"Crispy, spicy and so addictive!"


100g Red Chillies
40g Bird’s Eye Chillies
3 Cloves Garlic, minced
100g Red Onions, sliced
3 Asam Keping
1 Tbs Sugar
100g Tempe, sliced thinly
100g Potatoes, sliced thinly
150g Ikan Bilis
2 Cups Cooking Oil


1. Blend chillies, bird’s eye chillies and garlic.

2. Fry ikan bilis, potatoes and tempe until golden and crisp. Do the ikan bilis last because it would take the longest to fry and you want it to stay crispy for the sambal.

3. Drain ikan bilis but leave about 5 Tbs oil in the wok.

4. Saute blended ingredients and onions until fragrant. Add in asam keping and sugar.

5. When it starts to smell good, add in fried ingredients and mix well.Cook for a further 5 minutes. Done!
