DIY Petai Fried Rice

Reanaclaire cooks again! One vendor parked his car in my office compound and started to sell raw petai (stinky beans).... No, he is not any ordinary vendor, somebody from the office must have told him to come and sell his petai to us with super cheap price. Each of us got 8 strands of petai for only RM3! So cheap!

Being "auntie-ness" and not wanting to be left out for not buying, I ended up with 8 strands of petai too... then cracking my head what to do with them after that...

 I got eight strands of the above.....
and it took me more than half an hour to get them peeled and cleaned....

Upon reaching home, I quickly cook rice... 
Actually I steamed them.... took me half hour or so...
Fragrance restored in steaming....
Oh, I thought my stove has ran out of gas...
It took me some time to get the fire going..
2 eggs, lots of garlic and RM3 of petai.....
Add in some dried sambal prawns given by my colleague....
And within minutes, my dinner is ready!
My Petai Fried Rice....
Eating petai is for "washing" our kidneys...
But for the next few days, I have to wash my toilet!
hahahahaaa....

  2. The more you need to wash your toilet means the more effective your kidney is cleaned though, which is good news :D

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
