1 1/2 cups

1 stalk

1 1/2 teaspoons

2 teaspoons

2

4 cloves

1-2 teaspoons

1 teaspoon

1 teaspoon

1 teaspoon

1-2 teaspoons

1 teaspoon

Pork belly

Coconut milk

Lemon grass, bruised

Laos powder

Finely grated fresh ginger

Small onions, finely chopped

Garlic, crushed

Chili powder

Dried shrimp paste (belacan)

Ground cilantro

Ground cumin

Sugar to taste

Salt

Method :
  • Cut the pork, skin and all, into small cubes.

  • Put pork, coconut milk and all other ingredients into a pan and bring slowly to the boil, stirring constantly. This prevents the coconut milk from curdling.

  • Turn heat low and continue to simmer until  pork is tender and liquid almost absorbed, stirring frequently. This takes about 1 hour.

  • Serve with white rice and other accompaniments such as cooling salads because these sambals are very hot.

  • Reduce quantity of chili if a less volcanic result is preferred.
