Weekend Special....NASI LEMAK and SAMBAL SOTONG KEMBANG

Hi, how did you spend your weekend?? I had a fantastic time with my family and friends. Last saturday was one of my  good friend's "Valaikapu@Seemantham@Baby Shower" function. It was a gala feast....guests were served a complete traditional indian vegetarian food on banana leaf. I made for her two different types of candy@Coconut Peppermint Candy & Coconut Almond Candy and a bowlful of Gulab Jamun. Sorry I didn't had chance to snap any photo of these sweet delicacies as I was rushing for the function. 
Yesterday, I made Nasi Lemak/Coconut Rice and Sambal Sotong Kembang/Cuttlefish Sambal. .....hubby enjoyed it and I was so glad  that I made the sambal less spicy because both my toddlers had the same sambal gravy without any complaint.....It was a complete HAPPY MEAL for all of us :-)
