One Of Her Fav Dish

Today marks the first anniversary of my grandma's passing. Let me tell you what Ah Poh likes to cook for us.

kacangpanjang

Mum cooked this last 2 weekends ago. She said no matter how she cook it, it will never taste like how Ah Poh used to make it. I guess we all miss her so much.

I don't know what it's called. But it's Kacang Panjang (long beans) + Daun Kacang Panjang (long beans leaves) + Belacan + coconut milk serve in this old fashion bowl (making it looked more authentic, ahaks!) Mom says that its very hard to find the Kacang Panjang leaves in the market. This daun+kacang panjang was home grown. No, the coconut is not home grown but bought fresh from the market. :) ah.....feel the love

If you have some daun kacang panjang and wants to try this recipe, don't worry. I have asked my mum for the recipe la. But no measurement k? Cos my style and my mum's style is nearly the same -AGAK AGAK style.

Preparations:
  • The leaves, you need to tear it small small and you need to squash the daun like you're washing your clothes.(NO JOKE) Why? Cos my mum says that if you don't do that, the daun will have one kinda smell and when you cook it, it won't be soft. Listen to old people k?
  • The kacang panjang, no need to squash, just pluck it all same length so that all will be cooked at the same time.
How to cook:
  • Then cook your garlic, small onions, belacans and dried shrimps (the more the better!!)
  • Add coconut milk + Kacang Panjang.
  • Daun go in last.

Last Step,


EAT!

We really enjoy this dish and hope that you guys will like Ah Poh's recipe too. :)
