Back to the Kitchen

After all the simple meals I have been making, I started missing getting my hands dirty with complex cooking.

The cookbook I chose is The World of Street Food. The recipe I chose is a Malaysian Nasi Lemak.

It was perfect since it gave me an opportunity to use my gift of Tamarind paste from My Dear Lovely Neighbour.

First, a simple rice made with coconut milk.

It felt too simple. Inspired by the rice making skills of My Dear Lovely Neighbour, I threw some curry leaves and mustard seeds in the rice.

Then I made this extremely spicy marinade of oils and chilli peppers.

I then fried the shrimps in this sauce, added the Tamarind paste and served over the rice.
