Spicy Pepper Sambal

    This is a sambal from Thailand (Issan). It is a wonderfully garlicky and spicy sambal very similar to hmong eggplant dipping sauce. This is my take on the traditional sambal. I love eating this with sticky rice and ovened broiled meat. Spicy pepper Sambal Preparation: 5 min. Cooking: 20 minutes
