Beef Rendang and Sweet n Sour

I am being fair so I tried both recipes 1 from my mom and the other from my MIL.

Sweet and Sour (which I accidentally put way too much chili that makes it look like sambal instead but taste sweet and sour still.

Dried Chili
*Blended everything
Tomato sauce
Corn flour

Saute the blended stuff
Season with Salt and Sugar
Thicken it with corn flour.
ps: I used fried nugget with the sweet n sour sauce ... meat option is all up to u, fish oso can/

Rendang (MIL's recipe)

20 chili padi
1 large onion
1/2 thumb of ginger
6 cloves of garlic
blend all the ingredients above

2 scoops of blended chili
1kg of beef (daging goreng)
2/3 of coconut milk (small)
2 cups of water
2 tsp salt
2 stix of lemongrass (bashed)
2 to 3pcs of lime leaves
1 tbsp sugar

Heat the oil in a stew pot, add the blended paste and stir-fry them until aromatic.
Add the beef and the pounded lemongrass and stir for 1 minute.
Add the coconut milk, water and simmer on medium heat, stirring frequently until the meat is almost cooked.
Add the lime leaves and  sugar, stirring to blend well with the meat.
Lower the heat to low, cover the lid, and simmer for 1 – 1 1/2 hours or until the meat is really tender and the gravy has dried up.
Add salt to taste. If not sweet enough, add more sugar to taste.
