Assam Ko Heh (Tamarind Prawn)

I have always wanted to share this easy-to-made dish, this is one of the unique nyonya dish I will cook when having Nasi Lemak. 

Want to know how I eat ? Using your hand, just dip the Assam Ko Heh into the Sambal Belachan and with your fingers scoop the Nasi Lemak and in goes into your mouth ! After that, lick your fingers,...well, you can still taste the sourish taste of the tamarind, perhaps a bit of the pungent Sambal Belachan

Erh,...disgusting ? Trust me,...it's worth it !

Clean and devein the Prawn.

Soak the Tamarind Pulp with water, mix with the Prawn, add some Salt and Sugar.

Leave aside and let it marinate for 3 hours in the fridge.

Heat up oil over medium fire, in goes the Prawn and fry till slightly burnt. Add some Dark Soy Sauce if you wish. 

Serve with Nasi Lemak.

Serving for 4paxs.

800g Prawn (Clean & devein)
50g Tamarind Pulp (Soaked in water)
1tbsp Sugar
