Kerabu Taugeh (Bean Sprouts Salad)

Its all about your goodself. What is your choice, what you like, how you like to cook (Prawn Wanton Noodle Soup & Fish Coconut Stew), and what you want to cook (Nasi Dagang, Nasi Ulam, Gado Gado & Bilis Belimbing). In my house, I as usual, possibly, if I can, I like to keep it the simplest (Instant Curry Laksa & Fried Prawn Mee). Basically, I like simplicity. Simplicity in the kitchen means something I can cook within a jiffy (Vegetable Green Curry, Long Beans Prawn & Egg York Fish). At least one vegetable side is definitely a must, otherwise, I especially feel our meal is not complete and does not contain fiber and crunch. Of course, there's various ways to a vegetable dish, stir frying and what not, every now and then, I like a raw salad (Chicken Feet Kerabu, Kerabu Mangga, Watermelon Salad & Kerabu Kacang Botol). Today, lets do this Kerabu Taugeh/Bean Sprouts Salad. Are we ready? Yes please. So close to a no cook salad, but there's the little frying or heating up of the ingredients we got to do (Thai Papaya Salad, Carrot Cucumber Salad, Longan Salsa & Mango Salad Vegetarian). We have to make the kerisik, which is fresh grated coconut. Pan fried and pounded for an aromatic paste. If you don't feel like doing it, I suggest you get a packet of the ready made one. Done. The rest pretty much is blanching bean sprouts and then all ingredients tossed together. Refreshing, crunchy, spicy, tangy and aromatic Kerabu Taugeh/Bean Sprouts Salad is ready (Bean Sprouts Omelette & Bean Sprouts Salted Fish).

2 cups taugeh/bean sprouts - blanch, just around 1 or 2 minutes to soften.
1 tbsp kerisik/pan fried and pounded fresh grated coconut 
5 shallots - sliced thinly
2 red chillies - sliced thinly
Lime juice - as needed
Sugar and salt for taste
2 sprigs spring onion - sliced thinly/shredded
2 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced thinly/shredded

Add all ingredients in a bowl.
Toss and serve immediately
