I know it has been a long silence. That's normal as I am not a hardcore blogger. Doing this just as a stress-free activity ☺.
And today is A Nasi Daging on our get together meals. Lunch when everybody is around. I made some dalca too to have with the Nasi Daging but did not snap a photo of it. In fact this photo is the only one I had managed to snap before everybody hungrily feasting it.
3 cups of rice
1/2 kg Beef
1 large Onion and garlic - sliced
1 inch ginger - sliced
The three stooges - cinnamon, star anise and clove
1 tomato - cubed
2 table spoon of cooking oil
2 table spoon of kurma powder
Boil a half kilo beef in the Noxxa pressure cooker for about 45 minutes for tenderness. Make sure the boiling water will be sufficient for cooking the rice later.
Meanwhile, in another pot, saute the onion, garlic, ginger and the three stooges in a hot oil. Add tomato.
Then, I added some thinly sliced beef and the kurma powder. Add some water. Cook till the meat is tender
When the boiled beef is ready. Take the beef out.
Since I wanted to use the Noxxa for the 7 minutes cooking, I remove the beef and its boiled water to another container.
Gently pour the sauted ingredients into the Noxxa pot. Set to stir fry. (The task will be simpler if you have two inner pots).
Add the washed rice. Mixed well. Then add the liquid from beef stock. Add some salt of course. Turn the stir fry off.
Then turn the high pressure on and set to 7 minutes cooking. That' s it.
Meanwhile, prepare the 'Air Asam' which is a must to accompany the Nasi Daging.
For the Air Asam:
* 3 red chillis
* 2 cili api (you can have more if you want)
* About 1 inch belacan
Blend all these ingredients in a blender with just a small amount of water.
One large onion - thinly sliced
2 tomatoes - thinly sliced
Quater tea spoon of Adabi Asam Jawa xtra
1 tea spoon kerisek ( i did not put this as my Sabrina is allergic to coconut)
Combine everything into the blended ingredients. Add some salt and a pinch of sugar. Mix well.
The beef that was boiled earlier should be sliced thinly and to be eaten with Air Asam and Nasi Daging.
Yups. That's all. When the rice is ready, it is ready to eat. You can enjoy it with dalca and some papadam.
Its a delicious alternative for iftar too.
