My Almost Vegetarian Meals For The Day

MCO MEANS ......... 

It is all about food posting when it comes to MCO, no traveling, no meeting up with friends, no gatherings, none of this and of that.... so it is all about what we cook and what we eat at home... LOL.... 

Yesterday I just cook one dish, yes, I cook dhall again, I opened a new packet of Australian dhall.  This time I soaked it and then blended it manually.  I have this small gadget whereby I can dice my onions, garlic and whatever need to be diced.  It is so useful and I don't know why I have kept it for so long until only recently I took it out and used.  I couldn't even remember who gave it to me!  Or perhaps it was a free gift... not sure, next time I will show it in a post.  All I have to do is to pull the string and the dicing will be done after a few pulls.  I bet some of you know what gadget I am talking about... LOL... 

Coming back to my dhall, this time I used french beans.  Why french beans?  Cos I have a full one kilo of them, bought from the market which cost only RM3!  I wanted less but the lady said take one kilo la, only RM3!  Imagine one kilo of french beans, I have to eat how many rounds of that.... LOL... Bought a packet of fresh santan and I cook this pot of vegetable using dhall, kaffir leaves, curry leaves, dry chilli, carrots, ginger, tumeric powder, cinnamon stick and lemon.  

I cooked the potatoes first before ending in the other greens last.... 
This time it was less spicy... and more thickened in gravy....
I can just drink the soup cos it is sourish and a bit spicy.... 
My neighbour gave me a plate of her Ju Hu Char...
My favourite dish!
My lunch.... 
And for dinner, my neighbour gave me a plate of glass noodles...
So nice of her.... 
Looks like it was a vegetarian dinner... 
The smaller bowl is Acar from Pantai Remis...
All vegetables... but I really don't mind the varieties!

  1. We had a dish like that today, Friday - our no-meat day but we fried one ikan bawal hitam and had them together with rice.

  2. I love your lunch with your own cooked dhall! Looks better than the ones I am having now. Love that you are eating more vegetables. More fiber! Why the French beans are so affordable! Only rm3 for 1 kg, what a good deal!

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
