in an homage to this recipe i made something similar last night..

trying to be balinese Lawar, except i didn't have some essential ingredients.. a la pig's blood. and i wanted tempeh but only had haloumi so...

i made a flour/indian curry powder/chilli mixture and crumbed the haloumi with it, and fried it up.. mixed with fresh green beans/spring onions/sesame seeds and a soy/fish sauce & lime dressings mmmm

eurasian wrongness!
