2. While frying the eggplant, pound anchovies coarsely, followed by chillies and belachan.
3. When the eggplant is done, arrange it in a plate.
4. Take out the excess cooking oil, and saute the sliced onion until fragrant.
5. Then fry the mixed sambal belachan together.

Hi Cynthia J.

Thanks for dropping by. I know what u mean, I've been waiting for the moment to get my hands on tiyung dayak. But it's impossible to get it here in KL, it has to be airflown specially all the way from Kuching.

I'll already got someone to bring it over for me next week. Pls come back and check this space.. thank you.

have you tried planting tiyung daya in KL? i tried here once, but due to our short summer, my tiyung plant died because of frost in fall.

i'll check back next week to see your yummy post! thanks
