Garlic Sambal

Garlic Sambal

My own original recipe.
Prep Time: 10 minutes / Cook Time: 15 minutes


3 to 5 cayenne peppers (more if you like) - remove stem
3 shallots
1 small tomato
1 tbsp minced garlic (Lee Kum Kee brand)
1 tbsp olive oil or vegetable oil
Salt  and sugar to taste


Peel the shallots, and place them on a small plate along with the cayenne peppers and tomatoes, then steam them for 10 minutes.  Grind or blend the steamed shallots, cayenne pepper, salt, some sugar and tomato until smooth but not too smooth if you are using a food processor.

Mix the minced garlic into the blended ingredients, now called sambal, and heat a tbsp oil until hot then pour it into the sambal.  This sambal is best for cooking or to serve with noodles soup.
