I love spicy food and even though we're experiencing a 'heat wave' now, I just can't resist this ..... heaty, maybe, but no worries, can make some 'leong sui', cooling drink tomorrow!

  • 100 gm shallots
  • 50 gm garlic
  • 1/2 inch of belacan - shrimp paste
  • 5 dried chillies - soaked till soft, seeded and cut
  • 2 stalks lemon grass - can be crushed or blended
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp Thai fish sauce
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • Some kaffir leaves
Preparation
  1. Wash the chicken pieces, drain, set aside.
  2. Blend together the shallots, garlic, belacan, dried chillies and lemon grass.
  3. Mix the blended ingredients into the chicken pieces together with the salt, fish sauce and brown sugar.  Leave it aside for a few hours.

    This is a very simplified version, only use fish sauce, kaffir lime leaves and lemon grass. Are these easily available in your Asian grocers?
