3 tbsp Tomato paste
½ tbsp TUMIX® Ikan Bilis (Anchovy) Seasoning
2 tbsp Brown sugar
Some AJI-SHIO® Iodised Table Salt to taste
A pinch Shrimp paste (belacan) powder optional
1 Big red chilli, sliced for garnishing

(A): mix together & strain the tamarind juice
1 tbsp Tamarind juice
½ cup Warm water

This is best to eat as one of the condiments for nasi lemak, too.
