ASSAM PEDAS DAGING TETEL / HOT SOUR BEEF SOUP



Assam Pedas literally means hot and sour soup. Popular among the southern Malaysian, ie Johor and Malacca. This soup is fiery hot ...but still you can slurp the soup like nobody business. This soup provides a pungent and zesty feast of flavour with every slurp. What makes this soup recipe special is the uniquely combination of the herbs and tamarind juice. These combinations marry beautifully with the chili paste and tamarind juice.

Perfect with hot steamed rice.

Daging tetel dari projek daging korban baru ini saya buat assam pedas.  Ini memang kesukaan saya kena pula dengannasi panas dan ikan asin...memang menyelerakan. Resipi ini paling sedap kalau dapat ekor lemut dan masak dengan pressure cooker sehingga empuk. Kena gaya hirup macam hirup air kelapa sejuka. Cukup mantap.
