Fire Hot Chilli Paste (Sambal) - Indonesian Sauce

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by reya doucette

I found this one on the net by Larry Haftl. Sambal is to Indonesian cuisine what salsa is to Mexican cooking: a fiery hot condiment served at every meal. I have used Habanaro peppers instead of the Indonesian dried chillies and it is 'inferno' hot
