BUBUR MANADO | MANADONESE VEGETABLE PORRIDGE

Yum



A few weeks ago when browsing the freezer section in the chinese winkel in Eindhoven, I saw dried salted anchovies! I don't know if I have missed it all these years or they just came in the store but what the fudge?! I'm going to make bubur manado! I was so happy when I found them. After taking the photos and finally enjoying the food, I couldn't help but to have a big smile in my face. I finally made bubur manado! 
This dish hold such a special place in my heart. When I was little I had such a struggle eating this, probably because it only consists of veggies. As I grew older, I could not wait for Sunday lunch, my Mam makes them on Sundays and we'd enjoy it after church. I don't know if it's pretty common in manadonese family to eat bubur manado on Sundays, but from what I remember whenever I visit my extended family on Sundays, we always ended up eating bubur manado. You always serve bubur manado with a side of sambal roa and fried fish. Or, if you have extra leftovers of proteins like babi rica
