Muhibbah Malaysian Monday Round-Up #9

Monday, April 4, 2011

Hello everyone, and welcome back to another installment of Muhibbah Malaysian Monday. Quite hard to believe that we’re onto round-up number 9 already! Thank you to all of you who have joined us along the way. I still find it very exciting every time an entry pops up in my inbox, then when I follow the link to read the post, I end up feeling very fortunate and awed that such talented bloggers choose to join us time and time again.

Let’s explore the talent pool shall we?

First up, Lena who blogs at Frozen wings dishes up some home-made lemon chicken. Tangy and delicious.

She also made a dish of hot and sour trotters. Yes, those are feet! Porcine feet.

Next we have a new member, Janine who blogs at Not the Kitchen Sink. Welcome aboard Janine! She joins us with two entries. The first is Apam Balik, a favourite afternoon tea snack.

Then, when hunger pangs strike, try some speedy Muah Chee, another moreish snack.

Loyal Malaysian Monday-er Cheah from No Frills Recipes made a different type of snack called tau sar paeng which translates to Red Bean Biscuits. Golden and flaky pastry, need I say more?

Another regular, Sherie  (apologies for getting the name wrong at first!) from mameeemoomoo gave us three dishes. This one is called Mei Cai Kou Rou 梅菜扣肉 (Steamed Pork Belly with Mustard Greens) and it sounds delicious.

She also made that all time favourite: Nasi Lemak with Sambal Cili. Look at that mouthwatering pic!

If that’s not enough, here’s another mouth-watering pic of : Ipoh Hor Fun. When I received this link, I was so inspired I actually made it for dinner that night. Yum!

Another regular, Kristy from Kristy Gourmet, also contribute three dishes.

First, a snack of sesame glutinous rice balls. I love this snack and this one looks incredibly tempting.

 Next a dish that would have smelt heavenly when it was being cooked.
Kam heong black pepper chicken.

If you’ve ever been to yum cha (or dim sum), you’ll be familiar with this next dish called Loh Mai Gai. Kristy made a chicken version, and it looks perfect. I’d like some for breakfast :)

Put your hands together to welcome another new member. Veronica blogs at Quay Po Cooks, and she jumped on board with three sensational offerings.

There’s five-spiced pork rolls (lobak). How I miss this dish, and thanks to Veronica, I can now try it at home, yay!

Another dish I have to try at home is her Otak-otak. Funnily enough this dish translates as “brains-brains” not sure why, because it looks nothing like them! It tastes sensational though, and it’s a no-brainer (pun intended) to understand why it’s a popular snack.

Next up, she made Chwee kueh, a dish I am unfamiliar with. But it sounds very intriguing and one I want to try as soon as I can find a suitable mould. There's also a little information about one of her favourite childhood games.

Next up, we have another newcomer from I Live to Eat and Eat to Live. Come on down, Dave! He introduces us to a cookbook, and then makes Rendang Pahang (a beef rendang). Tummy growling yet?

Charmaine who blogs at From Our Kitchen joins us again with a very familiar dish: KL Hokkien Mee. A fast and tasty dinner winner.

And of course, Muhibbah Malaysian Monday would never have eventuated without the encouragement from Suresh of 3 Hungry Tummies! Thanks Suresh.

He made three wonderful dishes again.

There was a dry tossed egg noodles with red cooked pork dish that looked very rich and satisfying.

Then there were prawns. I love prawns. Especially hot and sour prawns.

And hands up if you like fried chicken. Have you tried Tamarind fried chicken? I haven’t either but they sure sound amazing.

Suresh will also be hosting the Muhibbah Malaysian Monday round-up #10. Please send your entries to sureshchong(at)yahoo[dot]com.

Have a good week!
