235. My Homemade Cenchalu
I should say 'How to prepare my homemade cenchalu' ha ha... as it was hubby who is more expertise in making cenchalu than I do. So he makes, I prepare :p
And today I prepare a small portion of cenchalu as a side dish for lunch. BTW, that cenchalu in the pic is 3 days old and is 'ripe' to eat.
LOL... I've always called it cenchalu in my home, I wonder what you called it?
For some of you who have no idea what is this cenchalu all about, it's made of fresh shrimps that comes from the sea.
To make, cut up and sliced some red onions or large onions. Here I add both as I have some leftover onions. I've added some cutted not so green ( but hot ones) cili padi too.
Do not forget to squeeze lots of lime juice into the bowl of onions and cili padi
Lastly add in several tablespoons of cenchalu into the bowl.
Then I add some salt and ajinomoto to taste.
And walaaa... here I have my bowl of prepared ready to eat cencalu. It would be looking pretty here if I'd have red cili padi instead of the not so green ones but the taste matters most he he...
And the TASTE when eaten is tremendous! It's hot, it's sourish and it's delicious and made a great appetizer for my lunch today!
