Pan Grilled Prawns In Banana Leaf



This Pan Grilled Prawns in Banana Leaf is one of my favorite street-foods, which you can find at many hawker stalls in Malaysia. I like the sweet taste of the prawns with the spicy sambal, and the lovely aroma from the banana leaf. It is best eaten hot with some steamed rice. Well, if prawn is not your cup of tea, then the fish version may appeal to you, which you can find the recipe over here

Ingredients

1 lb Large Prawns, divided
6 Okra, sliced, divided
4 to 5 Four Angle beans, sliced, divided
1/2 Small Red Onion, sliced, divided
10 Tbsp of Sambal Paste With Lemongrass, divided
3 Tbsp of Soaked Dried Shrimps
4 Pieces of Banana Leaves, divided
Sea Salt, to taste
Peanut Oil, for greasing the banana leaf
Calamansi Limes

Method

Place two banana leaves on a hot cast iron pan and grease with peanut oil. Place about three tablespoons of sambal paste and dried shrimps in the center of the banana leaf, and spread it around. Place half portion (about 5 to 6 pieces) of prawns over the sambal paste and let it cook briefly, about a minute. Then cover the pan with a lid. Once the prawn is cook on one side, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the lid, turn the prawns over. Scatter the prepared vegetables all over the fish and top it with extra sambal (about 2 Tbsp)

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
