Kacang & Ikan Bilis Sira

Kacang & Sira Ikan Bilis.jpg

I always like to cook a side dish that can be eaten together with white rice and a main. Ikan Bilis & Kacang Sira keeps well, tastes amazing - easy to cook if your technique is correct, and goes beautifully with any main dish. So, after cooking it, I bottled it up so we can eat it anytime, anywhere, with anything!


  • 2 cups of crispy fried Ikan bilis

  • 2 cups of deep-fried peanuts

  • 1/2 cup oil

  • 1/2 cup chilli paste

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup vinegar

  • 2 tsp salt


  1. Heat oil in a heavy pan.

  2. Put in the chilli paste. Cook for about 3 minutes on low fire.

  3. Put in the sugar, vinegar & salt. Keep stirring & cook for another 6 minutes or until it bubbles & slightly caramelized.

  4. Turn off the flame. Stir in the fried peanuts & anchovies. Coat it evenly.
