First, a huge thank you to all our very supportive contributors who churn out tasty dish after tasty dish to feed our blog-event. Suresh and I are very grateful.
And without further ado, let’s meet the peeps who help keep Muhibbah Malaysian Monday ticking:
Say hello to our newest contributor Lisa, who blogs at From My Lemony Kitchen. She serves up a dish of divine looking Radish Cakes. I know it’s a tasty dish because Lisa’s daughter left a comment on this post requesting more :).
Next we have Lena from Frozen Wings who made a salted fish curry. Salted fish can be a bit confronting on the nose, but once it’s cooked, the flavour will bowl you over.
For something on the sweet side, visit Sherie at Mameemoomoo for pretty little Kuih Kosui Pandan. These must have smelt super fragrant.
Here's another pandan flavoured cake submitted by Zurin from Cherry on a Cake. She explains how this Kuih Bakar Pandan (Baked Pandan Cake) used to be made in bygone days. No ovens then, just firewood.
Zurin also submitted some Cucur Badak(translated as Hippo Bites). She is obviously in love with this snack, and know what? So am I :)
If you’re feeling a little cold, how about a warm bowl of Chicken Rice Congee, contributed by Charmaine who blogs at From My Kitchen. This soupy rice porridge has many names, chok and bubur to name a few, and it is real comfort food for many Malaysians. Actually, I’m sure many cultures across S.E. Asia will have a version of this dish.
Next, please visit Veronica from Quay Po cooks, and feast your eyes on a plate of stewed chicken feet. Wait! Come back! Chicken feet may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but these are so beautifully photographed, at least sneak a peek, and you might be tempted to try them :).
Tau Foo “Kang” (smooth thick tofu soup). The translation explains it all, it’s soup, it contains tofu and it looks delish!
Veronica also cooked some Bak Kut The (Pork bone tea soup), a breakfast or supper staple.
(editor’s note: This dish is so popular that there are now halal versions available using chicken instead of pork).
Say hello to very prolific contributor Kristy who sent FIVE wonderful dishes for our event! I’m sure many of you have been to her blog, My Little Space. Perhaps you’ve already seen these hunger-pang inducing deep fried curry puffs? These are a little bit different to the usual curry puffs, they contain taro and different seasonings instead of the usual potato and curry.
If you fancy a sweet puff instead, she also contributed some tasty Kaya Puffs. They look perfect, don’t they?
She also made egg tofu from scratch, then deep-fried it. Oh yum!
But wait, there’s more. Kristy also served up this mouth watering Roasted Curry Chicken. Why not add some spice to your next roast dinner?
If you want to ratchet up the heat factor even more, why not try her Nyonya sambal chicken. Hot stuff :)
Another very prolific contributor joins us again. Please say hi to Cheah, from No Frills Recipes. There’s something for everyone. First try the vegetarian braised gluten puffs.
Or if you eat meat, there’s Herbal tea chicken or braised chicken with foo yue. Two dishes chook-full of goodness ;).
Herbal tea chicken
Then there’s Chinese style roast pork. If you’ve been to a chicken rice stall, you may be familiar with these stripey cuts of meat, crunchy, salty and creamy all at once.
And that’s not all! She also made Loh Mai Fan(steamed savoury glutinous rice. This is similar to another dish called Loh Mai Kai which is served at dim sum / yum cha. Hmmm, I think I know what I’ll be having for dinner tomorrow.
Gertrude, another staunch supporter of MMM, joins us again from her blog My Kitchen Snippets. She made some pretty Shrimp and Chives (Ku Chai) pancakes. A simple but super delicious snack.
And if you like eggs, be sure to check out the Soy sauce eggs she made. Anther light dish, but heavy on the flavour.
Pick Shan, from Babe in the City, KL, shares an interesting dish. Have you heard of bitter gourd? Check out this stir-fried bitter gourd dish to find out how to prepare this vegetable.
She also cooked Braised Pork Belly with Mui Choy. Sounds luscious and rich doesn’t it?
Shuhan joins us again from Mummy I can cook. She made some lovely patterned Tea leaf eggs
There’s also a colourful, pickled vegetable dish known as Nyonya Achar.
For a heartier meal, try the Claypot Rice. As the name indicates, this dish is cooked in a claypot, a truly one-pot meal.
And of course, Muhibbah Monday would never have started without my friend Suresh who is known to most of you as 3 Hungry Tummies.
He made some dry chicken curry noodles to tempt our tastebuds.
For a different serve of carbs, he also offered up Nasi Minyak a rich rice dish studded with nuts and dried fruit.
Last but not least, here’s his goat curry. What a tasty finish.
Thank you again for sharing all your fantastic food with us. The next Muhibbah Malaysian Monday round-up will be hosted by Suresh, so please send all entries for the month of June to sureshchong(at)yahoo[dot]com.
Have a great week.
