Steamed Pork With Salted Fish

Steamed Pork With Salted Fish! Trust me, a rapid explosion and burst of my or maybe even your forever appreciated and loved saltiness and spiciness in tender pork belly. Of course, pork belly and fats as well? Not really healthy, but I guess once a while would massively shake our health (Siew Yoke & Char Siu). Steamed Pork With Salted Fish is really so and very easy to make. Add all the ingredients in a steaming tray and steam, and you are done. My version I believe is somewhat unique and outstanding because I decided to go with my instinct and gut feeling on how I can further spiral and heighten Steamed Pork With Salted Fish to up and away, higher for a major revelation of tastes (Salted Fish Bone Soup, Salted Fish Bone Curry, Salted Egg Chicken, Dried Shrimp Sambal & Bean Sprouts Salted Fish).  Pork belly steamed alongside salted fish, chillies, soy sauce, ginger, and tamarind, garnished with coriander leaves. 

1 piece of pork belly (about 400g) - clean and cut into bit sizes
100g (or more) kurau/threadfin salted fish - soaked and cut into pieces
1 tbsp sweet soya sauce
(Note - you can use normal dark sauce and add tad bit of sugar)
6 shallots - remove skin and cut into two pieces
1 inch ginger - sliced
1 piece asam keping/dried tamarind
1 green chilli - sliced into medium size pieces
2 red chillies - sliced into medium size pieces
4-5 birds eye chillies (optional)
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt to taste (use sparingly) 
Add all the ingredients into a steaming tray.  
Pour water for extra drippings (only if you prefer).
Steam (keep the heat/fire very low) till pork is soft and tender.
Remove and garnish with coriander leaves before serving.

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.
