The series of sambal hasn’t been ended yet. Enjoy this Sambal Tomat with Be Pasih Mepanggang, Sambal Matah and warmed cooked rice as well. I finally did post all the parts of Be Pasih Mepanggang.

In this recipe, I didn’t use regular red chillies, I used dried new Mexico chilies and soaked them. Dried new Mexico chilies have a brighter color than the regular red chillies.

  4. tigerfish January 14, 2008 At 3:47 AMThis already sounds so appetizing. Do you think I can use canned whole tomatoes to substitute?Reply
  5. Andaliman January 14, 2008 At 7:35 AMI never try using canned tomato for sambal before, it can be ok, but the taste might be different.Reply
