Hola my lovely readers!

As I promised on my FB page, here's the recipe for an easy one pot chicken dish! Heeeee heeee...simple one of course!!! :=)

Turmeric powder plays the vital role for this recipe and you may also substitute chicken with prawn, squid or even with baby potatoes/ tofu for vegetarians. If you are a chicken liver + gizzard lover, then give it a shout!

As for the vegetables, you can go for french beans, cauliflower, baby corn etc etc....

Thannisaar - Guest Post by Sharmila

Guest Posting @ Love2cook Malaysia is back after a hiatus! This time, it's not from a blogger but a fellow reader of mine, Ms Sharmila. We got to know on FB after she tried one of my recipes. I've always welcomed non-bloggers to send me their signature recipes and it's an honour for me to feature my readers and their recipes in my little space here. Without them, I'm no one in the blogosphere.

Few weeks back, Sharmila tried my Spicy Caramel Chicken recipe and sent me the pics together with her Thannisaar and many readers asked for the recipe. I wanted to ask my Mom as I never made it on my own before. When Sharmila offered to share her recipe with my readers, I couldn't say no! And I will never say no! I really admire her kind heart and willingness to share the recipe with us, thus I invited her to make a guest post in my space, which she readily accepted. That's the spirit!!!

For the very first time, a non-blogger is sharing her recipe on Love2cook Malaysia. …

Asam Pedas Ikan Tenggiri (Mackerel in Spicy Sour Gravy)

Apologize for my late post on this delicious Asam Pedas. It's one of my family's favourites. We used to have this a Taste Good Restaurant in Bandar Puteri Puchong. There, the whole fish is marinated with flour and crispy fried prior to adding the spicy and sour gravy.

Here, I just used mackerel blocks, rubbed with little turmeric powder and salt. Fry them before making the gravy.

Let's check it out!

Oh, before that! This recipe was inspired from none other than En Adnan Ibrahim a.k.a Che Mat Gebu a.k.a CMG's blog….TIFFINBIRU.

He has a long list of Asam Pedas recipes in his space. Do check them out too! Thank you CMG for giving me an idea on how to make this irresistible dish. I used whatever ingredients I could get, couldn't find the torch ginger bud (bunga kantan) though.

This was my first attempt…and my family loved it a lot! I slightly modified the recipe to suit our taste buds. Yummy Yummo!!! :)
