N started traveling again for his job and I am trying to put A back into routine, with mom and brother visiting the last 3 months and N working from home the last few weeks. A's bedtime has been greatly affected, he was having so much fun playing with everybody that he fights his sleep every night until much later. It is really not to my liking, I am at the opinion that toddler should go to bed around the latest 8.00 pm, he has been pushing it to 9.30-10.00 pm almost every night!
I started putting him earlier to be the last two days, it was tough as he protest and will do everything he could to stay awake when I brought him into bed. I guess I just have to persist and keep trying!
So coming back to this curry that I am posting today. It has been long time since I last cook Malaysian Curry, the reason mainly due to that some of the essential ingredients, especially the fresh herbs are not easily available. Even if I do find them, they are scattered in different Asian supermarkets around town that I have to make various shopping trips to gathered them all.
One day last week I was browsing on the internet and bumped into a Malaysian blog post that explained if you simmered the curry powder slowly until the oil breaks, a very tasty curry can be produced with having to add so many types of fresh herbs! I mentally noted the cooking method and prepared the curry the next day.
It was indeed really delicious and taste even better the day after!
