Recipe: Laksa Prawn Pancake

Recently, my mum was in hospital for 3 weeks. Having to visit her in the hospital almost every day caused me to stop cooking for the family. Eating out all the time was very daunting for my family and I, so since it was a weekend night and I was not visiting mum, I thought it will be great to whip up at least one or two homecooked dishes for my family. I was delighted that once again that I was able to create this quick and easy Laksa Prawn Pancake for the family using Dancing Chef’s Laksa Paste. The laksa paste indeed added a twist to the normal prawn pancake that I usually cook. It added an extra oomph to the pancake!!

Recipe: “Din Tai Fung” Style Prawn Pancake (脆皮虾饼)

Recently, I have been experimenting on how to make this crispy Prawn Pancake like Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐). Coincidentally, when I was in Miri last week, I saw this exact pancake being made by a chef from China on one of the TV channels. This gave me a motivation to try it again and off I went! I made this again last night and the taste was great but sadly I didn’t succeed in making it crispy. After so many failed attempts to emulate the DTF Crispy Pancake, we (my family) decided to do a post mortem on why the prawn pancake failed to be crispy. Our conclusion was I added more prawn paste and so the skin has more moisture, whereas DTF’s layer of prawn paste is much thinner. Oh well, we enjoyed this prawn pancake which I have made so we’re sharing it with our fans. Hope you like it too!!
