MANTRA TO MYSELF

God has perfect timing; never early, never late. It takes a little patience and it takes a lot of faith but it’s worth the wait.

As Aristotle said,

“Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”

RESEPI 70 : PRAWN SAMBAL | SAMBAL UDANG


Hi guys. How are you? I hope you guys have an amazing day. Today, I would like to share my simple prawn sambal recipe. It is my favorite weekend recipe because it takes time to prepare the sambal. Sambal prawn is somehow a popular dish in Malaysia. It is a combination of a sweet and spicy dish. You can have sambal prawn as a standalone dish or accompany with any side dishes. I love cucumber and fried fish as an accompaniment. So how to cook sambal prawn? Let’s check it out!





INGREDIENTS
1 small bowl of prawns
1 Tbsps. sugar
1 Tbsps. tamarind paste, soaked with water (strain and discard pulps)
½ tsps. salt
1 Hollands onion – cut into slices
Vietnamese coriander

Chili Paste (Blend into fine paste)
15 dried red chillies, soaked in boiling water to soften
3 shallots
½ inch shrimp paste/ belacan
4 Tbsp oil

METHODS:
Heat oil on medium high heat, add in the chili paste and cook until oil separates.
Add in tamarind juice and 2 cups of water. Bring to a boil and reduce to low heat and let it simmer for approx. 30 - 45 minutes. Stir frequently and add another cup of water to avoid the bottom burnt. Cook until the chili changes to dark colour.
Add in sugar and salt to taste and then mix in the prawns. Add Holland onion. Stir.
Cook until the prawns change to orange about 5-10 minutes.
Add Vietnamese coriander. Stir and done.

REVIEW: MCD SWEET CHILLI FISH BURGER 2019


Hi guys.
Today I would like to review MCD Sweet Chilli Fish Burger. Finally, I have a chance to write and review this new burger from MCD- not so new. It’s like your standard fish burger – only a bit spicier.


Okay, the burger is about the size of the Spicy Chicken McDeluxe or maybe they used the same bun. The fish patty is fried crispy with a thicker seasoning than the original Filet-O-Fish. The burger might look a bit messy, but the fish looks well-cooked without a fishy smell.  It comes with mixed vegetables and the sauce was unexpectedly tangy, sweet and a bit spicy.


Overall, MCD Sweet Chilli Fish Burger is great and the sweet chili complements it perfectly.
