I recalled sharing a recipe of the delicious and versatile sambal hijau, and made extras so I could store it for future use. And yesterday was the 'future' after keeping it in the fridge for 1 week. Let's get started with this 5-minute dish.
Sambal is chilly jam in Malay. It is a very common condiment in any Malay restaurant that serves rice. However, I am sharing a special sambal that was popularized by the Indonesians. Sambal hijau tumis is a special type of sambal that is not spicy and yet still super appetizing that matches perfectly with any rice meal. Let's call it the mild sambal that fits everyone's stomach.
Judging by the name of the dish, one probably can guess that this dish is slightly sweet. Which is not wrong, therefore, this very appetizing dish can be served with steamed rice or plain bun (mantao). I was inspired to cook my version of this dish after tasting it at a famous Hokkien restaurant. One word to describe, YUMS!
I had a very exhausting day yesterday and wished to prepare a quick hearty meal to soothe my hunger pang, fulfilling the recommendations by the food pyramid. Yes, you know what I mean. Am sharing this super simple soup today so you can have your dinner ready in a matter of minutes.
If you like white pomfret, am sure you would know there are two great ways to prepare it. Either steamed or in hot pot, although cooking in asam sauce would be a fantastic idea. Today, I am sharing a super simple way to prepare a white pomfret dish that will set you and your family on the dining table in no time.
On days you feel hungry but don't want to cook, this idea may seem to come handy. Today's idea goes well with steamed rice. It's called salted fish. It may not be the healthiest option, but we can forgive ourselves to indulge once in a while.
