  • 500ml oil, for deep frying
  • 500g (4-6) potatoes, skinned and cut into long wedges
  • 50g dried anchovies (ikan bilis), centre bone removed
  • Spice paste:
  • 30g (about 3 tablespoons) dried shrimps, soaked and chopped or coarsely pounded
  • 6-8 shallots, peeled and finely chopped or coarsely pounded
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped or coarsely pounded
  • 100g chilli paste (cili boh)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar, or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt, or to taste


  1. Heat oil in a wok to deep fry the potatoes until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towels.
