My grandma is a Nyonya, and her cooking were superb!! Till today, I can’t find any comparable (not even close) of those dishes that my grandma used to cook. I remembered the way she cooked, was very very tedious. Beside the taste, the presentation, the beauty of the food was a MUST to her. Even we cook on our own, we will not be able to ‘compare’ the way she cook!
I have a bottle of perut ikan aka fish stomach (which my mum has cleaned and store in a bottle with lots of salt) and with my home grown daun kaluk, lengkuas, mint leaves, daun kaffir, and daun kalsom, mum decided to cook this dish.
She went to the market early morning, and bought the rest of the stuff and give instruction on how to cook the dish to me!! That’s how busy my mum is nowadays, and she will just ‘give instruction’!
So, I took over and cooked this dish…First the ingredient…
AND NOW, let’s present the ‘main cast’
The Perut Ikan
