Breaking Fast at Home


i am stuffed. i think we overdid it. aunt decided to make nasi ulam (herbed rice) for dinner tonight. and we decided to “tambah lauk” (add dishes) from the nearby SS18 Ramadhan Bazaar. being sunday, the bazaar was packed with people. we were a bit late for the weekend crowd and quite a few stalls had already sold out and packed up. so we didn’t really grab much, just some old favourites.


Paru2 Lembu & Nanas masak lemak, both my aunt’s choices. The lung slices were a bit dry, and tasteless. I am not a big fan of cooked pineapple so I only had a smidget of that.


And now, my choices, kerang (cockles) and daging masak hitam (beef dish). The cockles tasted slightly sweeter than I expected it to, but loved the liberal amount of limau purut (kaffir lime) leaves used. the beef’s gravy tasted just right, despite the dark looks. however the meat was really tough. pity about that.


both of us knew we just had to get some of this when we spotted it – cincalok and tempoyak (fermented durian) . drowning along with cut chillies, halved calamansi limes, the baby shrimps were salty and sour and so good with rice. loved the tempoyak too, thought aunt thought it was a little on the spicy side. but it was all good. even the pungent smell wasn’t a turn off. lol.

selamat berbuka puasa to you guys out there too 🙂
