Winged Beans with Prawns


Winged beans are versatile edible legumes with long, flat pods covered with frilly “wings” along the four edges.


The beans generally recognized by their local names like “kacang botol” in Malaysia, “kecipir” in Indonesia.


Best cooked with prawns and Chilli Shrimp Floss


Rinse the winged beans with water and dry with kitchen towel.

Cut into your desired sizes.

Heat wok with some cooking oil and fry minced garlic till fragrant.

Add the prawns and fry until semi cooked with a dash of Chinese cooking wine.

Add the winged beans and toss two tablespoons or slightly more Chilli Shrimp Floss and chilli sambal and mixed thoroughly giving them a quick stir.

Add some water if too dry and cook until the winged beans are soft but yet crunchy.

Taste and adjust seasoning if required.

Turn off the heat and transfer to serving plate.

Its best to serve immediately.

You may wish to sprinkle another tablespoon of Chilli Shrimp Floss before serving.

Prawn Tempura


How about making  crispy and delicious prawn tempura at home with easy steps.


12 to 15 large Sea Prawns

Credit goes to this video on how to prepare and cut  the tempura prawns.

This type of prawn is called nobashi which just means stretched. Of the 3 ways it’s done, chef prefers the 1st way since to comes out the longest and I absolutely agree with him.

Salted Egg Prawns


The salted egg craze is still on.

From waffles, donuts, fries, pizzas, prawns,  croissants and the list goes on.


4 salted egg yolk

12 pieces prawns (deveined, remove the prawn head but leave the rest in tact)

3 tablespoons Milk or full cream

Unsalted butter

1 tablespoon Chilli powder

Few stalks of scallions

Corn flour

Pinch of salt


In a pan, add milk, sugar, salt, chilli powder and salted egg yolk and stir fry for a couple of minutes.


Blend the ingredients in a blender until the mixture turned smooth but not too runny.


Set aside to cool before cooking.

In the meantime, coat the prawns with some cornflour  and deep fry until the prawns are cooked.

Leave the cooked prawns on paper hand towel to drain the excess cooking oil.


In a clean wok, add some slices of unsalted butter and bring to a semi boil, add the blended ingredients and finally the cooked prawns.

Mixed all the ingredients thoroughly and serve hot.

If you don’t have curry leaves, chopped scallions works well and add flavour to the dish of yummilicious Salted Egg Prawns.
