Yummy spicy dried shrimp sambal chilli from my mummy!!!
With the Japanese Okra I bought from the supermarket some days back, I whipped up a dish in no time. I took the back seat this time with just 1 dish. Hubby did the rest. He cooked stir-fried ginger spring onion beef and made a pot of daikon soup. A lazy wife he has got himself. :P
One Saturday dinner over just like that! It is always nice to have the other half whipping up meals for me once in awhile :)
A joint effort.
Serves 2 to 3
250g Japanese Okra (Lady Fingers)
1 tbsp sambal chilli, washed, stalks cut and removed, sliced
4 pcs garlic, minced
