Urap Tangeh

(Bean sprouts with Grated Coconut Salad)
Another example of a salad. This one has toasted coconut as the integral ingredient. If you are a vegetarian or do not like
a salty shrimpy taste, leave out the dried prawns.

Ingredients:
1 lb fresh bean sprouts
1 cup grated coconut
salt to taste
juice of 2 lemons
10 dried chillies, soaked in hot water
5 shallots
15 dried prawns, soaked in hot water

Method:
1. Grind chillies, shallots and prawns into fine paste.

2. Fry cocunut in dry frying pan and add ground paste and salt.

3. Stir until fragrant and the coconut is toasted (golden).

4. Add bean sprouts and fry 1 to 2 minutes max. Do not overcook.

5. Sprinkle with lime juice and serve.

Cooking Tip
Wash and tail (pinch off the stringy end) your beansprouts. It is extra work that can be done sitting in front of the TV or while talking with family and friends. The finished product is worth the extra effort, particularly when serving company.
