As I still have nothing eventful to post, I thought I'd put up this picture of Pucuk Paku, for the benefit of Rasa Malaysia who says she doesn't know what it is. I had this for dinner last night. It was our 10th anniversary, and wife must have known that I like this vegetable, so we had it for dinner. 10th anniversaries are aluminium, apparently. 1st is paper, 25th is silver, 50th is gold, 75th is diamond....heh heh, such foresight, must be a man who allocated these elements to commemorate anniversaries. Afterall, what is the likelihood of reaching 75th anniversary!!!! I'd be 105 by then..... she probably couldnt tell the difference from a polar mint and a diamond by that time.
I digress. Pucuk paku. A lovely wild fern.
It can be cooked in myriad ways. This one is stir fried with some dried shrimp, and fresh red chillies. Sometimes it's used in kerabus, and sometimes masak lemak. You may thank me at your own leisure, Rasa Malaysia.
Further to the Nigella Lawson Egg Separating Method, I had to make a lemon meringue pie yesterday, (along with 4 choc truffle cakes, 1 tiramisu and 20 scones), so I had to utilise this sensual baking method again. Now, this pic is badly taken because I had to use the left hand to take the picture. I am sadly alone these days in the kitchen, everyone maintains a safe radius.
Dont try to read the palm. I donch believe one.
