Basic Sambal Belacan

by Honey Ahmad on Fri, December 17, 2010

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.

Basic Sambal Belacan

Difficulty

  • Preparation
    15minutes
  • Total
    15minutes
INGREDIENTS
    25- 30 bird’s eye chilli (a mix of red and green)
    1 thumb-sized belacan
    ½ tsp sugar
    Pinch of salt if needed
METHOD

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.
