Syd Bigger 1 c Oil For Deep-Frying
4 oz Dried Green Jalapeno Peppers
1 c Chopped Shallots
1 c Chopped Garlic
8 oz Dried Shrimp
2 tb Shrimp Paste
1/3 c Fish Sauce (Nam Pla)
1/4 c Sugar
This dip will give any food a much richer taste, and add spiciness.
Heat a small pan with the oil and deep-fry the dried peppers, shallots and garlic until dark brown. Place the fried ingredients with all the others in a blender, and process until a smooth mixture forms. Pour the entire mixture into a medium skillet and fry on medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove, cool, and place in a jar with a tight fitting lid and use as needed. It will keep indefinitely. From: Thailand The Beautiful Cookbook. Typed by Syd Bigger.
