As with cooking, this is only an estimation of the ingredients. Please adjust it to your taste.

Recipe for Mock Mutton Curry

About 300g mock mutton
About one or two potatoes (cut into desired size)
two tomatoes (diced - or you can use about 2 tbsp of tomato puree)
1 onion (sliced)
2 chillies (sliced)
2 tsp of garlic paste
2 tsp of ginger paste
a stick of cinnamon
2 star anise
1 tsp of cumin
2 tbsp of meat curry powder (I use baba's)
2 tsp to 1 tbsp chilli powder (I also use baba's)
1/4 tsp of tumeric powder (optional)
3 to 4 tbsp of milk (coconut milk/ground cashewnuts/almonds/candlenuts can be substituted)
2 cups or more water depending on how much gravy you want
Salt to taste
Some oil for saut?ing

Method:

1. Saute the cinnamon, stir anise and cumin in the oil. Once fragrant, add onion and chilli. Saute until golden and soft. Add the garlic and ginger paste.
2. In a bowl, mix the powders with a little water to make a paste.
3. Add the tomatoes and spice paste into the pan and continue to cook it until the tomatoes have disintegrated and the paste is cooked.
4. Add the potatoes and water and cook until the potatoes are nearly done.
5. Add the mock meat and cook until done.
6. Adjust with salt and add the milk to decide on the level of richness you want. Bring to a slight boil before turning off the stove.

Notes:

1) To reduce spiciness, cut back on the chilli powder.
2) To make a thick gravy, reduce the amount of water added in step 4.
3) If real meat is being used, increase the ginger and garlic paste to counter the meaty smell and taste. I suggest curry powder can also be increased a little.
4) If nuts are used to thicken the gravy, remember to grind it up with some water.

Hi Halimah
Thanks for posting this recipe. It looks delicious.
If you are into vegetarian meat, try the frozen fish slices too. They taste nice made into sambal.

Hi Gina, can get it from vegetarian shops.. I think i got the mock mutton from Giant (at IMM)

I heard that there is one in Toa Payoh.. suppose to be quite cheap but off hand don't have the address. Been there once before, quite a lot of variety.

Hi Halimah
I'm 70% vegetarian, so like to experiment wt these vegetarian products to see whether they will taste good done as the meat dish.
Will post the mock fish sambal recipe soon. Try making rendang wt the mock mutton. They taste delicious.

I usually get my vegetarian products from the indian spice shop as they have a freezer where they store them. They cost abt $3.50 for a 250g packet.
