Malaysian Kampung Fried Rice Recipe (C's Updated Version)

Wednesday, September 03, 2014 | Labels: , | No Comment »

Kampung fried rice where kampung literally refers to village/ countryside is a favourite dish of mine and many Malaysians.  Ingredients are incredibly simple and usually economical hence its' namesake - no luxurious ingredients involved at all!  The most integral part of this dish I think (apart from day-old rice) is the spice paste.  Now, as many of you might know, I love making my spice pastes the traditional mortar and pestle way as much as I can.  It really makes a difference! The spice paste for this dish is just fresh bird's eye chili peppers, anchovies, shrimp paste (belacan), shallots and garlic.  Once you have the spice paste, the other parts are easy peasy.

If you like, you can add some small shrimp or deep-fry the anchovies separately as crunchy toppings.  However, there should be some anchovies in your spice paste as well.  The flavours will be brought out much more once pounded together.  The rice turns out brownish due to the belacan used in the spice paste.

Beef Stew Recipe

Sunday, August 24, 2014 | No Comment »

There's nothing more heartwarming than a bowl of hot beef stew on a rainy Sunday afternoon.  This was actually requested so as I have never made beef stew so I thought why not.  This is a modified recipe of Jamie Oliver's but I did not use the oven or even a Dutch oven.  I merely cooked it over the stove but the flavours were still deep and delicious.  I used steak for stewing and plenty of vegetables.  The recipe calls for artichokes and squash but as they are hard to find here, I skipped them.

This is great served with crusty bread or even rice.

Thai Style Green Salad Recipe

Well, strictly speaking this is not really a recipe.  I have been loving salads more and more lately due to influence from someone :P.  It is refreshing I have to admit and definitely easy to put together! For today, I merely used Yuen Chun's Thai sauce mixed with some lemon juice as the dressing.  Appetising, tangy and easy!
