1 Syawal

What's cooking you ask? :)

Last Saturday I spent the day cleaning, groceries and cooking... yes!! cooking!!
It is always not easy to start myself to cook. But when you got the pan heated up..I'm on for it baby!!

This time there's something new. Spring is long gone, but spring rolls are here :)
To tell you the truth, it has been a long time since I make spring rolls. In fact, I can't remember making them in my own kitchen. It would probably with my mom ages ago.
Anyway, after much googling, finally I got some idea as to what would be the filling for the rolls.

I chose mix of beansprouts, carrots and clear noodles.. that's it!

As for the pastry, you can get a normal spring rolls pastry in any asian stores.

Time to roll up those pastries

Deep fried the rolls.. and there you go.. served with any kind of sauce.

Easy, yummy, filling and fun! You can never fail with these spring rolls

On another note:
I cooked something else, at the same time for the Eid.
It's not so elaborate like last year's

For this year, it's ketupat (packed cube rice), beef rendang and peanut sauce (clockwise)

Bubur Kacang Hijau (Mungo Bean Porridge)

Time for a Malaysian treat!

My sister recently made this porridge and I had the urge to eat it too.
Bubur Kacang Hijau is one of oh-so-many Malaysian comfort foods. Bubur means Porridge, Kacang Hijau means Green beans.

This porridge can be served hot, cold or you can even freeze it to make a nice ice cream. This version is the simplest one. You can add other things into it such as sago pearl, durian or jackfruit.

It is very easy to make, and this took me about 1 hour max.
So here is the recipe:

Bubur Kacang Hijau

250g Mungo Green beans
3/4 can of coconut milk
palm sugar
water for boiling the beans
pinch of salt

Boil green beans in water. Put a lot of water because the water ran out fast.
Make sure that green beans are thoroughly cooked. It is OK if you overcooked them slightly. To know this, the bean's skin starts to parted from the bean itself.

Add in palm sugar, coconut milk and sugar and pinch of salt.
Add all these bit by bit and depending on your preferences.
For example, add coconut milk until you get the right amount of "sauce". It should not be too soupy, nor too "dry"
Add sugar a bit then taste it. Depending how sweet you want it to be.

Here is my version, served hot. Yum!!!
