Lontong Sayur Lodeh/Mix Vegetable in Coconut Broth

I love most Malay food like nasi lemak, mee rebus, mee siam, mee soto and the list goes on...but Lontong is the last choice that comes into my mind >.< I rarely order this dish as I do not like the cold compressed rice, moreover I cannot find a decent one around my vicinity. But I could not resist my homecooked Sayur Lodeh without the nasi impit of course! hehehe...

It is such a fuss free dish to prepare! Just blend the spices and fry till fragrant then add in all the vegetable. In less than 30 mins a pot of wholesome curry vegetable is ready! Love drenching the gravy with my plate of hot rice....slurp!
