How important is a sauce to a dish?

I would say very important! It gives a twist of flavour to the dish. It brings it to a different level. It adds extra boost to what you’re having. For this recipe it gives you a kick to the dish.

Steamboat Project

1 small bowl of dry chilli (Chopped Finely)
½ small bowl of Shallots (Chopped Finely)
½ small bowl of Dry Shrimp (Chopped Finely)
2 small bowls of Cooking Oil

Steamboat Project

1. Heat cooking oil in a wok with Low-Medium fire. (Preferably as you will have to use less cooking oil then a pan.)
2. Put Dry Shrimp in for about 5mins, you will see it bubbling, stir occasionally.
3. When the Dry Shrimps turn slightly golden put in the dry chilli for 5mins, stir occasionally.
4. Put in the Shallots, and cook until the aroma fills your kitchen. That will be another 10mins, in between remember to stir occasionally.

5. Let the Sauce rest to cool in the pan for about 30-40mins then transfer it into a glass jar to store and be use when needed.

***Bland it in the blander for a more fine chilli sauce.***
I can't find one around so................I didn't!
