This basic mix can be used to make all kinds of interesting sambal. I like mine as hot as I can stand it so its only bird’s eye chillies in here.

Serves 2 - 3 people
Spicy to the roots of your hair but so good...
25- 30 bird’s eye chilli (a mix of red and green)
1 thumb-sized belacan
½ tsp sugar
Pinch of salt if needed
Pound and grind down all the ingredients until you get a rough paste. This makes about half a cup of basic sambal belacan.
For you wusses out there use 20 bird's eye chillies + 3 red chillies instead of all bird's eye chillies.
