Laksa Lemak

Another thing you can do whenever you're hungry and have absolutely no idea on what to cook is to browse through the infinite numbers of great recipes you can find in the fotopages.

Ever since I tasted Puan Husniah Ayatillah's Laksam, life has never been the same. I cannot describe the joy when I found this recipe on Mamasya's site. As usual, my version would be the cheat and lazy version of the original. If you want the real McCoy, please check-out Mamasya's.

Laksa Lemak

400g canned tuna in water
4 shallots
black peppercorn, crushed
a bunch of daun kesom -- mine's frozen solid in the freezer
200ml coconut cream
asam keping, salt and sugar

Blend shallots and black peppercorn.
In a pot, boil tuna along with the blended ingredients.
Add in asam keping and daun kesom.
Finally, add in coconut cream, salt and sugar to taste. Leave it to simmer for about 10 minutes.
Serve it with rice noodle, sambal belacan and in my case, cucumber...pathetic!!


Note to Mr Dudwey....

An absent-minded husband thought he had conquered his problem of trying to remember his wife's birthday and their anniversary. He opened an account with a florist, provided that florist with the dates and instructions to send flowers to his wife on these dates along with an appropriate note signed,
"Your loving husband."

His wife was thrilled by this new display of attention and all went well until one day, some bouquets later, when he came home, kissed his wife and said off-handedly, "Nice flowers, honey. Where'd you get them?"
