Curry Mee (Vegetarian)

Curry Mee. The vegetarian version (Penang Curry Mee & Home Made Curry Mee). The power house of any curry mee, definitely must be the curry itself. Get the curry right and you have achieved millions of curry milestones. Otherwise? Keep practicing until you have perfected the curry. Alternatively, what is this curry mee vegetarian recipe doing here? Of course, obviously, if you are considering a totally to vegetarianism or as a base for a non-vegetarian curry. Curry made from homemade curry paste, coconut milk, tamarind, lemongrass and pretty much the customary ingredients for any curry for the matter. Once curry is made, we assemble noodles alongside fried brinjal, fried tofu, green chilli and spring onion, followed by generously pouring curry atop. My cooking style to my Curry Mee Vegetarian? Evidently, says it all. 

For Curry
1 tbsp dried chilli paste (or as per taste)
1 tbsp plain curry powder (or as per taste)
1 tbsp shallot paste 
1/2 tbsp ginger paste 
1 serai/lemongrass - crush
2 pieces asam keping/ dried tamarind fruit 
1/2 liter vegetable stock (either ready made stock or simmer carrots, red onion and celery sticks)
2 cups thick coconut milk
1/4 cup oil
Salt to taste

Other Ingredients
1 packet yellow mee/noodles - blanch to soften
1 piece white hard tofu - slice, season with salt and lightly fry  
3 small Chinese brinjals/eggplant - slice, add salt and fry 
2 green chillies - cut into two and slice
2 stalks spring onions - slice thinly

Into a bowl, mix together chilli paste, curry powder, garlic paste, shallot paste and lemon grass.
When oil is heated, fry the chilli mixture.
Stir and fry till oil splits. 
Pour in vegetable stock, add asam pieces and season with salt.  
Simmer till heated through.  
Pour in coconut milk and simmer, again to heat through. 
Keep it simmering or simmer again before assembling.  

To Serve:
Assemble noodles with fried brinjals, tofu, green chillies and spring onion.   
Pour curry atop and enjoy your meal.

  4. Wow, I am salivating! Lol. But seriously, I've always had a thing for curry mee and vegeterian food. That brinjals look delicious. However I'd prefer to use vermicelli/bee hoon instead of yellow mee. =)

  5. Hi everyone,
    I suppose we modify the recipes to suit our taste and preferences which I so all the time.

  6. That looks so creamy, and looks so yummy! I missed curry mee.
