Malaysia Mutton Curry

This Mutton curry is normally prepared during festive seasons and we will also make ROTI JALA (lacey crepe)to go with it.

We planned to go for a 2 nights outing this long weekend, the lodge that we have booked is pretty far from town. So we decided to bring some foods for lunch and dinner. This mutton curry is what I prepared to go with ghee rice.

I can't wait for our vacation to happen!

Sambal Telur (Egg Sambal)

Egg is well loved in my house and this simple yet super delicious Egg sambal is a very versatile dish, it goes well with fried noodle/rice noodle, fried rice as side dish, it even taste awesome with just plain rice!

I made this today to go with my long bean rice. So long bean rice with Egg sambal, dinner is served!

Pisang Goreng (Banana Fritter)

Fried banana is a very common snacks back home, a sweet childhood memory of mine. I would asked some money from grandpa during those hot afternoon and ran to the small Malay stall that sells fried banana and Cendul.

I would buy a packet of cold cendul and some fried bananas, walking home slowly and enjoy the hearty snack.

Goldfish Breaded Fish Fingers

I have tried to avoid giving shop bought snacks to A with some exception like goldfish crackers, it is not that these crackers are any better than other stuff kids normally have.  

The only reason he gets this "treats" once in a while is because no matter how we try, he is going to eat some junk foods anyway. So savory ones is better than the sugar filled stuff. Besides, he starts liking goldfish as he gets it in the daycare for snack.

I saw this ingenious idea of making goldfish breaded chicken sometimes ago while searching for ideas to make A's food.  I have been wanting to introduce fish to his diet for sometimes. He definitely doesn't fancy salmon and have no interest in any type of steamed fish. 

So I came up with this idea to make goldfish breaded fish fingers, with the hope that his liking for goldfish will lure him into eating some fish. He did liked it and had 4 sticks at dinner!

Vegetarian Sambal Tofu (Bean Curd)

This Sambal Tofu is a good example of "Trully Malaysia" food, tofu as Chinese traditional food, and sambal the Malay, and guess what? It is often served by the Indian! Simply love the combination.

Simple Thai Vegetable Salad

This is one of the best salad to have in this pipping hot summer. Its sweet and sour taste makes it interesting, just make sure you chilled the vegetables for a while in the fridge before mixing.

This is all I needed for my lunch.

Stir-fried potato, eggplant and green pepper/Di San Xian(地三鲜)

This is a very traditional North Eastern Dish from China that I learnt from a friend. I made it for my family when I visited Malaysia the last time, to my surprise, everyone loved it! Including my brother who had never fancy vegetarian dishes!

I promise mum that I will write a recipe on this dish as soon as I reach home, and here it is!

Toddler Food -- Meatballs in Tomato Sauce

A started a new daycare last week, he protest every morning and got really worked up with the fact that he has to go to daycare everyday, this changes of his routine literally turn his life and mine upside down. He didn't sleep well, wakes up multiple times at night and nurses more than ever. 

But there aren't all that bad, his appetite increases after daycare and he eats more real foods now comparing pre-daycare time. And I have more time preparing his dinner before picking him up everyday!

He loves this meatballs so much that I was surprised, I initially made only 5 meatballs for him and thought to myself that if he could finished them all, that would be great. But then I can't be more wrong! He asked for more twice and ended up eating 11 pieces of meatballs with all the peas, carrot (I cut into star shapes which he really appreciate!) and vegetable. He had only a spoon of the rice but I was already out of the world.
