Dinner Few Days Back

Trying to get away from assignment, I decided to cook a simple meal. My housemates all went out for dinner and I was thinking... "Hmm...It's time for cooking experiment."

Two dishes for one person.

I know it's a bit too much for a person's dinner. But, I just couldn't estimate! :P I cooked Satay Chicken (instant sauce bought from the supermarket) and Ikan Bilis with Onions.

Satay Chicken.

It looks delicious but actually it's not as good as I think. Maybe I didn't use more time to marinate the chicken. That's why it turned out to be not that good. Somemore, it's just instant sauce which has nothing to boast about.

Ikan Bilis with Onions, my mama's invention.

This simple dish is one of my mama's invention. I don't know if anyone out there has made this before, but for sure, my mama did. It's just a very good combination I would say. When ikan bilis, onions, dark soya sauce and sugar are mixed together, the aroma and the taste are just simply marvellous.

The cooking receipe:
1) Pour a spoonful of oil into the pan and heat it.
2) When the oil is hot enough, add in onions and fry for 1 minute.
3) Add in ikan bilis and fry until it's golden brown (duration depends on the amount of ikan bilis or at your own preference).
4) Add in a pinch of salt, a pinch of pepper, a tablespoon of sugar and a tablespoon of dark soy sauce (all at your own preference).
5) Fry and stir for about 1 and a half minutes.
6) Serve it while hot!

P/s: Do not fry the ikan bilis for too long after sugar and dark soy sauce are added. You might spoil the dish if you do so!

Try it if you are an ikan bilis' lover. Even if you are not, give it a shoot. I'm sure you will like this. :)
