Happy Cooking 1: Ketchup Prawns

So this post marks the first entry which Mr. Robotic blogs about his novice cooking skills. For those who know Mr. Robotic on a personal level, you must have remembered that Mr. Robotic's aim for the end of this year is to attempt 10 dishes. He had already tried 2 dishes so far and this post is his third attempt at it...

Ketchup Prawns
Learned of this recipe from the Noob Cook.

Ingredients (Serves 2):
- 10 large prawns (shrimps), shells & veins removed
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 tbsp chopped garlic
- 1/4 cup of ketchup, mixed with 25 ml of water
- 1 chilli, deseed and cut to long strips (add more if you want more )
- 1 small tomato, cut to small chucks

1. Heat oil in wok and stir fry garlic and chilli till fragrant.
2. Add prawns and stir fry till they are almost cooked.
3. Add the ketchup solution and stir evenly till the paste bubbles.

Note: You can stir in a beaten egg to cook at step 3 if you like.

The preparation time and steps for this dish is relatively quick and easy. So it is really good as a starter dish for novice cooks like Mr. Robotic. Taste-wise, Mr. Robotic thinks it will be as good as the ketchup that you use. So choose your favorite ketchup brand!
