Rice porridge


Today is Saturday another day for me to rest (not really rest but mostly a day with my hubby and kids..which I love even though it is a tiring day ..lol) before I start to work on Sunday. Last night hubby requested for me to prepare one of his favourite breakfast dish..a 'bubur nasi' or rice porridge. I learnt this recipe from my MIL. It is basically the same as bubur nasi that you have during a buffet breakfast at a hotel (ops! sorry I don't know what is the real name of this bubur nasi)..but that one the bubur is very light with lots of water, in my version of bubur nasi the bubur has to be a bit solid and sticky :). It has to be garnished with fried anchovies, pickled radish, fried peanut, salted egg and dashed of light soy sauce but my hubby and kids don't like pickled radish and salted egg so usually I don't add that. The most important thing is the red thing on top of it..what should I call it? not really a 'sambal' a sort of garnishing too..very easy to prepare and it add some hot and spicy flavour to the plain bubur nasi. I don't have the recipe too..main agak- agak jer :)
To prepare the hot and spicy garnishing, first I fried some dried shrimp without oil until it cooked. Then put them in the food processor with fresh chillies and blend until it becomes fine mixture and finally chopped some large onion into the mixture..done. It is Aiman's and Danial's fav too..

pssssst: Farah have a try tau...depa ni suka..mana tau kot2 Syabil will like it...:)
