Vegetarian Mutton Rendang

As the name of the recipe says, its a rendang dish. The only different between the original rendang and this one is the mock mutton, the so called "vegetarian mutton"(vegetarian mutton peratal, vegetarian mutton varuval and vegetarian mutton curry). Sold in packets at supermarkets and reasonably priced. In fact if you like to use meat/poultry, you can. Otherwise the veg mutton, cooked with Asian herbs, chillies and coconut milk and for aroma, turmeric leaf.

450g vegetarian mutton - wash and gently squeeze out excess water
1/4 cup ideal milk (or coconut milk)
1 kunyit/turmeric leaf - sliced
2 small pieces dried tamarind/assam keping
1 small piece palm sugar
1/4 cup oil
Salt for taste 

For rendang paste (blend/ground)
8 dried red chillies (or as preferred)
1 inch ginger
5 pips garlic
5 shallots
1 inch fresh turmeric
1 inch galangal/lengkuas
1 lemongrass/serai

When oil is heated, fry rendang paste till aromatic and oil splits.
Add mutton and dried tamarind.
Season with sugar and salt.
Pour in milk.
Stir all together till gravy thickens up.
Off heat and combine in sliced turmeric leaf.
