Gulai Udang dan Kacang Buncis

Assalamualaykum all....

Hari ni nak share one of my favorite dish... that's GULAI UDANG AND KACANG BUNCIS.
Kalau di sebelah utara semenanjung Malaysia, that is Seberang Perai and Kedah (that I know of, not sure about Perlis) Gulai udang ni sedap juga dimakan dengan nasi lemak disamping sambal ikan bilis. Kata orang utagha... "boh kuah licau-licau tu" .... mmm...bila makan boleh lupa nak tengok orang lalu lalang, tambah pulak nasi panas dan ada pulak tenggiri masam goreng.... ermmm... meletup!!!! Kesedapannya... mau berpeluh pagi-pagi.

Itulah peri sedapnya masakan ni. But again.... only for those who really likes it like myself. Other members of the family? Mr Hubby? ... 'ok... lama dah tak makan. '. Atikah? ...'i dont like it'. Sabrina and Hakim? I wish they were here.


The preparation time : approx 30 -40 mins
My ingredients:
8 prawns - de-vein
1 large onion
2 tbsp curry powder
1 potato
5 french beans
1 cup coconut milk (i used the palm milk)
Salt to taste

For frying (tumis darat)
2 shallot
1 garlic
1 inch ginger
1 cinnamon stick
1 star anise
2 tbsp cooking oil
* get everything sliced thinly

How do i make it?
1. Put the sliced onion in the cooking pot. Add curry powder. Plain water (enough for boiling). Let it boil to cook the curry powder.
2. Add potato (quaters). Boil again till tender.
3. Add coconut milk.
4. Add prawns. Once the prawns are cooked, add salt to taste. And turn off the stove.
5. In a gridle, put the cooking oil. Fry the frying ingredient till brown. Pour into the cooked curry. Put the lid on. That will keep the hot oil vapors from evaporating.

That's all. Now its ready to be eaten.

Wassalam.
