Soy Made Chicken Rendang...♥

It's 1st semester school break this week...Rishie is home, and Ashika is just so happy that her only brother is around to play with her. She'd always whine when Rishie gets down from the car to school every morning. Whether she likes him to be home or not, for sure she liked to fight with him. Hehehe kids...*sigh!

You may be seeing some vegan style dishes on my site lately. That's because I'm being one for 1 month and successfully finished 2 weeks now. I'd still prefer my dishes to be a little spicy...:)

Never liked soy made chicken, but this particular brand at Tesco changed my perception. It is Greenfarm's Crispy G. So good to munch on it right after deep fried. Suggest this dish for vegans. Actually anyone can have it. Try with soy made lamb chunks too.

Ingredients :~
  • 1 pack soy made chicken chunks ~ deep fried in oil
  • 1/2  inch fresh turmeric *
  • 1/2 inch ginger *
  • 3 shallots *
  • 3 cloves garlic *
  • 1 medium sized onion *
  • 2 stalks lemongrass *
  • 3 - 4 tbsp dried chilli paste
  • 1 pc tamarind pulp
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • 3 kaffir lime leaves ~ shredded OR turmeric leaves
  • 2 tbsp coconut paste (kerisik)
  • 1 cup water or less for thick gravy
  • salt
  • oil

Method :~
  1. Blend together ingredients marked * until it forms a paste.
  2. Saute the blended ingredients and dried chilli paste in oil for 10 - 15 minutes or until oil parts. The rendang tastes better when it's stirred longer. 
  3. Add coconut milk, water, tamarind pulp and salt. Allow gravy to boil a few times. 
  4. Add coconut paste and stir.
  5. Lastly, add the fried soy made chicken chunks and shredded kaffir lime leaves. Mix evenly and dish out. Serve hot :)

    Don't feel guilty, you're not gonna have heavy curry all the time, don't you?
    I'm going for second serving, what about you? ^___^

    24. Hi Love to Cook,

      May I know if cream cheese is considered as vegan food as well? Eg, chilled oreo cheesecake, with just whipping cream, cream cheese and halalgel powder.


      1. Hi Sally, from what I know...cream cheese are suitable for vegetarians but not for vegans as they do not consume dairy products such as egg or cheese or any substances from animal. And gelatine is a substance that is derived from collagen inside animal bones. So its not for vegans.

        I hope this link will brief u more

    30. Hi Love,

      Thanks for the clarification. I appreciate it very much. Was contemplating making chilled oreo cheesecake for my granny who is vegetarian, but I will skip that since it contains gelatin.

      Sorry to keep calling you love, I don't know your name :).
