FRIED WILD BOAR ACCORDING TO AH KOW


On a slow boat down the Rejang River, Ah Kow managed to purchase wild boar and cooked it along the way in his boat. This is the result when the boat berthed in town.

• Wild Boar
• Garlic
• Ginger
• Lemongrass
• Dark Soy Sauce
• Star Arnise
• White Tau Joo (Fermented Beancurd)

Cooking time is dependent on the condition of the boar - young or old. So frying and adding water when it dries up is the order of the day, until the meat is tender.

I'm not too fond of the thick skin, but its tiny spare ribs is another matter. Beneath all the skin, its lean meat is a taste to be reckoned with. "Tastes like chicken" is not the phrase to be used here; nor does the no-brainer "pork"! Well, it tastes like wild boar!

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...
