Malaysian Curry with Stir Fried Noodles / Rice

BM # 19   Day 2

Recently I have been  wanting to try some international cuisine.Getting vegetarian recipes  which would be liked by the family is rather tough. All the same my interest becomes more challenging and search more frantic.Well, since I know a curry would pass off easily tried my hands on Malaysian Curry with Stir Fried Noodles.Dried spices freqently used in Malay cooking  are  fennel,cumin  ,coriander. Other  dried spices used are  cloves,fenugreek,cardamon,star anise,cinnamon,musturd seeds and nutmeg. 

Both fresh and dried ingredients are ground together to form a spice paste called rempah.Coconut milk is the base of Malay dishes,these are not typically hot.The dishes are aromatically spiced and coconut milk is added to lend a creamy flavor and richness.Tamamrind pulp is a key element in many Malay dishes for adding that tangy taste.


Coming to my version of curry...naturally it is coconut based with sweet and tangy flavor and served with Stir Fried Noodles. Since my hubby avoids refined flour products I made some Stir Fried Rice too.The curry tasted awsum and my recipe was 
rated*****...yes 5 stars , which means I have to make this more often.
Here is the recipe......

6 ..........onion shallots
6...........baby potatoes
6...........cauliflower / broccoli flowerets

How I prepared this meal............
Place the noodles to boil, using hot water from the kettle.
Microwave the cauliflower and potatoes.
I used ready made tamarind pulp and ready made roasted garlic.
While the veggies are being done prepare the tempering for curry and noodles and then Do the mixing of both curry and noodles.
Trust me your meal shall be done in less than 30 minutes.
If you make rice and noodles both it shall just take another 5 minutes, you just have to wash rice and add to the rice cooker.The tempering for rice and noodles is same.
