Sambal Dried Shrimps Okra

Featuring one of my short-cut homecook dishes:


1 pkg. of frozen cut okra (you can use fresh of course)
About 2-3 Tbp. of dried shrimps, soften in hot water, drained
2 big shallots, sliced thinly
2 Tbp. shrimp paste with bean oil
2 Tbp. sambal oelek ( or less or more depending on how spicy you can take)
Fish sauce to taste
1 tsp. of sugar
4-5 Tbp. cooking oil


1. Heat the oil in a wok. When hot, add shallots, stir-fry for a while. Then add dried shrimps. Stir until fragrant, then add the frozen okra. Stir well and add the rest of the ingredients. Add a little water when need to.

2. Cover the wok and let the okra cooked through (this is if using the frozen okra), keep stirring if necessary. Serve hot!
