- Prawn paste
Prawn paste is very popular in South East Asia cuisine. It is made of fermented dried prawns with salt. It is used as a part of various sauces or as a dip or in other forms.
- Prawns, shrimps and dried shrimps
Prawns and shrimps are not only a seafood, but fresh water creatures as well. The difference is in size. Prawns are the larger ones.
- Goong pad poong karee - Prawn yellow curry
It is incredible, that in Thai cuisine it is possible to create such a yummy dish within just 5 minutes. This yellow curry is not an exception. But it is exceptional from hotness point of view. As it is not spicy at all ;)
- Mixed rice
This kind of dish is in Sri Lankan villages considered as a dish served at special occasions. And the fact it was decorated with dates, rosins, prawns and eggs was even more special. As in Sri Lanka, they do appreciate guests, and luckily it was me, as I was invited for a Sunday dinner by a very nice family. So one of the courses was this very nice dish. It is something like fried rice. But the rice was not fried, just mixed aside from fire with other fried ingredients.
- Sambal goreng tempe - Fried tempeh with sweet sauce
Sweet variant of fried tempeh. Great and simple Indonesian recipe, which I have learnt on Lombok island from Mario, cool guy from Jawa.
- Tempeh tofu veggie curry - Santan sayur tempe
This amazing Indonesian curry I learned in a street restaurant on Lombok island. Except for the very interesting cooking as usual, may be more interesting was watching the couple which owned the restaurant with a little shop. The woman managed to cook a few delicious dishes, get, carry and store all good from several suppliers and her husband was hanging around coloring his hair.....
- Yum woon sen - Thai glass noodle salad with squid and prawns
The last meal I had in Thailand before I left. I nearly dropped a tear. This time surprisingly not because of the spiciness, the late afternoon simply felt so good. The sun was setting slowly and its rays were getting through the window of a small street restaurant. A very peaceful place. Thailand knows how to say good bye. And this amazing refreshing salad was another proof of it too :)
