Blogging definitely is a hobby but to keep it going is quite a thing. I for once admit when I started blogging, I was over the moon obsessed. Come rain or shine, I am in front of laptop updating my blog. No doubt blogging is also a learning curve because I have picked up a number of skills like better picturing and writing, improvised my cooking, I have met a couple of great bloggers in the cyber world and other small opportunities surely followed. Then again, a crucial factor for part time bloggers is finding the time between working, managing the home affairs and what to cook daily means you have to decide beforehand on the ingredients. Usually, if possible, I stock up the ingredients as and when I can and then dish out a meal when I get back home after working. For this dish, it was with the French beans, tofu and spices and albeit the hustle and bustle of the daily grind, feeling guilty as I have been neglecting my blog, I am here again.
1 block of white firm tofu - cut into small squares.
15 French beans/kacang buncis - remove strings and slice to 1/4 inch length.
4 shallots - chopped
1/4 inch ginger - chopped
1 1/2 tsp curry powder (any type)
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 star anise
2 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced
