Vegetarian Curry Laksa - Guest Post @ Notabilia




Those who have been reading my blog may be aware that I have a sister who decided to become a vegetarian when she came back from her first trip to India some 10 years ago. The family was initially shocked by her sudden conversion and I admit at one point, I had wondered if she had been hypnotised and  brain washed by some religious cult group in India.... As time went by, she continued to stick to her conviction and we came to accept her choice and stopped questioning her. Although, at times, I have to admit she still gets on my nerves when she righteously suggests that I should do all my baking with molasses and wholewheat flour... Anyway... so when Pooja of Notabilia contacted me to ask if I could do a local vegetarian dish for her blog, I was not altogether at a loss because eating out with my vegetarian sister has exposed me to a myriad of local dishes from vegetarian indian 'mutton' dum briyani to vegetarian 'minced meat' noodles to vegetarian curry 'fish head'... yes, it is definitely much more interesting to be a vegetarian here in Singapore.

Laksa is easily my favourite local dish. Filled with rich, beautiful spices and spiked with coconut milk, this curry laksa (to differentiate it more the more tangy Penang Assam Laksa) , has remained the favourite noodle dish of many here. Hop over to Notabilia to find out how my vegetarian version turns out.

I love laksa, vegetarian or not. :) Yours looks really good! Ermm....but with quails eggs is considered vegetarian? No matter! Scoop me a big bowl please! ;)

I have not made laksa from scratch before. I usually cheat with Prima Taste and now worse, that even come with noodle + premix packs that really save me a lot of time, especially when overseas.

vegetarian version of curry lakso, sound healthy and less guilty ^_^

Shirley @ Kokken69 said...

@ Sonia, no lah, it is not healthier or more guilt free. Equally oily, just no meat or seafood.

I have a cousin who turned vegetarian after she know her boyfriend (now hubby). Now my aunt also became one, it took us a year or two to get accustomed while dining with them.
