Menu for breaking fast one day last week....

Been wanting to make Goreng Cencaru Sumbat since beginning of the fasting month but just did see the right size of the cencaru, either its too small of too big. Until one day last week, i found the cencaru size that i like he he...so happy i got a ringgit worth of shredded coconut, a bit of chili api, a few red onions, tumeric, tumeric leaves and of course salt to taste. After filling in the mixture of pounded coconut and the rest, deep fried the fishes( i bought 2) and i felt like a small kid eagerly waited the time to break fast.....


This is Chef Wan's version of daging dendeng quite similar to my blogger friend, ms hart's Ayam Bali recipe.
Dessert was Banana Choc Chips Muffins, courtesy of Chef Wan's too!

Hello Zaitgha, alamak oi! Dapat wangi ikan goreng tu sampai sini, ha ha.
I hope you cooked enough rice? Tiga pingan should be just nice, arhaaa ha ha.
I have not eaten this fish suda lupa bila pun.
Ohhh, you call it 'ikan cincaru goreng sumbat'?

I can just eat this fish, add sambal belachan.....ooops! You ada buat sambal belachan? Ha ha.
By the way Zaitgha, I remember some Malay friends who made this ikan goreng sumbat, had the chillie sambal and I think blimbing too, and limau perut.
I guess each have their own recipie, huh?

Zaitgha, you are one heck of a gourmet cook! I love this ikan goreng, between choice of dinner with Sophia Loren or your house makan ikan ni....your house! Ha ha. Siap empat pingan, ha ha.

Okay, bila ada dinner invitation, tidak boleh datang tangan kosong....so here are 2 cake recipies for you.
