    What if I can’t find candlenuts? Can I skip it altogether? It’s hard to find kemiri here in Canada :(

    Lucky I checked the Indonesian names for the chillies. Could have set fire to myself if I’d used keriting in place of besar as indicated.

    But my goodness, what a fine dish. Will make it again. Local Chinatown grocer has candlenuts, as I’d hoped.

    How do I make the paste? How many macadamia nuts do I use?

    • Anita says:

      Hi Justin, I usually put all the spice paste ingredients in the spice attachment that comes with my blender, or my mini food processor (you can use regular size one too, of course), to grind the spice. Or, you can also use mortar and pestle if you have that. To substitute candle nuts with macademia nuts, I use a 1 to 1 substitution, so you will need to use 5 macadamia nuts for this recipe. Hope this helps :)
