Kerabu Mangga (Mango Salad)

Kerabu? What is kerabu? Kerabu is basically our Malaysian, Malay style (Sayur Lodeh, Sambal Petai Bilis & Masak Lemak Nenas) raw salad. Nothing much to do actually when this kinda of kerabu is a concern, though for some other types, sometimes a tiny bit of cooking is involved (Gado Gado), but generally we should just look at tossing and mixing the ingredients together (Chicken Feet Kerabu, Thai Mee Hoon Kerabu & Prawn Cocktail). Kerabu Mangga or Mango Salad? Ohlalala! Dang a million times. I bet you are agreeing how attractive and tempting this mango salad is (Prawn Mango Curry)? Of course. I should vouch. Not only temptation to the highest degree, its also a burst of freshness and crunchiness (Shrimp Thai Salad, Watermelon Salad & Cucumber Yogurt Salad). Can you imagine the sweet sour mango notes, spiciness from chillies, appreciated acidity from shallots, fresh burst of mint leaves and of course crunchiness of nuts, all coming together? My-my! Can't get enough right? And Kerabu Mangga by far is a great pairing for rice and other side dishes or as a start-up before your main course. So, tell me, why slog in your kitchen for a veggie side dish when mango salad is the wonder easiness. Oh, before I forget, its a vegetarian version as well without compromising on deliciousness. 

Ingredients
1 large unripe mango - remove skin and slice into thin long stripes? 
1 red chilli - slice thinly
2 birds eye chillies - slice thinly (optional)
4 shallots - slice thinly
4-5 sprigs of mint leaves - shredded (or coriander leaves)
1/2 tbsp lime juice (depending on the sourness of the mango)
1/2 tbsp powder palm sugar 
1/2 cup roasted cashew nut or peanuts - coarsely pounded (I used cashew nuts)
Salt for taste

Method
Toss all ingredients together before serving.

  8. Wow very lovely and tangy mango salad, i have never added peanuts or cashews before to mango salad. Its a nice twist and makes it crunchy and yummy.

  9. Oh I heard, the ruling party won with only a slight margin & the opposition party is looking to take it to streets!! It is indeed 'demo crazy', rightfully put. As citizens, there is only so much we can do & leave the rest. I have visited Malaysia during my school time, have seen a mix of races living harmoniously. Hmm.. I hope things turn alright for you guys soon, Nava.

    About the salad: Gosh, very tempting - raw mango is one great ingredient. The pounded cashew/peanut on the salad is a nice idea to give the crunchy feel. Love it. Nice clicks too.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
