Sambal is a Malaysian all-purpose condiment.
It can be added to noodles, soups, rice, stews, eggs, and you can even mix it with mayonnaise for a spicy dip. Typically it's made from various chillies and other ingredients that can include lime juice, shrimp paste, ginger and onions.
This is our, well Papa Yeoh's, version of the sambal recipe passed down from his family. Instead of lime juice, we use keffir lime leaves. It gives it a more intense flavour...umami is life!
The sambal contains Belacan (shrimp paste), so it's not suitable for vegetarians, vegans or anyone with fish allergies.
Make sure you keep it refrigerated and always use a clean spoon/utensil to scoop out your sauce. If you follow these instructions, your sauce should keep for at least 6 weeks, but we're 100% sure you'll love it so much it will be finished within days.
Ingredients: Onions, Chillies, shrimp paste, keffir lime leaves, tomato puree, salt
