Recipe: Indonesian Prawn Curry (印尼咖喱虾)

Don’t be deceived by its name, this Indonesian Prawn Curry 印尼咖喱虾 does not refer to the origin of the seafood but rather the taste. This is a very popular dish in Malaysia and during our recent visit to Ipoh, Perak, I got to try this dish for the first time.  It tasted amazing and what I liked about this curry is I believed the restaurant used soya bean milk instead of coconut milk.  In my opinion, this is a much healthier dish. As I am always on a lookout for new dishes to share with our readers, this was definitely one of the dishes that I could not wait to recreate in my kitchen.

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: Assam Prawns/Tamarind Prawns

Recently, I have been embarking on a journey of sharing some easy dishes due to the request of one of my friends who is residing in New Zealand. Check out our blog for more delicious and simple dishes to prepare. Nyonya dishes are commonly known for the cumbersome preparations and involving loads of ingredients but not for the Assam prawns. It is considered to be one of the simplest dish to cook.  However, I have decided to cook this dish in a slightly different way as I personally prefer to have gravy or sauces for my dishes.  Hmm…. so, is this dish still classified under Nyonya cuisine?? The prawns cooked in this manner are succulent and infused with the sour-ish tamarind sauce which makes it amazingly appetizing. As this dish is cooked best with the prawn shells on, I had to “painstakingly” use a pair of scissors to cut through the top of shell and devein the prawns so that the seasoning can seep into it. The best part of it all? Using your fingers …
