Singapore Chilli Prawns #TrickyFishy


500 g prawns in shell
1” fresh ginger, sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3-4 red chillies
2 tbsp oil
1 heaped tbsp salted soya beans light pounded
1-2 tbsp sugar
1 cup water
3-4 tbsp tomato sauce
1 egg, beaten

Pound the ginger, chillies & garlic to make a paste.

Heat oil in a large wok and gently fry the paste for 2-3 minutes.

Add the pounded salted soya beans and fry for another minute, stirring constantly.

Add the prawns and stir-fry over high heat until it changes colour.

Lower heat and add sugar, water & tomato sauce and simmer for 5-8 minutes stirring from time to time.

Just before serving, stir in beaten egg.

Sprinkle with a handful of chopped fresh coriander.

Serve with steamed/boiled plain rice.



You may also serve, in addition, stir-fried spinach with garlic, soy sauce and rice wine.

You may dispense with the egg and opt for cornflour as a thickener.
