Happy Monday everyone,
I do apologise for the lateness in getting this round-up together, I won’t bore you with details but it’s been pretty busy round here lately.
Luckily, all of you have been cooking up a storm and sending in your delicious entries. Here they are in no particular order.
Sudha from Malaysian Delicacies, prepared Kerutup Kambing, a dish famous in the eastern states of Kelantan and Terengganu, It is a dish usually served with Nasi Minyak (a type of rice dish). Sounds absolutely tempting.
Diana from Kebun Malay Kadazan Girl used some produce from her garden to produce a dish known as Berlada, which means spiced. She tells us that this type of dish is popular in the state of Negeri Smebilan.
Gertrude from My Kitchen Snippets still managed three entries even though she’s been busy with so many other things. (Thank you Gert!)
There’s Kam Heong chicken. She explained that the words “kam heong” means “golden fragrant”, a very apt description, don’t you think?
Gertrude also made a sweet dish called kuih talam
And what do you do with leftover egg yolks from a macaron project? Turn it into butter prawns of course!
Say hi to Vivian from Vivian Pang Kitchen who made us gula melaka steamed buns Oh my goodness, the mere words gula melaka (palm sugar) are enough to get my tastebuds going.
Want to fancy up your curry repertoire? Cheah from No Frills Recipe cooked some chicken curry with apple. She was inspired after overhearing a conversation at the store :)
She also made a simple braised pork belly dish that looks very flavourful.
Shannon from Just as Delish joins the Malaysian Monday gang. Say a big hello to her! Shannon was looking for wheat free recipes and made sweet potato onde-onde to satisfy her sugar cravings.
Kristy from My Little Space probably requires very little introduction. She is a well known food-blogger who still takes the time to contribute to our monthly round-ups.
Here are her dishes:
A steamed, savoury taro cake which sounds very interesting with the addition of black eyed peas.
Another interesting contribution is this purple muah chee. Want to know why it’s purple? You’ll have to read the post :)
She also made a steamed savoury egg dish that I'm sure was a firm childhood favourite for many people.
And take a look at these anchovy fritters! Any wonder that they were polished off in seconds?
And of course, there would not be any Muhibbah Malaysian Monday round-up without my friend Suresh from 3 Hungry Tummies who helped start it all off. He made three delicious dishes:
Sambal Ikan bilis - a spicy accompaniment to Nasi Lemak.
Chicken cooked with torch ginger, a dish that must surely have smelt divine.
And Char Kway Teow / Fried Kway Teow with seafood, how luxurious!
Suresh is also hosting the next round-up so please send all December entries to sureshchong(at)yahoo(dot)com.
Thanks so much for your patience and have a great start to the week!
