Dry Curry Pork

“Authentic Asian flavour cooked instantly for Homesick Foreign Landers”

Dry curry means curry without wet gravy. It is a good choice as savoury filling of bread, tortilla wrap, naan and roti prata (I love it with steamed rice though :p). I prefer dry curry as the taste is stronger and more intensive to the palate. The curry texture is not too wet on the rice, but enough to complement it.

Good to cook it if you intend to bring it out to friend’s pot-luck party, picnic or as food gift to your relatives. No hassle and no worries that the gravy will spill while travelling. More

Curry Clams (咖喱蝲蝲)

“Quick Clams Recipe and Delicious Clams Dish in Curry Flavour!”

Yes, I cooked clams again.

Slightly different kind of clam. The shell is thicker, rounder in shape and darker in colour. This kind of clam is more common in Singapore. This thicker shelled clam is similar to the thinner one I used in my previous post (Chili & Tomato Sauces Clams recipe here), but I find the flesh of this clam is fuller and more juicy. More

Singapore Laksa (with All-in-One Laksa Paste Pack)

It’s Laksa time! (Laksa: Coconut Milk Curry)

Yes, it was laksa, again. I knew I had already posted laksa in the Low-Fat Singapore Laksa recipe, but this laksa recipe was more like a review of the ‘All-in-One curry laksa paste pack’.

My mother, who loved curry laksa, recommended this laksa paste of Prima Taste brand. With good reference, I did not hesitate to pay $5.75 for a pack of laksa paste. More

Vegetarian Curry Vegetables Dish

“Assorted Curry Vegetables, one of my favourite vegetarian dishes.”

Today is vegetarian day. First day of August, happens to be also the first day of lunar month of July this year. Chinese Lunar July is being referred as “hungry ghost month”. Chinese/ Asian also called it “seventh month”.

I remembered when I was in my teens, my mummy told us (siblings) not to go out in the night of “seventh month”. She won’t allow us to outing after 7pm. My mum believed that souls will be wandering around the street during the whole month of Lunar July, especially 14th of Lunar July, which is the actual day of “Ghost Festival”. The gate of hell will be opened to release all ghosts where many Buddhists would prepare ritualistic food offerings, burning incense and joss stick along the street, for the hungry ghosts. Quiet nights may look misty and feel eerieee… I am not going into this (bawling)! More

Low Fat Singapore Laksa

“Instant made ‘low fat’ Laksa with abundance of sides to go along!”

I wanted to cook up a quick meal, Laksa seemed like a good choice. Hadn’t gotten any chance to prepare the ingredients in advance (as I did my marketing of the day during lunch hour), I started to wash and peel the prawns, cut meat into thin slides and soak bean sprout, etc. Set them aside, I boiled a pot of water for making the soup base.

Since I usually did not have much time to cook extensively after work, I used readily packed laksa paste which commonly available in any supermarket (about $1.70 and $2.50 per packet). Guilty as charged, with no excuse, but I truly thought it does come in handy and eases my cooking, at times. :)) More
