Nam Prik Ong – Pork and Tomato Chili Dip Recipe

Ingredients :

  • 5 dried chilies, cut open, deseeded and soaked in hot water for 10 minutes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sliced galangal
  • 3 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon dried shrimp paste, roasted
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 3 oz (75 g) ground pork
  • 1 cup (170 g) ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) water
  • 1 sprig coriander leaf (cilantro), chopped
  • Raw vegetables: cucumber, long beans, carrot, cabbage
  • Steamed vegetables: long beans, eggplant (aubergine), pumpkin, cabbage

Method :

Grind the chilies, salt and galangal in a mortar and pestle or blender. Add the onion, shrimp paste and garlic cloves and grind thoroughly. Add the pork and continue processing. Add the tomatoes and mix. Heat oil in a wok, then fry the chopped garlic until fragrant. Add ground mixture and continue frying over low heat, stirring, until the ingredients take on a gloss. Add the water and continue cooking, stirring until much of the water evaporates and the mixture becomes fairly thick. Transfer to a bowl, then sprinkle with chopped cilantro. Serve with fresh vegetables or boiled vegetables or both. Yields 1 cup.
