Vegetarian Mutton (Mushroom) Rendang Nasi Lemak

Apparently vegetarian mutton is made with either mushroom stalks or soy. I tend to agree as mushroom is listed as one of the ingredients on the packet. But not really sure if the mutton is 100% free from preservatives. Well, to be on the save side, as long as we don't go overboard with eating anything, we shouldn't worry about health. Regardless of whether vegetarian mutton is made with soy, I think its an ingredient vegetarians prefer. Perhaps why I too have made quite a number of dishes(vegetarian mutton  peratal, vegetarian mutton varuval, vegetarian mutton curry, vegetarian mutton rendang and stir fried vegetarian mutton curry leaves).

This time I made another type of vegetarian mutton rendang, paired with nasi lemak, cucumber and fried shallots. Certainly a complete meal vegetarians will love unlike the Nasi Lemak Prawn Sambal. More for the taste-buds of non-vegetarians. The ingredients listed below is only for the rendang. For the coconut milk rice recipe, please take from the previous one.     

1/2 packet (about 300g) vegetarian mutton - break up as individual rolls, gently rinse and squeeze out water.
4 to 5 kaffir/limau purut leaves
1/2 lime - extract juice
4 tbsp oil
Salt and sugar for taste

For the rendang paste
10 dried red chillies
5 shallots
1 inch galangal/lengkuas
5 garlic
** Blend/process to a thick paste
1 smashed lemongrass/serai
When oil is heated, fry paste with lemongrass till aromatic and oil splits.
Add mutton and the rest of the ingredients.
Gently stir as not to break the mutton rolls.
Once the gravy thickens (depending on how thick you prefer), remove from heat.
