Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup

Vegetarianism? Nope. Not my topic. I have nothing much to say actually. In fact, I shouldn't because we are not full blown vegetarians (Carrot Poriyal, Kailan Oyster SauceCauliflower Curry, Gado Gado & Indian Tofu Curry). Of course, those of you who are born vegetarian or have embarked on a totality vegetarian journey, you are the best people to speak about why and what not about vegetarianism. We on the other hand are the every now and then vegetarians. Whenever we feel like. Not out of badly yearning for holiness or we are assured a place in heaven or what not. This Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup. Yes. I coined it.  Carrot, red onion and celery simmered for broth extraction and then given a new lease by enhancing the tastes. Prior to yellow noodles red capsicum and mustard green assembled, coriander leaves garnished and soup/broth/stock generously poured over. Enjoy your meal everyone (Curry Mee Vegetarian & Mee Rojak Vegetarian). Love you all. 

Ingredients
Yellow noodles as needed - blanched to soften
3/4 liter vegetable stock
10 garlic - remove skin and cut into two
1/2 red capsicum - sliced thinly into long stripes
100g mustard greens/sawi - wash and sliced 1 inch length
Coriander leaves for garnishing - sliced
2 tbsp oil
Crushed black pepper and salt for taste.

Method:
When oil is heated, sauté garlic.
Add stock and simmer.
Season with pepper and salt.
Keep it simmering.
To serve, blanch mustard green and capsicum in the soup for a min or so.
Assemble noodles in a bowl and top with the blanched veggies.
Pour soup over and garnish with coriander leaves.

  2. This looks like the perfect way to detox after all the holiday food. A veggie soup is something I could really enjoy, light and healthy-yum!
    I hope you enjoy your upcoming vacation. We all need a break once in a while and it is definitely a guarantee that you always come back in better spirits.

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.
