Sambal nanas

Actually, sambal or hot food is not my thing.  As a breastfeeding mom and with 2 preschoolers around me, my everyday food is far enough from chillies. That's why the idfb challenge this time (with the theme of Indonesian sambal) is a bit hard for me. But it's not a challenge when it is so easy, right? ^^
So, this sambal nanas is my entry for the idfb chalenge # 4. It is said that this sambal originally comes from East Kalimantan.  A bit sour and sweet from pineapple and hot from chillies makes this sambal tastes unique, a perfect match for a grilled fish.


 





Ingredients:
10 red chillies
6 bird's eye chillies
5 shallots
2 onions
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp shrimp paste 
1 small pineapple, peeled and cubed
2 tbs oil for stir frying




Methods:
  • Stir fry all the chillies, shallots and onions until wilted.
  • Ground them together with salt, sugar, and shrimp paste until smooth or becomes paste.
  • Add the pineapple. Mix them until well combined.
