It is such a slow Monday.. and it is raining outside. I finished up my lunch (rice and sambal chicken) and here I am with my black coffee. I am writing this blog because of the followings:-
- I miss the Telur Asin (Salted Egg) Fried Prawn
- I miss Indonesian food
- I miss Indonesia
- I miss Mr H
- I just can’t wait to be in Bali and find out more about the traditional food there and yes.. shopping, shopping, shopping!!!
Okay, the last time when I was in Tangerang visiting the in-laws, I remembered the time BIL & wifey brought us to Djakarta Seafood Restaurant. I remembered very well the first time I tried the Telur Asin Fried Prawn. I just could not get enough of it that when I return, I tried it out.
It was one of those Sundays, last year when mom suggested me to prepare the said prawn while she prepared the Meat Curry. For the rice, I served them with a simple Pineapple Rice. So here I am presenting the recipe to be shared with ya!

- · 2 egg yolks (cooked)
- · 1 clove of garlic (chopped)
- · 1 teaspoon of black pepper (crush)

- · Oil
Wash and clean the prawns. Dry it. Mash the egg yolks. Rub it to the prawns. Mix the prawns with garlic, black pepper and cornstarch. Add a bit of water. Deep fry the prawns till crispy. Serve with onion leave.

Scoop out the pineapple and cut. Cook the rice as normal using the rice cooker. Add in all the ingredients and stir. Keep checking till the rice cook and stir again. Serve with fresh slice tomatoes, pineapple and coriander.
