Kerabu Timun (Kerabu Cucumber)

Want to do a easy, quick, appetizing dish ? 

I am dedicating this dish to my friend who runs a food outlet, and yet no time to cook for her own food,...sounds weird right !

Well, it's a western kitchen, so can't eat steaks all the time and just for 2 or 3 persons can't cook 3 or 4 dishes at one go...also at times you tend to run out of ideas. I always believe any wonderful dish can be just something you can grab from the kitchen or the garden. 

What dish can be appealing and mouth watering ?...can I say anything spicy and sourish !

Check this...only 10 min and no hassle !

Get a cucumber, peel off the skin, discard the seeds, chop an onion, coriander leaves, kaffir lime leaves, some mint leaves and chillies. Sprinkle some salt, sugar, lime juice and fish sauce. Mix all the ingredients.

Done ! Refreshing and appetizing ! 

Ain't that simple ?

Serving for 2paxs.

300g Cucumber (peeled skin and discards the seeds)
80g Onion (chopped)
6pcs Kaffir Lime Leaves (cut finely)
5g Coriander Leaves (cut finely)
5g Mint Leaves (cut finely)
1/2 tsp Salt (to taste)

Thailand...Places !...Food !

continue...Bangkok ! Eat your way through...

The thing I like best about Bangkok is, anyway and everywhere you want have a simple noodle soup...it will never disappoint you ! Be it in the restaurants, food courts, coffee shops or just even just a stall at the road side...it always has the right taste !

Look at this noodle soup. Simple ! Just noodles, pork slice, balls, water convolvulus and bean sprouts, and yet it's so appetizing. Why ???

If you ask the locals, and this is what The Thai will tell you; The secret of tasty noodle soup seems to have the balance of Spicy + Sour + Sweet + Salty...the harmonies of taste !

How do you find that ? The secret lies in the condiment set ! The Chilli Flakes, Lime Juice, Sugar and Fish Sauce. So the next time you have any Thai noodles, throw everything in. 

Want to try all the noodles in one place ?...proceed to Ma Boon Khrong shopping mall in Bangkok. You can find all the food under one roof. Check out what I had the whole day...
