Kacang & Ikan Bilis Sira
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
Heat oil in a heavy pan.
Put in the chilli paste. Cook for about 3 minutes on low fire.
Put in the sugar, vinegar & salt. Keep stirring & cook for another 6 minutes or until it bubbles & slightly caramelized.
Turn off the flame. Stir in the fried peanuts & anchovies. Coat it evenly.
