Breakfasting Indonesian Style
It seems that this type of date, which is fresh on the vine is so popular among these families. Every houses I went to, served this type of dates. It does look presentable and the taste is so fresh.
The food which was wrap with banana leaf is the pulut panggang also known as steamed sweet rice with shredded fish filling. Watch out calories and sugar...I can only taste one piece and pray that I will not die because of a heart attack.
The drink served were fresh watermelon and fresh cantaloupe. On the right side to my cupcakes are the banana fritters aka cekodok pisang and plain fritters also known as cekodok.
My own recipe is here. One thing I noticed, each family brought at least one dish to share. The host, Tik offered Mee Soto (Rice noodle beef soup). It was delicious and I could only taste a little bit of everything. They are blessed with so many good food.
my version of ondeh ondeh here.
We all were eating too much that we forgot it was time to do the Isyak prayer and the terawih. This is one thing good I see from breakfasting with Indonesian families. They all perform the prayer together. Of course I don't get it why Tik husband must say something about the Indonesian people burnt and stepped on the Malaysian flag during the 31st August.
There is one more table that I did not get the chance to take the picture of. There are fried rice, chicken curry, mee soto, gado gado, fried fish, shrimp sambal, fried spicy anchovies and peanuts, spaghetti, etc. God blessed them. Food is not a question although they all maintain at ideal weight. Sometimes I wonder where are all of those food goes?
Those petite ladies can eat.
Some food that were missing are apam balik and murtabak. I did not see them today. Luckily, I don't miss them because their apam balik unlike mine was having chocolate as the fillings.
Their murtabak, again unlike mine had just egg inside. There are no meat.
I was too eager to go home that I forgot to bring my tray back home. Luckily Tik's house is not far from my house. She lives only 5 minutes away. I will be able to go and get them back anytime.
My baju raya is ready. Stay tuned on my other blog for the picture.
