How to use Sambal in Indonesian Recipes

Indonesia is an island nation made of around 6,000 islands, resulting in countless regional recipes and culinary traditions. Sambal, however, is enjoyed all over Indonesia. The spicy condiment is made of chilli peppers and has over 200 variants – and there are just as many ways to use it. Here are some of our favourite ways to use this Indonesian chilli paste.
  • Spice up your breakfast. You don’t have to be cooking Indonesian recipes to use sambal. Use it as a hot sauce over fried eggs or stir it into shakshuka to spice up the most important meal of the day.
  • Whip up a tasty Indonesian marinade. Give your next summer barbeque an Indonesian twist. Sambal is the perfect ingredient to add to a marinade if you can handle its Spicy flavours. The chilli paste will thicken the marinade, allowing it to better stick to the meat, and is perfectly paired with chicken skewers, ribs or chicken wings.
  • Try out an authentic sambal stir-fry. For a more traditional way to use sambal, add it to an Indonesian stir-fry. Stir in the chilli paste while frying the aromatics like onion and garlic to bring out the flavours of the sambal.
