It is so easy to cook a lovely mixed vegetable curry using the Thermal Cooker.  The difference is only water, add less water compared to cooking in a normal wok.
The curry is thick, aromatic and tasty.  The vegetables are soft but not soggy.  It stays warm in the pot for several hours. Nice.  
Curry Paste [Blended and Mix with powdered ingredients]
4 red chillies
10 dried chillies - soaked
3 lemongrass
5 candlenuts [buah keras]
100 gm shallots [optional]
3 tbsp meat curry powder
2-3 tsp mixed halba
1 tbsp coriander powder
1/2 tbsp tumeric powder
4-5 tbsp cooking oil
250 gm cabbage - washed and break into pieces
1 carrot - peeled and cut wedges
1 eggplant - washed and cut thick wedges

some kaffir lime leaves - optional for garnishing
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp sugar

Kimmy, this vegetable curry is delicious. I can see that the spice paste ingredients are full of flavors and aroma. Can just eat this alone with rice.

Hi Phong Hong, this curry is delicious and it is so easy to cook with the thermal cooker pot. I'm not afraid that the spice paste will be burnt without constant stirring. I just cooked a Pandan Curry Chicken yesterday, it was easy and good too.
