207. Sayur Paku

This is the vegetable we called 'Paku'. I talked about another vegetable of the same family the other day which was called 'Midin' the other day. Well, today I cooked this the same way that I cooked the 'Sayur Midin'.

And it was delicious!

The 'Paku' after I cut them, ready to be washed and cooked.


Saute grounded chillies, belacan paste, 2 shallots and 2 garlic in some oil. When cooked, just add the washed 'Paku', stir well and when soft add salt to taste.


Today I added some small fresh prawns to these 'Paku'. And it even more delicious!


Cheerio.

Hi Pn Isah
With belacan in it, the tumis paku must be very tasty! Would dried shrimps be a good substitute? I remember your posting on sayur midin. Just curious whether paku & midin can be cooked together. Do Sarawakians also cook paku or midin in coconut milk? Have a nice day!

hi temuk, good to hear from you again.oh yes, very tasty cooked that way with belacan, tastier if eaten immediately! dried shrimps certainly would make a good substitute, better I think, just that I didn't have any in the house then :)
cooking paku & midin together, now that I have not tried ha ha..but cooking either paku or midin in coconut milk, that's rarely done here in Sarawak but I did taste once when I was in Gombak before. It was okay for me but if I do cook with santan at home I am sure the children won't eat the midin or paku. They are not used to.
This is interesting, thank you for bringing this up :)
Have a good day, take care :)
