Sambal Tumis Telur Puyuh

Sambal Tumis is the most versatile dish I know. You can cook it with quail eggs, ikan bilis, chicken eggs, squid, prawns, chicken, beef or anything actually. You add lemongrass & galangal and it's suddenly called Terutup! Remove the sugar, and it's Asam Pedas! A truly magical dish using very few ingredients. You can have it with white rice, Nasi Lemak, dip bread or cream crackers in it - everything goes with the Sambal Tumis!

Sambal Tumis Kerang Teluk Chempedak

I remember eating the most delicious Sambal Tumis Kerang on the beach of Teluk Chempedak, Kuantan. A humongous hundred-year-old tree hung above tables packed with people enjoying divine Nasi Lemak for breakfast with white sands of the beach as flooring. The whole environment plus the morning sea breeze added on to the flavour of the Nasi Lemak that we had. This is my recreation of the Sambal Tumis Kerang Teluk Chempedak.

Sambal Tomato

Frankly, I love this sambal much more than our regular sambal belacan. Pan frying the ingredients first, in oil and allowing the flavours to develop makes this Sambal Tomato much much richer in taste and the tomatoes somehow make it taste 'fresh'! Pounding it with the pestle & mortar combines all the flavours beautifully! This sambal is best dipped with long beans, deep fried aubergines, fresh julienne cucumbers, deep-fried tofu & tempe. Simply delicious!

Sambal Hitam Pahang

Sambal Hitam Belimbing most likely came about when there is an abundance of belimbing buluh. This recipe was created to utilize these fruits rather than have it put to waste. This sambal is specifically well known in a few regions in the state of Pahang, namely Temerloh, Jerantut, Raub & Kuala Lipis. The name is reflected by the colour of the belimbing after being boiled for a length of time. This is my favourite sambal due to its sourness, spiciness and the crunchiness of the anchovies.
