just found this incomplete posting in the draft status. well, here i am, re-posting as it is, without any picture.
Nobody home, i felt alone. What to do? Cooking, cooking and cooking.
Here are menu from my cooking frustration:
Tom Yam Fried Rice
Kacang hijau dan merah
Tom Yam Fried Rice:
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- Onion (I don't use this, but it will certainly add taste)
- 3 Chilies.
- Vegetable (i used lettuce, just in time before it spoiled in the fridge)
- Tom Yam paste
- 2 tbsp of water
- Cooked Rice (leave the rice at room temperature, so it will not stick when you cook it)
Clean the squid, and make sure the bone underneath the skin is removed. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Chopped all the celery, garlic, onion, chilies and vegetable. Heat up the oil, and stir in garlic, onion and Tom Yam paste until fragrance. you may need to put in water to dilute the tom yam paste into a bit of watery state. Just a bit !!
Now, you can add the squid in, followed by celery. After everything cook, stir in the rice and mix well. You may want to do this in stages to evenly coated the rice. Last, add the lettuce and stir for a while. It is ready to eat :)
