nope. i kid you not. this entry is about singgang sotong. and let me tell you, this is the first time i've tasted and made singgang sotong.
i haven't been feeling too good for the past few days...and my appetite is craving for the weirdest i don't know whats...so, yesterday i decided to make singgang. not fish, like the kind i'm used to, but sotong. i took the recipe from chef hanieliza's book, again.
i dunno...maybe it's because i'm used to fish singgang...or maybe it's because i'm not feeling too good, but to me, squid and singgang, just do not go. the taste of the squid was really bland, not like fish when the flesh of the fish sort of absorbs the singgang gravy...i dunno. maybe you guys can give it a try and let me know.
here's the recipe.
2 cloves garlic, pounded
2 lemongrass, lightly pounded
2 red chillies, sliced
1 cucumber, cut in strips - i used just a little bit
3 stalks chinese celery, i used only a litle bit for garnishing
2 asam keping, or asam gelugor
½tsp turmeric powder
2 cups water
salt to taste
the how to:
1) clean the squid and set aside.
2) in a pot, put everything inside except for the squid and the chinese celery.
3) let it simmer till it starts to boil.
4) add in the squid and let it boil once again.
5) take the pot off the heat and it's ready to serve.
