Man, pete, you have no idea how much your blog will help me improve my knowledge in vegetarian recipe. you're a life saver. All hail Pete! long live Pete!

Neway, I think I'm gonna try the vegetarian knowledge in vegetarian curry is limited to reheating the pre-packed vegetarian assam fish, I'm afraid. :-(

ohh...i notice that your recipe contains onions...I'm going to have to omit that because my mom outlaw cannot eat it...she's er...dunno what kind of vegetarian... :-P

Pete said...

Cleff : You can take away the onion but you will need to add a little bit of sugar(1/2 teaspoon) to replace the sweetness of the onions. Most Chinese Vegan do not eat onions and garlic as they are said to be 'simulating'. But no effect on me lah, I am still young! Ha Ha

Mmmm, Vegan Assam fish, maybe I will try to cook this up the next time.... kunyit, buah keras, chili, assam jawa, will work on the recipe.....
