Nasi ulam

Assalam,

Dah bersawang blog ni.... tapi dapurku tak lah bersawang seperti ni. Cuma masa tidak mengizinkan untuk berbait di sini. Tapi hari ni rasa terinign nak berkongsi... sebenarnya untuk peringatan pada diri sendiri. To be honest, when viewing my past post, it refreshes my cooking mood as well. Also, there are recipes that I only I have it here for future references.

And today, it is going to be nasi ulam.  Hmmm.... I love it. Delicious and healthy too.

Mak memang suka makan ulam-ulaman. Dan kalau mak bertandang ke Shah Alam, masa tu lah ulam-ulam di 'herbs garden' comelku dituai. Dan ketika itulah, pelabagai ulaman dan kerabu menjadi hidangan keluarga. Bukan aku tak suka ulaman dan kerabu ni .... tapi proses pembuatannya agak mencabar masaku. I am making it today as my assistant is here to help ... Atikah is back from hostel, and she loves ulaman as well.


From top-left: fresh ingredients from garden, sliced ingredients. Bottom: the nasi ulam

The ingredients:
Those picked from my garden:
- kadok
- cekur
- daun kunyit
- sirih cina (as my mother in-law calls it)
- beluntas

Others
- onion
- ginger
- grated coconut (kerisek)

** Slice all the above ingredients thinly

Seasoning
- salt
- pepper
- sliced dried fish (fried and pounded) or you may also use fresh fish (steamed and de-boned)

Main: one bowl of rice (cooled)

How to:
1. Prepare the rice.
2. Mixed all the sliced ingredients and grated coconut with the rice
3. Add and adjust the seasonings.
4. Ready to be served.

I had it with some sambal ikan bilis and fried dried anchovies. I had two plates of rice for this ..... sebab tak boleh buat selalu. Its healthy, but too many of it may caused excessive carbohidrates in the body ---- gemok wehhh....

Till then .... enjoy trying.... enjoy eating...

Wassalam.
