The Story Of Ombulung

What is "Ombulung", My friends ombulung is some kind of delicious mushroom to eat at Sabah,Malaysia. How can this mushroom being called "Ombulung" ? Hmm good question.. but hard to answer hehehe... :) Kadazan people call this mushroom as "Ombulung" because it is only appear or grow up when our temperature suddenly drop down. Some people say it's only appear one times per year. That's my grandma said to me.

How does this "Ombulung" look like ?



Some say "Ombulung" also have a season to grow up, maybe because of micro temperature condition. The best time to pick up this "Ombulung" is early in the morning. this time "Ombulung" is still fresh to eat. I don't know what is the scientific or English name for this Ombulung hmmm.... maybe Ombulungs hehehe just put "s" like bananas.

But we just take it in the afternoon (Nah... not fresh oledi) before we cook this Ombulung we must make some cleaning process.



This is my grandma.. Now she teaching a cleaning process


We must have a team work :)


Why does people say it is delicious ? This mushroom have it own taste, when we cook this ombulung, there is no need to mix up with anything, just boiling it with some water. ( Hard to believe, I also don't believe what i heard ) No need to mix with salt or Ajinomoto product

Because of i don't believe what they said to me, hmm..Lets try to cook, this Ombulung Mushroom with this simple procedure.. like making a simple soup

Ok.. i try to boil it using clay pot ...


Yes... it's good the soup taste is sweet..

maybe we should try to mix up with chicken or many type of soup
