I remember when I was a young girl starting to learn to cook with my mother. She asked me to use the pestel and mortar to make the kerisik. I was about 12 years old at that time. I hated it. It took me forever to turn the coconut paste into the right consistency.
I asked her, “Mom, is this enough?” “Not yet!”, came the answer. After about 10 times of yelling to and fro, she was finally satisfied and said: “Yes, this is what you want, you want the oil to come out like this.”
Have fun with this one.
P.S. What would you do?
