Udang masak lemak with nenas |pineapple prawn curry recipe

This is a beautiful prawn curry with pineapples cooked in a creamy gravy of coconut milk with few South East Asian ingredients. I shot this video for a Bengali news channel so the primary language of the video is Bengali. However you can view the subtitles and the recipe in English. The word “masak” means cook, lemak means “creamy” refers to the coconut milk, “udang” means prawn and “nenas” means pineapple.

For this you require lemon grass and galangal and also kaffir lime leaves if accessible. A fragrant light yellow curry to be served with hot steamed rice. This curry can be prepared without Malaysian ingredients also like Bengalis make it , who call it “anarash chingri malaikari”, the word malai in malaikari has been derived from the word “Malay” , due to the Malaysian influence on Bengali food brought in by the Malaysian sailors in Bay of Bengal. This is my favorite dish to make when I am alone at home.
