Lemongrass Prawns Hokkien Style

This dish is a very special dish, why?

My late dad taught me this dish, yes my late dad. He is a real cook and I think he learned from his aunt when he was young… I think. I seldom see this dish serve in any restaraunt which is strange. Yes it is my late dad’s recipe. This dish main ingredient is prawns and lemongrass. You need to cut lots of lemongrass to prepare this dish but not as difficult to prepare a dish called “ikan perut”and this dish is flavoured with fresh turmeric. So I recommended that Chef Steven Cheng to try this recipe and this is how it turn out.


400 gm large prawns
20 stalks lemongrass
1 inch fresh turmeric
1 big onion
4 bulbs garlic
3 chilli padi
1 cup coconut milk (1/2 cup double cream)

Unshelled the prawns and clean properly
Marinate the prawns with a pinch of salt and pepper
Thinly slice the heart of the lemongrass. Take about an inch.
Minced turmeric, onion, garlic and chilli padi
Deep fry the sliced lemongrass untill fragrant. Take them out.
Fry the minced onion,turmeric, garlic and chilli padi till fragrant.
Add in prawns, once cooked and in lemongrass.
Add in coconut milk and add in seasoning.
(* if you want a drier dish add in less coconut milk. )


This dish is lovely and smells so fragrant. This dish is specially prepared by Chef Steven Cheng.

Stir Fried Baby Leek Bulbs with Japanese Seaweed Tofu

Baby leeks

It is another weekend morning marketing at my regular wet market at SS17, Petaling Jaya where I stumbled upon a very interesting vegetable, baby leek bulbs. This is the first time that I had seen such unique and interesting, baby leek bulbs and yet do not know what to do with them. An elderly lady who was standing beside me insisted that I should dry stir fried them with tofu to bring out the full flavour of the baby leek bulbs. She also teached me just to use the bulbs and discard the stems. It really sounded interesting and tasty. She taged way with 2kg of this baby leek bulbs as her son loves them. After overwhelming by her lust, I too immediately bought 1kg of this baby leek bulbs. I also picked up a packed of japanese seaweed tofu from the market.

Japanese Seaweed Tofu


The japanese seaweed tofu looks great, not soft and well suitable for stir frying. I had them cut into cubes and deep fried. By doing this I will able to have a crunchy texture of tofu and also easy to stir fry them within seconds.
