Mussels Sambal / Sambal Kupang

Happy Tuesday Everyone!!!

Oh my god.What on earth is going on? The peaceful England turned into chaos.What has happened to our liberty?

Poor innocent peoples have to endure all the messes.Hope these riots erupted in Britain comes to end as soon as possible.

My thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by this horrible tragedy.Hope everything calm soon.

Today special was a seafood dish .A delicious Mussels Sambal.A typical Malaysian sambal/ spicy sauce  with  succulent mussels. A perfect and delightful side dish for plain rice or even is best with  Nasi Lemak/Fragrant coconut rice.

This time,I  made the sambal sauce  slightly different by adding some Buah Keras(Candle nuts) paste. The candle nuts gave the rich flavor and color to the sambal sauce.More the less the sauce ligthly creamy and nutty in texture.

Mussels Sambal / Sambal Kupang

500g Mussels-cleaned and shelled
1 big Potato- cut into small chunk
2med Onion-cut into ring
1.5tbsp Thick tamarind paste

For Sambal Paste
3nos Candle nuts
1/2 tbsp Toasted belacan(shrimp paste)
5clove Garlic
1.5inch ginger
3nos stalk Lemon grass-white part
20 Dried red chilli - soaked in warm water (Adjust to taste)
7nos Shallots

Simply blend  sambal paste ingredients listed above to smooth paste with little water.

Heat oil in a wok, add the blended sambal paste, cook on low heat till fragrant and oil separate.About 20-25mins.Add the mussels and potato chunk,cook about 5mins then add the onion ring,tamarind paste and seasoned with salt.

Mix well once and cook further more minutes until the mussels and potato cooked thoroughly.Serve with rice or its go well with nasi lemak(Fragrant coconut rice).

OMG, this looks so good! I was quite surprised when I saw the name kupang as in Indonesia. Kupang is a kind of clam that super tiny or call it baby clam.
