One day, my brother just whispered to me..I miss this dish..miss mum's it stays in my head for a while until I really was in the cooking mood again..( the mood has long been brooding because my kids do not eat much nowadays..yeahhh everyone's dieting except me :(
I just invited him over for Sunday lunch with the whole family..I felt mighty relieved that everyone enjoyed the food. 

Ayam masak bunga kincam ni is a long time family favorite. My mak menakan called it "Lauk2 Gang Simpang Kuala". Ahaa my hometown and kampong for a long while till both my parents passed and we find it difficult to maintain.
Anyway, this lauk is normally Raya morning food together with the ketupats and gulai daging. Arwah mother will normally cook Nasi tomato to go with it too..sumptious food to me..My mum was really a good cook so as the rest of the mums of her times as most of the time was spend eating at home not like nowadays. I am really in awe of the mums then, good in cooking all sorts of lauks, kuehs and very concern about keeping the heritage food in tact and taught to us the daughters..hahaha not this one who really was never interested at all..what a shame :(
I, for one, learned this because I like to eat this dish..especially the dried lily flowers were the best in this dish.

Here is the recipe

Masak Itik

Another "Gang Simpang Kuala" dish. Not easily done and not easily forgotten after u have tried it...I have not actually perfected the recipe simply because I forgot what are the original ingredients to this dish. I have made them countless time years ago when my arwah Mak is till around but never really bother because she was around to supervise the makings of this kills me sometimes when I cannot perfect the taste of masak itik, which forms an important part of my young life.

Masak Itik is actually not cook with a duck but a chicken..I guess my arwah Grandmother made them using duck because ducks are tougher and have fats which can stand long cooking techniques..and also we don't eat ducks.
