Stir Fry Tomatoes with Chili & Balacan

Stir fry tomatoes with chili and balacan is one of the typical side dishes of Burmese cuisine. This is the dish that I must cook at least once or twice a week. It is good to go with a bowl of white rice and chicken curry. Yum.

This evening, my little sis cooked this dish and the taste is even better than my version (even though she seldom cook). Here is her recipe.

  • 5 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
  • Dry shrimps 100 grams
  • 1 tsp of Balacan paste
  • 4 big tomatoes (dice into very small pieces)
  • 5 red chili
  • 3 Tbsp of cooking oil
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 seasoning powder
  1. Heat the cooking oil in a frying pan.
  2. Add in garlic and fry till the edges are very light brown in color
  3. Add in the rest of the ingredients, 1/4 cup of water and cook for about another 10-15 mins or until the tomatoes become thick paste.
  4. Remove from heat, dish out and ready to serve. Enjoy!
