These savoury snacks are great for picnics. Make the sambal and buns in advance and assemble when you're ready to eat.

The dough in this recipe needs 2 hours for proofing and resting.

2. Heat oil in wok, and fry lemongrass till fragrant.
3. Next, add blended ingredients and cook until oil forms small bubbles.
4. As soon as this happens, crumble the shrimp paste into smaller pieces and put them straight into the wok.
5. Pour in 1 ½ Cups of tamarind juice. Simmer for a few minutes. Adjust the sourness by adding the remaining juice.
6. Add in anchovies cook till they soften. Adjust the consistency by adding water.
7. Lastly, stir in the sliced onion and let it cook for a further 2 minutes.
8. Season well.
