- 1 tbsp oil
- 1 medium onion, sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped

- Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 3-4 minutes or until softened.
- Stir in the chilli and bagoong then cook for 2 minutes until fragrant.
- Pour in the coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Cook for about 5 minutes until it has thickened a little.
