  • Non Veg
  • 45 mins
  • Serves 10
  • Easy



This dish will bring rich, layered flavors and stimulate the taste buds in ways never felt before. It is considered to be the authentic Indonesian sambal, but you don’t have visit an Indonesian restaurant to experience this culinary delight. It can be homemade and still do justice to the flavor and aromatics. The sambal goreng udang uses red bell peppers and red chillis to form a delicious red sauce which can be softened with coconut sugar. If you don’t have much tolerance for red chilies, you can choose the milder ones and not lose much taste. The sauce will then be used to cook shrimp and served alongside vegetables.
