Afternoon Snack

lovely to be enjoyed on a rainy day.
Hot, hot pisang goreng (fried bananas) and fried keropok lekor (fish sausage?). I love dipping my pisang goreng in the keropok lekor chilli sauce. Sweet, sour and spicy. When I was small, I ate cekodok pisang (fried mash banana balls?) with tomato sauce. Well, I ate rice mixed with margarine and soy sauce too. Zaini told me, I eat weird. You think? ^^
and with that afternoon snack, a cup of "kaw" coffee. At home I only drink one particular brand of coffee and nothing else. It's Kopi Cap Kapal Api. Three big spoons of coffee and its heaven. Great for my bowel movement too! ^^

Now that I mention about afternoon snack, I still have some untouched "nian gao" waiting to be cooked/served. Hubby doesn't care much about them and it isn't fun eating them alone. :(

  1. Oh! I think I should try making fried mash banana balls. We do fry banana quite often even though I don't really eat them :)) I prefer banana in drinks and cookies.

    2. True. That's a nice combo. Even fries in bread make a delectable sandwich. Try it.

      But I do drink salt. I take ORS before my Sunday runs. Does that count as salty drinks? ;p

      and I don't take milk - gastric. xD

    1. I ate that when I was small onlylah. My grandad would give it to his grandchildren. It's rather nice. Have to eat with piping hot rice and it's a combo of "lemak" taste with the saltiness of soy sauce. I haven't had that in ages.

  10. Love Kopi-O but more sugar, please. Dislike pahit-pahit one..

    1. Was going to fry them with yam, but no fun to eat alone. And no fun to fry just a few pieces. xD

      Hope you are all better now? Take care!

  13. Rice, margarine and soy sauce? +_+

    I Googled "nian gao". Did you know I'd do that? ^^ That sounds nice. (Does it include dates?)

    I grin every time you write about pisang. I keep wanting to tell you that you can't spell. It should be piesang. That's how we spell it. :D

    1. Well, I eat weird. ;p

      I should totally pepper my future blog posts with nice sounding yet unfamiliar to foreigners words here, just to entice you to look them up. *evil laugh*

      The way I eat nian gao (it may be wrong...) is either steam it and cover it with shredded coconuts or fry it sandwiched between two pieces of yam (think of those fried "piesang" but with a mochi(?) in the middle. ;p

      How do you pronounce "piesang"? As in pie?

      Delete
    2. We pronounce i exactly as a Japanese person would pronounce it. So, unless I'm mistaken, it's the same sound as in your name?

      I think pisang and piesang sound the same in Malay and Afrikaans.

      Yam and coconut. Now you've made me miss Africa. Sigh.

      Delete
    3. Never mind. You are going back soon! I don't suppose you'll start missing Japan while you are back in SA?
