Singgang Daging (Boiled Beef with Herbs)
This is one of the Kelantan's cuisine, a side dish to be eaten with rice. It has nice aroma and very light and more delicious when you eat it along with budu (anchovies paste). But I dont have budu here so I made sambal belacan (chilies blended with shrimp paste and a bit of tamarind juice) instead.
1/2 kg beef -cut into small pieces
8 shallots - finely sliced
5 cloves of garlic - finely sliced
2 inch ginger -finely sliced
1.5 inch galanga (lengkuas) -finely sliced
1 tbs coriander - lightly grounded
6 pieces of dried chilies - cut into small length and soak in hot water
1 piece of asam gelugor (sour slice)
A bit of sugar ( I used gula melaka)
A bit salt
Simmer all ingredients, except sugar and salt in a pot until the beef is tender. Add sugar and salt to taste.
