Kangkung Belacan

I have already introduce to you Kampung Fried Rice/Nasi Goreng Kampung ? Today, its another one of our Malaysian dish. A veg dish. Kangkung Belacan or water spinach stir fried with belacan. What is belacan? Shrimps fermented in salt. Like petai ( Sambal Bilis Petai ), you either learn to digest the smell and taste of belacan, or no matter how hard you try, its still a no-go for belacan. Up to you. After all? What is a food pleasure to one, may not necessarily be for others. But for this typical Malaysian lady? Belacan. No way I can say no to belacan though you can't eat belacan just like that. Belacan is actually one of our Malaysian cooking ingredients. A tiny bit definitely goes a long way due to its saltiness and when cooked alongside the rest of the needed ingredients like for this Kangkung Belacan, oh-my. Malaysian hunger throne. Just kangkung belacan and a plate of rice? A major food deal personally for me.
