Nasi Kunyit, Assam Laksa, Neen Koh & Flower Crab Soup

Our morning walk started at about 6:54am.

No sign of sunrise at 6:54am.

Hubby and a friend compared notes on nasi kunyi.
The friend recommended this place with a better nasi kunyit at the Dong Ku Teng Restaurant in Canning Garden.
Nasi kunyit or turmeric rice (glutinous rice coloured with turmeric powder).
Hubby had the nasi kunyit served with chicken curry.
This chicken curry has a thicken gravy compared to others place.
I wanted to order curry noodle from the same stall but was told that only the dry version was available which I didn't want. So, I ordered prawn noodle instead, also from the same stall. The seller is generous with the prawns and fish cake slices. This stall starts business at about 6:30am.
Midday sky.
Blue sky and white fluffy clouds.

Having nothing to do, we drove to Ipoh Garden to buy neen koh and assam laksa.
We bought 4 pieces of fried neen koh and 2 pieces of fried banana. Then bought 2 portions of assam laksa and 2 pieces of crunchy fried bean curd sheet from another stall.
We have tried the neen koh a few times but this is the first time buying the fried bananas.
Look at the sticky neen koh oozing out from between the taro and potato slices. Neen koh is steamed and hardened sweet glutinous rice cake.
Crunchy fried bean curd sheet from the assam laksa stall.
Assam laksa with sweet sour fish flakes broth.
Assam laksa broth with thick rice noodle (lai fun).

Simple home cooked dinner.
As I will be cooking flower crabs, I cooked egg with ginger strips soup for hubby. He had steamed rice with this soup.
As I was still quite full, I didn't want any rice. I cooked flower crabs with ginger and wine soup for myself. I haven't had this dish for a long, long time. I gave a portion to my neighbour.

To quarrel with a neighbor is foolish;
a man with good sense holds his tongue.
(Proverbs 11:12, The Living Bible-TLB)

  3. Your nasi kunyit and curry look so good! We don't have fried nien gao here - I did get to buy some very nice ones in Kuching once. In fact, here, we do not see nien gao unless it's Chinese New Year.

    1. We can enjoy nice fried nien gao from Pasir Pinji and Bercham the whole year. Before pandemic, we have to pre-order the fried nien gao.

  8. Me alegro mucho de que halláis disfrutado de tan bonito día, y de tan espectacular y bello cielo.
    Como el menú de hoy es tan abundante y variado, no sabría decirte cual de ellos me gusta más, porque me gustan todos, pero lo que si te quiero decir es, que el plátano frito es una especialidad de las islas españolas de Las Palmas de Gran Canarias, islas productoras de unos de los mejores plátanos del mundo, y que no hay que confundir con las bananas.
    Y por cierto, en la Isla de la Palma llevan cuarenta días con un volcán en erupción, y la lava volcánica está arrasando con buena parte de las plantaciones de plátanos, y con las viviendas de sus habitantes. Una desgracia contra la que no se puede hacer nada, ya que contra la fuerza de la Naturaleza no hay nada que hacer.
    Me ha gustado mucho, tu entrada de hoy.
    Que disfrutes de una bonita y feliz semana, amiga Nancy.

    1. Thank you, Manuel. So sad about the volcano lava destroying the banana plantations and homes. Hope the farmers will receive help to rebuild their farms and lives. Have a wonderful weekend.

  10. Delicious flower crabs and nien gao. While nien gao is easy to eat but the flower crabs take time to eat. Did you spend one hour to eat the flower crabs? The previous time I ate crabs took more than one hour. Sweat 😅!

    1. Thank you, Mun. No problem with the crabs. Since we are at home, I took my own sweet time to taste the crabs. I didn't keep track of the time. Haha.
