Tomato Spinach Soup

Tomatoes. I need them. I sincerely must have them for my cooking ((Lamb Kofta Curry). My curries mostly are perfected with the sour tinge from tomatoes (Thai Green Fish Curry & Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry) and pretty much for other dishes as well (Tomato RiceAyam Masak Merah). Tomatoes into soups. Of course. Why? You should (Chicken Vegetable Soup & Mor Rasam). Obviously so, I don't have say anything further about this Tomato Spinach Soup. Oh, yes-yes, I am all in for spinach too (Spinach Tofu Stir Fry). What's with this soup? A vegetarian version and my style as you know, for those of you who know me, I don't search, seek and search high and low for ingredients. I am pretty much the convenient cook. The cook who look within the hypermarket I am staying close by. Even for this Tomato Spinach Soup. The health is wealth soup. Simplicity in return speaking for itself (Turmeric Tomato Soup).  

1 bunch (about 400g) spinach - remove roots, wash thoroughly and sliced thinly
1 (about 200g) tomato - sliced thinly
5 garlic - chopped
1 onion - chopped
2 sprigs spring onion- sliced thinly
1/2 liter stock (any type of stock, I used vegetable stock)
2 tbsp oil
Salt and pepper for taste

When oil is heated, saute garlic and onion. 
Add tomato and stir for a minute or two. 
Pour in the stock and simmer to heat through. 
Season with salt and pepper.
Add spinach, stir and off the heat.
Garnish with spring onion.

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.
