Jejak Kasih...Taukua Rendang

Hahahaha..I've to start off with laughter cause I never knew I could be this crazy..well I am not that sane either (hehehe) but to snap photos of my food in public area like's new..

Well..I did went back to Penang last weekend as I told in my earlier post..well..I did went to ate the Taukua you should have guessed..

I was too shy to shy to get a much closer shot of the Taukua Rendang seller in action..ahaks

Did I come close??? Well let's compare..hehehe

the mamak's..


Hah this is the Ais Nyoq/Kelapa Campur..

While at this, we walked down to the Cendol guy a few blocks away and passed some shops selling all kinds of stuff when my hubby suggested that we come again next month for some street shopping cos we never got the chance to do any kind of shopping in Penang everytime we were back. It's all about visiting relatives. So InsyaAllah if that happens, I'll try to put on a thick face and pretend like some tourist from other states and clicks away.

Taukua Rendang

Last Friday when my hubby went to Penang for work matters, my kids and I didn't follow because we already went the week earlier for my nephew's nikah and we are going again this weekend for the wedding reception.

My hubby went toPenang Road on his own and one of his fav stop is the jeruk stall in Chowrasta Market where they sell all kinds of varieties in bulk. His next stop is surely the Taukua Rendang stall next to the market. What cheap good food to pair along with the bestest Ais Nyok Campur. This Ais Nyok Campur is so fragrant. Oh yes, the drain does smells too but what the If you are a Penangite you'll know what I mean. Penangites' residing in other states will always come back to this stall. Parking would be very hard to get especially during the school holidays. Actually I don't know how the name comes up to just being Taukua Rendang when actually you also have Cucur Udang with it as a set.

So when my hubby called up telling he was there, I'm so restless at home. Check my fridge and I have kucai, taugeh and prawns. So I had my Taukua Rendang too at home away from home.

It's just a normal cucur udang paired up with fried tahu with cucumber by the side. Dip in a sweet potato sauce garnished with peanuts and sesame seed.

I don't have cucumber so it was just the cucur udang with tahu. Of course la I'm more generous with the kucai and taugeh compared to the mamak's..hehehe

Batter for the cucur is so easy peasy to make. You just need wheat flour mix with water and add kucai and bean sprouts. A pinch of salt and that's about it. Scoop with a spoon into hot oil and put a prawn on top. Press a bit. You don't really want it to be round in shape. Not like the cucur udang in pasar malam where it puffed up like Humpty Dumpty. It's just about 1.5cm think. As for the sauce, I just boil half of 1 sweet potato and add 1/2 tsp of tamarind paste and salt/sugar. Add cornflour mix with a bit of water for extra thickness. You can anytime beat that stall I'm telling you.

I have so much passion in cooking. I love watching cooking shows, read cooking blogs, read recipe books and anything to do with cooking, I just love it. I really enjoy cooking for my family, friends and relatives. It’s just the cleaning up soon after is something that I don’t really fancy. So that portion of it I sub-con to my daughters all the

One of the meals that my family enjoys and not much cleaning up to do after is Spaghetti. I always use Prego Spaghetti Sauce that comes in the canned. It has a much more Malaysian kind of flavours. I don’t really like my sauce to be so tomatoed so I will normally add a few ingredients to enhance the flavours according to my taste.

The sauce.. What I’ll do is I will melt some butter in the pot and add diced onions, saute till fragrant and brown then add minced meat. Once cooked, I will put about 1tbs of chilli paste and mushrooms. Pour in the Prego sauce and ½ canned of Campbell’s tomato soup. Add water to desired thickness and melt in 3 to 4 slices cheddar cheese into the sauce. I also put in chilli sauce and add a bit of salt and ½ of chicken cube. My family loves the sauce cooked up this way..sour, creamy and a hint of spiciness all in one.

Gulai Lemak Nenas/Labu dengan Bebola Daging

Eventhough I don't really have the chance to update my blog as regularly as when I first started, I have been taking snaps of my cooking though. It's just that I don't really been able to squeeze in my time to get an entry done. I do realise that there are visitors to my blog, thank you for dropping by.

My sis in law were back home from New Zealand to visit her mum. She had brought a few pumpkins from her garden. Imagine how she had stuffed all that in her luggage. My mum in law gave me one half and that also took a few weeks to clear. One of the dishes I made from that was Gulai Lemak Nenas/Labu dengan Bebola Daging. This was inspired from one of Chef Wan's creation in the Ayamas cooking show. Instead of using just pineapple and chicken balls, I had used meatballs and added the pumpkin.

Copied the recipe directly from my archive...hehehe
