Yummy Happy Call Pan Succulent Prawns Carrot Cake Recipe

chinese stir fry prawns carrot cake
Are you also a fan of the Chinese Carrot Cake? Whenever I tried to introduce my foreign friends to our local carrot cakes, there's always a strange expression on their faces. Don't you think there's a huge difference between the Western and Chinese type of carrot cakes? I mean, the Asian carrot cakes aren't exactly a cake, are they?

The Stir-fry Chinese Carrot Cake comes in either the original white version, or black by adding sweet sauce. My family loves the white type.

I found this block of carrot cake from Hiap Chen Food Products at Sheng Siong Supermarket. It's 2 kg for just SGD 3.40! I thought it's worth a try since the price is so cheap. It comes in smaller blocks too, but the 2 kg one is much cheaper. I used half of the block to cook for 3, and kept the other half for another day.

Went home joyfully and dish out my Happy Call Pan, which I thought it would be perfect since I can just flip the pan upside down instead of using the work. Indeed, the #HCP did a great job! The Chinese Stir-Fry Carrot Cake turned out nice, soft yet crispy. Adding the succulent prawns was brilliant too; it was a perfect breakfast for my family!

(Serves 3)
Ingredients:
1 kg Carrot Cake
10 medium to large Prawns
2 beaten Eggs
1 tbsp Chye Poh (Preserved Radish)
2 tsp Hebe Hiam (Dried Shrimp Floss)
2 sprigs Spring Onion (chopped)
½ minced Garlic
4 tsp Olive oil
Pepper to taste

  7. This looks really nice :3
    I've been searching for Asian recipes, my father's wife had a really bad health problem and according to the doctors, Asian food is okay for her since it doesn't have too much fat and bad ingredients. It's always nice for when we don't want to eat the typical boiled and grilled food (which isn't bad,but sometimes we just want to try something else :3)
    Thank you very much for sharing this >w< Take care, have a nice day!*

  16. After a long time I saw your recipe using happy pan. You used carrot cake in this dish. Do you mean the actual carrot cake the sweet one? Or is it something different?

    1. Balvinder, your memory is good. I haven't posted HCP recipes for a while....... Hahaha! I knew one of you gonna pop up a question like this. The Chinese carrot cake is not sweet, & you can add seasoning like chilli, black sauce to add more flavours to the dish. Taste is completely different from the Western carrot cake dessert :)

  17. Shirley thank you for sharing such a simple way of making a healthier at home recipe of carrot cake! I never thought of making it at home and I know my parents will love it, I'd put dark sauce in my version and some pork fat if its selling at NTUC! ^^ Great job!
