Hi there.

The snips and snaps,
moments and musings,
reflections and ruminations
of a San Francisco girl out to explore.

Sambal Sauce

Sambal Sauce

Present at almost every dinner table in Malaysia,

this simple, fresh, spicy sauce will go with just about anything


Ingredients

  • 1 big red tomato, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 3-5 fresh small red chilies, chopped
  • 3-5 fresh small green chilies, chopped
  • 1 tbsp tamarind paste
  • 1 small lime
  • Salt and sugar to taste

Directions

  1. Dice every ingredient except the lime so it's ready for the blender. 
  2. Blend until a smooth paste, adding water to your preference. Sambal can range in consistency.
  3. Put the sauce into a small bowl and garnish by squeezing the lime on top.
  4. Sambal is eaten in small quantities with rice, curries, noodles, chicken, and fish. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge and it will keep for a week.
