07.10.2013 - Batam. Grilling up some yummilicious Ayam Bakar for lunch with my son. Nothing's better than a good sambal to go with the Ayam Bakar. This time my sambal a bit too much oil...duh...but taste absolutely delicious. This sambal actually can accompany with any meat dishes.
There are two ways of making sambal either to cook them all in a pan or fried chilies / shallots first and ground with a blender in modern way or with stone mortar or Pestle in a traditional way.
I am so lazy to to cook my sambal just like how my MIL taught me to fried chilies/shallots first and ground with stone morter. My quickest way of making sambal is blend everything and cook them all up! done. but of cos the slow an steady sambal ground with stone mortar like my MIL did is way more delicious!
