Bubur Asyura (using the PHILIPS Pressure Cooker)


Hari Asyura falls on the 10th of Muharram of the Muslim calendar. On this day, many historical events occured and Muslims are encouraged to fast, breaking their fast with Bubur Asyura. One story which I learnt about the makings of Bubur Asyura, is during a time of famine, Prophet Muhammad (SAW) collected whatever each household had in their homes, put everything in a huge cauldron and cooked it up for the whole community to share as meal together, thus the Bubur Asyura. In Malaysia, there are various versions of the Bubur Asyura. The main ingredients are primarily beans. This version that I am sharing, is how my mum cooks it and this is how most Johoreans appreciate this porridge.

Cooking Bubur Asyura in a PHILIPS Pressure Cooker is ideal as it cooks the beans to perfection. My mum said that she felt all the flavours of the spices were intensified with the use of the PHILIPS Pressure Cooker. With a touch of two buttons and 30 minutes, you will get the perfect Bubur Asyura!
