Pecel or Pecal in Malaysia is a traditional Javanese food, a type of vegetable salad with peanut gravy, it is very nutritious and ideal for snacks and breakfast.
You can toss in some Tofu，boiled egg and Tempeh to make it high in protein, a good way to incorporate more greens into your diet.
Pecel （印尼语) 或 Pecal （马来语）是一款淋上花生酱的印尼/马来沙拉，非常美味营养，加上水煮蛋、炸酥的丹贝和豆腐干，就是一款高蛋白，高纤维的美食了。

My son A loves fruits. His favourite snacks is fruit leather or Fruit snacks. I used to buy organic fruit snacks from the store. He goes through them so fast that it got me worried that he will be fructose overdose sometimes.
Some friends came home yesterday with their kids yesterday, I made a big fruit bowl for the kids and was left with about 1/3 of it. Since it was close to bedtime and none of us want more fruit. I blended them into a thick paste and place it into the oven to bake at low temperature.
We have got ourselves fruit leather in the morning!

My son A is a big fan of Peaches, he will ask for it every so often, even when peaches are out of season. It goes without saying that peaches are always in sight at home during its season!
I brought home some sweet juicy peaches from the market and decided to make this delicious limeade, a perfect drink for summer afternoon!

This spiced fried chicken was made last weekend to go with some steamed rice and lentil soup, my all time favorite combination. It is normally served back home with Nasi minyak or Nasi Lemak.
I made this mainly for me, hubby tasted it and loved it. I ended up sharing a little more than half of my yummy fried chicken with him.

My mum used to make this long bean rice back home, there are similar dishes made with pumpkin, Chinese mustard (Gai Choy) and yam.
It is prepared almost like Spanish Paella, the rice is cooked together with ingredients and seasoning, in a pot/wok and later simmer to perfection.
It is simply irresistible, every spoon of it is a charm!

Nasi minyak is synonymous with wedding for most Malay back home, it is one of the main dishes served at the wedding reception. I used to look forward to a Malay wedding to enjoy the feast when I was young.
Malay wedding reception is a true spirit of "Gotong royong" (Communal work), most people in the village (Kampung) gathered together to share the tasks of cooking/preparing for a reception.
Every village/kampung has its own team of cooks for such occasion, in other word, every village has their own specialty that passes down generation after generation.
I made Nasi minyak last weekend for a gathering to go with my Malaysian mutton curry, Ayam Goreng Berempah and Achar Timun, everyone enjoys it very much, it was a perfect meal!
马来西亚的乡村(Kampung)有个很特别的文化叫“Gotong royong"。 就是村子里的人集合在一起同心协力地去做一件事的意思。村里的婚宴一般都是村民们集合一起共同完成的，每个村子都有自己的婚宴团队，专门负责婚宴煮食和安排。换句话说，每个村子的婚宴美食都是很独特的哦！
