WHO LET THE CHICKEN OUT
Today as I prepare the dishes for the pre-dawn meal, I remember how wonderful it was to welcome Ramadhan in the village back when I was a teenager. Mum always wanted to cook Chicken Rendang for the first night of Ramadhan. That was not the problem. Catching the chicken was. Early morning saw me and my bro running around trying to catch the chicken. Bro was not catching, he was shooing the chicken farther and farther coz he loved his chicken. To him they were pets. Problem solved when mum came out and bro had to behave.
And he would be gone all day after that sulking. He wouldn't eat the Rendang either. Hahaha..we were quite happy to have his share. Those were the days..very happy carefree days.
A friend who is now residing in Netherland, Mr. August T informed me that last nite he had tried cooking one of my dishes here called Petai Berlada for a gathering of friends. Turned out well and they had enjoyed the dish. I am so glad to know that. The recipes here are for sharing and sharing is caring. He has sent a snapshot of the dish that he cooked.He is a good cook ya.
