Nasi Dagang

This is nasi dagang Kelantan.

Nasi dagang served for Aidilfitri 

Nasi dagang bungkus

Here is how to make nasi dagang as narrated to me by Nenek Wae on 21 May 2011.

Beras putih
Beras nasi dagang
1 cawan santan cair
1 cawan santan pekat

Nasi dagang (rice)
Mix the 2 types of rice and wash 3x to clean
Steam (kukus) till rice is half cooked
Remove rice and add santan cair, salt, sugar, halba, red onion (bawang merah), garlic (bawang putih)
Steam again till cooked
Removed cooked rice and add santan. Stir to mix
Serve hot.

Note: Do not need to steam the rice again after adding thick santan. However, some people choose to steam again and this will cause the rice to become soft & soggy and not taste so good.Soft nasi dagang will easily spoil, become stale (mudah basi).

Nasi dagang fish gravy
Clean fish
Cook the gravy as usual by boiling but use thick santan (santan pekat)
Add asam keping, salt, sugar
The gravy must be thick and a bit sour as nasi dagang is fatty

Masakan Tradisi Kelantan

"While this study provides interesting clues that omega-3 fatty acids in diet may be linked to amyloid levels in blood, it doesn't show whether this directly translates to less toxic amyloid in the brain and a lower risk of Alzheimer's disease."

We visited Ayah in Tanah Merah and had lunch at his place.

Masakan singgam ikan darat dengan daun kesum 

Ikan darat (sungai) = ikan lampam, ikan tumae or ikan kerae? 

This is ikan lampam. The flesh is soft and white and contains lots of fine bones.It is difficult to eat this freshwater fish without choking on the bones! 

Fried fish (ikan kembung goreng) 

Daging goreng (Fried beef + onion + oil) 

Ayam goreng kicap (Fried chicken + onion + kicap + oil)
