Prawn Sambal-Sambal Tumis Udang


To make the sambal, soak the dried chili pieces with boiling water until they are soften. Drain the chilies and make sure to get rid of the seeds. Then combine it with red chilies, shallots, candlenuts, shrimp paste and blend until they become a paste.

Heat oil and cook the sambal paste in a low heat. Cook until the sambal is fragrant. Then add the slice onions. Give it a quick stir and mix in the tamarind mixture and season with sugar and salt.

Add the prawns into the sambal mixture and cook until the prawns are cooked. Serve immediately or at a room temperature.
