Acar Kunyit Ikan

I swear I have never in my life 
done so much slicing and shredding at one go!
And to add to the misery, 
the recipe says FINELY slice & shred!!!!
*SLAP FOREHEAD*

The smart ass in me wanted to do things the lazy way!
Got my handy food processor out...
Snickering to myself, thinking how much precious time 
I would be saving using "technology"!!!!
I was so wrong about that!

This is my so call SHREDDED GINGER from the food processor!
I nearly died looking at it!

Needless to say, I had to get my lazy ass out and get more ginger!!
And start all over from square one!!
ARRGH!!

Finally, the nicely shredded ginger!

I know you would hardly believe 
the next statement I am going to make.....
I spend at least 3 hours slicing and shredding the ginger & garlic!

My precious 3 hours effort!

Thank GOD I still have my 10 fingers after all the battling knife work!!

The final product before adding in the acar sauce....

Hopefully, it will taste as good as it looks!

Note: My hands & fingers are now tinted 
with a bright funky shade of yellow from the turmeric!!
*shakes head*
