    4                    dried red chilies
    6                    dried shrimp
                         a small piece of trassi
    2      cloves        garlic
   30      ml            (2 tbsp) fish sauce
    1      tbsp          soft brown sugar
                         juice of one lime
 
 Remove the seeds from the chilies and chop. Pound or process them  with the 
 dried shrimp. Heat the trassi. Crumble it and pound with  the garlic, then 
 combine all the ingredients except the lime juice  and process. Add the lime 
 juice, a little at a time, so that the sauce  remains fairly thick. Store in 
 the refrigerator.
