Singapore Style Chilli Prawns

Prawns always nice when its cooked with sauces and spices. I love this dish a lot . Cleaning the prawns is the difficult task. It takes a longer time to clean the prawns. To devein a prawn, use a small sharp knife to make a slit along the middle of the back to expose the dark vein. Pull the end of the vein up with the tip of the knife then grab it with your fingers to pull it off.

Always cleaning prawns is time consuming. But it is still worth buying the fesh prawns than cleaned ones. They tastes much better.

This recipe will serve 4 people. I am using 500g  uncleaned prawns. Clean and devine the prawns.I always take the legs off too.

After add salt and pepper and season the prawns too.

Prepare the ingredients and take everything closer to you. I used several red chillies, several cloves of garlic, Ginger and one salad onion. Seperately prepare one egg beaten, hot chilli sauce and tomato ketch up mixed.some chillie paste, and 1 tablespoon corn flour.

Add onion, chillies , ginger garlic and puree it . Add corn flour to the eggs and mix well. After add the oil in to  a pan and leave it to be hot.

If you are a vegetarian you can always adjust the recipes with Agar Agar. 1 tablespoon gelatine powder = 2tablespoon agar flakes and  2 teaspoon agar agar powder.

I found  if you reduce the milk to 200ml it works better. Its up to you to decide.

Hokkaido cheese tarts…..

I tried to introduce my page through this video to my dear subscribers and all the viewers. Its heart breaking to see how people dislike someones effort at once with out  looking at the picture as a whole. As I just started my page I tried to get you all in this way to the page. Its a very innocent try. May be I am wrong here. I thought to try a new method…Sorry If I did something bad…….

Any way I will tell why I was so impressed about these beautiful little tarts. Recently I went to Chadstone shopping centre  to change my video camera to a better one. When I was walking I saw this cart with full of little tarts. No wonder why I stopped there. I was looking at them for a while. People were lining up in a queue to buy them. I was waiting to buy them  too. I got several and tasted one. It was awesome. Nice and creamy , very colourful and soft in the middle. All I did while driving back was thinking how to make them for you all.

This is the end product.  I love them so much. I am so happy to get these results. It looks the same and tastes the same. It didn’t stay long  all gone in few minutes. All I like to say is try this at least once and see how beautiful they are……………..

Singapore Style Chilli Prawns

Its the 1st day of 2017. I thought I should do something nice for the lunch as we all have lunch together. I love Singapore style crab. I couldn’t find the crab. So I got these  beautiful prawns from the market. So I did this chilli prawns for my family. They loved the colour and the taste of it.

Always try to serve this style of cooking with steamed rice or even with Fried rice. Very Simple and Easy.

We do spend a lot of our money when we can create the same dish at home. Try this recipe and see how you can enjoy with your family.

When you select prawns make sure to buy the fresh catch.When you buy Raw Prawns look for firmly attached heads and tight, firm shells with a good sheen. There shouldn’t be any blackening around the head or legs as this is a sign of oxidation, and they should have a pleasant ‘fresh sea’ smell. Buy 1kg of Prawns in the shell to get about 500g of Prawn meat.Leave Prawns in their shells until just before using them and store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It is always best to buy seafood as close as possible to use. Fresh Prawns however, cooked or raw, should keep refrigerated for up to 3 days and frozen for up to 3 months below -18ºC.

After removing the head from fresh  Prawns, hold the Prawn straight and gently pull the end of the digestive tract (from the head end), it will usually come out in one go. If it breaks off, use a thin skewer to hook it out from the back of the Prawn, or make a small incision along the back of the Prawn and remove it. When you butterfly the prawn all the spices goes in and make it more tastier.

Like all seafood, Prawns require very little cooking. It is always better to undercook, rather than overcook, them, as they will continue to cook in the residual heat once they are removed from the pan. While perfectly cooked Prawns are springy, sweet and succulent, overcooked Prawns are dry, rubbery and tasteless.
