Recipe by Latchy
This is a simple recipe but has a lovely flavour and can be altered by putting in chopped chillies to make it hot, or perhaps some ginger. Good served with some boiled rive and steamed Asian greens

This is SO good. I did use a neutral flavored vegetable oil instead of going for olive oil flavor. I also didn't have sambal oelek, but put in a whole dried chili instead. I may go for two next time. I was afraid the full amounts of palm sugar and honey would be too sweet, but after tasting, decided that this is just right. Thank you very much for sharing this delicious recipe with us.
