  2. Making Balado Sauce

    • Blend the shallots, garlic, big red chili and curly red chili.

    • Heat the oil in a shallow pan and sauté the Balado paste, stirring continuously to prevent burning.

    • Add bay leaves, kaffir lime leaves and galangal. Stir to mix evenly.

    • Add the salt, sugar, chicken stock powder, tamarind water and brown sugar. Stir and cook until the Balado is aromatic and the oil separates, turning the Balado into a slightly darker colour.

    • Add the potatoes and quail eggs and stir until well combined.
