Salam, Kia Ora....

It has been hot and muggy these past few days.  The highs has only been in the range of 24 deg to 29 deg C but the afternoon sun is really, really hot.  It feels like a hot sauna whenever I'm inside the house.  It's ok outside bcos of the windy breeze but with the high UV warnings, I couldnt be bothered to stay outdoor.  If I were to leave the door open, there'll uninvited flying visitors coming  into the house.  Yes, I'm talking abt flies...yucks and its those nasty, big, green blow flies bcos of the sheep paddock just in front of our house.....yikkkeeesss

My mojo still hasn't come back to me...hhhmmmzz.  Haven't got any idea what to cook for dinner last night.  As I was sighing, pondering, wondering, thinking on what to cook, an idea light bulb suddenly pops out of no where and I managed to come out with this 'nonsensical' recipe.  I just grabbed anything and everything from the pantry and just dumped them into the wok....hehehez.  Please be warned that all ingredients are in estimation, I couldn't even be bothered to measure them ;).  Somehow or rather, the dish kinda remind me of vindaloo.....that's why I've decided to name it vindaloo.  I've never cooked vindaloo in my life, eaten it a couple of times.  So, this is vindaloo with my own twist :D
