Second Day Of Puasa

Don't worry, I'm not going to do a daily "puasa" post. ^^
We went to Pasar Ramadhan yesterday to look for buka puasa dishes. For today's buka puasa, it's home-cooked meal, very simple home cooked meal.

Grilled pari (skate) with budu (with lots of shallots, lime juice & cili padi) and blanched lady's fingers. Very very simple but very very good. 

What's more fun was that everyone chipped in at the kitchen. Mommy prepared the fish & budu mix, Daddy looked after the grilling and Raimie put the lady's finger in the boiling water and set the table too.

What should I cook next week, I wonder?

    3. Sahur = pre-dawn meal
      Iftar = buka puasa. ;p

      Petai today? Cannot lah! Tomorrow gotta go to work. Don't want to stink up the office toilet! Bwahaha!!!

      The boys love this simple dish. We don't usually eat a lot of "lauk-pauk" in one sitting anyway. ;p

    13. This reminds me about all the fishes I caught when I went weekly fishing when young. I never dared to eat them cos geli la.

      Delete
    14. TM,
      Why you geli?
      I remember last time, my mom absolutely forbid me to bring back ikan keli if I caught any.
      But nowadays, I like to eat that bottom-feeder. My mom really geli that fish!

    1. Nando's is here Ru!

      LO at the ad. Poor guy waiting for the sun to go down. ;p

      Used to be quite good, but as always with Malaysian ventures, they want to earn $$$ more and portion became smaller and smaller. hu~

      Delete
    2. You've got Nando's?! 0_0

      Small portions? Boo! The Sow Effrican portions are BIG!

      Delete
    3. Welcome to Malaysia. When it first opened way back when... 1999 0r 2000, the portion was pretty decent.

      I guess chicken cost too much for them. kakaka

      But the plates are big. ;p

  12. Homecooked food beats outside food anytime and esp when everyone chips in to prepare.
