Spinach Tofu Stir Fry

Don't you think, will you not agree? This is such an attractive, healthy, power packing and so tempting side dish (Beans Thoran, Red Cabbage Thoran, Chloe Masala, Chilli AlooEggplant Tikka Masala & Tapioca Stir Fry)? Spinach Tofu Stir Fry. I don't know about you, I was over the moon and over the hill and over cloud nine after I made this vegetarian side dish and after tucking in, we all at home agreed. We felt as though we are in a non-boring vegetarian food zone (Turmeric Tomato Soup, Cucumber Yogurt Salad, Cauliflower Fritters, Kurkuri BhindiIndian Style Mustard Greens, & Plantain Crumble). Of course. I mean, are you not drooling? You should. Otherwise, I rest my case. Whatever. Spinach and Tofu stir fried alongside garlic and cumin seeds, omit chillies for kid friendliness (Bitter Gourd, Aloo Gobi, Mor Kulumbu, Creamy Coconut Lentil Curry & Mor Rasam).  

1 bunch (about 400g) spinach - discard roots, rinse and cut into 1 inch length
1 packet (about 300g) white hard tofu - cut into bite size pieces
1-2 red chillies - remove seeds and slice thinly
10 garlic - smashed
1 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
Squeeze of lemon/lime juice
2 tbsp of oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute garlic.
Add cumin seeds and tofu pieces.
Stir and cook till tofu becomes brown on the edges
Add spinach and sliced chillies.
Drizzle lemon/lime juice over and season with salt.
Stir for a couple of minutes prior to dishing out.

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.
