FRIED BELACAN KANGKONG


Another quickie from the kitchen of Ah Lee, Pulau Babi place in Sibu. This time the man is behind the wok instead of his brother. Same technique used as the fried beansprouts, the preparation is ¾ of the task. Cut the Kangkong (water convolvulus) into bite-size (discard the big fibrous parts), and the rest of the ingredients in another plate. Dried (oven or pan-roasted) Belacan (shrimp paste) about ½" thick and the size of a quarter coin can be used instead.







INGREDIENTS

1 Plate of Kangkong

1 Chili (Julienned)

1 Clove Garlic Minced

1 Tbsp. Belacan Paste

4 Tbsp. Cooking Oil

¼ Cup Water

Salt To Taste



METHOD


Heat up the wok, oil it, and then dump in the garlic, chili and belacan paste...

... quickly wok the way around to work off the fragrance for a few seconds - before the garlic turns golden in color.

Empty the plate of kangkong into the wok.Give it a whril or two to fully coat it with the belcan oil.

Add a sprinkle of water to moisten, and salt to taste.

Give it a final toss... or two.

Then it's good to go...

... 3 minutes or less!

Does he have kangkong with pig's blood? Any idea where they serve that these days?

sometimes he does depends on availability and freshness of pig's blood. last night someone at sri meranti, hardin lane, had pig's blood with koay teow soup. the best is still pig's blood kangkong fried with lard. yums!!!

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...

May the Farce be With You!
