How To Cook Eggplant & Dried Shrimp Sambal

This eggplant sambal dish is from the same broadcast as the fish with tom yum sauce (hour 2) but I thought I should split it into two posts so it’s easier for people to find the recipe.


Eggplant Sambal


1 large eggplant, cut into chunks
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 Tbsps dried shrimp, soaked, drained and lightly crushed
4 Tbsps chilli paste from soaked, blended, dried large chillies
½ Tbsp belacan (shrimp paste) powder (optional)
½ Tbsp chicken powder
1 tsp sugar
Dash of fish sauce
3-4 Tbsps oil


Pan fry eggplant until soft and lightly browned. I used an air fryer and cooked them for 15 minutes at 180C.
Heat 1 Tbsp oil in frying pan. Add minced garlic and dried shrimp; saute until aromatic.
Add all other ingredients and saute until oil separates.
Add eggplant and toss through. Remove and serve.
