Chong Qing Seafood Steamboat (重庆海鲜火锅)


Photobucket

Today, in the late evening, we had steamboat for dinner again. It was my boi's idea and this time, we decided to try out the Chong Qing Seafood Hot Pot Seasoning "重庆海鲜火锅低". The ingredients used for the soup are Lotus seeds (莲米), Shiitake mushroom (香菇), Lilium (百合), ginger (姜), Red Dates (红枣), Barbary Wolfberry Fruits (枸杞), dried shrimps (虾米), and pepper (胡椒).

The seasoning smelled a bit like "balacan" (shrimp paste) and tasted a bit hot and sour. To us, it's a new flavor that we've never tried out before and fortunately, three of us were able to "handle" it pretty well.

Long Life Noodle has become my boi's favorite ever since he first tried it with Tomyam soup.

Papadam / Papadum is a thin Indian wafer which can be eaten as an appetizer or a snack and can be eaten with various toppings. The recipe tends to be popular among the mamak stalls in Malaysia, and I'll never let go of the chance of getting one for myself whenever I go to a mamak stall. But now, we're far away from Malaysia, that's why we have to make our own papadams.
