Nyonya Vegetarian Pineapple Curry

People I know, those who started blogging at the same time as myself, are no longer blogging. They obviously have withdrawn from the blogging sphere for making their presence known in social media sites. Obviously, it is the trend. No two ways about it, mind you. I'm there as well. For me, social media sites are the jiffy for keeping my followers and fan updated on, basically, my life and style. Blogging on the other hand, is about nurturing my writing skills and also my stress buster. I will, for as long as I can, continue embracing this previous space of mine. The point to note, blogging is the go-getter for improving my writing skills. 

While I have lined up other life and style stories of mine for all of you loves, here's to another recipe of mine. Nyonya Vegetarian Pineapple Curry (Vegetarian Nyonya Laksa). Nyonya cuisine (Nyonya Acar Fish, Nyonya Okra Sambal & Nyonya Mee Siam) and this lady, Ms.Nava? Oh-yes please. As if we were cousins from last birth (Ayam Pongteh, Ikan Goreng Asam & Nyonya Prawn Sambal).  Ah! Do I even have to mention the number of Nyonya recipes I have shared so far, let alone, on the  mouthwatering role play of Nyonya tastes (Ayam Buah Keluak, Nyonya Hot And Sour Noodles & Nyonya Lam Mee). Shall we now, without wasting anymore time, hit it at the recipe? Of course, we should. Oh, oh, the herbs for this Nyonya Vegetarian Pineapple Curry - our Nava's Zen organic produce and Ms.Nava is the gardener by the way and all the way.
