Sambal Terasi


Is it possible, can we possibly or should we put our Malaysian Sambal Belacan side by side to Sambal Terasi (Sambal Belacan), aka Indonesian Belacan Sambal? If you are asking me, I won't deny. Why shouldn't we by the way (Kangkung Belacan & Ikan Belacan)? After all, belacan is terasi and terasi is a popularity for our Malaysian local dishes (Stingray Sambal, Nyonya Fish Sambal, Sambal Sotong & Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin)? Moreover, you are now speaking to a belacan queen. Yes me alright. I so love  belacan into savory dishes and sambal belacan by itself, trust me, I can have sambal belacan every day for my rice meals (Nyonya Steamed Fish, Sardine Masak Cili Padi, Asam Pedas & Sambal Udang Petai). Alright guys, enough said I suppose on belacan and lets now move on to Sambal Terasi recipe. Pretty much the same ingredients as our sambal belacan and its not like a magical or out of this world recipe. Those ingredients listed below, mainly birds eye chillies and terasi being the central ingredients and then, we need the seasoning from palm sugar, lime juice and salt (Ikan Balado, Dried Shrimp Sambal & Gado Gado). 


To make
Ingredients (more or less)
10 red chilies
2-3 chili padi (optional)
1 inch belacan/shrimp paste (roasted)
3-4 shallots
Some palm sugar
1 lime - extract juice
Salt (only if needed)
Method
Except for lime juice, pound/process the rest of the ingredients.
Remove the paste and mix in lime juice and salt.
Enjoy with your meal and store the balance in the fridge.

  15. Hi Nava, one of the most addictive and appetizing sambal belachan. And the best way is to pound manually. Nice click!

    Have a nice day.
