Sweet and Sour Tamarind Sauce- Nam Pla Waan -

Servings: 2
Prep Time:
 15 min
Total Time: 15 minutes
       Ingredients How to?
  •  3 teaspoons fish sauce
  •  1/3 cup Palm Sugar
  •  1 thinly sliced shallot
  •  2 tablespoons tamarind
  •  1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  •  2 tablespoons water
  •  4 Dried whole chilis Optional

Tips and Techniques: Substitute brown sugar for palm sugar or just use the plain sugar. You may buy the pre-fried shallot. It is a lot easier and economical.
  • Slice the shallot thin. In a sauce pan, heat oil in low heat.
  • Fry the shallot until golden brown. Remove and set aside.
  •  Add the whole chili and stir frequent as the chili will cook very fast. It will turn darker which indicate that it is done. Remove the chili and set aside.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients. Let the sauce simmer for one or two minutes. Remove and serve in a small bowl. The sauce will get thicker as it cools.
  • Sprinkle the fried shallot and chili on top. If you like it hot, break up the chili into small pieces and sprinkle on top the sauce.
