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!

At that point, I made a decision never to take anything for granted again. This version of Kicap Ayam using tomatoes was my favourite when we were little.

There are so many variations of fondues. My favourite is this Tomato Fondue. The sourness of tomatoes balances so beautifully with the richness & creaminess of the cheese.

So today is the first day of school for my two younger kids, I've prepared the same Spicy Tomato Chicken mum used to make!
