Curry Prawns with Cabbage and Long Beans Recipe

Prawns curry is my all time favourite. The natural sweetness and flavour of prawns blend really well with curry spices. I left the prawn shell intact because they are packed with flavours.
Since, I have some leftover cabbage, I throw them into the prawn curry as well. Long bean is a must for my seafood curry because my wife love it very much! In order to reduce the spiciness of the premixed curry spices, I add a tablespoon of serbuk ketumbar (coriander powder) to the curry. My little 5 year old loves curry but it must not be too spicy or else he won't take it.
Here is my Curry Prawns and Long Beans Recipe.....

Prawns, medium size, 500 gms
Onions, 2 pcs. blended
Garlic, 5 cloves, blended
Ginger, 1 small piece, blended with garlic and onions
Lemon grass, 1 pc, blended with onions, garlic, ginger
Curry powder, 3 tablespoons, mix with water into a paste
Coriander powder, 1 tablespoons, mix with curry paste
Curry leaves, 3 stalks (optional)
Cabbage, 4 to 5 leaves or more
Long Beans, 5 pcs, cut into 1 " length
Coconut milk or cream, 1 cup
Salt to taste
Lemon juice, 1 tablespoon

Heat up wok and put in around 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Saute blended onions, garlic, ginger and lemon grass until fragrant. Add in the curry and coriander paste. Fry for a short while and add in the curry leaves. Throw in the long beans and cabbage. Add coconut milk and bring to a boil. It the mixture is too thick, add in some water. Put in the prawns, salt to taste and lemon juice. Cook for a short while because prawns cooked easily and they will remain tender when not overcooked. Your "Curry Prawns with Cabbage and Long Beans" dish is ready!

Final Result Lee Chong Wei vs Lin Dan, 2012 London Olympic Badminton

The latest result of Lee Chong Wei vs Lin Dan, London 2012 Olympics badminton finals!

The 2012 London Olympics men singles finals was an interesting match. Both Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan fought tooth and nail for the gold medal. It was a very close match and they chased each other points by points. Chong Wei won the first match but Lin Dan caught up with him on the second one. In the final match, Lin Dan played well and Chong Wei made many mistakes in the begining. Anyway, after changing court during the 3rd half game rest, Chong Wei managed to catch up to collect some points to lead!  However, Lin Dan managed to catch up and won the match. There goes our hope for our first Olympics gold. So sad! So close, yet so far!

Anyway, Datuk Lee Chong Wei played very well! All my respect to him!
