374. Sayur Keladi Masak Asam

Pernah makan 'Sayur Keladi'? In English this is called 'Yam' and what I cooked was the yam stalks as well as the yam fruit itself. Usually you can find these sold in any 'Tamu' or market in your area. For some yam, the seller has them ready sliced and put into a plastic bag. So all you have to do is just wash and boil them in water first before cooking. Boiling will rid off the 'getah' or 'gatal' of the yam.

Today I cooked 2 bunches of this 'sayur', which hubby has bought on his way back from Niah yesterday. Usually the children like their dad to cook this because he can cook this dish well. Today I said let me give it a try. Lagi pun their dad was busy somewhere with work :)


My homemade 'Sayur Keladi'



What vital ingredient you must have in this dish besides your onions and chillies is you must have some very thinly sliced 'Daun Kunyit' (Turmeric leaves).

Turmeric Leaves (2 stalks)



To Cook :-

1. Ground 2 red chillies, 2 garlic, 3 small shallots & 1 tablespoon belacan (shrimp paste).

2. Break 1 stalk of lemon grass.

3. Saute ingredients 1. & 2. in some oil.

4. When aromatic, add in a glass of water.

5. When boiled, add in 4 - 5 pieces of 'Asam Gelugor' ( dried tamarind fruit).

6. When boiled, add in the boiled sayur keladi in as well as adding more water the same level as the sayur.

7. Let boiled and cooked for 15 minutes under moderate fire.

8. Add in the thinly sliced turmeric leaves.

9. Add salt and ajinomoto to taste.

10. Serve hot with rice.

Best eaten with fried salted fish and 'Sambal Belacan' !


Cheerio.

Salam Mak Isah..
Harap Mak Isah sehat2 selalu.
I mmg suka sayur keladi asam ni. My favourite masakan kampung. Terus lapar ni.. In Tganu masak asam keladi ni, they would put ikan hancur and lada hitam. Sedap jugak tapi kuahnya putih.
