What would I give right now to be able to eat sayur manis rebung hutan (wild bamboo shoot?) mixed with daun asin-asin and sweet potatoes.... aarghh.... pure bliss... I love it so much and even DS learned to love this simple kampung dish. Last summer when we were back home, I introduced him to this hard to find in KL dish and he was hooked. Whenever we had the dish, he would only eat rice with the sayur and nothing else!!! I'm happy that DS love it, it's the only vegetable that he really love with the exception of soya bean stripes!!!
Well, I should thank my lucky star that I found the canned bamboo a few months ago. I never realised their existence before when we were in Amsterdam. I almost jumped with glee when I accidently came across it....yuhuuu.... one of my favourite!!! Of course I had to call dear Mak asking her how to make gulai rebung (wild bamboo curry). I never cook the dish when we were back home, we only ate it when we went back north. As for DH, he had never eaten it in his life!!! He only learned to eat the dish when we married and he too love it :D
Canned wild bamboo shoot (WBS)
So last week, we had WBS curry mixed with prawn again, together with simple grilled lamb for dinner.
The uncut tips
The grilled lamb with onion and tomatoes
And for the first time, DS ate the rice with only the shoots and a little bit of gravy and nothing else, not the prawn and not even the lamb !!! He missed the watery vegetable dish so much he...he...
