Sambal Ketuk

Quickie Recipe
What's your favourite condiment to eat with rice, or even noodles? In Malaysia, the answer will undoubtedly be something along the lines of a sambal: sambal belachan, sambal kicap, sambal goreng. Budu and cincalok will make a cameo appearance here and there, but more often than not it is sambal that is a must have condiment when makan nasi.

Now let's add another sambal to this delicious repertoire with this Sambal Ketuk. It is probably one of the simplest sambals but boy does it pack a wallop of flavour and spice.


Green, mean and very tasty

Take about a handful of ikan bilis and wash them. Fry the ikan bilis until golden brown and crispy and chuck them into a mortar (lesung). Next, roughly cut about 15 - 20 cili padi and fry that for 5 minutes in the same oil you used for the ikan bilis. Drain off the excess oil and put the chillies together in the mortar. Now pound the ikan bilis and chillies to a rough powder. Season with salt and sugar to taste.

Mix this into your rice, congee and noodles, or however way you see fit. It'll probably taste great however way you use it. Except dessert. Maybe.  Continue reading »

Top 5 @ PaRam Kota Damansara, Section 7, 2014

Quickie Review
About a week or so of Ramadhan has passed and we've been checking out PaRams (Pasar Ramadhans) in and around KL. This year we're trying to check out the less well known ones (you know, in comparison to the big ones like Bangsar or Shah Alam).

Our colleague, Meen, pointed us out to Section 7 of Kota Damansara. A little PaRam has been there for awhile, right behind a Shell station. So we checked it out and here is our Top 5!


Street Burrito Malaysia



This fledgling stall is testing out their burritos at the PaRam in hopes of setting up a shop (in TTDI they said). Their burrito features tasty, savoury and perfectly cooked rice inside a warm and soft tortilla. The chicken is griddled and remained juicy even when bought earlier. A touch of (very) tangy salsa rounds it off.


'World Cup' Chicken Wings



Riding on the World Cup 2014 wave is this cheeky BBQ chicken stall. Their items are named after football stars like Neymar, Ronaldo and Messi. Yeah we know. But the smoke coming out of the stall touches their chicken wings, drumsticks and even gizzards and 'tongkeng' (Bishops Nose.. or chicken butts!) and gives everything this smokey-sweet and…  Continue reading »

Jam Filled Crêpes

by Honey Ahmad, on Mon, July 07, 2014
Dessert

Crêpes are thin pancakes made from a liquid batter. They are very versatile because you can fill them with anything you like and have them as a starter or as a light meal. Of course, we like them sweet. This one is filled with strawberry jam and drizzled with syrup, an excellent dessert to have after dinner.

Friedchillies’ Favourites: Pineapple Soda

by Adly, on Wed, July 02, 2014 - 2:33:37 PM, 0 comment
Quickie Recipe
Friedchillies' Favourites talks about the great food and drinks that our team loves. These are food and drinks that we grew up having, so they hold a special place in our hearts... and stomachs!

This is my favourite drink come Ramadhan. It is very refreshing and just the thing to quench your thirst after a days' fasting. My mom used to make it for iftar.



It couldn't get any simpler, too. Just put some ice in a glass and pour in about 1/4 can of pineapple juice. Top up with ice cream soda and garnish with a slice of pineapple. If you want, you can even puree some canned or fresh pineapples as a base. Best!
