Just a simple update on my contribution for UMU Magz #3, a mountain climbing e-magazine. Having said goodbye to personal projects and ultimately made peace with it, hopefully have stopped being in denial trying to convince myself that one day, one fine day, one good bright sunny day, I would go back to those good old times, I happily share one of my favorite simple dish invented back in those days.
When it comes to salad, I am pretty much adventurous. By that, I mean sometimes I got a plate of heaven freshy, other times a bowl of garbage. Organic garbage, though 🙂
But this one, I think you can eat. And like, actually. The secret duo are: pecel sauce and cilantro. They unsurprisingly love each other, by the way.
Pecel spice is a spice mix popular in Indonesia, that is used to make the sauce in Pecel dish — an orchestra of steamed veggies that you have to try once in your lifetime because it’s oh-so-good.
Cilantro, well, you know it’s the magic thing that brought Thailand to the glamor world of international food realm. Cilantro is one of God’s exceptional gifts to the world. World with palates like you and me. It turns simple dishes to extravaganza. Making it special, making it expensive.
The salad’s gone already, sorry. Can’t help myself.

Morning of Idul Adha. Prayed in mosque, went back home.
While hubby was sipping his morning coffee, I threw the ribs I fixed up the night before into the slow cooker and let it cook on HIGH until lunch time. Washed the rice, fixed up the spices, and threw them all into the rice cooker.
By lunch time, the ribs were stewing, the cardamom rice was warming in the rice warmer, Pacri Nanas was cooling in the fridge.
Happy Idul Adha to all muslims in the world!
May Allah accept our sacrifice and place us in highest place.
I was tagged by Burcu of Almost Turkish Recipes with this meme, initiated by Angelika of The Flying Apple. Dash off to her lovely blog to find out more about it.
Oh, boy! I’m so terrible at entertaining, let alone constructing a menu. But I do have some favorite dishes I hope my foodblogger guests would enjoy as much as I do.
