My mom’s recipe again 🙂 Simple ingredients that make great food.. Try it out and let me know if you like it!

Sambal Prawn


  • 200 g prawns with skin removed (marinate with 1 tsp of sugar)
  • 70g shallots
  • 10g garlics
  • 2 tbl of Chili Boh
  • 5g belachan (shrimp paste)
  • 20g cooking oil
  • Pinch of salt




  • Place shallots, garlic into Thermomix bowl and chop at 3 sec, speed 6. Remember to close the cover with measuring cup.
  • Scrape down sides of bowl. Then pour in cooking oil, belacan and chili boh. Sauté for 4 minutes at Varoma temperature on speed 1.
  • Add prawns, cook for 2 minutes at 100ºC on counter-clockwise operation Reverse + speed soft (stir). Add salt at the last 30 sec.

How convenient it is to use Thermomix to cook sambal.. everything from blending chili boh, chopping ingredients to cooking sambal is done within Thermomix. It is easy to clean as as well as I just put some water into Thermomix and blend it for 10 sec at speed 8 and throw the water away. Thermomix is ready to make another meal!

    Thank you for such a lovely recipe.
    I have a few questions:
    What is Chili Boh?
    Is it ok to leave out the belacan or is there a substitute?
    Can I substitute prawns with chicken or pork?

      Thanks for your comment. You can leave out belacan. But with belacan it will taste much nicer… We can replace prawns with ikan bilis or squid if you like. I have not tested on Chicken or pork.
      Chili boh is basically chili paste.
      Follow the instruction below to make chili boh:
      500g dried chillies (soaked with hot water and cut into diagonal so that the seeds are easier to come out)
      1 shallot/bawang kecil
      2 cloves garlic
      1 tbsp cooking oil

      1. Put the chillies together with shallot, garlic and oil. Now blend away. 2mins/ Speed 10 (you can add half cup of water if you intend to keep). I’ll cook right away, so I won’t add water to save up the cooking time (no need to wait for the drying time)
      2. Pour the paste into a decent container, store it in the fridge and voila! You’ve got yourself nice homemade cili boh that will last for a month.
