Ground Dried Shrimp (Ebi Tumbuk)

Ground Dried Shrimp
What do you do when you have a package of dried shrimp (ebi)?

I know what I do.  Take my spice grinder out from  my cabinet.  Dump the dried shrimp in the grinder and process it.Then, I keep it in a tight glass jar. So, it’s ready to be used.  It can be used for sprinkling over cuko (tamarind sauce), porridge, noodle, soup base dishes etc.   I also substituted chicken buillion.   Sometimes if I realized I don’t have terasi at home I use this for substitution.
