250g Shallot, peeled

90g Garlic, peeled
100g Fresh red chilli,remove stalk.
120g Dried shrimps,soaked for few mins then drained
100g Chilli flakes
2 Tbsp Red chilli powder
2 Tbsp Salt
4 Tbsp Sugar
4 tsp Chicken ess powder
1000ml Vegetable oil
10 Tbsp Vegetable oil(added when done)

1). Put garlic, shallot, fresh chilli and dried shrimps in a food processor and chop to a medium coarse texture.

2). Tip this mixture into a sauce pan and add remaining ingredients (Except the last few Tbsp oil).

3). Cook this mixture with medium heat till the oil is hot and bubbly.

4). Turn the heat down to minimum and let it simmer gently and bubble away for about 3-4 hours, stirring every few minutes to prevent catching or burning the solid part.

5). Once the solid has turned a dark rich brown colour and fragrant, heat off. Add the last few tbsp of oil to cool the mixture and stop further cooking.

6). Let this cool down slightly and spoon into clean jars.
