Oily Balachaung Recipe

Oily Balachaung Recipe

Ingredients :

20 cloves garlic, peeled and sliced into thin pieces

5 onions, sliced finely into thin slices

250 g shrimp powder

1 teaspoons dried shrimp paste

2 cups peanut oil

2 teaspoons chili powder

2 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup vinegar


Method :

Heat a wok with oil and saute the garlic and onion separately on low heat until golden. Do not burn. Remove and set aside. The garlic and onions will become crisp and darken as they cool. Using the same oil, fry the shrimp powder for about 5 minutes. Add the chili powder, salt to taste and the shrimp paste mixed with vinegar. Mix the ingredients well and fry until crisp. Remove from heat to cool completely. Mix in the fried garlic and onion, stirring well. Store in a dry airtight jar to keep for a few weeks.
