Fried Shrimp with Kerisik

I came up with this recipe for our breaking fast yesterday. I used things normally found in my kitchen. The result is simply amazing and delicious. It is easy to do and the cooking time does not take so long and you can still be very impress by the result.
1 kg of shrimp (medium size)
4 pcs of tofu (tauhu)
2 medium onion-chopped
2 garlic
2 cm Ginger
1 pckt Curry leaves
2 table spoon Chilli powder
2 red chilli
2 green chilli
Coconut oil for frying
2 tbsp grated coconut
2tbsp soy-sauce
A pinch of salt

Leave the shrimp heads and shell on but chop off the eyes part. Marinated it with chilli powder and a pinch of salt. Leave aside for 2-5 minutes. Then fried them until the shrimp turns lightly brown. Then you heat oil in a pan. Cook onion, garlic and ginger. Add curry leaves, marinated shrimp, soy-sauce, tofu and kerisik. Put in red and green chilli. Salt to taste. Cook until shrimp are pink and firm about 2 minutes on each side. Served it hot with rice or bread.

  2. Hmmm...hajat nak buat your egg pudding this weekend belum kesampaian lagi. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get the chance (and kerajinan...Hehehe...)

    As for this yummylicious prawn/shrimp dish, kena KIV dulu coz' udang dalam freezer dah habis la pulak...

    But, I will definitely try this soon - my son memang suka all kind of fish and seafood, especially crabs, lala and udang (which he pronounces "Hudang")
