Spicy Sambal Fried Anchovies

Nasi Lemak Condiment
Ramadan fasting month is around the corner and there are various food promotions.  Certain cooking ingredients are really worth buying.  I came across this type of dried anchovies which only costs Ringgit 7.50 per kilogram.  Not too sure of its quality, I bought 500 gm for my Ma to cook this dish which goes well with plain white rice.
Ringgit 3.75 for this much of anchovies
350 gm anchovies - bones removed
2 tbsp chilli paste
30 gm pounded shallots
150 ml tamarind water [1 tbsp tamarind mix in 150 ml water]
1 big onion - sliced
sugar to taste 
oil for frying anchovies

1.  Wash anchovies under running water for several times and drain dry on colander before deep frying till crispy
2.  Fry anchovies till golden and crispy.  Dish out in a bowl
3.  Heat 2 tbsp oil in wok, saute chilli paste and pounded shallots till aromatic.  Add in onions, fried anchovies and tamarind water.  Stir fry and let it cook till boiling.  Add in sugar and salt to taste.  Dish on in bowl and serve with sliced cucumber.
