Mixed Prawns and Vegetables Omelette

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Mixed Prawns and Vegetables Omelette is a perfect match with any kind of curry at home. Just with beaten eggs, small prawns, slices of leek, carrot and some large onions slices will be good enough.

Fry all ingredients and then add in beaten eggs flavoured with pepper, soy sauce and some chicken granules. Cook over slow fire. Once the eggs are slightly drier (but still with juice), fold the eggs into half. Fry them again under slow fire and not too long for a juicy omelette. You can also place them on sandwhich bread top up with mayo, tomato and chilly sauce. Real good!.

Curry Seafood Fish Squid Prawns

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

Since I have 3 types of seafood in hand and hoping not to eat the outside Nasi Kandar, I combined 3 types of seafood and cook them into delicious assam seafood curry. At least with the lady fingers and spicy curry served for dinner, my family super eaters will totally forget about those Nasi Kandar with kas kas seed for a while.

Black pomfret fish is ideal for curry. If added with Sea Prawns, the taste will be enhanced and of course with the medium sized squids altogether, the seafood curry will have more varieties and will of course make the curry even tastier.

An additonal plate of mixed omelette will be most happy for all my family members if I am not lazy. (next post) Super best with teh tarik or ice bandung. Eat and later enjoy the Astro AEC, 8.00pm, Ah Mei's Life.

Have you seen this can food in the market before? For pork lovers, I am sure you have tried this Narcissus Pork Leg. You can really enjoy eating them with a plate of hot white rice. Easy and delicious. But, remember to wash the can first before opening it. Just heat them up and enjoy!

KFC, A Relax Lunch Break Meal

I think everyone likes to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken but not many eaters like to blog this food category. Well, after browsing through my pictures collections folder with my hungry stomach, I find these pictures tempting and of course better if I can eat them now.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Of all fried chicken, I only take KFC and A&W's fried chicken. No, No to others as there are either too ripely fried or over-fried. See, the pototoes and coleslaw, ho liao (delicious) right. The bread quality is also nice with strong taste of butter.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Dinner plate set with the items in the picture @ RM8.90 plus add on drink @ RM1.50 . Total price per set RM10.92 inclusive of 5% Govt Tax.

Treat and pamper yourselves at a relax fast food restaurant for your lunch or dinner break meal. Wash your hands, pour your tomato and chilly sauce, gently tear the meat, dip into the sauces and into your mouth. Chew slowly, look at people walking around, those exhibitors jade products on display and continue your meal with slow, relax and sensational mood. Then, have some happy and trendy conversation (no office politics) with your KFC (Kind Friendly Companion) meal-mates. You will be charged with more energy once you return to your office to continue another half day's idiot job, trust me, it works.

KFC, I am not your kaki ampu and am also not advertising for you. This is a customer's valuable opinion.

Tea Time at Restoran Hot Mama, Sungai Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur

Sungai Wang Plaza is a place where many locals and tourists like to patronize for shopping. During the Raya Holidays this place connecting to Bukit Bintang Plaza was flooded with shoppers. Are the things available for sale here really at reasonable price? Why are there so many locals, tourists, expatriates and others around? So crowded! OMG!

Phew... not a good place to shop further and we have decided to rest to have tea at Restoran Hot Mama. A place where we can really relax with the clean and spacious embience and better atmosphere.

Famous Beef Noodle Soup is delicious as I will never forget to order this when I shop at Sungai Wang Plaza. Only price at RM9.90, my daughter and I enjoyed the hot and delicious soup with kuey teow noodles, shredded beef, beef balls and bean sprouts. The soup tasted so good with lots of coriander and basil leaves in it.

Cencaru Sambal Pedas Cili Padi

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Cencaru Fish (megalaspis cordyla) is easily found at any wet markets or hypemarkets as most families loves to eat them cooked with sambal and best eaten with white rice, the Malaysian way.

Today, my cooking is super spicy with lots of chilly padi. The cooking method is plain easy with ingredients of both types of chillies, lemon grass, tumeric root, shallots, garlics, ginger and tumeric. All these blended condiments are being sauted to get the aromatic fragant. Add in some sugar, salt and water and put in the fried cencaru fish. Let is simmer for a while and allow the delicious sauce to penetrate into the fish but not too long as the fish will be too soft. Lastly, add in lots of large onion slices. Dish out and serve. Garnish with lots of fresh tomatoes and onion rings.

Dish is ready. I normally eat this kind of fish with hand as it is nicer to tear the meat, pick up the sambal and rice and push into my mouth. Emmm... really best. With some vege, fresh tomatoes and onions, this is already good enough.

If we cannot finish them today, I will keep 1 or 2 for tomorrow and it will even be tastier. What to do, it's the Malaysian way of enjoying good food. Why worry, eat lah!

Chinese VS Indian Rojak,Which One is Nicer or Healthier?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
This is KL rojak with prawn crackers and fried yau char kuey. Some add chopped and boiled kangkung. It comes with assorted fruits ie: half-riped papaya, mango, pineapple and vegetables ie: turnip, cucumber with lots of rojak sauce and grounded peanuts. The taste will be better with a little chilly to boost up the flavour. Price at RM3.40.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

An Indian rojak with majority deep fried items like fish cake, fried sausage, fish ball and cucur vege with some slices of cucumber and large onions. It is served with peanut sauce, pour over or just for dipping. It tastes good with more items and the price will also definitely be good too. Moreover, 1/2 egg is added for this standard order. Price at RM3.00.

Penang Chinese Rojak & Indian Rojak aka Pasembur are different from KL version.
Do not be ""greedy and hungry" when you order these rojak especially Pasembur from Penang hawker. You will end up paying a lot more. They charged accordingly to the items that you have ordered like flowers crabs, large sotong and prawns. Same with nasi kandar method where these items are graded as 'beli mahallll, kita jualll mahall, neh'. Go Chowrasta Market, murahhhh neh neh!.

So which one is healthier? Which one taste nicer? Only individual taste-buds will tell the eater. What is your opinion, my dear friends?

Ginger Wine Sesame Oil Prawns

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
How to cook these prawns? Hubby came home with these 5 fresh large- sized prawns which he bought together with some other fresh seafood from Mutiara Damansara TESCO. Since these prawns are fresh, he ordered from my kitchen "Cook with ginger wine and sesame oil, pan fry the prawns for some nice taste ok". So this wife gotto crack and pluck the recipe from the air.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I used a pair of kitchen scissors to trim away the feelers and eyes and cut across the body to remove the intestinal vein (I normally say it's shit but my aunties said they are 'koh' which is ho lio.. eeek)

I just marinate them with a little salt and pepper and pan fry them with sesame oil. As usual I covered up the prawns while frying for moisture. 2 minutes at one side and another 2 minutes at the other side, dished out and set aside. Arrange prawns on serving plate.

Saute ginger slices till slightly brown, add in 3 dashes of fish gravy, 2 dashes of Lee Kum Kee selected light soy sauce. Pour in 1 capful of Eau Yan Sang Ginger Wine and add in 2 tablespoon of water. Add in prawns and give it a quick stir to mix the prawns and sauce together. Dish out prawns and garnish with red chilly slices and spring onions. It tasted good as I roughly pluck the taste from 'taichao' stall as it is a common dish anywhere. So, wife can bluffed hubby yeh!.

No panic and no worry if you do not khow how to handle large size prawns. The tedious part of cleaning prawns can be solved here. Why are prawns so tasty and likeable by all?
