    Re: Sup Ayam Ala Mamak
    I remember when I was in KL a French friend and his Indian girl friend took me to a dinner at an Indian restaurant if I am not wrong in Chowkit area. And one of the food served was soup, but not sure whether its Soup ala Mamak.
    One thing for sure is that your blogs remind of my wonderful days in KL.

    Cheers my friend!

  4. Thank you for making the time Nizam despite your busy schedule,appreciate that very much.Probably it was Mamak is quite popular in Chow Kit area.I'm glad your stay in KL was a wonderful one and umidishes is able to remind you of that.Cheers my friend.

  5. LOL..Azuree dah siap pekena baguih punya dok lapaq lagi ka..hahaha

  6. Umihoney.
    Apasal sup ayam ni tak cukup pekat? Kalau kat kedai mamak tu dia punya ekat sampai dua hari pun tak ilang lagi bau kat mulut ni.

    Kenapa tak tukar blog ni ke template baru? Kalau tak tau e-mail saya. Saya tolong free jer ajar cara macamna.

  7. lunaticg terima kasih sudi ziarah umidishes.Sebagaimana biasa dalam masakan Asia, kita boleh campur dan tolak bahan2 didalamnya.Kalau nak pekat lagi tambahkan anggaran rempahnya dan tepungnya.Apa yang umi masak disini adalah mengikut selera kami sekeluarga.Sup yang sederhana pekat namun sedap,pada selera kamilah hehehe..anyways terima kasih sudi meluangkan masa menonton.
    Terima kasih juga sudi nak mengajar umi.Nanti bila kelapangan umi email ya.
    Jaga diri semoga sejahtera hendaknya,

  8. Good Work Umi you are smart ~:)
