I can make sambal belacan!!!

I don't eat sambal. Of any kind.

He likes LOVES sambal. Of any kind.

Needless to say, I am very very incapable in making them. Not that I didnt try, I tried so many times and yet it always turned out deficient in some ways.

Until yesterday. I finally found the perfect recipe here. God bless you FOODILICIOUS!

The problem with making sambal is that nobody and i really mean NOBODY could give me a recipe that gives proper measure. It is always a bit of that .. a bit of this.. no real measurement but more like to-taste. Which is a BIG problem for me - cos Ive never eaten it so I dont know how it is supposed to taste like.

Anyway, I tried the recipe from Foodilicious and was very very anxious when Mr Fluff ate it. Dub dab dub dab .. macam tengah tunggu SPM results pulak

and at long last ( and I mean really really long ), my sambal is edible and tasted like sambal. I can make sambal!!! YEE HAA!!!!

So friends... Please find THE magical sambal recipe below..

* 3 Red Chillies
* 1 Green Chillies
* 10 bird chillies (can reduce if prefer less spicy)
* 1 tablespoon belacan (bakar)
* 1 teaspoon sugar
* 1 teaspoon salt

Pound the above until it became a paste

* Squeeze lime juice (1) once done.

I cant stop smiling. Muahahaha.... :D :D :D
