Nyonya Prawns and Pineapple Curry

Nyonya prawns and pineapple curry

I attended a free cooking class few months back which was organized by the housing developer in my area, quite often they have this kind of free cooking class for residents (we can also bring friends along)..That class i attended was conducted by the Malaysia's celebrity chef Florence Tan.



Nyonya prawns and pineapple curry



She's a fabulous teacher because in no time, we've learned how to make prawn and pineapple curry, Nyonya salad and Hainanese rice ^^and she is humorous by telling us a lot of jokes. That was a fun cooking class and I enjoyed a lot of her yummy dishes.

Happy weekend.

Christine's Pantry said...

Sounds like you had fun in cooking class. Thanks for another great recipe.

kitchen flavours said...

Looks so delicious! I really miss this dish! One of my top favourite!
Yum...!

Melanie said...

Hi Sonia,

I've tried this recipe today. I just want to ask your opinion, after I've added in the 200ml thick coconut milk it turn out to be creamy. Do you think I should reduce the amount of coconut milk?

Joelyn said...

next time bring me ya....i nak makan too,hahahaha

The Sudden Cook said...

Looks simply amazing! Although I could do without the pineapple cubes - the prawns in itself are good enough!

Kalyan said...

Just mouthwatering....looks so easy to prepare and delicious!

Little Corner of Mine said...

Delicious! I really need to buy some candlenut if I want to make my own paste.

Belly Good Cooking said...

Great recipe and like the color too! Thanks for sharing Sonia. :)

Sonia (Nasi Lemak Lover) said...

Melaine, thanks for trying out. Ya, your gravy look quite creamy. Actually quite hard for me to describe how thick the coconut milk. Usually I buy RM 1 fresh coconut shredded (i think is less than one coconut) and add 2 cups of water, and squeeze the thick coconut milk.

Nami | Just One Cookbook said...

I'm literary drooling here. I love curry and this beautiful yellow color brings huge appetite. I must eat curry soon. I feel like I'm making curry whenever I see someone makes curry. This dish seems a bit hard to make as I don't know if I can get all the ingredients. I love to eat but so hard to cook at home... I see kaffir lime leaves often in the recipes. Is it possible to replace with something else? I know this is very important flavor....

tigerfish said...

This is a dish I really enjoy, esp with steamed rice :)

aipi said...

A sure treat for seafood lovers!
