Starfruit Drink


This is an Old school drink that I was craving for so many years. I had this drink from a drink stall along Northtumberland Road, Farrer Park when we use to live at Race Course Road. Now it's really hard to find this drink so I decided to DIY. My sister gave me a 👍👍👍👍 for it. Add sng buay for a more intense flavour. This awesome drink will let you take a walk down memory lane.
Starfruit drink.

4 starfruits, sliced.
Add in 1 tsp salt and leave aside for an hour.
After an hour spoon salted starfruit
 into a sterilized bottle and leave at room temperature for a day.
Next day Cook sugar syrup, 300 gms sugar and 500 ml water and let it cool. Then pour into the starfruit and leave aside for a day.
Then store in the fridge.
After a few days, pour out the liquid add in warm or cold water to consume.
Add ice or not water according to your taste.
When you finish up all the liquid you can add in a second round of sugar syrup to the starfruit and leave it for a day or two before consuming.

Note: Add some sng buay or salted sour plums for extra flavour. I find that adding sng buay gives the starfruit drink a more intense flavour.

Nasi Lemak Onigiri


This recipe is inspired by a 7 Eleven product. It sounds weird but wait till you try making your own Nasi Lemak Onigiri. It's a far cry from those you get at 7 Eleven and much much tastier. I saw a video online that mixes hard boiled eggs, chopped fried ikan bilis and peanuts into the rice. I am only adding in chopped fried white baits and fried peanuts. I like it and I am sure you would, too.

Nasi Lemak Onigiri

Ingredients:

1 cup Japanese rice
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 pandan leaf
1/8 tsp salt
50 gms chopped white baits and fried peanuts
2 tbsp sambal chilli for brushing

Method:

Wash the rice and add in the coconut milk and pandan leaf and cook rice in a pot.
When rice is done. Fluff it up and let it cool for a minute.
Add in the chopped ingredients and mix well.
Shape rice into triangles and set aside. This recipe makes 4 medium onigiris.
Heat up a frying pan and grease with a little oil.
Brush the Onigiri with the sambal chilli and grill till crispy.
Carefully turn the Onigiri to the other side and grill till crispy.
Serve Onigiris hot when it is crispy outside and soft inside.
