Recipe: Sambal Ikan Bilis

Sambal Ikan Bilis


300g Cili Giling
150g dried *ikan bilis (*anchovies)
1 brown onion - sliced thinly
1/2 tbsp ginger - chopped finely
1 tbsp belachan paste
1/2 cup of water
1-2 tbsp oil
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt


1. Fry ikan bilis in oil till crispy - this will take about 7 minutes on medium high heat). Dish out and leave aside.

2. Fry onion and ginger until fragrant.

3. Add belacan paste. Stir well for another 4 minutes until fragrant.

4. Add cili giling. Fry for 1 minute until fragrant.

5. Add water and let it simmer for 3 minutes. (You may add more if you wish to have more gravy, I like mine dry)

6. Add the ikan bilis that you have fry earlier. Lastly, add salt and sugar to taste. Stir well and serve hot.


This is my first attempt at making sambal ikan bilis and this is just as good as the ones you can find served outside in Malaysia. I bought the cili giling paste from Jaya Jusco for less than Rm3.

It is very easy to make, spicy and addictive. I highly recommend this recipe to all sambal lovers!!

That dish called Sambal looks delicious, I wish tested it soon because I'm a brown onion addict. I hope you can show when I can buy the same dish with the same flavor.
