  1. Wow! Is that last chili paste what you usually get served as a side-dish when you buy fried rice, vegetables noodles, biryani etc. at the restaurants in Sri Lanka? I have been wondering how you make those chili pastes and thought that maybe it's something they get readymade at the Chinese stores or so. Thanks for this post, Amy. You have a lot of interesting dishes in your blog.

  2. hi,yes.the last one is the chili paste which we recieve when buying fried rice etc.Few years ago I found the recipe from a Sri Lankan news paper & tried.Until today I prepare this for fried rice & oops now I have become an expert for this:) Also can prepare some more & keep in the fridge.If you prepare this,keep all ingredients around as shrimp turn brown faster...
