This week i made tekwan. I combine all the recipe that i got from my friends. Try to make it simple and easy. I modified the recipe as I wish, lol. Tekwan is one of traditional fish soup originally from Palembang, South Sumatera – Indonesia. The most important thing from tekwan is fish ball and prawn soup. The fish ball is different from fish ball that sold in most asian store. Actually the recipe for tekwan is easy and you don’t have to make the shape as round as a ball. So don’t you worry about the shape, lol. All the soup never failed to satisfied my family so is tekwan. Even I am allergic to prawn but for tekwan I dare to take a risk for my allergic effect. Its soooooooo delish……soooo drooling……
