Home Cook Sambal Prawns

While am grounded for home cook food and can’t have any outside food, mom cooked something to lure me. And guess what’s that? Sambal Prawns!

Well, I do admit am not really a fan of prawns, but how could she do something to lure me, right?? [LOL] Anyway, since I can’t have outside food for sometime, might as well starts something like Home Cook Food Series before I lost touch on blogging.

Ok, as far as I know mom never like the smell of sambal. And I remembered she told me once the process of sambal is kind of unhygienic thus she hardly cook anything with sambal for the family.

So, I was kind of curious where did she get herself the sambal? And guess what? It’s now getting very convenient for all people, that wet market do sell sambal. She said it’s in a small container and it’s only sell less than RM3 or RM4.

A cook like her that had cooked for the family for more than 30 years, at times, she’s really running out of idea what to cook. Thus, this came into her mind when she was doing her marketing in one of the morning.

To cut it short, she will first stir fry the pre-cook sambal till fragrant and add on the prawns into it and blend well with it.

To make it more colourful and tasty, she added some curry leaves to make this dish more aromatic. Of course, a bit of sugar and salt add to taste too.

This dish looks oily, as you need a few table spoons of oil to cook the sambal, otherwise, it will be burned. Once burned, you will taste bitter, which it will not make this dish tasty. That’s what we need to take note on that.

Will these prawns lure you? [smile]
