Vegetarian Mutton Rendang, Vegetarian Mutton Curry, Vegetarian Mutton Peratal & Vegetarian Mutton Varuval). Yep. The mushroom stalks (Mushroom Veggie Burger) made mutton pieces. The pretty much safest compared to mock chicken, mock mutton and those all about coloring and taste enhanced artificial vegetarian mocks. Actually, to tell you the truth, my husband is still not in flavour of even these vegetarian mutton, but I am okay. He actually prefers the real vegetarian food deal (Bitter Gourd Sambar, Eggplant Tikka Masala, Vegetarian Sandwich & Cucumber Yogurt Salad). What should I say? I guess to each its own. But potentially, there's no point I cook vegetarian mutton if he is not keen? Unless, every now and then I cook for myself. Right. Lets get to the recipe now (Baked Bread Rolls & Vegetarian Winter Melon Soup). Spices and all things nice, vegetarian mutton mixed with turmeric powder (Turmeric Tomato Soup) and corn flour and fried, followed by quickly stir frying (Spinach Tofu Stir Fry) together.

I guess when you don't know what else to do with lamb or mutton, you start searching (Lamb Kofta Curry & Mutton Varuval). Search for what? Search for recipes. Where do we start searching? Go ahead. Aplenty recipes will pop up when you Google and these days, trust me, there's so many people who share recipes online. Did I copy the recipes? Nope. I read through and I coined this recipe of mine. Yes. Otherwise, why is my recipe different and for Lamb Rogan Josh which is actually lamb curry, what can really be different? We definitely need the usual ingredients? Oh, before I brush it aside, Rogan Gosh by the way is a Persian or Kashmiri style of curry. Persians and people from Kashmir origin I bet love their yogurt? So do I (Cucumber Yogurt Salad & Mor Rasam). In fact I love this yogurt ingredient concept. Always, most of the time, a tub of yogurt sitting in my fridge. What else should I say? Temptation to the highest degree. Lamb Rogan Josh is like a massive salivating temptation.

Tomato Spinach Soup). The escape for me from Indian food of course is when he is away (Rice Congee With Condiments). I think that is a fair marriage deal? I think so. Now, lets get down to making this soup and whoever said we can't make vegetarian Chinese dishes (Yam Basket Vegetarian, Vegetarian Fried Bee Hoon & Vegetarian Chow Mein). Am I a vegetarian? Nope. Maybe, every now and then, as and when, I do prefer vegetarianism (Mushroom Veggie Burger) and soups by itself, by far is simplicity. I like it. Back from work, look into the fridge, remember I told you, my fridge is always stocked up, and then those ingredients quickly prepared for going into a pot for simmering. Slow simmering of course for the flavours to rise up (Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup). But you need a good stock. Keep some stocked up as well. Without a good stock, soups may not be all that exciting to our palates.Vegetarian Chinese Winter Melon Soup? Winter melon, woflberries, dried black fungus, vegetable stock and parsley leaves garnished.

Another marriage matched in heaven our Malaysian Petai (Sambal Sotong Petai), aka Stink Beans dish. Its perfection to our palates when we forcefully or without forcing each other to be together in a sambal spiciness (Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin). Petai and Udang/Prawns (Sambal Petai Udang Kering)? Even Petai and Bilis/Anchovies (Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis Petai & Sambal Bilis Petai)? Where are you petai lovers? Are you not agreeing with me? I bet you love any of these combination of petai and of course, how can we cook petai, as I have already told you without chillies (Sambal Udang/Prawn)? Henceforth, to make this Sambal Udang Petai, essentially, in fact you must buy the freshest prawns (Prawn Noodle Soup, Devilled Prawns & Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry). Otherwise, you are wasting your time and your money. Make sure you checklist the prawns first (Chinese Prawn Fritters, Prawn Mango Curry & Sichuan Chilli Prawns) whilst picking up the petai. When petai is a concern for me, I usually buy those already peeled and sealed in the plastic for time saving and instead of adding the pieces just like that, I slice. Why do I slice the petai? Because of the probability of wriggly worms playing sparks inside. Thereafter? Go ahead. Replicate or tweet this recipe of mine.

Remember? Remember I told you I ventured on my own to Bangkok (Bangkok Through My Canon & Chonburi)? Apart from sightseeing, I also picked up some cooking tips and skills. Not taught by the Thais, but from my food venturing. As it is, I can consider myself as my own game changer to Thai cooking (Thai Fish Noodle Soup, Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon & Thai Mee Hoon Salad)? Therefore, I pretty much got exploring further. Of course, I do from time to time pick up other vital cooking tips from TV programs and if I come across Thai recipes, I won't miss out on screening through. The rest of course is history. Not a major changing the world history, but the already made my cooking history. From my kitchen to my dining table and then to all of you (Spicy Thai Noodles, Thai Green Fish Curry & Tom Yum Prawn Fried Rice). Chicken of course is the central ingredient, but more to that is the yellow curry paste. The power packing made from the must have or must add Thai ingredients (Tom Yam Chicken). Then again, these ingredients are actually a common sight in our Malaysian ground. We Malaysians by far use the same ingredients for our Malaysian cooking too (Curry Chicken Noodles, Sweet Chilli Chicken & Easy Chicken Kebab). Thai Yellow Chicken Curry. Bang! Instantly will wake up your palates for its bags of tastes. Big huge bags mind you.

Such beauties, don't you think so? These Saffron Poached Pears? I believe so. In fact, I am impressed with myself and the outcome to this style to poaching pears. Can you still recall my previous Poached Pears In Citrus Syrup? Right. Idea toying spilling over thereafter and instead of like many of the rest, many other foodies who swear by red wine poached pears. Saffron obviously is the key tuner. Yes. You need the saffron strands which can be on a pricey side and can be purchase from the Indian shops. Not all shops sell saffron strands, so, perhaps you need to? Go and look for those stores. A box of saffron will cost like? Maybe RM15 - RM20. I am guessing. I am not really sure. My saffron strands on the other hand, me paying RM10.00 and coming home with me from Bangkok (Bangkok Through My Canon) Alongside saffron and the rest of the ingredients listed below, I also included tiny sticks of cinnamon and the outcome? These loveable and melting in your mouth sweet treat (Grapefruit Coconut Jelly, Coconut Panna Cotta, Cream Puffs & Baked Rice Pudding).

Tomatoes. I need them. I sincerely must have them for my cooking ((Lamb Kofta Curry). My curries mostly are perfected with the sour tinge from tomatoes (Thai Green Fish Curry & Bitter Gourd Prawn Curry) and pretty much for other dishes as well (Tomato Rice & Ayam Masak Merah). Tomatoes into soups. Of course. Why? You should (Chicken Vegetable Soup & Mor Rasam). Obviously so, I don't have say anything further about this Tomato Spinach Soup. Oh, yes-yes, I am all in for spinach too (Spinach Tofu Stir Fry). What's with this soup? A vegetarian version and my style as you know, for those of you who know me, I don't search, seek and search high and low for ingredients. I am pretty much the convenient cook. The cook who look within the hypermarket I am staying close by. Even for this Tomato Spinach Soup. The health is wealth soup. Simplicity in return speaking for itself (Turmeric Tomato Soup).
