Yuan Xiang Vegetarian Food

We have recently found a vegetarian food 煮炒 ("zi char") stall in Ang Mo Kio. When we first went there, it was in Blk 223F Ang Mo Kio Ave 1, but they have just moved to Blk 232 ~ not too far...

This is one of the few places we can find vegetarian satay

Dumpling soup

My DD simply loves hor fun

Mock fish with ginger and bean sauce. Really, the ginger made this dish - it was crispy fried and I loved it.

Zhen Ji Vegetarian

One of my favorite quick lunches is at the market food centre at Holland Drive (near the junction of Buona Vista Road and Commonwealth Ave). This is a stall that is famous for its vegetarian bee hoon. Recently, I also tried the vegetarian chicken rice, and it was also very good!

some chopped ginger
1 tablespoon oil (for frying)

1 tablespoon of corn starch
1 piece of tau kwa (or tofu)*

3. pour in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil

Daawat Tandoori

Having passed by the restaurant every day, it was only yesterday that we finally decided ot go in and give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised by the great food :-)

We had the vegetarian set meal, which has briyani rice and a naan (choice of plain, garlic or butter), 3 side dishes (of which one is a dal) and a raita. The dishes were really good! Finally, there is dessert and coffee/tea ~ you can change the beverage to a soft drink, but I got the tea, and enjoyed it.

Open Daily, 11am - 11pm

Soy Pancakes ~ no eggs!

I started making soy pancakes because of a desire to reduce carbohydrate intake. They turn out really fluffy and tasty. I initially tried to make these using solely soy flour, but that didn't work at all ~ try it and you will see! I do not use eggs, and have also liked it with bananas and cinnamon.

Dry ingredients:
1 1/2 cup soy flour
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 tsp sugar (to taste)
dash of salt
dash of cinnamon (to taste, optional)
1/2 tsp baking powder
Wet ingredients:
2 cups milk
1/2 cup water
1 tsp oil
1 banana

a) mix together the dry ingredients.
b) mix in the wet ingredients and stir/whisk.
c) heat pan on the stove.
d) use a ladle to spoon batter onto the pan, spreading it out to desired thickness.
e) cook for 1 minute (may vary depending on your flame)
f) flip over and cook for another minute (may vary depending on your flame)
