Sambal Goreng

by The Charlie on Mon, August 22, 2011

This has so much going for it that all you need is a bit of rice and some spicy sambal belacan and you’re good to go.

Incredibly tasty!

Serves 4 people

The crisp glass noodles, chewy tempe and smooth chicken livers give great texture and flavour. Absolutely a treat!
