Recipe Ah Wong Chai’s Lamb Curry

curry lamb

When I saw this photo recipe at Ah Wong Chai’s facebook I knew I must give this recipe a try. I took his recipe and improvised to suit pressure cooking. More prep work is needed this time, and pan frying the ingredients is needed before placing into the pressure cooker. Coat the lamb with the mixture, placed the ingredients into the pressure cooker pot close the cover and start cooking.

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.

Yours Sidney
