Asam Rebus

Now, I am back to the blog world. Its been a while.... Right now, I am still trying to settle in and I cant wait to start something in the kitchen.. My own little corner..

Last night, I've made a local dish that mom cooked regularly back home. This is one of my favorites. Its Asam Rebus. It is a hot and sour dish. I remember when mom cooked this for us and she wanted us to eat, she always trick us by saying "if you want to be on diet, eat this soup more, then you'll lose weight..." hahaha.. Usually mom used mackerel (ikan kembung) or golden band scad (ikan selar kuning) with long beans and tomatoes for this recipe. Since I am unable to get these fishes here, I went for easy one, no fish and veges and not too spicy.

I think this not a good photo, becoz at that point of time, i did not think of my blog.. luckily, i managed to get a pic before i start digg in... I added rice to the soup..

You'll need:
1 big onion
2 garlic
2 dry chillies, cut and soak
1/4 tsp ginger powder
1 dried tamarind fruit slices (asam keping)
salt and pepper to taste
alittle bit of sugar
imitation crab meats

Blend onion, garlic, ginger powder and chillies in the blender. In a big saucepan, add a little oil to stir fry the mixture. Then add water. Bring everything to boil. Lastly, add the crab meats, salt and pepper to taste.
