1 cup dried shrimp powder

1/2 cup desiccated oconut

3 teaspoons chili powder

2 onions, chopped

5 cloves garlic, sliced

1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger

Heat up a dry frying pan and fry the shrimp powder for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Do not overcook. Remove and set aside on a large plate. Using the same pan, heat the desiccated coconut, stirring until a rich brown color. Remove and place on a plate to cool. With a food processor, blend the remaining ingredients until a smooth paste.

Serve with white rice and curries.
