Let's start cooking!

Chili chopped on a chopping board

Step 1 - Blend chili paste

  • Blend together large red chilies, dried chilies, shallots, garlic, candlenuts, lemongrass, ginger, turmeric, 3 kaffir lime leaves and chili padi until it forms a smooth paste.
  • If mixture is too dry, you can use vegetable oil to help you achieve a smooth consistency.

Step 4 - Cook coconut and kaffir lime leaves, then season

  • Wait till oil surfaces, then add in the coconut and kaffir lime leaves.

    Coconut milk is known tobe high in fatty acids which helps build muscle and loses fats.
  • Season to taste with salt and sugar, add more sugar if too spicy.

  • Let it simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes till gravy thickens.

    You can store leftover beef rendang for up to 3 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Curries and stews taste better when kept after cooking to develop more flavor over time.
