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.
