Notes

The island nation of Singapore has a wonderful culinary blend, from Chinese, Eurasian, Indian, Malay to Nonja food. The following dish is a vegetarian dish, but you don't have to be a vegetarian to enjoy it.

The source of this recipe is "Singapore Food" by Wendy Hutton, which we purchased while in Singapore.
