(Weekend’s Delicatessen) : Spicy Curry on Veggie Bed


If I have got much time, and mood, I’ll try to cook something. The laziest one is merely cooking instant noodles (my favourites are Indomie and Supermie, while the rest…I don’t care), but when my cooking God possesed me, I can create more difficult level of cooking. However, there’s no any oven for creating cakes. I ever made doughnuts and for me the most delicious one is potato doughnuts, as it tastes sweet and savoury at the same time and surely it’s cheaper than doughnuts made of pure wheat flour.

For this week’s delicatessen, what I remember is recreating my favourite dish…chicken curry. It’s surely high in fat and cholesterol, as it’s rich of taste and use coconut milik (but you can replace it with candle nut powder instead). For make it more healthier, I just change rice into several kinds of veggies and I call it veggie bed for reducing fat hehehe…

Here I share my silly recipe for you.
