Kangkung (Water Spinach) With Dried Prawns and Belacan

Unassumingly an all time favourite truly loved dish, kangkung/water spinach fried up with belacan and dried prawns actually is darn easy to make. But, cleaning the long stem veg by cutting off the roots, plucking the leaves and splitting the stems and then slicing of course will taken up time. Also, when a stir fried dish is your pleasure, everything, I mean the ingredients should be on stand-by so that the dish is quickly stir fried over high heat and possibly devoured into there and then. So to say, this one dish is surely appetizing just like that with lotsa of rice. Oh, before I forget, you need a big wok as well, otherwise, half of what you are frying would have spilled on the floor or stove instead of staying put in the wok.

1 bunch of kangkung (Water Spinach)-  cut off the roots, pluck the leaves, slit and cut the stems.
2 tbsp of dried shrimps (soak for 5 mins and pound coarsely)
1 medium size onion (dice thinly)
4 garlic (pound coarsely)
2 tbsp blended/grounded dried red chillies
1 tsp belacan powder ( shrimp paste)
3 tbsp oil
Sugar and salt for taste
Get a large wok (kuali) and heat oil.
All ingredients goes in except kangkung. 
Fry and stir till aromatic and oil splits.  
First, add the stems. Cook and stir for 1 min.
Next the leaves.
Quickly stir and remove from heat. 
Don't forget to trend along "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
