Spicy Prawn Sambal

Yesterday was a busy day for me, came back home at 11 pm after work so I couldn't cook anything for meal. So today I have, cooked my husband's  favorite Prawn Sambal. As you all know I love to cook variety of sambal, I have bought large prawns for this dish.

Come let us look at how I cooked this;


500g of large prawns (de-shelled and deveined)
3 onions sliced
1 tbsp of chili sauce
1 tsp of brown sugar
1 tsp of salt
3 tbsp of oil
1 cup of water

To be ground fine for sambal:

2 large onions sliced
5 cloves of garlic
20 pcs of dry red chili
1 cm shrimp cube (belacan)
1 cup of water

Grind all the ingredients for sambal into a fine paste and set aside

Heat oil in a wok and fry onion until translucent

Pour in the blended ingredients and let it boil until it thickens

This is almost thickened

Add brown sugar and salt

Now add chili sauce

Add 1 cup of water and let it simmer and thicken again

Add cleaned prawns when the sambal thickens

Our Prawn Sambal is ready to be served

Yummy, do try and let me know how it turned out!
