Sambal : Indonesia Staple

Sambal, which the dictionary describes as a hot relish in Southeast-Asian cuisine made of vegetables or fruit and spices, is not merely a condiment that goes with food for Indonesians.

Sambal is sauce typically made from a variety of chili peppers and secondary ingredients such as shrimp paste, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, shallot, scallion, sugar, lime juice, and rice vinegar or other vinegars.

Various recipes of sambals usually are served as hot and spicy condiments for dishes such as ikan bakar (grilled fish),
ikan goreng (fried fish), ayam goreng (fried chicken), and soto. Sambal is an Indonesian loan-word of Javanese origin (sambel).
