This recipe has a long history in our family, passed down through five generations. It was my great, great Grand Mama's favourite recipe to cook for her family. In 1920 she came to Cambodia, married, had 5 children and started an import/export business, and still found time to make dishes like this to nourish and care for her family. This dish is made with fresh coconut juice, pork belly, boiled egg, shiitake, potato and carrot. My kids love it because it has everything they love in one warming bowl. Mum always said cooking this dish was nothing secret, the only thing to make it more delicious was when you cooked your with your heart and soul.
Ingredients: Fresh coconut juice , pork belly, shiitake mushroom, potato, carrot, egg, palm sugar, soy sauce, salt, star anise, black pepper, garlic
Contains: Eggs, Soybeans and soybean products (eg Miso, soy milk etc), Tree nuts and tree nut products other than coconut from the fruit of the palm
Hi, I'm Iris!
I'm originally from Cambodia. My first memory of connecting with food was when I was little and my mum was always busy in her shop, so she left the house work and cooking to me. As the eldest child in the family, I had to learn to cook and did the shopping as guided by mum. I remember I learnt to cook my first curry chicken when I was just 12 years old.
