Recipe Details

Sambal is a versatile Southeast Asian chile sauce used to season stir-fries, noodles, eggs, meat, seafood, and vegetables. It is also enjoyed as a sweet, sour and spicy table condiment. This fresh version accentuates the bright flavor of the chilies and can be prepared in 15 minutes or less.

  1. Place all ingredients, except oil, in food processor or blender container; cover. Process until coarsely chopped.
  2. Heat oil in small saucepan on low heat. Add the sambal puree; cook 15 minutes or until fragrant and oil floats to the top, stirring occasionally.
  3. Store in clean, tightly covered container or jar in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
