My Big Bowl

Here's my big bowl of homecooked ginger & sesame oil kidney and liver soup. They say preggers cannot eat so much liver, as too much Vitamin A can harm the baby, but, I could not resist the temptation when I think of pork kidney & liver. Thus, I asked my MIL to buy me some kidney & liver from the market so that I can make my favourite bowl of ginger & sesame oil goodness.


My recipe is simple. Wash well your innards. Then ginger and garlic (optional) sauteed in sesame oil. Add water (you don't need chicken stock). Add some oyster sauce, soya sauce, that's it. Let it simmer, then off the fire. Yes, off the fire, then chuck in the kidney and liver. Make sure they don't over cook. Remove pot from the stove, the innards will continue to cook inside, don't worry.

They also say preggers cannot eat so much tuna. But I have been eating tuna sandwiches every morning for the past 3 weeks. Hmmmmm. I have been also drinking old cucumber soup, bitter gourd soup and lots of icy drinks and rock sugar too. Maybe cincai already, 3rd pregnancy ma.

Ok, time to control my diet. Bye.

  4. What a happy and lucky day to see your blog updates!!! You should post often please as this blogsphere is turning into a real morgue with so many missing bloggers.

    What a greedy mama to eat everything! I can never get pregnant so I wouldn't know how to advise you anything here. I would say just eat everything moderately lah, both mummy & baby will be happy!

    I will come back again tomorrow to see your new post!!

    1. Wah, tomorrow ahh? Not so fast la, haha.. But I know you are getting faster and faster-er now.. Yeah, I also told myself, everything in moderation ok kua..

      They say cannot eat so much tuna due to the mercury.
      No old cucumber soup or bitter gourd soup or any "kua" veggies coz it's "liang"..
      No half boiled eggs due to the bacteria, yada yada..

      But I still eat 4 half-boiled eggs every weekend LOL...

  6. Hahaha, preggers have cravings one ma. Another theory I heard is that it is more important to satisfy the cravings rather than sticking to the pantangs. Aiya as long as moderately, can one lah XD

  7. Hi Louiz! I am so happy to see your update :) Aiyo, I will sure sapu the whole bowl if you put it in front of me! I love kidney and liver, especially liver. And if it is cooked just nice, it will be so tender and sedap. So just off fire and put the liver/kidneys in. eh? Worried also about bacteria but if the innards are fresh and properly cleaned it should be alright. I am not into pantang larang, I always believe that any nutritious food is good. Just exercise moderation and you will be fine. I think this weekend I wanna go buy liver hee..hee..

    1. The innards were fresh, according to MIL.. But, nomatter how fresh, how clean, there will still be a bit of blood when you cook them in the soup (off fire).. I still sapu-ed, maybe not good for me, but errr, already eaten, buurrrppp.. hehe..

  9. They say your cravings is an indication of what your body lacks in during pregnancy. So eat what you want as long as it's in moderation.

    1. Yep, everything in moderation.. I even curi-ed a few slices of pineapples to eat from the fridge.. I don't believe in "this cannot eat, that cannot eat" during pregnancy, well, except certain food like deli meat and sashimi la..

  11. long time no see new post in this blog, haha.. so, making a comeback with this huge bowl of liver and kidney?? or probably to keep your blog alive, at least have one post a month lah hor?? hahaha.. now we all know you are in your 18th week, thanks to Sharon, we have a timekeeper there :D

    hmmm, you like to eat this ah?? errr, sorry ah, me really not ngam all those "noi jorng" one woh, when eat pork noodles also i will ask to have only the meat and not the innards ga woh.. but i didn't know during pregnancy you also cannot eat all these leh, but i think during confinement this will be your sort of "staple food" and you will eat this every meal every day..

    looks simple how you prepare this bowl of things, but then i think the preparation is kind of tedious right?? i've heard you need to clean them really really clean else the whole thing stinks and you won't be able to put them into your mouth.. so you actually asked your MIL to get you those from market and already cleaned lah?? senang lah like that, just cook the soup and throw them inside to "gook", i didn't now that too, haha!! not surprising lah, cos i don't eat also mah~~ :)

    so looks like you have no pantang at all woh.. good lah, like the mat salleh, just eat whatever feel like eating nia.. but if your body can take it, then why not?? sometimes overprotective also not a good thing hor?? :p

    1. Many people don't eat innards, I un.. Especially the kidneys, coz they say got one type of smell.. I shall be specific, it's the urine smell, I admit.. But if you really clean them well (my previous confinement lady soak the pieces in ginger water), ok wor.. But I didn't soak them in ginger water la, I just wash it and soak in tap water.. Nomatter how clean, how fresh, still got that smell one I tell you..

      I try la, one post per 2 weeks or more.. Human hor, hai kam ger wor, stop liao a moment hor, lazy jor wor.. Although got a lot of things can write (my pregnancy stuffs, kun yam ping issues at work, depression, simple and dumbo baking/cooking), still feel lazy a bit jor wor.. Hmmpphhh..

  16. Awesome! This is the kind of food I crave for too.

    I love pork liver (kidneys are rarer, seldom see them, not sure why). I've seen pig liver in supermarkets though.

    1. Liver cannot eat too much, and frankly, mum says nowadays, nobody wants to eat liver already, coz they are dirty wor.. But I still eat anyways..

    2. I love to eat pig liver!

      It's what we eat together with kampua, pig liver soup. It's very good if they don't overcook it. I think all livers cannot eat too much (too many vitamins which are fat soluble and you can overdose from) but generally should be okay if you don't eat everyday.

  20. Liver and kidney, yum! But can spike cholesterol reading though when taken in excess. The trade-off is it is a great source of iron (liver) - esp suitable for pregnancy, I suppose. Sardines are good too - great source of iron and calcium. Mercury? Any fish has it too if it's from the ocean. Everything in moderation is a safe bet. Take care there, Princess..
