Recipe Description
Sambal Tumis is a spicy and popular Malaysian condiment. The term sambal tumis is derived from the Malay word "sambal" which means chilli paste. This spicy condiment is made from shrimp paste, ground chillies, shallots, garlic, and onion. The ingredients are mixed with a little water and then mashed to form a paste. The sambal tumis is typically served with shrimp or fish to give the main course a flavourful kick and make it more appealing to the taste buds. It can also be used as a dip for other vegetarian dishes such as fried tofu or tempeh.
