Vegetable & Shrimp Sambal Tumis

Remember when I tried making Assam Curry Catfish and Curry Chicken with Tean's Gourmet paste a while back? Yeah, it turned out to be so yummy and authentic. Not only was it so good, it was really simple to make too!

Last week, I tried making some Vege and Shrimp Sambal Tumis with Tean's Sambal Tumis paste. It was even easier to make compared to the curry fish and chicken.

First, heat up about 4 tablespoons of cooking oil and fry some chopped up eggplants for a few minutes.

Once done, place them on some kitchen towels to drain and set them aside.

Using the remaining cooking oil in the pan, fry up some chopped garlic.

Add in some large shrimps.

Stir fry it with the garlic until it changes color. Add in some green beans.

Next goes in some chopped okra.

Lastly, add in the eggplants. Mix them all up together and stir fry on medium heat for about 2 minutes.

Now you can add in the sambal tumis paste. Stir fry the paste with all the shrimp and vegetable. A word of caution. The sambal tumis can pack in quite a punch in the spiciness department. I added in some sugar at this point (you do not have to if you have a high tolerance for spiciness). Continue cooking for about 2 minutes or so and it's done!

Wasn't that easy? A nice big pan of Vege and Shrimp Sambal Tumis. It was so so so yummy. I think it was the best out of the three Tean's Gourmet paste that I tried. I just ate it with a plate of hot steaming white rice and even had seconds!! Yeah, it was THAT good! :D
