#10: Udang Lemak Cili Padi

16th June 2015

We reached recipe #10! Not bad huh? So this time we tried cooking my favorite Udang Lemak Cili Padi and the stir fry mixed vege! We must have balanced diet right? So must add vege, and i liked how the colors of the vege mix in real well 🙂 The mixed vege is crunchy. Tasty. Colourful. This is perhaps one of the best vegetable dishes that I can serve on the plate, for friends and family or for unexpected guests. Plus, colours and smell can stimulate one’s brain to enjoy the dish more. As for Irman, he is in-charge of homemade (with love) mushroom soup made from scratch okay!

Udang Lemak Cili Padi Ingredients:
Tumeric Leaves/ Daun Kunyit
Blended Ingredients:

  1. 5 red chilies
  2. 5 chili padi
  3. 1 lemongrass
  4. 5 garlic/ bawang putih
  5. 1 bawang besar
  6. 3 slices of ginger/ halia
  7. 5 candlenuts / buah keras
  8. 3 cm of turmeric/ serbuk kunyit

2 packet of coconut milk/ santan
2 cups of water
1 asam keping (one means 1, don’t overdo it pls)
Chicken/ Crab/ Prawn
Potato (sliced)
Tomato (optional)
Telur Burung (optional)

Mushroom Soup Ingredients:

  • 4 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • Small handful of shiitake mushrooms (chopped)
  • 3/4 cup minced shallots (6 ounces, 170 g)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (3 teaspoons)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups (1 liter) chicken stock
  • 1/2 (120 ml) cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper (more or less to taste)
1 Heat olive oil on medium high heat in a 5-6 quart thick-bottomed pot. When the oil is hot, swirl in the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the mushrooms, stir to coat with the olive oil and butter. Cook the mushrooms on medium high heat until they are lightly browned and have released most of their water. Remove 1 cup of the cooked mushrooms from the pot and set aside (they will be added back in later).

2 Reduce heat to medium. Add the minced shallots and the garlic to the pot, stir to combine, cook for about a minute. Add the salt and the stock to the pot. Increase the heat to medium high, bring to a simmer and cook, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
3 Using an immersion blender or working in batches with a standing blender, purée the soup until smooth. Then return to the pot. (If the soup is too thick for you, add some water or more stock to thin the soup to the desired level of thickness.)
4 Whisk the cream into the soup and add the black pepper. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Stir in the reserved cooked mushrooms.
