these dishes on each National Day. This year we are having it very early because one of our girls would be away on a Science expedition over the National Day and Hari Raya holidays.
I don't remember when we first started doing this. The recipe was from my mom and so I had been having these since I was a kid. We kids used to call them "heaty prawns" but to my children they are known as "crunchy prawns". "Heaty" meant it was heavily rationed but these days the kids have their fill. Almost all what is shown here would be eaten by them.
