Bubur Lambuk.

During the month of Ramadan, my cousin Azizah with the help of her husband cooks bubur lambuk for free distribution at a mosque near their home in Shah Alam.

Everyday they cook three big pots of bubur lambuk at home and in the late afternoon send it to the mosque to be distributed to the people before the breaking of fast (iftar).

I have been wanting to taste her bubur lambuk for ages but never did because of time constraint.

Yesterday when we visited her after a late lunch in Klang town, we were in luck !
She was in the midst of cooking and stirring the almost ready to eat bubur lambuk.

When it was ready she packed a big packet of the fragrant bubur lambuk topped with deep fried shallots and freshly chopped coriander leaves for us to takeaway.


Bubur Lambuk (Porridge)-cooked with beef, dried shrimp, fresh shrimp, Chai Poh (preserved Radish), ginger, garlic, lemongrass, pepper.......etc-topped with deep fried Burma's shallot and freshly chopped coriander leaves-gooey and smooth-a simple and nutritious meal.

I had the most satisfying porridge yesterday at Ikano. At the basement there a mini foodcourt with three stalls. The one in the middle stall sells porridge, tau foo fa, soy milk and other drinks. Their yiao tiu and other ham chim pengs are freshly made daily. Good for tea time. Set A: A small bowl of porridge and one pair of crispy yiao tiu cost only RM3.90 :-D Try it one day.

The other stalls are yong tau foo/noodle and chow koay teow/fried rice.

Speaking of Ikano, a few stalls away from this mini food court there's a mamak stall which sells really good nasi lemak (those prepacked ones (rendang chic is really yummy. They have cockle also. And, they have 'panas' also).
