Chili Paste (Chinese Chili Paste in Sri Lankan Style)

Chili Paste is popular among Sri Lankans, specially with Chinese Fried Rice. So this can be called as  Chinese Chili Paste. But I want to say Chinese food we find in Sri Lanka is bit different from actual Chinese Food I find in Singapore. However, still I love Sri Lankan Chinese Food. Our chefs have adapted many Chinese Recipes according to Sri Lankan taste. So can I say, Sri Lankan Chinese recipes are little bit spicy?

I have posted some Sri Lankan Chili Recipes before. Even there is another Chili paste recipe posted under Lamprais recipe(Lump Rice). Please check them.

Here is the recipe for Sri Lankan Style Chinese Chili Paste.

Ingredients :

 2 tbspn chili flakes, or more to taste (kali miris)
1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
5 tbspn dry shrimps (kuunisso)
2-3 tbspn oil
1 tea spoon sugar
1 tea spoon Ginger/garlic paste
2 tblspn Tomato sauce
1 tbspn Soy Sauce

Wash shrimp.
Grind shrimp for a fine paste
Heat oil , Add garlic/ginger paste.
When it gives aroma, add shrimp paste. Then Chili pieces.& mix well.
When the colour turns in to brown, Add sugar & salt.
Finally add tomato sauce & soy sauce. If you feel, chilli paste is dry, add a little bit tomato sauce.
Remove from heat.
This chili paste is fine with fried rice.

Few tips
Please arrange all the required ingredients nearby before start cooking.
This should be cooked faster; there is a chance that shrimp can be turned black.
Be careful when adding salt because we add soy sauce too

This is another recipe from me for the ongoing event Cook like a Celebrity Chef
