This Thai-inspired dish is called “Ma Haw”. The ground pork and peanut relish is traditionally eaten with a small piece of pineapple. However, prawn crackers makes a great – if not better – substitute. The crunchy prawn crackers goes extremely well with the savoury and sweet relish.

Makes 20-24 servings



200g ground pork
100g ground peanut
2 shallots, peeled and finely chopped
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 1/2 tablespoons palm sugar
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon dark soy sauce
4 kaffir lime leaves, finely shredded
1 pack fried prawn crackers
1 tablespoon cooking oil
Some cilantro or parsley leaves, for garnishing


1. Heat up 1 tablespoon oil and stir-fry the chopped shallots until aromatic.

2. Add ground pork and stir-fry until the color changes. Use the spatula to break the lumps.

3. Add fish sauce, palm sugar, dark soy sauce, lime juice, and kaffir lime leaves into the ground pork and continue to stir-fry.

4. Sprinkle ground peanut into the ground pork, stir to blend well, dish out and set aside.

5. Place a heaped teaspoon of filling into a prawn cracker, garnish the topping with a cilantro or parsley leaf and serve immediately.
