It’s a short post today. Apparently my brain doesn’t work very well when my stomach is empty
Cap cay is one of dish you buy easily everywhere in Indonesia. It is one of my choice when I feel lazy. And it was also my favourite dinner when I’m in a diet mode because it’s healthy. And I just ate it like that with no rice. Only vegetable and protein of your choice.
It is very easy to make. And I often changed the ingredients depending on what I have in the fridge. If you noticed this recipe is actually very similar with my crunchy noodle recipe. And I also use bakso here, that’s why I always make lots and freeze them. I can add bakso to fried noodle, fried rice, cap cay, etc.
- 2 medium size carrots, sliced
- 1 head of cauliflower, cut
- 50g green bean, sliced
- 10 bakso balls, sliced
- 10 big prawns, cleaned
- 2 stalks spring onion, sliced
- 3 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 tbsp corn flour
- salt & pepper
- In a large wok or pan, saute the crushed garlic with 2 tbsp oil.
- Add sliced bakso, saute until bakso started to brown a bit. Add cauliflower and a little bit of water. Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for 2 to 3 minutes (depending how you like it).
- Add carrots and green beans. Stir well. And cook again for another 2 minutes or so. Until everything is almost cooked but still have the crunch.
- Mix corn flour with a little bit of water. And the pour it into the pan, stir well until it thickens.
- Add spring onion, salt and pepper to taste.
- Lastly add the prawns and turn off the heat. Let the remaining heat cook the prawns.
- Serve with rice or if you’re on diet, you can just eat it like that.
