Fragrant Combination of Spices And Flavour All In One Dish

For this dish, we are using homemade vegetarian Kam Heong sauce from the previous recipe (see recipe link here). With the combinations of vegetarian dried shrimps, chilli, curry powder and curry leaves in this Kam Heong sauce, it gives this vegetarian dish such great flavours and aroma. Definitely a favourite dish for vegetarians who enjoy gourmet vegetarian recipes.

If you’re planning to make your own vegetarian meat instead of using store bought ones, do refer to our other recipe here. Surely a tastier and healthier option too.

This flavourful dish goes perfectly with steamed rice and makes a great one dish meal as well.
