Malaysian Rasam. Quick & Easy Rasam/Instant Indian Healthy Pepper Soup

Oh-Dear-My-Nava K! My blog. Blog of mine. This blog of mine. Obviously? Been neglected. My last blog pitching? 16th April (Som Tam/Thai Green Papaya Salad). Right now, you must be asking me why I have not been updated my blog right? No worries. I'll spill the beans right now and the beans will lead to? My yoga journey. Journey which has started very promisingly and this journey has been keeping me on my toes. Apart from the pressure I have been putting on myself, in finishing up my International Yoga Instructor Course. Plus, my thesis for my Master Of Science Yoga. Yes. I have to. Clock is ticking. Time is running out, and time is running really fast. Furthermore, not to forget about my home affairs chores. The cooking, washing, cleaning, as well as I am an avid home gardener and other things that I need to balance at home. Pretty much summing up or down? Why blog has been neglected. 

Having said that, its a tap on my shoulders by myself. Of course, if people don't praise you, let's praise ourselves. The tap on my shoulders is, in other words, I am proud of myself. Proud because I'm teaching "Corporate Yoga" and come 8th May, 20201, my yoga contribution by teaching yoga in a temple for a minimal fee. The small contribution of mine. Hopefully. In the future. Near future. I will be able to contribute more to the society. By offering more yoga classes as part of my social responsibility for a minimal fee  After all. Fulfillment to the yoga soul is not about making bundles of money, but about parting the goodness, perks and benefits of yoga. 

Alright. So much for what have been keeping my really busy and today, I am back with a recipe. Malaysian Rasam. Quick & Easy Rasam/Instant Indian Healthy Pepper Soup. Another version or the other version to such a, always welcomed in my home, Indian Vegetarian Soup. Let alone. The other types of rasam I have shared before (Pepper Garlic Rasam, Garlic Tomato Rasam, Pineapple Rasam, Egg Rasam, Home Made Rasam Powder, Rasam, Tomato Rasam & Crab Rasam). Why is this version different compared to the previous (Instant Rasam)? Well. Because. I discovered another brand of Instant Rasam and this one, for me personally, is the best amongst the rest. Apart from, I have improvised on the cooking technic to making an instant rasam. The easy and quick. In fact, the easiest and quickness Instant Rasam. Rasam! The diviners. The every loved. And rasam. Forever is a tango. Tango for matching and catching alongside, you name it, all those various types of side dishes. Including the vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Ditto. To the recipe now please. Oh, before I forget. The happiest part of it all? My YouTube video for this recipe has garnered one view! Yippie-yeh-yeh! If you don't mind, can you please shower aplenty extra rasam love on this video of mine please? Thanks a million darlings.

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.
