Finally sorta settled down into my new house. There are still some things that need to be changed, things to buy and landscaping to do. So, I might not be able to update as often, but here is one that I did weeks ago.
I love okra! To save time, I used the frozen cut okra right from the freezer and bottled shrimp paste sauce, belacan powder and bottled chillie garlic sauce to make this delicious comfort food.
Living in the U.S., we just have to adapt. Fresh okra is pretty hard to come by but the frozen ones are basically every where in the freezer section. This frozen okra is actually very fresh because it was packed and freeze right after it was harvest, clean and cut. One thing though, don't defroze the veggie, it would get soft and mushy. Just cut it open and pour into the hot wok to stir-fry. You don't even have to wash it.
The result? You can't even tell it is from a frozen package.
