Beef Dalca

Oh me oh my, I really took my own sweet time to update on the 'partner' of my Nasi Bukhari that day. Thousand apologies to everyone. To say that I am very busy, I don't think so because I still have time to play the Bubble Game at the end of this page! Hahaha... I always love to play games like these. Other than Bubbles, I love to play Tetris and Doctor Mario!

I first started to like these sort of games when hubby brought home the Brick Game thingy. That time, I was like 7 months pregnant with Fatin. I really got carried away playing and the game will always be by my side. Hahaha... you guys must be saying, no wonder the kids are addicted to games. But mind you, the one who is addicted to PSP, PS3 and of it's kind is Syahmi, not Fatin! So the blame is not on me! Hahahaha....

Anyway, to cut short my nonsense, let me just post the recipe that I cooked to go with the Nasi Bukhari. Whether it's the right combination or not, one thing for sure, both the rice and the gravy are no longer to be seen! Thank you Kak Liza for the lovely recipe of Dalca. I made a slight adjustment to the recipe. I used beef instead of mutton. To get a better and mouthwatering photo of this dish, you can buy Kak Liza's SENANGNYA MEMASAK KAMBING (pages 8 and 9) from the nearest MPH or you can contact directly to Kak Liza. I am sure she'll be more than willing to entertain you....
