Country: M for Malaysia
Dish: Vegetarian Malaysian Curry with Coconut Milk
We are going to the Malaysia today. It is located in Southeast Asia. The country is multi-ethnic and multi-cultural. The population can be broadly divided into 3 ethnic groups: Malays, Chinese & Indian. Most of the Malaysian dishes have strong influences of all these countries.
Then I found another Malaysian curry recipe that was slightly different from my friend’s version. I double checked with my friend and after getting her nod of approval, I made this curry with freshly made curry paste and coconut milk.
Difference between Indian & Malaysian curries is that the veggies are cooked till fork tender and never over-cooked in Malaysian curries. Also what I found was the tang factor missing, there are no tomatoes or tamarind in the curry. But all in all this is a delicious curry that is best served with steamed rice.
