Sunday is visit your mom's day.  And I did not come empty-handed.  I volunteered to cook for the family.   My brothers will be home.  So I hope to finish cooking early and head to ibu's house.  

Off all the 4 days of fasting, I think sunday I ate the most.  Apart from the sabsuka, there's sardine puff from Shakilah's family, ibu fried some chicken drumlets and chicken seaweed.  There's kuihs and I manage to make cincau drink.  So rajin right.  Not all the time hor.

Anyway sabsuka is a repeated recipe.  I have cooked this so many time and each time I will improvise according to my guest.

Cooking we must ~Yoda
It's the first weekend of the fasting month. And MIL was at home so we break fast at home lah. Since the other days we broke fast at the mosque nearby.  

Ask the Mister what he wants to eat and he said anything to eat with bread.  How simple! Woke up early to prep and started cooking after asar.  The taste was quite mile no kick.  Maklumlah puasa tak boleh rasa =p.

But can better if can taste while cooking I would have alter the flavour lah.  I did some Google-ing and I like Tiffinbiru's recipes. Easy and hassle free though I made some changes to the recipe to suit may laziness hahaha.

5 potatoes
Black pepper
