Simple Boiled Prawns with Chili Garlic dauce

Remembering my childhood memories of eating drunken prawn or just normal boiled prawn with chili sauce dipping from bottle which always involves eating with family and eating fast to get more of the prawns :D 
So I decided to buy prawns to make the dish on this holiday (it was a week holiday for us in Indonesia due to the Idul Fitri holiday) as I'm sure we will be eating too much rendang and coconut milk dishes after Idul Fitri, because we will have to go to my family who celebrates the holiday and they will mostly cook these dishes for the occasion.

Not wanting the prawn to be just boiled like that and knowing that I'm not buying life prawn to make drunken prawns, so I'm making a fusion between those :)

Ingredients :
- 500 gr prawns
- 5 cm ginger, cut in 3
- 2 tbsp of Shao Xing wine
- water to boil

Chili garlic sauce ingredients :
- 2 cloves garlic, crushed with garlic press
- 1 red chili, mashed with mortar
- 1 curly chili, mashed with mortar
- 1 red bird eye chili, mashed with mortar
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp vinegar
- 100 cc water

How to make :
- Boil water with 1 tbsp Shao Xing wine & ginger in low to med heat
- Marinate prawn with 1 tbsp Shao Xing wine
- After boiling, insert the marinated prawn till it changes it color and immediately drain the water, since the prawn would be tough if we over boiled it
- To make the chili sauce : mix all the ingredients

And as expected me and hubby raced for eating the prawn as it is so yummy :)
