Great rice with Mum's Love
Eight Below was a geat movie. I love it. Since saw the advertisement in Japan, I have been yearning for it. Finally.
Paul Walker is really sexy. Man~~~
Geee... yesterday was Ladies Day for movie. I watched 2 in a day. Only RM6 per ticket. (Ok, RM5 during Movies Day is even cheaper, but a bit too many people.) It is good to be a lady. ^_^
Yap, I am hunger for movie after 5 years in Japan. You see, for 1 movie in Japan, I can watch 10 in Kuching. Now you know why? :P
Ok, my main topic for today...
Do you still remember I talked about Pitcher Plant Rice in Serikin? I regretted didn't have the gut to buy one to try.
Mum knew that. With her love, she made something great.
A couple days ago, she gave me a good surprise.
While I was having my first trip to do a night dive, she went to buy...
...some empty pitcher plant cups from the Serikin market.
Also, while I was attending my HF's wedding, she went to Sunday market to get a few ketupat casings.
Oo lala~~~~ I was really excited when I saw these things in the kitchen all in sudden in one morning. I was going to have a home-made version of these 2 things!!!
When she was making it, I couldn't resist the temptating nice smell of garlic stir-fried rice grain, with mushroom and some pork as special ingredients.
After I was tortured by a long waiting 4 h...
Mum finally declared... "Ready to eat!!"
My mum's home-made black rice... inside pitcher plant and ketupat casing.
Heeee... they sure look much better compared to the one sold in market. :P
See the filling inside?
Man~~~ these things are really good to serve hot.
Mum used 2 different technique to cook them.
The pitcher plant rice was steamed, while the ketupat was boiled.
Spreading of heat in pitcher plant rice was not uniform. Mum couldn't seal the top with its cap, too small, so she couldn't boil the pitcher plant rice. Therefore, the rice tasted harder for the top layer.
Ketupat black rice was great!!! The rice so soft, smell good... Yes, boiling would be a good technique for the pitcher plant too.
Hehe... mum's first try was a success. Too bad she didn't make a lot this time. Mum promised to make again next time, in a bigger batch.
Muak!!! Thanks mum, you're the greatest.
I am gonna request more ingredients inside. Hmm... maybe it will be a great idea to make Ketupat Dumpling or Pitcher Plant Dumpling. :P
What do you think?
p/s: I have one dateline to rush, not in mood to reply emails yet. Yet, I am still waiting for my ex-Prof reply. Can't do anything at the moment. So, please wait for the reply next week. Sorry.
