Tahai is one of my favorite ingredients at home, as mom always brought it home and yes... cooking it too, her most favorite tahai dishes is 'Tahai Masak Api' - its boiled method of cooking with chillies and tamarind.  Oh, ya... I almost forgot, Tahai is a kind of dried small fish, in the process the fish was grilled and dried and kept in sack.  Sambal tahai is very-very local for Bruneian and you can find it in your Nasi Katuk Stall nearby...
