Canned sardines. I must say my savior. And sardine is actually quite a favorite as well in my house. Overall too, when we speak about Spicy Sardine Sambal With Potatoes? Tell me about spicy sardine alongside floods/banjir of Rasam on rice. Pow-wow right? All fingers swimming in rasam and spicy sardine, of course potatoes mashed in as well when tucking in? Mouthwatering right? Spicy Sardine Sambal With Potatoes. I know. My pictures are quite disheartening, but my recipe I vouch is not. Believe me. Make this my style to Spicy Sardine Sambal With Potatoes for your food love and you will believe in me deeply.

When you are at an infant stage of cooking, cooking must be infant too. In other words, what I am trying to say is that, let's not get ambitious if we really don't know the meaning of cooking. Henceforth, if you are a first timer to rasam, I like to suggest you make do with instant rasam powder first and even if you have along the way obtained your Masters in Cooking, no harm done if you keep instant rasam powder close to your heart? Why? The uncomplicated cooking matter to a pot of rasam. Of course, I know many of you must treasure your mum's rasam recipe, go ahead and please be faithful now and forever to your mum by making her version to rasam. Otherwise, Nava K is here to help you out. Instant Rasam. Like I have already told you, instant rasam powder and the rest of the ingredients listed below. Tadaa! Sour burst and tadbit of heat of rasam is ready.

Petai! I don't know about you, I so love stink beans and stink beans as far as I know, is like an acquired taste. You taste for the first time, you don't like it, but over time you may fall in love with it or you outrightly hate it. We Malaysians on the whole, or I shouldn't say all of us, maybe a good number, generally love petai. And petai, no doubt the smell can kill you once you piss after eating, in fact even for the next day too, yet, petai is one of the best nutritious beans. Basically, holding big bags of health benefits and petai, is really appreciated when cooked as a Malay dish, In fact, that's how it should be for a fact. This Sambal Bilis Petai? Handed down from my mum's Malay friends and then, of course, mum to me. Sambal Bilis Petai must be regarded as a semi-style cooking. Just a light cooking. Light frying of the pounded ingredients. Petai, bilis/anchovies, boiled eggs, chillies and shallots, and seasoned by lime juice and salt. A different kinda recipe, but trust me petai lovers, Sambal Bilis Petai is unregrettable forever. I bet you will yearn for more once you have pleasured in. Of course, alongside rice.
