Bubur Lambuk 马来斋戒月肉粥

Last year, we had Bubur Lambuk ( Malay porridge that served during Ramadan (fasting month) for the first time. It was given free by the staff of a supermarket while we were shopping there. My kids simply love this porridge. They even requested for second serving.

When i posted this at my Instagram account, a reader said it was her first time seeing squid added into bubur Lambuk, usually with chicken or beef. Ya, i added some squid because i cooked based on what we tasted earlier ^_^ 

The recipe that i made reference did add some preserved sweet radish (Chay Poh) into this porridge. It is a brilliant idea as Chay Poh gave mild sweetness to the porridge. My kids said this porridge tasted exactly like that one they tried earlier, all gave thumbs up!
