Elyani's lunch today

Hi all, I haven't posted in a while but have been reading everyone's blogs regularly. My menu this week is all veggies, fruits and no sweet treats in between. It is hard to stay discipline sometimes as I craved for a bit of "sinful foods" like a slice of tiramisu cake, dark chocolate, pizza or other local savory snacks once in a while. It takes awhile for the cravings to change to more healthy foods once you start eating those, but I'm glad I can control myself from those sniffing urges! And it works to decrease my endo pains a bit.

My lunch today comprise of Urap Sayuran (steamed mixed veggies tossed with spicy grated coconut) and Deep Fried Oyster Mushrooms. This is one of my favorite dishes. Sometimes with a lunch like this, I pretend that I'm a rabbit! The secret of making urap sayuran is by using a fresh young coconut. I added some more chilis and lime leaves because that really stimulate the senses and wake you up.

Elyani, what are the orange and white things in the veggies? At first, the orange thing was tuna flakes.

Oh, please tell G I received the money order this week.

@Belle : the orange thing was not tuna flakes. It was grated coconut blended with spices (red hot chili, garlic, shallot, shrimp paste). The white thingies there are bean sprouts and chayotes (labu siam in Indonesian language). Please see the pic here :

@Mbak Sima, terima kasih juga bersedia mampir kesini. Gambar yg kedua adalah Jamur Tiram Goreng. Nyontek resep dari majalah Sedap, adonan jamur ini menggunakan campuran tepung beras dan tepung sagu. Menurut saya sih lebih enak komposisi tepung beras dan tepung terigu.
