This is every Baba Nyonya's favourite dish! It is a very simple dish yet incredibly packed with flavours. Perfect with fried fish, this paste is the ultimate match as the flavours give you a kick of spicy fragrance.
For the vegan option, this pairs well with fried tempeh/brinjal/tofu!
If you're afraid of it being spicy, don't let the colour fool you! It's not spicy, worry not.
