Butter Prawn Recipe

Here's the recipe:

Ingredients (for four to five people):

1. Prawn - 500 grams - Keep shell intact but slit the back and remove the black thread

2. Cooking Oil - 1/2 cup

3. Egg Yolk - 4 to 5 eggs - Beaten (Hint: you can use the egg white to stir fry vegetables with)

4. Butter - 2 to 3 tablespoons

5. Fresh Curry Leaves - 2 to 3 sprigs - Chopped

6. Bird's Eye Chillies - 5 to 6 pieces - Chopped and if you prefer, deseeded

7. Sugar - 1 tablespoon

8. Salt - to taste (I usually use minimally)


1. Heat cooking oil

2. Half-fry prawn, remove and dry

3. Remove used cooking oil

3. Heat butter

4. Pour egg yolk slowly from a high position and keep stirring (Hint: This is the hardest part.)

5. Add in curry leaves, chillies, sugar and salt

6. Add in half-fried prawn and mix with the rest of the ingredients

It's that easy. By the way, the prawn is the key to the dish. So the fresher the prawn, the better. And one more thing, don't ask me for any other dishes because my favorite dishes are simple fried fish and stir-fried vegetables, which anyone can cook.

Butter Prawn

A few of my friends in the office decided to have a potluck gathering over Hari Raya Aidil Fitri. Everyone agreed to bring bring/make/buy something for the gathering. Mine was Butter Prawn, the dry version. I thought it tasted so and so but some of my friends liked it. Here's a photo of it, which was cropped from a friend's photo taken on that day.

18 October 2009 Sunset

One of the things I try to do on weekends is a visit to Tanjung Aru beach to catch the sunset. The beach would be filled with people, enjoying themsleves either by sitting around, eating and drinking, playing games (soccer, rugby and seasports) or taking photographs (like me and many others). The other places that I take photographs of sunset is Anjung Samudera or the Waterfront in Kota Kinabalu city center and the building where I work (really).

It's Been A While

I know. I've been busy the past one month, with work particularly. I feel like going on a good long vacation but I'm not so sure if that's possible anytime soon. Anyway, it looks like the next one month will a hectic one for me. So if you are a regular visitor, please forgive me if I don't post that often.
