Masak Lemak Cili Api Perut dan Pegaga & Kerabu Perut



I know not all of you like this. Among Malay community in Malaysia, some call this 'babat' and some call it as 'perut'...whatever the name is, it's delicious as ever.

After quite sometime it was in the freezer, I decided to make something of it... Firstly I prepared it by soaking in some tamarind juice, lemon and salt for an hour. Next, clean and sliced it, then cook about 20 minutes in a pressure cooker.

I discovered that there were so many pieces of 'perut' in the pressure cooker. I decided to make two dishes from these, Kerabu Perut and Masak Lemak Cili Padi with Pegaga. There were so delicious because the 'perut' just melted in the mouth (the effect of the pressure cooker..hehehe). Here is how I made both...

Ain, masak lemak pegaga mmg sedap.Kak Myza biasa masak dgn ikan tenggiri sbb k. Myza dgn ank tak makan perut. 'Babat" tu biasnya perut yg panjang tu! "Tembusu" tu yang mcm kain towel tu! Kerabu pegaga mmg favourite! tapi tak campur perut la!

kak myza, ini kali pertama ain buat msk lemak bubuh pegaga, sedap jugak kan. Oh kak myza tak mkn perut ye... Perut yg dijual kat ireland ni dah siap dibersihkan tak busuk mcm perut kat malaysia, tp ain still rendam skjp dgn air asam. Oh 'tembusu' ke namanya...hehe..baru chek tau. Ain suka semua jenis kerabu tp kat sini susah nak dpt ulam2 yg ada kat malaysia tu..
