Leftovers are not necessarily a bad thing especially when it comes to curry, stews and soups. I find that their flavours tend to be a little moore integrated given the extra time for them to come together.
Returning home to dinner after a long day at work and seeing this bubbling pot of leftover mala steamboat (now also known as "battleship") made moo one very happy cow. Moohehe.
Cheers to yummy leftovers!
Chew On This: Spongy tofu and luncheon meat are especially good at soaking up all that flavour when cooked and left immersed in the leftover mala over time.
