Looks yummy siah!

Why no keropoh and balacan?
Didnt think of that at all - didnt fry keropoh at home for more than 25 years ...last was frying the prawn keropok from Batam trip bah

Not really a balachan person - tho got several bottles of balachan around ....

Was following this recipe that mentioned the black soy sauce with chilli only ...

Clearing freezer space for next batch of delivery so need to use up my last pack of Oxtails ....

decided on Sup Buntut so bought missing ingredients needed for it this morning

First thing was to remove the fat from the oxtails then boil cleaned oxtails with 2+ litres of water for some 2-3 hours with some bay leaves till tender - I used the heavy SS pressure pot without using the pressure function




Fish Soup lunch


Prepped the other ingredients in the meantime - carrot potato tomato leek onion
Instead of using the mortar pestle I used the garlic mincer-cruncher to mince the garlic shallots ginger onion into a near-paste before frying with crushed peppercorns star anise cinnamon stick coriander seeds ....

Strained the broth before putting back into cleaned pot with oxtails + fried paste + carrot potato leek onion etc ... +.seasoning

Prepped the fried shallot flakes too (new batch)



Garnishings - tomato coriander spring onion calamansi (as market didn't have the Thai limes) red chillis
Thought you are jobless and no money.

the soup like too little
Mom scolded me "Too Much Water for 2 pax"
She likes cooking thick-sweet soups just enough for 2 Bowls !

I think Just Nice there
Enough leftover for another meal tomorrow - + 2 pcs oxtails there

If put Too Much Water - soup gets Too DILUTED & Not as 'sweet = sedap"

Nicely 'balanced' I think ....

1) Slight twist in 'job' status

Due to mom's dementia & global recession etc etc etc
Changed from 'jobless' to 'might as well opt for permanent (early) retirement' as only need to wait less than 3-years before I can get my Age 65 CPF Monthly Sums ....

2) NOT exactly no money now - just no Job Income as not working

Got gov's $600 ang pows etc ...

ALSO recent months mom has FINALLY 'surrendered fiscal control as such' and I have been the one 'dispensing her with her Spending $$ periodically & buying some needed foods household stuff etc (those that mom can't/won't get etc) whether personally or more conveniently thru' online [esp with convenient deliveries like the Rice Frozen Seafood Meat Ready Meals etc]
- as mom now cannot 'remember the important things etc' and I have to Take Charge as such at her request

In mom's saner moments - like earlier when she was cooking the Egg Tomato item
She said the Coconut Oil left not much & asked me to buy another bottle soon
I would ask for $$ Re-imbursement before but now no need for me to do so as I have some $$ Control now

Why not ?

Pork Ribs + Carrot + Potato + Leek-Onion + ???? other veg etc
{ABC Type Soups - can use/add Corn or other stuff Buddha Palm etc
Beans or Lentils - Cranberry Peanut Red (Kidney) Beans etc ???}

Mom in the past like cooking Pork Rib Soup with just Carrot & Cabbage !


But maybe instead of the Spice Paste combo + bay leaves for flavouring (gamey) beef

For Pork Ribs - we usually use Dried Scallop/Dried Flatfish/(Dried Mak Yee for Lotus Root with Chicken Feet Peanuts etc) instead ????

I'm NOT of that standard lah ....
(AND I'm also Lazy Bones ...)

Well I'm NOT sure I "LIKE" cooking as such
As hate being in a HOT kitchen ....

Right now I cook more out of NO CHOICE for more/some LC Low Carb? items AND also bc mom REFUSES to cook nowadays [only on her Good Days she might cook an item like tonight & the last curry [after I'd already prepped everything for her]

Now I'm very comfortable with my current state of things too
(esp as I have now some $$ control over household spending etc etc)
Life is fine ... why rock the boat etc ??

Actually if you were to go into my Home Cooking thread
I was approached to do something like that in 2017
There was a post from (?? App-Maker) in the early pages on that
