Also known as ‘udang goreng kunyit’ which translates to sauteed turmeric shrimp, this dish is so flavourful despite the minimal amount of ingredients used. The subtle taste of turmeric enhances the deliciousness of the prawns. Moreover, the vegetables which are added to the dish make it healthy and wholesome.
In this recipe, I cooked shrimps with the shell on. Having the shell on when cooking this dish helps to improve the flavour. You may also cook the shrimps without its shell.
Besides snow peas, other vegetables such as carrot, green beans or capsicum can be added.
Yes! Udang masak kunyit is just one of the many variations of this stir-fry dish with turmeric. Other versions uses chicken, beef and squid. Simply replace shrimps with the meat of your choice
I would highly recommend this dish as an after work meal. Fast and simple! Just remember not to over cook the prawns, else the texture would be tough. You just have to try this dish to love it!
