Taho Blachan Chilli

Taho's Blachan Chilli
My favourite bottled belacan chilli

Note: Once in a while, I will recommend a food product that I really really love. This is NOT a paid review. The content written in this post is solely my personal opinion.

This is my favourite store-bought belacan because it really has the spicy kick for serious chilli lover like me. If I don’t have time to make my own sambal belacan from scratch, I will use this bottled convenience instead. For that reason, my fridge always has a bottle of this. You can use it as a base for sambal recipes such as sambal kangkung, sambal long beans and sambal tau kwa with sugar snap peas. I also use this chilli in my cheater’s sambal sotong recipe and it was good and very fuss-free. Besides that, you can also serve it as a condiment for dishes such as fried rice.

    the chicken rice chili from taho is very nice as well. I like to take a spoonful and mix in a bit of white vinegar to make it more tart and sharp. It’s a good sauce to go with steamboat!

    This is also one of my favourite condiment too. I always add some into my curry for extra HOT or use it to go with my fried rice or bee hoo :)

    This is one of my favourite too! I like it as its spicy and that it does not have leave a bitter after taste. However, I noticed recently that the newer batch of balachan chilli has a darker brown-red shade as compared to the earlier ones I bought. Anyone notice it?

    Hey this is also my great favourite! I use that to fry mee goreng & nasi goreng …all my friends and relatives agree it gives magic to the food! And it is so convenient from making the sambal chili from scratch! Can also use for BBQ fish, stingray. Marvellous product! :)

    Hi! What is the difference between Taho Sambal Blachan and Taho Blachan Chili?

    My local shop has the former but ran out of the latter. :-
