My Home-made Sambal Sauce (Savory Chili Sauce) Recipe

Hi Friends, introduce to You my home made sambal sauce recipe.

Beside using sambal as a dipping sauce for fried and grilled food, it tastes even better with a few drops of lime juice.

I often used sambal sauce to cook many flavorsome dishes for seafood like spicy squids and fish., poultry like sambal chicken, sambal pork slices and veggies like okra, egg plant etc…

My family specially like to savor sambal sauce with plain rice or coconut rice. It is also savory with noodles too.
