish and can be categorized as vegetables. We can eat both it's rhizome and it's stalk. The rhizome is delicious to be made into 'pengat' - a dessert which consist of coconut milk and sugar as the sauce and the rhizome that has been boiled. Or you can also have a fritter out of the rhizome.

For the stalk, we can turn it into a spicy soup. But! be careful with the resin. It might ruin your clothes if in contact.

A search in the internet found me with this interesting health facts about yam.

Yams provide a very good source of potassium and fiber. They also offer a good source of vitamins B1, B6 and C. In addition, yams are a good source of manganese and carbohydrates. They contain large amounts of B6, which required by the liver, and also contain folic acid and other B vitamins which help to detoxify excess estrogen. This action is especially beneficial in helping women improve symptoms of premenstrual syndrome. ~ from

No wonder our elders are so healthy, they eat lots of healthy food unlike the fast food generation that we are in now. This is how Atikah cooks the 'Asam Pedas Keladi'


4 stalks of yam
2 fresh red chillis *
1 onion*
3 garlics*
1 tsp whole black pepper
2 cups of plain water
1 tbsp tamarind juice
salt and sugar to taste

How to:
  1. Blend all (*) ingredients.
  2. Prepare the yam stalks by removing its outer layer. Boil till tender and rinse.
  3. Put all the blended ingredients in a pot, add water, tamarind juice and put to boil on a slow heat.
  4. Add the tender yam, add salt and sugar to taste.
It's ready. Serve hot. Eat with hot rice. Yummy, yummy.

And not to forget the yam plant is also very nice as a landscape plant too.

I rarely drop remarks, but i did some searching and wound up here "Asam Pedas Keladi".

And I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like some of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at additional places, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of
your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
