Vegetarian Chow Mein

Let's not even speak about the huge, humongous collection to various styles and types of Chow Mein. Aplenty mind you. In fact, spilling over crazily. To believe me, do the search in the virtual world. I bet you will be confused which recipe you should nail. Even for the vegetarian Chow Mein mind you. Did I peep or slyly steal other people's recipes? Neh? Whatever for? When we have decided to use our previously gained experiences in our kitchen (Vegetarian Fried Bee Hoon, Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup, Mee Rojak Vegetarian, Curry Mee Vegetarian & Vegetarian Mee Hoon). So, I say none further except introduce Vegetarian Chow Mein to you right now at this juncture. I believe egg noodles and egg by itself may be a restraining order for some vegetarians? Whereas others are super fine? To the pure vegetarians, switch to wheat noodles and obviously, don't crack the egg. Vegetarian Chow Mein is a truthful bridge to a healthy noodle dish. 

1/2 packet (300g) thin yellow noodles - rinsed
1/2 ginger - sliced thinly
5 garlic - sliced thinly
1/4 (150g) lettuce - sliced 
1/2 red capsicum - sliced
1/2 green capsicum - sliced
2 eggs (if you want to add)
2 sprigs of coriander leaves - sliced thinly
1 tsp sesame oil
1 1/2 tsp vegetable broth powder - mix with 1/4 cup of water
Oil as needed
Crushed black pepper and salt for taste

Heat 2-3 tbsp oil and when heated, break in eggs.
Season with pepper and salt.
Fry or scramble, remove and keep aside. 
Into the same wok, pour 2 tbsp of oil.
Saute ginger and garlic.
Add yellow noodles and stir for about 2-3 mins.
Pour in vegetable broth and let the noodles be cooked.
Add the rest of the ingredients and season with salt and pepper
Stir over high heat for a couple of time and dish out. 
(Optional: Serve with slices of cucumber).

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.
