Edible Fern *

This is one of local dishes from my state, Sarawak. I was driving along Putrajaya last Wednesday
afternoon and I saw there was lots of Midin (as what most Sarawakian name it) along the road. This edible fern is fall under the category of Dennstaedtiaceae (family of Bracken fern). Sometimes, it can be cooked together with Fiddlehead fern as shown above. The best way to have it is by frying it with an ingredient that contains shrimp paste, anchovies, chilies, garlic and onion. The last time I enjoy this is during my last Christmas holiday.

The only reason that I posting about this is because I have a thought of planning a short trip to Putrajaya tomorrow and visit the place where I saw Midin. But I am still not sure as I definitely will be lone ranger unless I can make someone or bunch of friends to join me with this crazy plan of mine..hehehe...So, friends, do alert with your mobile phone tonight as it might be me ringing you to join me tomorrow..
