Budu and Cincalok
Budu is a malay word to describe a fermented seafood such as fish and anchovies and very popular in Kelantan. Budu or Budo(Thailand) is very salty. It is use in cooking to flavor the dish. I bought this budu from the asian store near my neighborhood. My plan is to use it in Nasi Kerabu (Rice with lots of fresh vegetables).
Another salty food from asia is Cincalok. Growing up, my mother used to cook cincalok with shallots. She pan fry the cincalok with little oil. Cincalok is made of tiny shrimp and has strong smell. I have never tasted or cook cincalok in chicken. But there seems to be a lot of recipes on the internet on that.
Stay tuned for my version on Nasi Kerabu. Share
