Mamarazzi Cooks Watercress Soup and Papa Cooks Fish Paste with Taugeh



After Mamarazzi's experiment withe the Water chestnuts Thong Sui, she still have some left over.


Bought RM2 watercress from the market. Darn it...the next day it became yellow liao. Old stock? Well, Mamarazzi still managed to salvage a handful to cook.

Just wash. Did not soak it in the water for long coz she discovered that if soak in water long time, the watercress will become bitter. Maybe coz it "hidup balik"?

Chop the water chestnut into half. Throw into the pot and boil with some meat, red dates and watercress. Add salt to taste

 The soup taste much sweeter than the usual watercress soup. Mamarazzi loves the crunchiness of the water crestnut.

 
Papa pulak in a frying mood . Bought a packet of the fish paste, taugeh, Daun Kuchai(Chives?) and carrot. Mix everything together and fry. 


This is the end result. Not bad leh. Got the crunchiness of the taugeh.



But of all the dishes that evening....I love the salted fish the best. Yum....

  3. I like sai yeong choy tong too.. Yep, usually will boil with watercress, red dates and pork ribs.. Sedap to the max! During pregnancy they say cannot drink so much, coz the soup is "leong" one.. But now, weather so hot in the afternoon, nice to have a bowl of sai yeong choy soup too..

    Yummzz, I love the fried fish cakes.. But my style very simple nia.. I mix pork, fish, one egg, spring onions (choong), corn starch, soya sauce and pepper.. I don't think I will open wok and fry too, coz I'm lazy ma, then need to deal with oil splatters and all.. I think I will roll into balls, then bake in oven, hehe, lazy style punyer version..

    But of coz, frying version is more sedap.. I would like to have a pieces with cili+mayonnaise dip please!

  12. This Fish Paste with Taugeh convinced me that it is a yummy food! This Kaldip's own patent recipe kah? I could only think of the nearest recipe is the Thai Fish Cakes minus taugeh.

  13. Yeah, watercress is a fast-perishable plant that's why I normally buy two bunches. I sometimes like to just fry it with garlic and mini-anchovies and a slice or two of ginger.

    I normally soak vegs with salt added in the water - to dislodge worms. Believe me, even such clean-looking cauliflower does have pretty light-blue worms. Okay, back to watercress, the trick to not having bitter watercress soup is to put in the watercress ONLY when the water is boiling. Try it the next time.

    Your man's fried fish paste dish looks seriously delicious. :D
