How to make it
- Put shallots, garlic, red chilies and turmeric in a pestle and mortar and pound to a smooth paste. You may prefer to use a blender but this is too small an amount for most blenders to process without using too much water.
- Heat 3 tbs oil in a wok or deep pan and when hot, put in the spice mix and stir over high heat for about 3 minutes.
- Tip in the vegetables and turn off the heat. Add sugar, salt and vinegar and mix well. Taste and keep adding salt, sugar and vinegar till you get a pleasing balance of sweet, salty and sour. Add half the sesame seeds and mix.
- Transfer to a serving bowl/dish and sprinkle with the remaining sesame seeds. Serve.
