This is a Malaysian recipe for a very hot chilli sauce to go with with prawns or chicken.
Too sour! Half the tamarind at least. Also, substituted jalapenos for serrano chilies, but that was OK. Good luck finding belachan. Low rating from my Malaysian family due to the sour flavour. - 05 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

Great recipe but like others had mentioned add tamarind juice and shrimp paste according to your liking. I personally used a little less than half the amount. Also, i omitted the lemon juice as it was already a bit sour. hope this helps! - 22 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
