Eating Raw Okra With Sambal Anchovies (Ikan Bilis)

I haven't been out for morning walk for more than a week. We have to wait for the EMCO to end on 4th June. By the 5th morning, we can safely resume our morning walk according to the latest nationwide MCO sop. Until then, I will enjoy the sunrises from the front of my house.

Sunrise at 7:15am

Breakfast
Hubby went out on his motorcycle to buy breakfast.
Wat Tan Hor (Noodle with thick egg gravy).
Flat rice noodle (koay teow) stir fried with oil, dark and light soy sauce was placed separately from the thick egg gravy.
Wat Tan Hor with the thick egg gravy poured over the stir fried noodle.
Hubby's breakfast after I have taxed a few mouthfuls.
Hubby's breakfast and 2-in-1 black coffee for us.
I had peanut butter on toast for breakfast.
This cockscomb flower was too heavy for the plant. The small plant was leaning to one side due to the weight of the flower.

Lunch
I didn't snap photo of hubby's lunch so I can't remember what he ate but the following photos show what I ate.
There was bread, sambal anchovies and freshly picked okras from my garden. Fresh raw okras are crunchy and nice to eat. 
So I decided that I want to try making sandwich with sambal anchovies and raw okra.
This was how I ate it.
Then I decided to try okra with sambal anchovies without the bread and found that it is nicer this way.

Home cooked dinner.
Steamed a small sized grouper fish with chopped ginger and garlic. Once cooked, I poured a mixture of Chinese cooking wine, oyster and soy sauce over the fish before serving.
Steamed minced pork with preserved vegetable (tong choy).
Sambal dried prawn with home grown sweet potato leaves.
I almost burnt this dish because I was distracted by phone call.
It was edible but overcooked.
Thank God for His provision that we can enjoy this simple home cooked dinner.


There before me lies the mighty ocean,
teeming with life of every kind, both great and small.
And look! See the ships!
And over there, the whale you made to play in the sea.
Every one of these depends on you to give them daily food.
You supply it, and they gather it.
You open wide your hand to feed them,
and they are satisfied with all your bountiful provision.
(Psalm 104:25-28, The Living Bible-TLB)

    1. I think the green long okra is the more crunchy type. I think the short green one also crunchy if eaten raw.

  4. I never knew that okra could be eaten raw. Since you can get yours fresh from your garden, it is so ideal. I doubt if we can get them fresh like that (and eat raw) if buying from the market or supermarket.

    1. I have only tried eating raw home grown okras. Freshly plucked taste the best.

  5. Never thought of eating okra raw. I'll see if my parents, who have some plants in the garden, are game to try.

    I like the way you make the steamed fish.

  7. Beautiful sky and I could see how dense the cockscomb for that little plant. I think you could take a little walk around your home like my father chose an empty street nearby. Take care

  11. You cooked the minced meat because your hubby only eats a little fish so he needs to eat the minced meat,right?

  12. Sweet potato leaves are one of my favorite vegetables! I love to have them sautéed with garlic and fermented bean sauce.

  13. So have you propped or tied the cockscomb up? We do not use egg gravy here, I would love to know how to make it.

  17. Raw okra is crunchy and delicious.

    My hope is that you can get to go for walks again soon, although your sky shots are just as pretty right where you are.
