Vegetarian Mutton Rendang

I think I am the first and I will most probably remain in the number one league until this recipe of mine is copied. Hopefully, those who copy have mastered the art of bluffology because rendang definitely is not from India. Of course, Malaysian Indians? Credit my recipe if you are badly want to copy. Actually, come to think of it, nothing much I can do. After all, in the virtual world, there are many loopholes for copying. Boo-hoo-hoo! Alright, let's get down to the business of making Vegetarian Mutton Rendang (Vegetarian Mutton Curry). Remember, we spoke about the vegetarianism theory to vegetarian mutton before (Vegetarian Mutton Varuval & Vegetarian Mutton Peratal)? We sure did. Vegetarian Mutton Rendang? Vegetarian mutton, Malaysian herbs, chillies, coconut milk and turmeric leaf scented. Tadaa!

450g vegetarian mutton - wash and gently squeeze out excess water
1/4 cup coconut milk)
1 kunyit/turmeric leaf - slice
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 and cook till gravy thickens up.
Off the heat and combine in sliced turmeric leaf.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
