If you follow some of my previous posts, you could have noticed that I am a lemon grass & spices lover. I love its fragrant smell to bits and those dishes with lemon grass & spices are my all time favourite. One of my recent posts using lemon grass in the Iced lemon grass green tea recipe, gives you a glass of tea full of fragrant and goodness.
Since I have plenty of lemon grass laying in my fridge, I chanced upon another wonderful recipe from The Malaysian Women's Weekly FoodBook Issue 2 - Cooking Made Simple. Thus, I can make good use of my lemon grass and at the same time savour this Baba & Nyonya dish. If you would like to read more about Baba & Nyonya (the Malaysian peranakan) story, you may hop over here with a sweet treat.
