The Datai Langkawi’s Chef Adee Shows You How To Make The Perfect Prawn Curry

If you missed Robb Report Malaysia’s ‘At Home with Robb’ webinar featuring a live online cook-along session at The Datai Langkawi, here’s your chance to experience the cooking class and make this special curry dish. Hosted by Contributing Editor Renyi Lim and Chef Adee, the 30-minute webinar shows viewers the easy but crucial steps of making Gulai Udang Tumis Darat – a Malay prawn curry with pineapple, green beans, and tomatoes.

Predominantly filmed on-site at The Datai Langkawi’s award-winning restaurant, The Gulai House, Chef Adee also addresses the difference between store-bought and homemade curry powders, and the advantages of harvesting herbs from The Datai’s sustainable permaculture garden. As they’re currently closed due to the nationwide lockdown, with plans to reopen as soon as the restrictions are lifted (targeting mid-June), this is undoubtedly the next-best alternative to experiencing a lesson at the resort’s cookery school, The Dapur.

Watch the video and make this scrumptious prawn curry for dinner tonight.
