Nyonya Prawn Sambal (Sambal Udang Nyonya)

Hi darlings, 
Sincere apologies to those of you who may have been on the look out for a new pitching in this precious space of mine. Ah! Tell me about it. Time and time, apart from, I am one of those who can't stay put in front of my laptop for pitching. Oh-yes, the fidgety me, the hyper me. Nevertheless, there has to be, yes, the moment I must surrender my butt on the chair for pitching. So here I am. I also sincerely wish, I can pitch something different, instead of recipes all the time, but when the mind is tired, the thinking capacity will be swinging like a pendulum. Therefore, in such instances, the best will be? The familiarity to my cooking and sharing my recipes. Today, I bring you another Nyonya recipe (Nyonya Okra Sambal & Nyonya Acar Fish). No, no, I'm not a Nyonya. I am actually the Indian lady, who not only love exploring Nyonya dishes, but also a big fan of? Imagine, please do right now, the role play, the interlinking, profound, spicy, and aromatic bloom and boom of our Malaysian herbs in Nyonya dishes (Ayam Pongteh, Nyonya Mee Siam & Ikan Goreng Asam). Precisely too, in this Nyonya Prawn Sambal. Right on, right into the recipe now.
