Cili Padi

Puas mencari sambal belacan masa nak beli lunch kat cafe tadi tapi tak disediakan. How can a cafe not providing any sambal belacan? I just cannot think of it because among the attraction of a kedai makan would be the sambal belacan and the ulam-ulaman.

Anyway, makan saja-lah apa yang ada although the thrill of it is not so..so... I am a cili padi a.k.a. cabai melaka a.k.a cili burung fan. A must have for a home made lunch or dinner. Kalau tak ada rasa macam tak lengkap.

I used to plant the cili padi/cili burung while staying in Bangi. It was so voluptiuos and I really enjoyed picking it up until I got pregnant for my sixth child. Lansung tak hingin dan nak tengok pun the cili padi. Penangan pregnant masa tu.

I would love to try masak pekasam lemak Cili Padi (Perlis Style) that I copy and paste from Major Ismail website. Teringat lunch di Pokok Sawa/Ciku Di Mata Ayer, Perlis. It was an enjoyable moment having lunch with friends and a most memorable moment dating with husband during the lunch time.

Mr Mahmud
Thanks for visiting my blog. Belum pernah cuba juga resepi ni. Masak lemak selalu buat tapi belum pernah try dgn ikan pekasam. But, I think the only place I eat this food is in Perlis. Tempat lain belum pernah jumpa.
