Lucullus Sambal Oelek
Sambal oelek is a red chilli paste popular as a base for many Indonesian, Malaysian and Sri Lankan dishes. ‘Oelek’ is the Dutch spelling of the work ‘ulek’, a stoneware pestle traditionally used to make this chilli paste; and ‘sambal’ just means means sauce.
Sambal oelek brings an enjoyable heat and depth of flavour to marinades, and is a great addition to seafood sauces. Sambal oelek is a very important ingredient in Malaysian dishes – with dishes ranging from sambal-stuffed fish to sambal squid, sambal eggs and sambal beans.
Sambal manis and sambal nasi goreng are also available from the same producer.
