A recipe for homemade Sambal Oelek, the classic chili paste used for cooking, made with a variety of ground chili peppers, vinegar and salt. It is ideal for seasoning noodle dishes and enhancing the flavors of sauces.
This sambal is actually mum's version. You can replace the french onion (bawang bakung) with bombay onion (bawang merah besar) or shallots (bawang merah biasa). Can be prepared the day before you make your nasi lemak.
