Hot Pepper Paste Like Sambal Oelek

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Boomette

From Ricardo. I made it tonight and it's very good. It can be used in asian dishes, mexican... For a spicy dip, mix 1/2 cup plain yogurt with 1/4 cup of homemade hot pepper paste or 1 tablespoon sambal oelek store-bought. Delicious in sandwiches and burgers.

You have no idea how grateful I'm for this recipe. Hot sauce is scarcely available here and when it is it comes at a very high price. Not being able to have it was a big big problem for me.Reminds me of a chili sauce I used to buy in Vancouver, I think it was a Vietnamese sauce and I couldn't find it ever since. It was in a clear plastic bottle and had a green cap. Thank you so much for this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In food processor, mix all ingredients until you have a lumpy paste. Put in a saucepan (I used a small saucepan and it was perfect). Bring to boil and let simmer slowly about 15 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  2. Pour in a jar and let cool. It's good up to one month in the fridge.
