Here's an easy vegetable dish to cook in 30 mins. Add some stir-fried oats to your pucuk paku dish to give it a crunchy texture.
30g Captain Quick Cook Oatmeal
2 Tbsp dried prawns
2 cups (120 g) plucked fern shoots
1 torch ginger, finely sliced
6 shallots, finely sliced
1 red chilli, seeded and shredded
1 ½ Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp freshly-ground black pepper
- Place Captain Quick Cook in a frying pan or wok set over low heat and “dry fry”, stirring all the time until oats are crisp and lightly-coloured – about 10 minutes. Cool and whizz finely in small chopper. Set aside.
- Soak dried prawns in warm water for 10 minutes till softened. Drain and pound finely in mortar and pestle. Dry fry, stirring over low heat until dry – about 10 minutes. Set aside.
- Blanch fern shoots in boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain in colander and run cold water from the tap. Drain well and set aside.
- Just before serving, place blanched fern shoots in a mixing bowl and add oats, dried prawns, torch ginger, shallots and chilli. Add lime juice, sugar, salt and pepper. Toss well to combine and serve immediately.
