Sambal Manis

Guests coming for dinner, and I am cooking Sayur.

Suddenly realised I had no Sambal to serve with the rice and vegetables


Woollies is shut.  So here is my spur of the moment and totally made up recipe for Sambal  Manis : Sweet Chilli Sauce.

I am recording it because I am very pleased with the way it came out.

  • 2 cups of Chillies – roughly chopped
  • Garlic  –  plenty
  •  1 tablespoon of palm sugar or dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon tamarind pulp
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Lime Marmalade  (YES!)
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Blend all and bottle.

As this is not cooked I suspect it is not going to keep too long even in the refrigerator, so I am going to try freezing it in cubes for defrosting when required.


Note the spellchecker suggests “Abysmal” for sambal.  It’s not.


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
