?Two ripe tomatoes, quartered
?One tbsp tamarind paste
?One cup water
?1-2 tsp palm sugar or dark brown sugar
?salt
?8-10 shallots
?2 tsp belacan, also spelt belachan or blacan [dried shrimp paste]
?4 cloves garlic
?5 tbsp chili paste
?4 candlenuts [Substitute: macadamia nuts]


Cooking Preparation of the Recipe:

? Using a mortar pestle or blender, grind shallots, garlic, belacan, candlenuts, chili paste into a paste
? In a heated wok, add oil, stir-fry ground paste until quite toasted and oil starts to ooze, about 5 mins
