Turmeric Rice & Chicken Rendang

We had finished our morning walk and breakfast at our regular coffee shop. I didn't take snapshots of our breakfast because it must be the same common breakfast.

As we were coming out of the coffee shop, I saw a few mourning doves looking for food on the road.
The birds were not easily frightened off by passers by.
~~~~~
Later in the morning, we visited a food catering shop or Restaurant Seri Meesan. The boss is one of hubby's friend. Before the pandemic, we used to order from this caterer whenever we need to hold a function.
With the Chinese New Year less than a month away, he is promoting the above dish known as "Poon Choy".
And also the above set meal for those who don't feel like cooking.
Before we left the restaurant, we bought a few packages of frozen ready to eat food. All we have to do is to submerge the package of food into boiling water for a few minute and once you opened the package, the food can be served.
A friend gave me a tub of turmeric rice, cooked by her partner.
Turmeric rice: Briyani rice, turmeric, coconut oil.
When I opened the cover of the tub, I can smell a nice fragrance.
Chicken Rendang.
Instead of submerging the frozen package of chicken rendang into boiling water, this old fashion auntie prefer to open the package, poured the content into a steaming bowl and steamed the chicken rendang covered before serving.
Our one dish dinner without spending much time in the kitchen.
I only need to steam the turmeric rice and chicken rendang before serving.

A friend sent me the above video. Its a short video of the glow worm.


Lord, deal with me in loving-kindness,
and teach me, your servant, to obey; for I am your servant;
therefore give me common sense to apply your rules to everything I do.
(Psalm 119:124-125, The Living Bible-TLB)

  6. Hi Nancy :) Mourning Doves are my favourite birds, I love how they coo. :) They live in the pine trees in our back woods. That chicken dish looks so delicious! Looks like perfect comfort food! :)

  14. The pot would be easier to wash if you don't remove the plastic! I'd worry about heating up plastic too.

    1. No need to wash the pot if the food is steamed.

  21. How nice to be able to boil a bag and have supper almost ready.

    The birds are not going to be very afraid if they are around people all of the time.

    1. The birds have got used to people. The most is they will just move away if someone gets too close to them.
