Tested some recipes from Azlin's blog

I am planning a south east Asian inspired dinner party for some friends. So I gave some of the recipes a test run to get an idea how they will taste. I didn't want to waste time searching for recipes on the internet so I asked Azlin's for some suggestions. Who could be more reliable person than her? She is a chef, culinary instructor, food writer, specializes in many cuisines and I knew South east Asian is one of her favorites.

As I had most of the ingredients at home so I tried these recipes last night and had them for dinner.

Vegan Vietnamese tofu eggplant - I tried both ways - with and without bean sauce.

Sour Eurasian Chicken Curry - made this without salted beans

Vegan coconut curry - didn't make any changes

Thanks for the recipes +Azlin Bloor . They are wonderful and I'll be making vegan tofu and the coconut curry for the party.

Here are the links to the recipes

Indonesian Fish Curry / Gulai Ikan Karang

This deliciously fragrant Indonesian fish curry is very convenient to cook on a weeknight. Its big on flavor yet light and healthy. All you need to do is make some spice paste then use it for both the marinade and the coconut curry. It doubles up on flavor while keeping the cook time to a minimum.

Ingredients
1kg snapper fillet, cut into 4-6 pieces
1 lemongrass, smashed
25 g tamarind
400 ml coconut milk
Salt to taste
2 tbsp Lemon juice
Spice paste
250 g shallots, halved
3-4 garlic cloves
3 cm fresh turmeric or 3/4 tsp turmeric powder
10 thai red chillies, more for garnish (if desired)
big handful of fresh thai basil leaves, more for garnish (originally laksa leaves are used)
2 tbsp canola oil (divided)

Instructions

Pat the fish fillets dry and rub a little salt and lemon juice. Set aside.

Soak tamarind in 1/2 cup hot water for 10 min. Mix it together and strain through a fine sieve. Throw away the pulp and use the liquid.

Place halved shallots and garlic cloves in dry skillet over medium-high heat. Dry roast turning often, about 5 to 8 minutes, or until shallots and cloves are golden brown with spots of dark.

In a blender, blend charred shallots, garlic, thai red chilies, fresh turmeric, and basil leaves. Use 1 tbsp canola oil and 2 tbsp tamarind water to help achieve a smooth consistency.

Line a baking sheet with foil. Apply 2-3 tsp paste on each fish piece.
Bake in 400° oven for 10 minutes or until evenly cooked.

Set the oven to broiler setting. Broil for 1-2 minute or till you achieve the desired charred look (Please keep an eye as every oven is different and too much broil will burn the fish).

Now, heat 1 tbsp canola oil in a work over a medium heat.
Throw in the smashed lemongrass stalk and spice paste, fry till aromatic
Add tamarind liquid, salt and 1/2 cup water. Give it all a good stir.

Simmer on medium heat for 1 minute before adding coconut milk.

To serve ladle curry in the bowl. Arrange fish pieces. Garnish with red thai chili and basil leaves.

Coconut Ladoo

In India, sweets are an integral part of all festivals and auspicious occasions. I simply can’t ignore their importance even though I am no longer eating sweets as I used to do earlier. I made these ladoos last year to take to work and everyone loved it.

Ingredients

3 cups unsweetened shredded coconut
300 ml sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp green cardamom powder or 2 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup finely ground coconut
1-2 tbsp. coarsely ground pistachio

Instructions

Place condensed milk, cardamom powder or vanilla extract and coconut milk in a pan on medium heat.
Cook stirring the mixture for 4-8 minutes until the mixture becomes thick (time depends on the amount of heat you are using and type of pan.
Cool 5 minutes. Grease your palms. Using a tablespoon measure, roll the mixture into uniform ball shapes.
Roll each ladoo in coarsely ground pistachios and place them on a tray to completely cool down and harden a bit.
Transfer to an airtight container. These can be stored at room temperature for up to 10 days.
