Do you know assam or tamarind are the same thing? It’s a slightly sour fruit pulp. The sourness is what makes a dish so appetizing. It’s used in many Malaysian and Nyona dishes like Tamarind Pork Rib Curry. It’s another of mom’s dishes that my family loved. I’ll be sharing blog and video soon.
I explain in the video which assam pulp to get so you don’t make a mistake like I did!
The wild caught jumbo prawns were perfectly seared in my cast iron wok and flavored with the 3 ingredient Assam Sauce. You can also make in your cast iron skillet! 10 minutes from start to finish, DONE!
Note: Please no nonstick woks or pans because it cannot handle high heat.
