Recipe: Daging Lelawar

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a recipe on here. Like many out there, I rarely know what to prepare for dinner. Especially now that I am more broke as frack than ever, I usually have to go by whatever it is that we have laying about in the kitchen. But just because your fridge is almost empty doesn’t mean you cannot prepare a decent meal.

Today I was struggling with the thought of preparing something with some  minced meat and coconut milk. And that’s when I stumbled upon this lovely and easy-to-make Indonesian recipe from my mother’s cook book.

Enjoy and selamat makan! 😉
