As promised I am now showing you what I cooked for our reunion dinner :) Nothing elaborate .Buttered prawns was one of the dishes I cooked up for the Piggies. Prawn is a must have item for the reunion dinner ...ask any chinese they will tell you it means laughter literally translated from the cantonese word ' har ' so hee hee har har - laughter in the house all the year thru...I have you laughing now ? ...heehee haha. Laughter can be infectious :)) Daddy can be very westernized but when it comes to chinese tradition and culture.....he does want to follow some to the T :p
For me, I don't know much about the chinese culture and tradition..I am a yellow banana. I only know how to cook and bake LOL! Back to this dish...it is easy to prepare ..it is the ingredients that makes it delicious. The butter , curry powder and curry leaves gives fragrant to the dish. These ingredients compliment the prawns well and make the dish a wonderful and mouth watering one :))
first fry the prawns with shell on with a dollop of butter till crispy
so fragrant...I love the aroma of the prawn as it is being fried
in the wok.............mmmmmmmm mouth-watering indeed
add in the curry leaves, garlic and chopped chilli and stir fry till fragrant
add in the beaten eggs slowly and keep stirring till the eggs threads are crispy
Add in curry powder last and sprinkle some sugar. Dish up and serve hot.
Simple and easy to prepare rite ? :))
