I make a terrible Nyonya and even more horrible photographer. I lack skill and flair needed for both, but I certainly have a few tricks up my sleeves. I’ve gotten my hands on some gigantic prawn recently, and it was almost as big as my palm, and I decided that there’s no better way to enjoy it than make a ‘sambal tumis’ for it and have it with plain rice along with a shrimp omelet.
Here’s the recipe for my sambal tumis prawn:
1 whole onion, sliced thickly/thinly according to taste
3 tablespoon of chilli boh
1 tablespoon of chilli sauce
2 tablespoon of tomato sauce
3 spoonful of tamarind juice
Salt to taste
It’s very easy to cook. Simply sautÃ© the sliced onions with the chilli boh, chilli sauce, tomato sauce and tamarind juice til fragrant, add some salt to taste and water along with the prawn and cook til it sizzles. Simple, no? Well, I’m not much of a cook, so if I can do it, so can you!
Cleffairy: I love to keep my cooking as simple as possible. First it’s because I’m bad at it, and second is because life is complicated enough, so why complicate cookings? After all, the best things in life are simple. 😀
