There are a few meanings to this word in Malay. One of it is HONEY, produced by the bees and most enjoyed by Winnie The Pooh. Hahaha.. just kidding. All of us likes honey and it seems, honey contributes something towards health care. If you've been following my fotopages when I first started, then you surely have read the goodness of "Cinnamon and Honey" in there.
Another meaning is second or maybe third or fourth
Why am I writing about madu today? It's because I wanted to post this dish that I had tried a couple of days ago. Dug it out from Ummi's 'garden'. Ummi's garden is full of juicy stuffs, always ready to be plucked! Hahaha... Thanks Ummi and Kak Mon for this lovely prawn recipe. Thousand apologies if the photo doesn't do justice to your recipe, but that's the best that I can do.... at the moment...... Allow me to translate (though with broken English... hahaha) the recipe and re-post it here so that hopefully, many more will be able to try it....
