Vegetarian Curry Rice

22 April 2008

Both my parents are vegetarians, or to be more specific, lacto-ovo vegetarians, who can eat eggs and dairy products. As they are buddhists, they are not allowed to take 五荤 (Five Acrid And Strong Smelling Vegetables) or 五辛 (Five Spices), which generally refers to onion, garlic, chives, shallot and leek.

In order to make their meals more interesting and appetising, I will occasionally look for recipes from the internet. I recently found a very good vegetarian recipe blog from Singapore, The Modern VEGETARIAN Recipes. It has many vegetarian recipes very suitable local Singaporeans. The blog is also constantly updating, you can always expect new recipes coming up. It's worth a visit for simple home-cooked meals even if you are not a vegetarian.

Some recipes are very simple to cook like this one that we have tried, the One-Pot Curry Rice. Like what the author says "not much work is required and can be ready in just a moment." You simply put all the ingredients into the rice cooker, turn it on, and it will be ready in just a moment.

Maybe I should try and whip up a meal for them in the future. Paiseh (*embarrassed*), so old already, still not able to cook a proper meal for them. Haha... SSB must learn how to cook! :)
