It has been raining these past days and is suitable to eat spicy food.  An easy dish to make and ready be in less than 30 mins if you have ready-made sambal paste in the fridge.  I always make a big bottle for emergency use.  These mini dry fish were given by my uncle when he visited us from Hong Kong.

The dried fish was rinsed in water and sun-dried thoroughly before putting in the freezer to store.

Deep fry the fish in hot oil till crispy and leave aside.
Cut up 1 onion in strips, 2 tomatoes in wedges and 2 chillies in big pieces. Smash lemon grass.
Fry onions, chillies and lemon grass till fragrant.
Add in 2 full tablespoons of sambal and continue frying till aromatic.
Throw in tomatoes and 3 tablespoons of water and cook till tomatoes are soft.
Mix in 1 tablespoon of tomatoes paste.
Add in the fried fish and is ready when the gravy is semi-dried.
