Chicken Curry - Egg Salad - Veggie StirFry
Initially I was planning to make Roti Kirai to go along with the dishes - but somehow,...I became too lazy to cook anymore...So I ended up eating these with plain rice and bread...hey!...that's fine too!,..and who said that we can't succumb to laziness?......hehe..
Use this recipe for any kind of veggie stirfry..u won't go wrong..just remember never to overcook the vegg. For this, I used celery, carrots, mushrooms, capsicum, broccoli, and u can add anything u want,...just make it colourful.
The Chicken Curry:
U can use my Ayam Kariana for this recipe...mmm..thick and spicy..
For the egg salad with peanut sauce :
Hard-boiled eggs - sliced neatly with an egg-slicer
Cucumber - skinned, raked with fork and sliced thickly
Tomatoes - sliced thickly
Onions - sliced into rings
Some lettuce/daun salad
The Peanut Sauce
12 dried chillies - soaked to soften
2 cloves of garlic
Grind the above till fine

1/2 cup water

1/2 to 3/4 cup of coursely ground-roasted-skinned peanuts
