Moh makan!(part 7): Bandung mania

Mak! Kawan datang. Makan!i had some friends over on saturday for some lunch. made mee bandung. i've done it a few times before, courtesy of this book i got when i went back to kl a year back. it's a great book which has almost all the usual kind of food that you get in a restoran or gerai. after making it a couple of times, i find mee bandung pretty easy to make. it's basically a bastardisation of prawn mee, as you make it out of beef stock as well. with eggs to boot. also, one of the reasons i chose to cook this was the fact our local meat supplier had halal beef, which is not a common occurrence in this part of town. and they sell their king prawns relatively cheap too.

Cara membuatnya, puan-puan.


made the kuah on friday night. that means it'll be more kow on saturday, with all the beef juices seeping into its surrounding milieu that is a combo of blended tomatoes, chillis, udang kering, bawang besar and garlic. *leleh* used baby spinach instead of sawi (can't stand the damn thing). garnish the mee with some bawang goreng, chopped spring onions and red chilli. squeeze a little lime and we were all good to go. and in the spirit of it, we had sirap bandung to quench our parched throats.

Mau?


i told you friday's entry below was a preamble.
