SUP TULANG & APAM PISANG KUKUS (DIANAA)
Just before I got up from my chair just now, I clicked into http://nahrafqifahs.fotopages.com/ ~ a newly registered fotopages because the photo of a couple caught my eyes. In there, there's only 2 photos of this old-timer couple. There and then, I had tears in my eyes because I remembered my parents! Not that I don't remember them everyday but this photo made me remember them more! How I miss them ever so much :cry: !
14.30 Malawi time = 20.30 Malaysia time...
Just had lunch. Today I cooked the simplest dish. Steakbone soup aka sup tulang in Malay. Very easy to cook and while it's boiling, I can sweep the whole house!
All you have to do is, wash the steak bones. Put into the pressure cooker with some water and spices wrapped in a muslin cloth. For me, I got this 'sup bunjut' from Malaysia. Sup bunjut is a readymade wrapped spices. Pound some shallots together with ginger and garlic. Heat the oil and fry the pounded ingredients till fragrant. Pour into the pressure cooker. Secure the lid and put on the stove. When the pressure cooker starts releasing the steam (plus the LOUD noise :oh_god: ), leave it like that for about 20 minutes or so. Then off the fire, let the steam out and open the lid. Add in potatoes and boil till potatoes are slightly soft. Add salt, tomatoes, sliced onion and green chillies. When serving, sprinkle some chopped spring onions and fried onions. Nice to eat either with bread or rice! What can be simpler and tastier than that!
When the soup is in the pressure cooker, I started on my new experiment. I tried making Apam Pisang Kukus (Steamed Banana Cake). I printed this recipe from Forum.Cari.Com.My. Reason why...because there are so many 'rotten' bananas at home. Actually it's not rotten but it's just my son's phrase of describing the black skinned banana. You know how bananas skin reacts to heat. Once, I had asked my driver to buy for us some banana and that time, it was summer over here and quite heaty. He came back with a slightly blackish looking banana and my son totally refused to eat them. He said he doesn't want to eat 'rotten' banana! That's how the word 'rotten' comes into the picture ;-) !
