Golden Fragrant Prawns 金香蝦碌
After spending all morning washing and cleaning, I decided to cook a nice lunch to reward myself. I found some prawns in the fridge and I knew exactly what I was going to cook. This is adapted from Aunty Cheah's Kam Heong Lala, do have a look at her original recipe and other delicious offerings at her blog - No-Frills Recipes.
P.S My curry tree is doing extremely well at the moment and I know exactly what I will be cooking next so stay tuned! Have you noticed how clean the frying pan is?
serves 2 as part of a Chinese meal
5 cm piece of ginger, chopped
1 long red chili, chopped
1 long green chili, chopped
3 bird chillies, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 shallots, chopped
30 curry leaves
2 tbs of bean paste (I used Yeo's)
2 tbs of oyster sauce
1 tbs of sugar
3 tbs of water
black pepper to taste
Roughly chop the wet ingredients.
Pan fry prawns with 2 tbs of oil til golden, remove and set aside.
Saute chopped ingredients with a little oil for a minute then add in the curry leaves and continue to cook for 30 seconds. Add seasonings and water and cook for another 30 seconds on high heat.
Return prawns to the pan, mix well and cook for another minute.
Serve immediately with plenty of steamed rice.
