Penang Assam Laksa Recipe - Sour food for man can help wife to conceive baby Boy, believe it or not?



Yes, yes, another sour and spicy dish post! Nope, my wifey is not pregnant......errrr, maybe?...he he he!
I cooked this Penang Assam Laksa last weekend because my friend who stays in Bandar Botanic in Klang gave me a big bunch of mint (po ho, pudina). She planted the mint in her home garden. I garnished my laksa with lots of mint! mmmmm, nice leh! yum yum!

I didn't buy any Kembong Fish (Indian Mackerel) but used canned tuna instead. Actually, I find peeling the kembong fish for Assam Laksa takes up too much time, so I tried to substitute it with canned fish. Although the soup didn't turned out as good as the one using fresh Indian Mackerel fish, I still find all the other assam Laksa flavours in it. I shared the assam laksa with my next door and opposite neighbours.
For the Assam Laksa recipe you can click this link to my previous post, Penang Assam Laksa Recipe.

PS : My ex boss used to tell me that, guys who loves to eat sourish food would produce baby boy when their wife conceive. He don't like sourish food, so he had 3 daughters. Mmmm, I wonder whether that is true or not? I have 2 sons! Believe it or not? LOL!

Have heard of the belief of taking certain kinds of food in order to conceive the gender one wishes. But I don't think it's true.

willie a.k.a reptoz said...

Haha! I hope the myth is real.

lena said...

hey, you think that will work for my dog? haha!!

Jane - Kitchen Stools Direct said...

LOL. That 'sour foods for a boy' myth could actually have its own scientific explanation.. and I guess it has got something to do with pH levels. Lovely blog, by the way, and amazing recipes with some mouth-watering photographs to do justice.
