When life gives you plenty of kangkung….
You called your husband up and told him that tonite’s dinner will be nasi goreng with oven-baked wings and kangkung goreng belacan.
And you could basically hear him drool over the phone because that’s one of his favourite foods, hikhikhik…
(Eh kejap, apa aje food yang bukan one of his favourites ye? muahahahaha…. ).
So, I pun made nasi goreng cina (using that big chili hijau in the paste), oven baked wings (which I marinated in honey, dark soy sauce, kecap manis, garlic, sweet chilli sauce and sesame oil) and…..
Kangkung goreng belacan. I added 2 biji chili api into the paste you, hehehe. I cuma blend 1/2 bawang besar, 3 cloves garlic, a bit of halia, 2 tablespoons cili boh and cili api together.
Then goreng the paste and about 1cm belacan sampai semerbak baunya and jiran2 pun datang menjenguk (yo lah tu!). Pastu masukkan kangkung yang dah di basuh and goreng lagi sampai kangkung layu. Add garam and gula to taste.
Pastu, silalah hidangkan cantik2 macam ni, hahahaha .
Sampai Miss 8 kecur air liur tengok we all makan and asked for some kangkung goreng belacan. We told her it’s a bit pedas because of the chilli api but she still wanted to try it.
The first time she ate it, she quickly teguk air.
But then I taught her to eat the kangkung 1 leaf at a time so tak lah pedas, hehehe….
Look Mum, no more water!
But then she said, “My lips are all so hot and red. Is that normal after eating chilli?”
Welcome to the chilli eating world my dear daughter, heeeeee……
