Sambal is a staple condiment in places like Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore and is usually made by combining a variety of hot chili peppers with fresh ingredients like garlic, shallots, lime juice, shrimp paste, sugar and vinegar.

The ingredients are traditionally minced together in a pestle and mortar and can be eaten both raw or cooked – it’s a great condiment to use to add heat to all kinds of Asian dishes without overpowering the dish and you only need to use a small amount.

Add it to the end of your next stir-fry, fried rice or soup noodle dish and enjoy a traditional taste of Southeast Asia!
