    Velan's Cuisine Extraordinaire



    Have suddenly found back my passion for cooking after a few years.
    I was posting photos on my Facebook and started getting queries on recipes. This thread is to keep everything in one place.

    Most of my cooking is influenced by my mother, therefore expect a lot of Malaysianised Indian food as well as other fusion food.

    Thank you for visiting.

    Nasi Lemak - Rice cooked in coconut milk

    Cook rice with coconut milk, ginger, salt and pandan leaves.
    There are more complex methods, but this is how I make.

    Tauhu sambal (vegetarian)

    Tauhu - Deep fry but not completely brown and hard. Just for a while in hot oil would do.




    Pound some garlic and fry in a little oil, add liberal amount of sliced onion. Cook till you get the fragrance. Add ground dried chilly (no short cuts on this please. Soak dried chilly in warm water and grind.) and cook over low flame.
    Remember that the longer you cook, the longer it will last.
    Once the smell of raw chilly is gone, add cut tomato & onion rings. Continue cooking.
    Add a little coconut milk and a little sugar. Add salt last.
    Bring to boil before adding the fried tauhu.

    Chilli Potato


    Boil cut potatoes before deep frying them lightly.
    No salt need to be added at this stage.




    Fry ginger-garlic paste and sliced onion. Add the cooked potatoes.
    Add chilly powder and salt. Coat nicely. Sprinkle water now and then. Cook until the chilly powder is cooked.

    Mixed Vegetables




    There are so many ways of doing this.
    Tip 1 - use plenty of garlic slices. Do not burn the garlic or it will taste bitter.
    Tip 2 - add a little sugar if you want the vegetables to retain their color.
    Tip 3- Use only little water. Use a cover and let the vegetable cook in their own steam.

    Yam fritters



    Yam Fritters
    I mix white wheat and rice flours so that it will be crispy. Just using wheat flour will be tastier but bulkier.
    Add a spoon or two of corn oil to the batter and beat nicely. Don't forget the salt.
