Last Sunday I thought I were going to have a heart failure (or seizure). Not a good experience for me.
My Foochow confinement lady been first time cooks kacangma was not so experienced and experimental in cooking this dish. Usually I would use about 1-2 rice bowls of white wine and add water to my kacangma. But for confinement, kacangma must be purely wine. No water added.
So last Sunday she cooked a whole kampung chicken for kacangma and used up one bottle of wine. Her logic is not enough soup if use half or so. Alcohol evaporated when heated up so ended up less soup in kacangma. But my CL been adventurous, pour the whole bottle and the wine reduced to 1/3 after done.
I did not know she used up so much into my kacangma. After less than 20minutes after meal I felt funny. Heart beat fast, head pounding and I felt warm and light-headed. It lasted for about 30 minutes or longer. I do not remember how long I lied on the bed! I should take picture of myself then. All red. Red-faced that is!
Been curious I asked her that night. And I almost fainted when she told me she used 1 bottle of white wine! Damn! Now I know how been drunk feel like. *wink*
