If you notice, I have been babbling about food since yesterday! Suddenly I feel like having a big feast, indulge in all those delicious food! Weekend is arriving, I couldnt wait to feast myself on good food...... LOL! Today, I would like to introduce a vegetable. It is called Terung Assam here.

I believe Terung Assam (Dayak Brinjal as spoken in Chinese Hokkien) is an indigenous vegetable of Sarawak! Sour in taste, it is usually cooked as soup! You will end up with a tasty, appetizing sourish soup that you would definitely love to pour into your rice! Other way to cook it is to stir fry it with anchovies and prawn paste. I never love sour dishes (I cant stand sour food, never been my best taste bud), but when mum cooks terung assam soup, I would not miss it for anything!
This photo was taken few weeks ago when I was back for dinner at my parents’ house! Mum cooked her usual terung assam soup. Sometimes she will add some curry-coated mackerel fishes in the soup, but most of the time, just a generous amount of brinjals to the soup is just enough to lift our appetite!!
