A Plate of Wholesome Stir Fried Cincalok Chicken with Pickled Averrhoa Bilimbi & Stinking Beans

I just love creating this dish after indulging a similar flavor and taste at two awesome dinnery, one at Little Yum Yum Restaurant, Kota Damansara and the other at Pau Loong Banquet Hall, Teluk Intan.

At Little Yum Yum I just love how pickled Averrhoa Bilimbi or Belimbing Buluh being put into play on their beautiful nyonya dish, cincalok chicken. While indulging Pau Loong Banquet Hall had their fish fillet cooked in cincalok sauce and my second visit, I had the same sauce with squid. There were explosive dishes, great flavour, awesome taste and definitely a memorable one that can easy stick in one’s brain like mind . . . . . . lol!

Since those awesome superb taste and flavor still cracking in my head, I just have to create something similar at my private kitchen. For me I just love those little jewel, Pickled Averrhoa Bilimbi and that is an issue and need to sort out first. They are not easy to find ingredient but I manage to find them at Malay stall located at Chow Kit night market. I was told it is a seasonal fruit that has a short life span as it will go soft and wet very easily. Pickling them would be the best thing to do, I was advised.

Norman Musa Fires Up His Curries in UK & his Cookbook Winners

Hello all

It has been a while again since I last wrote about my ‘journey’. I have to say it has been mad crazy with my schedule in the last couple of months. I went back twice to Malaysia within 2 weeks. Not because I can afford it but because of my duty to promote Malaysian food in the UK.

In the last two months, I was busy with many cooking demos like Manchester Food & Drink Festival, Northwest Food Lovers Festival and also touring all Wing Yip Chinese Superstores in the UK. Started in Manchester, where I am based and then followed by Croydon, Cricklewood and Birmingham. The reception was overwhelming. What make it so good is the fact that I met many Malaysians who have lived in London for a very long time and some for more than 40 years and yet still craving for Malaysian food. They were very supportive knowing that I am promoting the cuisine and my cookbook ‘Malaysian Food’ in the UK.

Serai Empire
Serai Empire

SERAI is a name that always buzz in my head. I just love it’s lemony fragrant and taste that can burst inside your mouth which may work wonders. It is definitely an amazing herb that is being infused into our drinks, soups and curries. Yet here at Empire Shopping Gallery I stumbled upon an eatery by the name of Serai Empire. I definitely recognised this restaurant as it is run by Chef Najib who I interviewed few months back for the newspaper. Now he is heading this kitchen. His creations are so well recieved and I was told the restaurant is packed during weekends.
