Deep fried Daun kaduk ( Wild Betel Leaf)


Deep fry Daun Kaduk (Wild Betel leaves) can be tasted so aromatic, and dip it with this Tomato & Shallots dipping sauce, they are just so perfect. My kids who are not fancy on eating leaf ^_^ also eaten until non-stop.




I was imitated this special and nice tomato & shallot dipping sauce from a dish we taken during last Bangkok trip. The dish we ordered was fried kangkung to dip with this dipping sauce..

It looks delicious!! I've eaten leaves before but never tried deep fried ones. I love the leaf shape dish that you served these betel leaves with as well, so lovely!!

Esther Lau said...

Finally I know what daun kaduk is after my mum told me about it and she planted a lot now in the backyard :)

Chef and Sommelier said...

Hi Sis! The sauce looks really interesting... think it would go well with lots of food.

I love this thai dish (Mieng Kham) that uses Betel leaves to wrap ingredients like peanuts, chili, lime, dried shrimps as sauce... very appetizing starter!

This leaf is also the main ingredient for Thai snack, "miang khum". I love it to bits, but I didn't know we can grow it in our backyard.

This is awesome, I've actually eaten this before in a restaurant but can't remember where. But I remember it was very crisp and fragrant, yum! Thanks for showing us this Sonia!

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

I would love to taste this. Some ingredients (probably this one included) can be hard to find in the US. It's probably easier if I go to Malaysia and enjoy the food... especially at your home. Hehehehe. :D

Siew said...

Sonia, you are indeed a great cook, innovative and creative! next time I go back I would like to order this dish, ok? hehehe.... :)
