What a better way to heat up one’s body on a cold night. We have not had Nasi Lemak for some time, so decided to make it today. Thank you Mr G for getting all the ingredients prepared for me. That made life so much easier. I felt just like the Iron Chefs – having my own personal helper!
This is one way I make Sambal Prawn.

30 large Green Prawns
2 large handfuls of long dried chillies* – de-seeded and soaked in hot water

½ thumb size galangal*
Small piece of belacan*
1 tbsp tamarind pulp – mixed with ½ cup water and juice extracted
2 tbsp veg oil
