My late mak recipe of Sambal Prawns is more or less the same as any other recipe and uses the same ingredients. But the only difference is the amount of ingredients used. My version uses more chilli. Sambal Prawns is a popular Malay or Nyonya dish and every family have their own unique recipe like me.
300gms prawns (shelled)
1/4 tsp tumeric
40 gms assam (add 3 tbsp water to squeeze out 100 ml of asam juice)
6 slices galangal
25 dried chillies (soaked in hot water)
1/2 tsp toasted belachan
5 buah keras
Method: Blend all the ingredients except assam till fine. Shelled the prawns and leave aside.
Cook the blended ingredients in 3 tbsps of oil till oil seeps thru.
Add in 100ml water and assam and brings to a boil. Add in 2 tbsps of sugar, 1/4 tsp salt. Finally add in prawns and cooked for a min or two. (Do not overcooked the prawns.)
