Sambal. I quite know sambal at the back and in front of my cooking hands. Sambal. Made before like countless times (Ayam Masak Merah
& Nyonya Fish Sambal
). Really, sambal is not a confusing cooking matter for me. In fact, sambal is my favourite. What else should I say when sambal is like smooth sailing cooking for me. However, this Sambal Udang is not the usual (Sambal Tumis Ikan Pari
& Sambal Petai Udang Kering
). Not at all. Why? Because its my own. My own coined recipe. What's the difference compared to the rest of the sambal udang? I think I should let you decide. Sambal Udang. Super delicious. Super inviting. Super hunger triggering.
