(DIY#6)自制酵素饭 D.I.Y Enzyme Rice

这酵素饭其实是吉兰丹和泰南驰名的青叶饭,阿贤的节目也曾经介绍过,这种饭当地人叫 Khao Jam;Khao是饭的意思,Jam 则是掺杂的意思。也有人叫它作Nasi Kerabu, 其实是不同的东西。

这青叶饭做法很简单,先到马来人营业的Pasar Tani/Pasar Malam 跑一次,应该能买到大多数的材料,

因为切配料功夫很多,所以要记得先煮饭, 后准备配料,不然等你切好配料才煮饭已太迟了。



香茅*、班兰叶*、麻风柑叶*、叻沙叶*(Daun Kesom)、少许糖*、崩大碗、吉仔叶、鸡粪藤、姥叶(Daun Sirih)、 蓝姜叶、九层塔、黄姜叶和其他姜类或你能找到的有香味可食用的叶子都可用,种类越多,煮的饭越香。


More on Jaggery



Jaggery or “Gur” or whole sugar is a pure, wholesome, traditional, unrefined, whole sugar. It contains the natural goodness of minerals and vitamins inherently present in sugarcane juice & this crowns it as one of the most wholesome and healthy sugars in the world. It Mexico & South America, it is also known as panela.

Why is it healthy?

Jaggery, being a wholesome sugar, without doubt is rich in the vitally important mineral salts: 2.8 grams per 100 grams, that is to say 28 grams per kilogram, while only 300 milligrams per kilogram is found in refined sugar.
Magnesium strengthens the nervous system & potassium is vital to conserve the acid balance in the cells and combats acids and acetone. Jaggery is very rich in iron, which, a composite of hemoglobin prevents anemia.

Manufacture of sugar from cane juice employs a potpourri of chemicals as sulphur dioxide, lime, phosphoric acid, bleaching agents & viscosity reducers. Jaggery is processed the natural way & no chemicals are added at any stage of its processing.

Jaggery is often called the ‘medicinal sugar. So much so, you can become an emergency doctor with Jaggery. It is also very useful in health problems like —
Dry Cough, Cough with Sputum , Indigestion, Constipation

Ancient medical scriptures dating back to 2500 years state how it purifies the blood, prevents rheumatic afflictions and disorders of bile and possesses nutritive properties of high order.

(Sushruta Samhita, Chapter 45, sloka 146)

The preventive action of jaggery on smoke-induced lung lesions suggest the potential of jaggery as protective agent for workers in dusty and smoky environments- paper presented by scientists of Industrial Toxicology Research Centre at a Workshop held in Lyon, France.

[Environ Health Perspect, 102(Suppl 6): 211-214 (1994)]

According to an experiment, Turbinado Sugar treated rats showed enhanced translocation of coal particles from lungs to tracheobronchial lymph nodes.
Hence, it fights pollution too! No wonder Jaggery is regularly consumed by thousands of industrial workers / traffic policemen who are exposed to higher levels of pollution. It helps them breathe easier and counter pollution naturally.

Manufacture Process–

Raw sugarcane juice is slowly simmered in pans & the water is progressively evaporated. Clarification is done using natural vegetable clarificants. Scooping the boiling juice from one pan to another until the liquid starts to go hard carries out this process. The complete process is chemical-free。

其实,印度黑糖是一种原始的糖,在印度乡村相当普遍。制造过程是把甘蔗搾汁,过滤后 再把甘蔗汁 反复煮滚,冷却成型。各各乡村制造的形状各异。
印度黑糖的用途多,除了DIY酵素, 在印度可拿来弄甜点,菜肴及养身治病。我试过拿来冲咖啡,特别香!试一试。
哪里有卖? 我真的不知道,我也找了好久, 最近因认识了个做杂货批发的泰国朋友才买到的,但一次要买很多。如果您知道本地哪里有散卖,请和其他读者分享一下!
