When I saw wokkingmum’s curry vegetables, it set off an instant craving for curry vegetables (咖喱菜). I cooked a huge pot of curry vegetables that very same weekend and I served it with fried bee hoon for lunch and heated up the leftover curry for dinner to eat with rice. I love to cook two-in-one meals like this on weekends because much as I love to cook, I don’t wish to slave the whole weekend away in the kitchen. I love lontong too so I added some steamed rice cakes to my curry vegetables for faux lontong. This is a really yummy and fun recipe to try on a weekend.
