Mummy's Masak Lemak
Another recipe from Mum- Masak Lemak. Usually I eat this with fried ikan bilis (anchovies) on the side. A bit of sambal is a nice addition too, or a begedil (potato patty). This version from Mum is made with kangkong and dried prawns. There are many versions of Masak Lemak- you can make it with chicken or seafood as well.
200 g kangkong (you can use spinach or anything leafy)
2 red chillies
3 cloves garlic
1 red onion
1 tbs dried prawns
1 can coconut milk
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp tumeric powder
1. Pound chillies, garlic, onion, salt and dried prawns into a paste.
2. Heat oil and fry the paste until fragrant.
3. Add the spinach and cook until softened (you can also add cabbage or long beans)
3. Add coconut milk and seasonings and cook until the coconut milk comes to the boil. Serve with rice.
