Corn Soup (Indian Style) - Vegetarian

I've been singing "rain, rain go away, overgrown Nava want to play". But you know how stubborn things and people are? Even rain. When you least expect, when you have washed a big bundle of clothes and when you have spring-washed your car, the rain must come pouring down. Otherwise, how can our life be colorful? We sure need the colors? So with the rain, I'm bringing you a non-boring soup. Said before, I can't though remember how many times I have repeated like a parrot that rainy day is a soupy day. This vegetarian Indian style soup (Pumpkin Soup). Corn, white tofu, spices, butter, spring onion and coriander leaves. Feel free to slurp in everyone. Bye for now.

2 (abt 400g) whole corn - break into 3 or 4 portions/pieces
1 (abt 80g) tomato - chopped
1 piece white hard tofu - cut into cubes
2 green chillies - remove seeds and chopped
5 shallots - sliced thinly
Spices - 2 sticks of cinnamon, 2 star anise and  4 cloves
15g or 1 tbsp butter
Spring onion and coriander leaves (as needed) - shredded
1/2 liter of water
Salt and pepper for taste

Simmer corn with 3 cups of water.
Cook corn until soft, remove and let it cool down.
Reserve the corn stock and carefully slice/cut corn kernel off the cob.
Heat butter and when heated, saute shallots.
Add spices, green chillies and tomato.
Stir for about 2-3 minutes.
Pour in corn stock and add tofu.
Season with salt and pepper.
When soup is heated through, add corn kernels, spring onion and coriander leaves.
Stir and remove from heat.

  8. this looks tempting and I would love to try it but the problem is that I'm just tooooooo lazy to lift a pan, much more to cook. Nyahaha

  9. This looks delicious - I love that you added tofu! A nice change of pace from heavy corn chowders...

  10. I love this, but I will be tempted to put corn meat on it, they work really good with corn :)

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.
