Stir-fried prawns with tumeric is a common dish among the Malay community in Malaysia and often sold at hawker stalls. I love this dish because it is so flavourful despite the minimal amount of ingredients used. The subtle taste of tumeric enhances the deliciousness of the prawns. Overall, this dish goes well with white rice or even quinoa.

As a seafood lover, I enjoy this dish tremendously. The slight hint of tumeric makes the prawns exceptionally yummy. Moreover, the vegetables which are added to the dish make it healthy and wholesome.

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!
