Heat oil in a wok, saute pounded ingredients, chilli paste and belacan until fragrant. Add ikan bilis and big onions and stir-fry well.
Mix in lime juice, water and seasoning ingredients. Mix well. Dish out and serve with nasi lemak.
I don't think it tastes like the "real" sambal ikan bilis. Something is missing but I don't know what.
Taste was OK but I found the sambal a bit dry.
Would be better to replace the lime juice with tamarind juice instead?
