Thai Vegetable Curry

Shall we return back to Thailand? Not as in taking the flight to Thailand, but pretty much, or should I say we bringing Thailand closer for a Thai dish (Tom Yum Prawn Fried Rice & Seafood Tom Yum Soup)? Why not? I have no qualms, I hope you are agreeing as well? Thailand, Thai cuisine and Thai quintessential ingredients (Spicy Thai Noodles & Thai Carrot Soup) for the rupturing and explosion of big, bold, punchy and kicky tastes (Thai Fish Noodle Soup & Thai Mee Hoon Salad). Right. Shall we now move on to making another Thai curry (Thai Green Fish Curry, Thai Yellow Chicken Curry & Thai Chicken Green Curry).  Sure. Home made Thai curry paste, made from those aromatic herbs and we also need coconut milk for creaminess and a couple of vegetables. Packing a major punch as the mover and shaker on our palates? Thai Vegetable Curry! 

For the curry paste 
2 red chillies
1 small green bell pepper 
4 shallots
5 garlic
1 inch galangal/lengkuas
1 lemongrass/serai
1/2 tsp lime rind
1 small bunch coriander leaves
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
** add some water and blend/ground for a thick paste

3-4 boiled eggs (omit if you don't take eggs)
2 medium size potatoes - cut into 8 pieces
1 small aubergine/eggplant - cut into 1 inch length
1 cup thick coconut milk
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp fish sauce 
3-4 sprigs Thai basil leaves
1/4 cup oil
Salt for taste
When oil is heated, fry curry paste till oil splits.
Pour in 1 cup water. 
Add potatoes and aubergine.
Cook to soften both. 
Next add the rest of the ingredients.
Stir and let the curry heat through. 
Off the heat and combine in basil leaves.

  2. hi nava,how are you, hope you have fully recovered from your fever.
    green curry is also my favorite...but have not tried one with veggies only.looks delicious and authentic. i like thai basil and eat as ulam.

  3. are very brave to travel alone.

  4. it is one of my favorite..
    During my trip to BKK I got a lot of those curry sachets (ready to make)

  5. Gee, I hope I'm not like that (but you probably think I'll be like that-don't like heat, prawns, expensive goods, spoilt, fussy, chatty, loco) people can change, hope to latch on to future tours (one that's not Turkey deluxe).

    Now back to food, you certainly bring back good recipes.

  6. I am not into thai curries but I supposed I can make them for the family who absolutely adore it.

  7. That is a lovely platter ...shall try

  8. I need to try this amazing delicious recipe love Thai food

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.
