I crave for curry for this couple weeks. I made chicken or fish curry mostly. Actually I miss my mom's crab curry with eggplant and long beans in it.
But what to do... sadly I couldn't find any big crab here in town I'm living. The last time I ate crab was 3 years ago when I was in my homeland.
After I checked up my freezer, I found a kilo of shrimps-I almost forgot I have a shrimp from last 2 months ago.
So I should cook them soon. And since I miss to eat my mom's crab curry, so I wanna try to substitute crab with shrimps for my mom's curry.
Immediately I whatsapp my sister asking mom's crab curry recipe--glad living in fast technology era--I got answer instantly for the recipe...But as usual (or like mostly 'homy chef'), mom's answer only the ingredients...not specify how much for each ingredients.
She said: "dikira-kira saja" means approximately/ as your prefer taste.
Well.... if you are asking any moms out there about their recipe they cook almost everyday for the family... probably you'll get same asnwer as mine (^,^)
All you should do is just remembering actual taste of the meal your mom cooked for you.
Yep..so here I am making my mom's version of crab curry using shrimps with ingredients "clue" from my mom with flavor/ taste I should adjust to make it same as my mom's.
And the result..... taaddaaa.... yes! I can feel like home when I eat it. So I can say It's my mom's curry indeed...
I wish my mom could taste it s well....... ☺
