Malacca Sambal Prawn Belimbing

The next and last dish I cooked using belimbing fruits, so mouthwatering! Delicious! :)

Recipe is from Joyce's site, and I saw Bee Bee also cooked this dish :)

What you need:
(I modified a little to suit my liking)

20 medium size prawns - deshelled and deveined
50g chilli paste
300g shallots - chopped
2 cloves of garlic - chopped
1 tsp fried belachan (shrimp paste)
15 belimbing fruits - cut into 2 (I used all the balance I had, around 18)
4 pcs lime leaves
1 tomato, sliced to wedges
1 medium onion, sliced to wedges
1/4 cup water, more to add if it's too thick (I did add a little more)
2/3 cup canola oil
2 tbsp tomato ketchup
salt, sugar to taste

  1. Blend shallots, garlic, chilli paste, belachan to a fine paste
  2. marinate prawns with 1 tsp of sugar, stir well and set aside
  3. Heat oil on a saucepan, add blended paste and fry around 10 minutes over medium low heat, stir frequently to avoid burning
  4. Add in lime leaves int othe 5 minutes of frying, keep stirring til paste is fragrant and separated from the oil
  5. Add in belimbing fruits and stir for 2 minutes, Add in water, stir and simmer for 2 minutes to soften the belimbing
  6. Add in prawns, tomato, salt, sugar, tomato ketchup
  7. Let boil and stir til prawns cooked through, around 5 minutes
  8. Off the heat and serve warm with many bowls of rice LOL
