    For the burnt chilli paste

    • 3 tablespoons peanut oil
    • 7 dried chilies, finely chopped
    • 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon cooked peeled prawns
    • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
    • 2 tablespoons tamarind juice (30g block of tamarind soaked in 125ml boiling water and strained)
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

    For the garnish

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To make the burnt chilli paste, heat the oil in a frying pan over a moderate heat and fry the onion until softened. Remove and set aside.

      Add the chillies to the pan and fry until blackened. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Add the garlic and fry until golden.
    4. 4
      Grind the dried prawns, half of the fried chillies, the onion and garlic together with a pestle and mortar, to create a coarse paste. Add the mixture to the pan with the fish sauce, tamarind water and sugar. Heat gently for a few minutes, stirring constantly, and then set aside.
    5. 5
      Heat the groundnut oil in a wok and fry the sliced garlic until brown. Add the chicken and fry for a couple of minutes on each side to seal.
