Tonight we had only 2 dishes for dinner. I was busy preparing the filling for tomorrow's popiah lunch, I had barely enough time to make dinner. Preparing popiah ingredients can be rather labourious. I spent an hour cutting turnip, bamboo shoot and carrot into tiny strips the size of toothpicks before stewing them all together in a pot. I've got more work to do tomorrow morning, so I did the most tedious part today.
While I was at it,I decided to make another kind of spring roll for dinner. This is much easier. I cooked the filling using shredded cabbage and carrot, chicken meat, dried shrimps and garlic. YK wrapped the mixture in spring roll sheet before popping them into the fryer. The freshy cooked ones are crispy and yummy!
The other dish I made was fish curry using curry paste, fish steaks, fresh prawns, tomato and coconut milk. It's just about the fastest curry dish I had ever cooked. I'm glad it turned out pretty tasty.
Even though there were only 2 dishes, we had lots of leftovers which we saved for CH who came by later as he was working late. With an appreciative diner like him around, nothing goes to waste.
