Sambal Oelek BALI KITCHEN, 115 g
Bright and spicy Indonesian flavour
Sambal is an Indonesian chilli sauce or paste, typically made from a mixture of a variety of chilli peppers with secondary ingredients, such as shrimp paste, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, palm sugar, and lime juice. Sambal is an Indonesian loan-word of Javanese origin (sambel). It originated from the culinary traditions of Indonesia, and is also an integral part of the cuisines of Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Brunei and Singapore. It has also spread through overseas Indonesian populations to the Netherlands and Suriname.
The composition of sambal oelek is almost identical to sriracha, except for the fact that it contains no sugar. While this lack of sugar gives sambal oelek a distinctly different taste and texture from sriracha. The absence of sugar allows the other flavours to stand out.
