Broccoli with spicy Indonesian chilipaste
make my own paste to replenish my stock on homemade 'sambals'.
My local asian shop had some 'new products'
on the shelf and I picked a bottle of sambal.
I have a few crowns of broccoli left from the cooking course and before they start to degenerate to 'blonde crowns', I decided to cook them for lunch.
Rather sick of eating meat so it's a vegetarian lunch.
You need :
Some brocolli, cleaned and blanched in hot water.
1 onion, chopped
1 tbsp of 'sambal' paste
1 tsp of sugar
Fish sauce/soy sauce to taste
Add 1 tbsp of oil in hot pan.
Add onions and stir-fry till it starts to brown.
Add broccoli, turn into the browned onions.
(from this stage onwards, the cooking process
will take less than 5 minutes.)
Stir in sambal paste with 1 tsp of sugar.
Add fish sauce or light soy sauce to taste
Add 1/2 cup water for some juicy goodness.
