CC#32: Sambal tumis ikan bilis

It has been a long while since I last made any thing hot and spicy, and anything to do with dried chilies too.
I bought some dried chilies from the wet market last Sunday.  And it seems that there are two types of dried chilies, hot and not so hot. And the lady vendor decided on my behalf that I should bring home the not so hot variety!  And rightly so.  I noticed that this variety is a shorter, with blunt instead of pointed tips.  

I am pleasantly surprised how simple and easy this anchovies sambal is!  This simple dish is versatile - eat it as a side dish, condiment, use it in your stir fried noodles or fried rice, yummy!

CtBF: Stuffed vegetables

Tonight's dinner was simple: Ten grains rice with baked stuffed vegetables, and egg drop soup with thinly sliced bitter gourd. Below was hubby's portion of the baked stuffed vegetables.
 I used minced pork, aubergine, tomatoes, red and green peppers.  And all local herbs ie Thai basil, ginger and coriander. The peppers would have benefited with an extra five minutes baking time.
These were all that could fit into this corningware casserole dish.
A total of 45 minutes bake time.

Recipe from pages 160-161
