I saw a dish with a similar name at a food hawker at one of those HDBs behind SATA Ang Mo Kio and it looked yummy. So I decided to cook it a few weeks after that. That’s when we were still in Singapore 🙂
I find the taste ok and acceptable. But Frederick didn’t like it. I can still vividly remember the weird expression on Frederick’s face when he tasted the dish. Shocked. Bewildered. It’s like he ate a gruesome food 🙁 He actually doesn’t know how to react without disappointing me (evil grin) That’s why we only finished a small portion of the soup and it stayed in the fridge for over a week until he finally decided to just fry the remaining milkfish 🙂
This dish may look bad but I am posting my recipe anyway 🙂 who knows, somebody might end up liking it 🙂 Using apple in a soup dish is actually not a bad idea you know. But my husband warned me not to be cooking similar dishes when I am in Tabuk coz I might not like what their reactions would be.
