The Birthday Menu Special : 'Salted Egg Crab/Shrimp'

Yesterday was my hubward's birthday and since it was a workday and he had to come back late, I decided to cook something different and special for him. I've cracked my brain to decide what should I cook and finally posted the question on Facebook. A beloved twilight friend was lovely enough to suggest 'Salted Egg Crab'. I have heard a friend mentioned that it is indeed a delicious meal, so I decided to try it. However, since I can't find crab at the last minute, I bought shrimp instead. :)

Here is the recipe:

500 gram crab/ketam or shrimp/udang
1 tin Ideal cream milk/susu cair
10 gram chilli/cili padi
2 spoon sugar/sudu gula
1 spoon butter/sudu marjein
10 gram curry leaves/daun kari
2 salted egg/biji telur masin
1 spoon chicken stock/sudu stok ayam
1/2 spoon salt/sudu garam (atau secukup rasa)
2 spoon cooking oil/sudu minyak masak

Preparation/Cara Membuat:
Clean the crab/shrimp and then fry them and put them aside.
Lated, heat your wok and put in the oil and butter. Then add in curry leaves, chilli and cream milk. Stir well until it boils then add in the salted egg and all the other side ingredients (salt and sugar) and stir to create a yellowish testure mix.
Lastly, add in the fried crab/shrimp into the mix and stir until your gravy becomes thick, dry and stick to the crab/shrimp.
Now, it is ready to be served!

Goreng ketam yang telah dibersihan dan ketepikan.
Panaskan kuali dan masukkan sedikit minyak dan marjerin.
Kemudian masukkan daun kari, cili padi & susu cair.
Kacau bahan tadi sehingga mendidih dan masukkan telur masin dan bahan perasa.
Kacau sentiasa sehingga menjadi kekuningan.
Kemudian masukkan ketam yg telah siap digoreng & kacau sehingga kuah menjadi kering dan melekat pada ketam.
Sedia dihidangkan

The recipe is from my beloved twilight friend Faliza. Thanx Faliza!! :)
