Cooking Steps :

Balachaung:
Heat oil in a pot and fry onion, stirring occasionally, until it starts to crisp up. Remove with a slotted spoon. Do the same again with the garlic, being careful to remove before it overcooks.
Discard most of the oil, leaving 2-3 tablespoons in the pan and reduce heat.
Process the dried shrimp into a light crumb. Add the shrimp and chilli to the pan and stir fry for 30 seconds.
Combine with the onion and garlic and serve in a bowl.
