Since I am not going to do much cooking this week due to travelling and tight deadline in the office, so mights well I share the recipe with all of you now before I totally forget about it.
Hot & Peppery Soup or we used to call it ' Lat Thong' is one of the popular dish from my hometown Kajang. There are quite a no. of restaurants selling this dish in Kajang and I have not come across any in KL or PJ. Perhaps there is 1 in Seri Kembangan. So Klang is popular with 'Bak Kut Teh' but Kajang is popular with 'Lat Thong'.
Cook this last 2 weeks and lately it has been raining in the evening and ' Lat Thong' will be the soup to enjoy during this rainy days because of its hot and peppery taste. Brought my 'Ci mui' to eat one day and you know what they tell me. Taste very similar to our 'Pig Stomach Soup' and they enjoy it so much.
This is the best shot I ever had. Both give me a big smile especially Ee-Thern the cool small boy. Le-Ann is enjoying the 'Char Siew Pau' I make last Saturday. Look at her give me a thumbs up for the pau and some more can criss cross her leg to take picture. Off course the little 'DiDi' follow exactly what his 'Cheh Cheh' do lor.
Look this small girl 'Hiao Char Boh' really 'Ai Sui' keep playing with the nail colour and now starting to imitate me to put on make-up every morning before I go to work. Guess what? She already makes my lipsticks about 3 of it broke into 2 . Can't imagine if she grown up one day... what will she be ? Worry, worry, worry to have a daughter nowadays.
Since I am in bad mood for these few days, my bad habit came back again ----> impulse buying and buy, buy, buy for no reason. Afternoon snake out and look for VV in IKEA since IKEA is having sales. Reach home regretted why I buy those thing for what!
Bought 3 pots of green plants. The itchy hand, see green plants must buy since I love it so much. OK, get it without guilty. Then bought 2 sets of glasses and Dearie Suki saw it and said my cupboard is already full with all the ceramic wares, dinner sets, glasses, bowls. Where to keep all these? He knows I am still in bad mood and he didn't nag me a single word and I don't think so he dare to. Then a set of 3's round container at only RM3.90. Cheap can buy. The big glass jar like the ' kiam leng ang' I like the most. Planning to learn making Chinese Rice Wine from my 6th Kor, so must get one. Last piece is a metal rack for the kitchen and I think I might use that to display my McCormick Herbs and Spices in the kitchen. So total damage came to RM92.60 plus 2 Vanilla Ice-Cream and 1 Curry Puff with VV for tea time.
Started searching through the storeroom and found 2 small parcels from Japan and only I rememebered I purchased on-line, a Bento sets and some accessories from Abigail last 2 weeks. Thanks Abigail for the speed delivery and I received it within a week after purchased.
The 2 monsters at home got excited and help me to opened up the parcels. Wow... I just love all these cute stuffs and going to collect it if I come across any in Isetan or Jusco. What izzit inside the box?
A set of 2 tier cute Bento container + a bag + a pair of chopsticks + 3 minis cute soya sauce container and the other one have the egg moulds where I have been looking for quite some time. But she gave me the STAR and LOVE shape and I still prefer the CAR and FISH shape. Nvm, will search through E-Bay when I am free. Total damage again is USD 58.00 and if Dearie Suki know about this he is going to KILL me.
Anyway already purchased and can't do anything about it. I can't wait to make cute Bento for my kids when I am free on Saturday.
To prepare the stocks, what you need to do is to sautee some chopped onion till soft then add in some chilli paste. If you prefer it to be more spicy then add more chilli paste. Then throw in the prawn shells and fried till the shells turn orange colour. Pour in water and let it simmer for about 1 hour. Season with 1 chicken cube and salt to taste. Oops... remember to add some rock sugar into the soup.
Blanched some meehoon and to go along with it I have prepared some sliced fish cakes, hard boiled eggs, steamed prawns, fried shallots and also some kangkung. Dearie Suki was complaining where is the sambal. Aiyah... forgot la. Anyway the soup is spicy enough and you don't need sambal.Here my Prawn Mee. Both me and Dearie Suki had this for supper at about 2 am yesterday cos stomach making noise after XXX.
Dearie Suki went out for an appointment again in Sunway this afternoon to meet up a customer and he came back with a plactic bag full with fried Popiah and Prawn Fritters and I guess it must be the one from Salak South. BINGO! Iam right.
Look not too bad ya, my Char Siew Pau. The skin is so soft and it is so nice when you eat it right out from the steamer. Le-Ann eaten 2, Ee-Thern 1, Dearie Suki 2 and me 2. Given to my neighbour May 4, and now left 7. Going to bring back to Ah Mah's house tomorrow and show off my pau to Mom and Sis.
Anyway, it is not cheap though. One for RM13 and it is not that big but it is real fresh. Look at the fish eyeballs. It pop out and white in colour after steaming and that means the fish is very,very fresh. I steamed it with Kikkoman Sushi Sashimi sauce and added 1 tsp of fried shallots and oil.
Le-Ann and Ee-Thern both loves fish very much and I got no doubt about it that they could finish one big bowl of rice with fish sauce and the fish meat. Funny thing is that little Ee-Thern will come and tell me---> Mama, good !
Kepoh Le-Ann this morning, washing her little brother bicycle. You know what she told me?--> " Mommy, wash Didi bicycle ah? Dirty la! " Look at this clever girl, give me excuses to help Ee-Thern to wash his bicycle cos she herself want to play with water.
Here you go these are what I cooked for him this week. Yippe ! Its Saturday again and looking forward to have a day off in the kitchen.
Me and Dearie Suki favourite kembung fish. We love to deep fried it and eat it with hot and spicy sambal. Dearie Suki always hoping I can cook Sambal Petai whenever I fried the kembung fish.
Picked some fresh mint which I plant in my garden. Gave some to my neighbour May and she told me to cook it with eggs soup. I tried but don't really like it. You know how it taste like? Its like drinking a Colgate Soup. Yuck! not going to cook this again.
Sorry too lazy to blog the recipe. Click here if you want to try it out.
This sweet potato leaves or in Cantonese we called it ' Farn Sue Yip'. Another green vegetables I plant in my garden. Mom always encourage us to plant vegetables in our house garden. So here it is Mom my 'Farn Sue Yip'. Save $$$ buying from the market.
I am not good in naming fish. Bought this fish from the night market near my office on Tuesday. Sorry I don't know what is the name of this fish. If I am not mistaken it is 'Sek Pan Fish'. Anyone have any idea what it called in English? Anyway, steamed the fish with taucho sauce and the fish meat is so sweet and fresh. Dearie Suki love it so much and he told me that he can finish a whole plate of rice with just the taucho sauce itself.
