3. Delicious in chicken wraps / burgers / sandwiches etc.

4. Keep sambal in a jar, it will keep for few weeks in the fridge.

    I made this with red chillies only and a mix of chillies.  Both versions are delicious!  My family and guest love them. Thanks for uploading the sambal recipe using the TM.
