Cook with Ethan: Bendi Goreng Bawang Belacan

After all the cooking videos I did for Ayden, I think it is only fair to have one for Ethan too.

That boy has been so occupied with school, homework, co-coriculum and more that I hardly have time to speak to him on weekdays :cry:

Just a blink of an eye, Ethan is already 9 going to be 10 this year. He is growing up fast before my very eyes so I better take more pictures and videos of him before he leaves home for college or something :roll:

Will he allow me to record him cook is another question :lol:

But luck is on my side as that boy happily agrees to let me record him cook one of our favourite dish -> Stir-fried Ladies Finger with Shrimp Paste

Bendi Bawang Belacan

The ingredients needed are:
Okra (Ladies Fingers)
Red Chili
Shrimp Paste

Cooking Tip:

I covered the mortar with plastic leaving a hole just enough for the pestle to go through so that the chili and shallots don’t get into his eyes when he pounds the ingredients. 

Watch this video to see how to stir-fry ladies fingers with shrimp paste.

    Eeeekkkkkkk!!!! No more for me! Had an overdose when my 10 plants starting “fruiting” – now I would not mind if I never get to eat it ever again.

    That plate looks really good though, good job, Ethan. Takes after your grandma, eh? And not your mum. Muahahahahaha!!!!!

    Good that Ethan is willing to learn how to cook. Is the lady’s fingers his favourite vegetable ?

    My favourite. Next time I must “borrow” your boys and cook for me. Hehe.

    you are a modern and excellent mother to teach both your boys how to cook. in the future, their wives will thank you for this.

    Great for boys to learn to cook young.It will save them a bundle when they get to Uni overseas etc.
    By the time I was 10, i would cook breakfast for my family of 7 in Mumbai. made the fluffiest of omelettes
