Here’s another Hari Raya holiday dish!
Simple and takes less than 20 minutes to cook, we prefer the use of freshly made sambal and large tiger prawns as the sweetness of the prawns balances out the spiciness of the sambal when cooked inside.
Also, we tried our the new NATURamic skillet wok from WMF – It heats up really fast and has a scratch proof surface that’s perfect for stir fry dishes, so if you’re looking for a daily wok then this is for you!
