Kam Heong

I got the chance to taste my first Kam Heong in PD & had fallen in love with this stir fry. We had squid but I'd like to share this recipe with shrimps instead.

OK first of all is to get the shrimps ready. Cleaned & marinate with a tablespoon of turmeric powder & salt.

Stir fry for a while only for the shell to change colour.

Next is to saute 2 tbs of pounded shallot & garlic. Use the same oil.

Don't forget some curry leaves...

Once golden, join in 2 tbsp of ground dried shrimps , 2 tbsp of curry powder & 2 tbsp of dark soy sauce. Stir well for a couple of minutes.

After that pour in a tbsp of corn flour diluted in a half cup of water. Continue stirring. Add salt if necessary.

Join in the half cooked shrimps. Stir evenly.

Waaalaa... Kam Heong is ready. Serve hot with white rice. If you opt for squids, I like it better if the squids are deep fried in batter. Enjoy your Kam Heong :-)
