Recently, in many Taiwan food blogs, there's this fad of coconut curry hot pot...rather than heading out for it, I asked Buddha Boy to try making it at home...this was also to prepare for our first "home" event coming up in two weeks...hehehehe!
Simple chicken stock base on the left with Buddha Boy's coconut curry base on the right. Actually, we had hot pot two days in a row. The curry base on the first night was a bit bland. It had a good fragrance from the lemongrass and the lime leaves, but it was lacking the flavors of curry and coconut milk. With minor tweaks, Buddha Boy's curry base on day-two was better.
Since I couldn't find any seafood at home, I decided to open up one of MomJ's cans of Abalone (鮑魚)...hahahaha! Yea...I am not a big fan of these luxury items, but once a while, I don't mind...hahahahaha!
