Posted by gill gill | 9:49 PM | | 5 comments »

Dear Floggers, i am going to post everything related to food, cooking & travel story in this blog from now on, rather then separate into 2 blogs (my second blog is feelthefood.blogspot.com). Heee.....have more topics to post mah.....lol

i will try to copy feelthefood.blogspot.com posted content to here. Stay tune!

This time im going to share Raw Ingredient with you. Have you seen "Perut Ikan" in raw before? Is not the fresh fish stomach digged out from the fish im going to share, but is Fish Stomach pickled in salt. Usually the perut ikan should cleanly wash and soak with salt for preservation, and kept it in a glass container. And rinse the salt before cooking.

The Fish Stomach is commonly found in one of the famous Nyonya Dish, called "Perut Ikan".


Perut Ikan just spooned out from the glass container....not wash yet....kinda smelly


Have to soak in the water and wash for several times.....


Never discovered they has beautiful visual marking! Did you see the white dots? is salt...


Oh....its transparent too


After many times of washing and cleaning process.....
See....like a cloth floating in the water...haa

Its string after cooked! No wonder we barely find Fish Stomach in the Perut Ikan dish!

    This looks like it's ready made. Can you suggest where to buy them? This would be nice to go in curries or soup.
