3 Delicious Vegan Raya Recipes You Should Try!

Selamat Hari Raya!

Eid is celebrated for a whole month which means open houses and stuffing our faces with delicious Raya foods are still on going. This is my second year celebrating Eid as a vegan and no – I did not spend it eating just rice and leafy greens. I dominated my palette with never ending rendang, lemang, lontong, curry and more! I also managed to munch on cruelty free cookies at people’s open houses. 

Whoever said being vegan is clearly boring and didn’t know how to eat like a true vegan foodie!

Why not try these vegan raya recipes to have a very green Hari Raya for your waist line, wallet and the Earth!

  • 4 x shallots
  • 2 tablespoon of chopped garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon of chopped ginger
  • 2 whole candle nuts
  • 1/4 cup of soaked Dried chillis
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped bird-eye chilli

  • Dash of salt and black pepper for seasoning

  1. Blend the shallots, garlic, ginger, candle nuts, dried chillis, chopped lemongrass and ginger until they become very fine into a paste.
  2. On the stove, cook the blended ingredients with oil until the aroma releases into the room in a pot. On a separate pan, stir fry the chopped tofu pieces until they become golden brown with oil.
  3. Mix and stir the tofu into the pot of cooked blended ingredients. When mixed well, pour in 1 cup of coconut milk with toasted coconut paste, brown sugar, chopped birdeye chilli, and whole lemongrass. Leave to simmer for 8 to 10 minutes until the coconut paste has melted into the liquid and lemongrass has softened. Pour in water to adjust consistency of the liquid until satisfied.
  4. Add seasoning for taste before taking the pot off the stove.
