Nam Prik Pow (Black Chili Paste) - print recipe
1 cup Oil, for deep frying
120 g Dried green jalapeno peppers
1 cup Chopped shallots
1 cup Chopped garlic
240 g Dried shrimp / prawns
40 ml Shrimp paste
1/3 cup Fish sauce(nam pla)
1/4 cup Sugar
This dip will give any food a much richer taste, and add spiciness.

Heat a small pan with the oil and deep fry the dried peppers, shallots and garlic until dark brown. Place the fried ingredients with all the others in a blender, and process until a smooth mixture forms.

Pour the entire mixture into a medium skillet and fry on medium heat for 5 minutes. Remove, cool, and place in a jar with a tight lid and use as needed. It will keep indefinitely.
