Kacang Pool! Yes, hubs wrote on my fb wall asking for this yesterday. He was driving back to KL from Ayer Baloi with Muhammad, Umar and Ibraheem. I had just finished making macarons, 2 batches cracked with feet...the weather was not healping, and I was really trying despite the damp and humid air!
Don't know why this soup/stew, sort of is called Kacang Pool...I gather it's due to the fact that you jumble up a few types of means to make this dish. My first encounter with this delicious dish was at my MIL's late brother's house during Raya, a few years back...yup at Pak Cik Aman's house.... and here's his recipe....
1 medium onion
5 cloves garlic
2 inches ginger, pound all this ingredients.
2 tbsp rempah Khurma Adabi, I used rempah Sup, left mine with the bag in Pasar Kecil Melawati, huhuhu
2 tbsp rempah Beryani, I used Haji Senan's....lucky there was a packet in my fridge, brought by MIL!
about 4 cans of beans in salted water, I used kidney bean, chic peas, green peas and baked beans.
1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp ghee...teeheee!
300g minced meat, I used fresh minced beef from Pasar Tani
1. Heat oil, sautee onion, ginger, garlic paste till fragrant.
2.Add the beryani and khurma spices that you have mixed into a paste, fry intil fragrant.
3. Add the minced beef, fry until all the juices dried up.
4.Add all the beans together with water.
5.Add salt to taste, let simmer, and remove from fire.
Best served with bread, sunny side up, fresh lemon juice, sliced green chillies and melted ghee...teeheee!
