Going Balmy on Macaroni – Today’s Special – Kerabu Macaroni

Yes, I’m going crazy with my Macaroni.  Today’s creation is Kerabu Macaroni or Macaroni Salad Asian Style.  I don’t know how it came to me to do this but I was preparing to cook it when suddenly I saw my garden and realized some of the herbs needed to be picked, so there you have it. Easy as hell tasty too and if you want more chilly go ahead and add it in.

I was worried that the macaroni would not absorb the flavors as it is made of durum wheat but I was wrong. The flavors infused so well.  I will try something like this again.  As usual I had no vegetables in my fridge.

 

 

 

 

The recipe:

Macaroni                                                 ½ cup – cooked till al dente

Daun Kesum – Vietnamese Mint  ½ cup

Basil Leaves                                            ½ cup

Lemon Grass                                          2  stalks – to be sliced

Onion                                                        1 small – to be minced

Sambal Belacan                                   about 2 tbsp

Lemon Juice                                        2 tbsp or a little more

Sugar                                                       a pinch or two

Salt                                                           to taste

(Clockwise) - Lemon Juice, Daun Kesum (Vietnamese Mint), Salt, Onions, Lemon Grass, Sugar, Basil Leaves, Sambal Belacan

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Method:

  1. Mix the sambal belacan, lemon juice, sugar and salt into a large bowl.
  2. Add in lemon grass and onions. Stir through.
  3. Add in macaroni.  Stir and taste. If you need to add in more sauce ingredients, do so now.
  4. Lastly add the leaves and stir.
  5. Eat immediately.

Note: You may cut down the leaves if you fine them a little spicy
