Home Made Ten Don
Our favourite one dish meal - Ten Don. Of course the preparation was hot, messy, oily.... but I think making it at home worth the effort and we could enjoy to the fullest when we could have more than 2 shrimps, 2 slices of sweet pumpkin..... and for me, the most important part of this dish is the SAUCE. Why?? because I have yet to convince myself to accept using the dipping sauce as the Ten Don bowl gravy. Ten Don sauce suppose to be thick and little sweet, which it needs a long time boiling to reach the right taste and consistency. So far the only place I have had it, is at the cake shop/ cafe - Tampopo at the basement of Liang court. Where they sell the Ten Don in take away boxes. As for me, I have not reach the level of cooking my own Ten Don sauce, even though I have the recipe. But the good news is, we can buy this sauce off the shelf!!! Where?? It's available at Meidi-ya supermarket. I must tell you, I was thrilled to see the sauce selling in bottle form and it's so convenient! Best of all, I it's available in Singapore!!!! The taste is great, and love the thick consistency. Now I have more reasons to cook Ten Don at home without paying so much to enjoy more shrimps in each bowl of our Ten Don!
After so much about the sauce, I will definitely to share the picture, since it is sooo good!!
For those who are ready to try this out, happy cooking and happy eating!!!!
