    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

      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.
