Had so much fun today making this Malaysian Dish with a friend of mine!
70 Grams/2.5 Oz Dry Shrimp
85 Grams/3 Oz Shallot Onions
1 Small Clove of Garlic
1 Red Hot Chili
1 Cup of Desiccated Coconut
1/2 Tablespoon of Shrimp Paste
1/2 Teas Turmeric
2 1/2 Tablespoons of Raw Sugar
What to do:
Soak the dried shrimp in water until re hydrated and plump and then drain. In a food processor, add the shrimp, shallot, garlic and chili. Process until fine. Heat a wok and add 1/3 cup of oil. Add the processed mix and stir fry for a few minutes. Add the shrimp paste and stir well to combine. Add the coconut, turmeric and sugar and stir to combine. Serve with sticky coconut rice!
To make the Sticky Coconut Rice:
Soak 500 Grams of glutinous rice in water for 2 - 3 hours and then drain. Add 400 ml of Coconut cream. Put into a dish that will fit into a bamboo steamer and steam for 45 minutes.
Add some of the shrimp mix to a small mould, top with the rice and press down. Turn it over and unmould.
Enjoy! YUM YUM YUM!!
You can add more Chili to this to make it spicier! Make it to your liking!
You can also roll this into Banana leaf and seal both ends. Grill or pop in to the oven until you can smell the Banana Leaf.
