This spicy Southeast Asian chile sauce is a Malaysian staple made from RawSpiceBar's freshly ground blend of hot red chile peppers, salt and sometimes vinegar. Sambal is an Indonesian term that refers to a sauce made with chile peppers, and can include a variety of secondary ingredients. Oelek refers to the mortar and pestle used to make this type of sambal. Compared to sriracha, sambal oelek is less acidic and lacks a strong presence of vinegar, so you can add heat to a dish without impacting the overall flavor. Sambal packs a fiery punch and consists of a slightly thicker, slightly chunkier sauce with chile pepper seeds included throughout.
