Hairy Cucumber and Fish Porridge

Sometimes I really run out of idea on what to cook for Sarah. Therefore, when I go for grocery shopping, I will see what are the vegetables which I like to eat, then I will used it as the ingredient for Sarah’s menu.

I like hairy cucumber very much; normally it is for cooking soup. So this time I will used it as the main ingredient for the porridge. I also added some fish into it.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OUTCOME:

Erm…I think the hairy cucumber is better to be cooked with soup than porridge, because it does not bring much flavour to the meal. It turned out the porridge looked and taste a bit plain.

Nevertheless with some marmite it still do the trick, Sarah can finish the porridge at last.

I love hairy cucumber stir fry with dried prawn. I bought one hairy cucumber for Jonathan's porridge last weekend but still lying in the fridge. If can't think of how to cook, I shall try your recipe.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Julie - I am sure hairy cucumber with prawn taste good. I will try this recipe the next time.
- Julie, if you wanna try my recipe, you may wish to change the fish meat to some other meat? Coz I am afraid Jonathan doesn't like the fishy taste of it.

Fussy Mum - O, such a good idea from you. I did not know hairy cucumber can cooked with red dates and meat. Normally I will cook it with ikan bilis.
Will try it next time.
