Sambal abah's style


2 days had passed in this Holy month of Ramadhan. How was it? Whatever it is, I pray that we will be blessed by HIM and may we be rewarded with the best.... Amin...

P/s : What's this about Onion at RM70.00? Find out here.


When I posted this photo in my Facebook, a few had asked for the recipe. I had seen my abah making this before and the way we love his sambal belacan is beyond words... We miss you dearly, abah....

But I made a slight adjustment to abah's version by adding the cherry tomatoes.

Sambal Belacan


Ingredients :

2 fresh red chillies
2 shallots ~ sliced
1 garlic ~ sliced
1 inch Belacan
3 cherry tomatoes
Salt - if necessary
a bit of sugar

Method :

1. Fry the Belacan, chillies, shallots and garlic separately.
2. Place the fried ingredients except belacan into a stone mortar.
3. Pound the ingredients. And once they are mashed up, add in belacan, cherry tomatoes, salt and sugar to taste.
4. Remove from the mortar and ready to serve.

Have a safe and great weekend...
