SAMBAL OELEK



This is an Indonesian chilli sauce..very hot and spicy. You can use it as an accompaniment with the snacks or add to recipes like Nasi Goreng, where chilli sauce is required.

Ingredients:
Fresh red chillies ... 200gms
Water ............. 1 cup
Salt ................. 1 tsp
Sugar ............. 1 tsp
Vinegar .......... 1 tbsp
Oil ................ 1 tbsp

Method:


1. Remove stalks from the chillies and cut into pieces.

2. Boil them in a pan with 1 cup water. Simmer for 10-15 minutes.


3. Pour the chillies into a food processor and add the rest of the ingredients. Blend to a paste.
Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator. Stays good upto 2 weeks.

If we want to store it for more than 2 weeks, cook the paste in more oil after blending on a low flame until the oil floats on top. You can even freeze it in plastic containers. ( I usually do this)

This recipe is from STEP-BY-STEP- INDONESIAN COOKING( Periplus Mini Cookbooks)

  6. I am a huge spice fan. I am also currently trying to make my fridge a homemade condiment only fridge. All the store bought ones must be replaced. This, looks like a good one to have in my fridge though. How long do you think it lasts?

    1. If you fry it with lot of oil it will stay for 2-3 weeks in the fridge.. but you can freeze it for a longer time. What I do is freeze it in smaller quantities and take out one at a time as needed
