Sifting through my mother's falling-apart notebooks with recipes I came upon this one in my own hardwriting, and memories came flooding back. I got this from a Malay lady (Cape Muslim) when I was a young college student, and fascinated by the smells of the Bo-Kaap, the Malay Quarter of Cape Town. I do not guarantee this recipe, and would like feedback, should you try it. One has to smile at the amount of garlic she uses, and by no means do you have to use so much! I just did not want to change her ingredients. Do keep in mind that every Malay cook does her own interpretation of their aromatic dishes, so there are many variations!
