spicy garlic chili sauce

Sambal is a condiments that has a chili base sauce is very popular in South East Asian country, Sambal can be use to add more spiciness to any dishes, I normally use this chili sauce for stir fry, such a spicy fried rice,fried noodles, noodles soup, vegetables and also seafood and meat dishes.


Traditionally my mother made ​​ sambal / chili sauce in a pestle and mortar, by mixing the ingredients in the grind, but I made it in a different way, all the sauce ingredients roasted in the oven and grind in food processor.


I use fresh cayenne pepper and tomato from the garden and blend with garlic,shallots,lemon juice, salt,kafir lime leaf powder and drizzle with vegetable oil.




Ingredients :
- 7 clove garlic
- 7 clove shallots/ 1 red onion
- 10 fresh cayenne pepper
- 3 tomato/ cut in quarter
- 1/2 lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon kafir lime leaf powder
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Direction :
preheat oven on 350 F
mix all ingredients into baking dish, drizzle with vegetable oil
bake in the oven 45-50 minutes,let them cool
transfer into food processor, and pulse until smooth and combine,about a minute or so.
put in a jar and store in the fridge.
