Sukhi Aloo Sabzi

Potatoes! Tell me please? The kilos and kilos we buy most probably every week and any dish for the matter made from potatoes I think will be a total sell-out the moment it hits our dining table? If you are asking me, oh-yes. We just so love potatoes any which way they are cooked (Tari Wale Aloo/Vegan Potato Curry), plus I can go on and on and quote a whole string and list of potato dishes I have already shared with all of you, but off hand, these are the few I thought I will link (Fried Potato Balls, Dum Aloo, Chilli Aloo & Aloo Gobi) for the benefit of staying within the context of vegetarian dishes. What is Sukhi Aloo Sabzi by the way (Kashmiri Vegetable SoupTamatar ki Chutney, Aam ka Achaar, Shahi Gobi Baingan Bharta)? Obviously, a North Indian dry style potato dish which requires boiled potatoes stir fried alongside the ingredients listed below and my style is perhaps different. Usually I think green peas are not one of the ingredients? I on the other hand decided I will because, to each our own preferable ingredients instead of like blind leading the blind? Of course. Sukhi Aloo Sabzi? Your vegetarian and vegan side dish for a rice meal (Tomato Rice Pilaf & Hyderabadi Briyani) or how about tucking in alongside bread, chapati or tosa (Punjabi Sabut Moong Dal & Navratan Korma)?  

3 medium size potatoes - boil till tender, remove skin and cut into small pieces
1 cup frozen green peas
4 shallots - chopped
1/2 inch ginger - chopped
1 red chilli - chopped
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
2 sprigs coriander leaves - shredded
2 sprigs curry leaves - shredded
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Heat oil and splatter mustard and cumin seeds.
Add ginger, shallots and chilli.
Fry to soften (1-2mins).
Add turmeric powder and chilli powder. 
Quickly stir and add the rest of the ingredients - potatoes, green peas, coriander leaves and curry leaves.
Season with salt.
Keep frying to combine all the ingredients for another 2 minutes.
Increase the heat and fry for another 2 mins or so. 
Remove once done.

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.
