    120 gm red chilli paste

    60 ml tomato puree

    10 cm galangal slice

    10 cm lemon grass

    4 salam

    60 ml tomato ketchup

    40 ml oil

    Salt and pepper - to taste

    4 green chillies - diced

    4 red chillies - cut into pieces

    2 onions - sliced and fried

    For Sambal Ulek (Paste)

    25 chillies

    White vinegar

    2 tsp Salt


Heat 40 ml oil in a wok. Add the sliced onion and the prawns. Saute for one minute.

Add sambal sauce to the prawns and toss for five minutes or till done. Remove from heat.

Garnish with sauteed onion, diced red chilli and green chilli.

To Prepare the Sambal Sauce:

Heat oil in a wok. Add the sambal paste and all the remaining ingredients.

Keep stirring for 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat. When cool, store in an airtight jar in a refrigerator.

For Sambal Ulek (Paste):

Wash the chillies; remove the stalks, but not the seeds.

Put the whole chillies into the jar of a blender, add about 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar then blend.

If the chilli paste is too thick and chunky, add a little more vinegar, blend again: it should become a smooth paste. Then stir in the salt.
