seri8888: *In my last recipe just before smilingkiss potatoe soup, l noticed that the anchovies used in South East Asian dishes are different from the anchovies in Europe dishes, like in Italian dish such as pizza.
They might both be from Engraulidae family but there are 20 known different species of Engraulidae aka anchovy.
While the Italian anchovies are usually wet, either fresh or preserved in oil and salt, Asian usually sun dried theirs and when fried they are chrispy like chips
Malay/Indonesia fried anchovies
The fried anchovies here are also much bigger compared to the first video
seri8888: Hey fellows wireclub adventurous, and not so adventurous cooks
I'm kinda lazy to try major potatoes recipes from India and China the two big Asian countries literally.
I am keen to try watermelon soup from SBS cooking show a few years back. I could not find the original recipe, so I kinda make up my own from whatever I could remembered from the show, which is not much at all, so almost all made up
The original recipe was using prawns base broth but I'm using chicken. Later I found out on YouTube something very close to what I cooked, here it is
Watermelon Rind Soup
- 350g chicken bones (video use chicken necks, I used any boney bits like Chicken carcass)
- 600-800g watermelon rind
- 4 cups water
- Salt (to taste)
- Black pepper (to taste)
Boil chicken add some fragrance herbs, ginger, lemon grass etc or just add salt and pepper. Cooks for about an hour more or less
Scoup out any grit that was on the top. Switch off, pick out the chicken and strain the soup.
You can skip this by buying ready made chicken stock e.g Campbell's Real Chicken Liquid Stock
Adds watermelon rinds that was already cut into small size and add the shredder cooked chicken meat
Cook further 15 - 30 minutes till rinds cooks
smilingkiss: in the Philippines we have anchovy its called dilis and we fried them and use it for sour fish soup
seri8888: In Malaysia, the Malay word for anchovy is Bilis, Ikan Bilis, ikan is fish and Biliss the name of the fish
smilingkiss: yes I\ went to Singapore they have Ikan bilis its fried anchovy with chili paste and fried peanuts
