PAKU RAWAN GORENG BELACAN


I am so sorry, I couldn't find the term in English, however this vegetable falls under the aquatic group. Found near swamp area. I learned to eat this from my maid. This vegetables can only be found in Farmer's Market. It is fantastic if you stir fried the Goreng Belacan way. I prefer to blanch and topped the vegetables with sambal. To be frank this is a fantastic dish serve best with hot rice. You don't need other dish to supplement. Believe me it's delicious.

Paku Rawan, mungkin ramai yang tidak tahu, tetapi sayur ini memang sedap. Boleh didapati di Pasar Tani. Saya belajar mengenalinya melalui pembantu rumah saya. Ini merupakan sayur favoritenya dan selalu direbus dan makan dengan sambal belacan. Saya lebih gemar celur dan buat sambal goreng. Memang sedap dengan Nasi Panas. Percayalah kalau dah makan anda tidak perlu lauk lain. Cukup begitu aje. Tak percaya cuba.
