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.
