Pernah makan 'Cendawan Kelapa Sawit' ini? Rasa nya tidak? :)
Tumis Cendawan Kelapa Sawit
Hubby often brings home this mushrooms when he comes back from driving off stations. For him, off station means he drives up to Bakong, Niah, Bekenu, Kampung Iran or Selangau sending supply of fresh chickens for his Company.
Now these mushrooms can only be found around these areas. These that I cooked, he bought from the market in Bekenu. Mushrooms in Bahasa Melayu is 'Cendawan', whereas Mak isah and the locals here called them 'Kulat'.
Kulat-kulat ini diambil dari hasil komposit atau hampas kelapa sawit yang tidak digunakan. We have a lot of 'Kelapa Sawit Plantations' in those areas that I have mentioned above. So what the locals did was put together the hampas kelapa sawit yang telah dibuang & hasil komposit (wasteproducts) in one area, let it wet and covered with a plastic sheet. After 5 days, the plastic sheet was taken away and so to let the mushrooms to appear and grow.
The locals picked these mushrooms and sell them at the market with their other products like vegetables or local rice.
At first Mak isah don't know how to cook these mushroom in the best way. After a couple of trying, it's really very simple.
Cook it with hot cili padi and eat it as soon as it's cooked.
To Cook :-
1. Wash the mushrooms quickly and let it drip dry in a sieve.
2. Ground 3 - 4 hot cili padi, 2 garlic and 1 small shallot.
3. Saute ingredients no. 2 in hot cooking oil.
4. When aromatic, add in the mushrooms.
5. As soon as cooked, add salt & ajinomoto to taste.
Eat it hot with rice and other dishes.
