Grapefruit Coconut Jelly

I'm assuming. Please, please, can I for once assume? Can't be you are the one always assuming, I must be given my chance as well? Right now, I'm assuming there's two things working on your mind after seeing this Grapefruit Coconut Jelly. Either you are impressed or you are going like, what another almost similar jelly (Dragon Fruit Coconut Jelly & Pandan Coconut Jelly)? Honestly, lemme move to the recipe now. Grapefruit Coconut Jelly is a wow-pow for its tanginess, creaminess, sweetness and soft melting moment in your mouth and mine as well. Bye everyone.

Egg Curry Masala

I've said it before, and I am saying it again. Curries and all things spicy curry nice (Cauliflower Curry, Indian Tofu Curry, Indian Vegetable Curry & Vegetarian Mutton Curry)? Curries. The must in my house for my Indian half-half. Like, as though no curry, no food life and curry, as much as for atop rice before tucking in (Pepper Mutton Curry, Bitter Gourd Prawn CurryBengali Yogurt Fish Curry & Crab Curry)? Whatever and whichever, but if you someone like me who cook curries at least, 3 to 4 times in a week, here's the Egg Curry Masala recipe for you (Tamarind Prawn Curry, Chicken Potato Curry & Malaysian Indian Fish Curry). Masala basically meaning spices (Masala Mutton Curry), green chillies for the extra heat spiciness and boiled eggs (Egg Rasam), scented by curry leaves, as well as coriander leaves.

Bean Sprouts With Salted Fish

Bean Sprouts with Salted Fish. The quickly stir fried style and salted fish, remember, I have already told you (Pineapple Salted Fish Curry, Pumpkin Salted Fish Curry, Salted Fish Mango Sambal, Pada Salt Fish & Salted Fish Pickle)? Salted Fish. Like the Midas touch for bean sprouts with salted fish? I have nothing further to say (Kacang Buncis Tempe, Tofu Green Beans, Four Angled Beans, Beans Thoran & Red Cabbage Thoran).

Lemon Cashew Rice

No, no. I'm not going to start by repeating the same lemon theory. The theory which has been overused and over-rated until it sounds so rusty to my ears. I know, generally, when lemon is a concern, we tend to have the habit of starting of by saying that "when life gives you lemons, make lemonade" Oh god! So boring. Lemme on the other other hand say this - when life gives you lemons, make lemon cashew rice. Sound so much better, don't you think so? I bet. So, lemon basically for this Lemon Cashew Rice (Lamb Fried Rice, Belacan Fried Rice & Chinese Fried Rice)? Made in the rice cooker though a tiny bit of cooking atop the stove involved. Lemony and curry leaves scented rice, further elevated by cashew nuts and ghee (Ghee Rice & Jeera/Cumin Rice). Blissful mouthwatering deliciousness (Tomato Rice & Nasi Dagang).

Cauliflower Curry

How would you personally define vegetarianism? Does it mean vegetarianism is the way to holiness and healthiness? I am actually quite confused (Gado Gado, Mee Rojak Vegetarian, Corn Soup & Pumpkin Soup). I am not sure too. Why do people generally look up at vegetarians? Look, I am not saying you must look down on them, but  trust me, there are rolly-polly vegetarians and not necessarily they are the most humbles religious people (Indian Tofu Curry, Chilli Aloo & Sambar). I personally know of stinking vegetarians. Nevertheless, in all fairness, we should sum all vegetarians as, whatever you like to call them. Being a vegetarian is basically our choice for whatever reasons own best to us instead of? How about in my house are you asking? We are definitely not vegetarians, but our daily meals definitely consists of at least a single or two vegetarian dishes (Vegetarian Mutton Curry, Indian Vegetable Curry, Yam Basket Vegetarian & Spinach Sambar). This cauliflower curry (Aloo Gobi), don't you think speaks for itself. Obviously, a vegetarian version obvious. Aromatic, spicy and tangy.

Gado Gado

Gado Gado! The platter dish. The dish as finger food, or appetizer or starter (Rice Vadai, Chinese Prawn Fritters, Grilled Chicken Wings, Fried Shrimp Wantons & Bonda). Actually Gado Gado can even be your main course. Perhaps? If you don't want a heavy meal or a complete Gado Gado like this one, trust me, can fill you up as well. What can expect in Gado Gado? Tofu, potatoes, tempeh/fermented soy and fresh raw vegetables. My this, Nava K's version is a vegetarian and grilled version instead of frying the items. Of course, you can, go ahead, include fried seafood, poultry, meat or whatever whichever.

Mutton Varuval

In throne mutton again. See I told you? You can't possibly separate mutton from Indians like us (Mutton Parathal, Pepper Mutton Curry, Indian Mutton Meatball Soup & Mutton Soup)? No, you can't. I am okay, but my other half-half? He is out rightly a mutton lover. So? Instead of repeating the same mutton dish, I try to coin new dishes (Mutton Dalca, Mutton Kurma, Masala Mutton Curry & Mutton Keema). Mutton Varuval of course obviously is a dry style and believe me, there's various ways and various styles according to your preference. Mine version is a twist. A twist in the sense that I added dark soy sauce and almond powder. Of course, almond powder or even paste can be replaced by cashew nuts or kas-kas, if you want to. But the end result will still be succulent mutton coated in a dry style spicy gravy and scented by coriander leaves (Vegetarian Mutton Varuval).
