The other day I bought some prawns and was in an experimental mood. The first thought that crossed my mind was Malay cusine. The only hitch was to search for a recipe that didn’t require lime leaves or lemon grass or shrimp paste. Thankfully, I didn’t have to look for long. Found an ideal recipe but was confused by the name. I had to double check on google to ensure that it was indeed an authentic Malay dish.

The best part of Malay cuisine is that it has a lot of similarity to South Indian preparation. This dish is served with egg floss in some parts of Malaysia. Those looking to prepare “something different” should give this a go. Ideally this dish should be consumed hot to experience the crunchiness of the prawns.
