3 - HOT AND SPICY SIMPLE DAILY DISHES - DRIED CURRY CRABS , FISH ASSAM PEDAS AND BANAN YELLOW CREAM CURRY

Curry, Assam Pedas and Masak Lemak, are always a preferences when deciding what to cook for lunch or dinner. I love all three, and used to rotate the dishes with either chicken, beef or fish. These are my family favorite, smoky and hot with hint of spiciness. Every time I asked the children what to cook for lunch or dinner definitely these 3 dishes will be their selections. I believe these are not only my family favorite but also Malaysia favorites. So let's start with my Dried Curry Crabs.


DRIED CURRY CRABS
My family Top 3 crabs recipes are:
  • Curry - wet or dried
  • Masak Lemak with pineapple
  • Fried Crab with Taucho
And of course the No: 1 on the list is Dried Curry Crabs Nasi Kandar Style. Del

Kari, Assam Pedas dan Masak Lemak, adalah favorite dan selalu menjadi menu pilihan harian. Tak kiralah ayam, daging ataupun ikan, tukang masak di rumah akan rotate menu ini. Memang tidak dapat disangkal lagi, malah sajian ini adalah sajian kenegerian, Asam Pedas, Johor dan Melaka, Masak Lemak orang Nogori dan Kari favorite orang Utara, so macam mana pun sajian ini selalu menduduki tangga teratas sekali,


Untuk entry kali ini saya memilih ketiga-tiga sajian ini, dimulakan dengan kari Kering Ketam. Selalunya kalau memasak ketam ini saya sama ada memasak kari tak kiralah kering atau pun basah, masak lemak ketam nenas ataupun ketam goreng taucho. Tapi NO:1 favorite anak-anak ialah kari kering ini. Kalau masak biasanya 2 kg tak cukup, habis waktu makan tengah hari, tiada siaran ulangan. Memang sedap makan dengan nasi panas. Kari ini adalah ala-ala Nasi Kandar, pedas dan berempah. -SELAMAT MENJAMU SELERA.
