Aye' Pulut (Pulut Goreng)

Glutinous Rice Fritters

Aye' Pulut (Pulut Goreng)

This fritters is very well known within the Orang Ulu community. I saw this fritters sold at a popular Orang Ulu's restaurant in Miri but I never tried it. I got the recipe and method from my Kelabit ex-colleague. Its very simple to be made and since I like glutinous rice in any form of cooking, I took to it naturally. The fritters is crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside.

Ingredient :
(Serves 4 pax)
1 cup of glutinous rice (soak for few hours until brittle)
1/4 cup of sugar or less
Few tablespoons of water
Cooking oil for deep frying

Method :
1. Toss the glutinous rice and let it dry enough. You can use pestle & mortar, dry miller or food processor to make glutinous rice flour. Although it is not necessary to sieve,  I preferred to do so to ensure consistency (good mixture of fine and slightly coarse flour).
2. Mix in the sugar and toss evenly.
3. Add in few tablespoons of water and mix slowly to form a dough. Add in few more drop until it can be moulded.
4. Deep fry in medium low heat. Turn it over frequently to ensure even coloration

To replace glutinous rice, one can use a mixture of glutinous rice flour and rice flour with a ratio of 4:1.

Cili Hijau Goreng ang Pusuk

Fried Green Chillies with Anchovies

When I first came to Miri, I was very surprised to find that the young chillies (green chillies) were being treated as vegetables dish, and not as a heat element, condiment or garnish. It can be found at the tamu, ready-cut a longish-side and sold at RM2 per plate. I had an excess of big chillies that I planted at my backyard last month, so I harvest them young and made this.

This dish is very common among the Orang Ulu's, and can be found at their restaurants around Miri. This is a 3-ingredient dish that is so easy to be made, can be whipped out anytime.

Cooking Oil
Green Chillies (mild type preferred)

Method :
1. Wash anchovies and drain.
2. Cut onion and green chillies. In my photo I cut it short -sideways. Deseed if needed.
3. Heat up oil and fried anchovies until crispy. Put aside.
4. Using the same oil, saute onion until fragrant. Move to one side of the wok.
5. Add in chillies. Saute until fragrant and soften. Toss with onion evenly.
6. Turn off heat. Add the anchovies in the wok and toss lightly.
7. Serve.
