Sambal Tomat



Sambal Tomat is an Indonesian tomato-based condiment.

There are two versions, fresh and cooked.

Both are made from tomatoes, red birds eye chiles, shrimp paste, lime juice, shallots, garlic and oil.

For the cooked version, the ingredients are sautéed briefly, then the tomatoes and shrimp paste added and simmered for a bit, then the mixture is zapped briefly with the lime juice in a blender to a relatively coarse texture, and salt added to taste.

For the fresh version, the ingredients are just ground into together into a paste. This version is more likely to have Kaffir Lime Leaves in it as well.
