      Nice to hear that you liked it. We make it as a very spicy sambol. So, I gave that amount… Btw, Sambol is something we make raw actually. But again there are some sambols like potato sambol & sausage sambol, which are cooked. You can check under my name to get some idea about sambols :):):)

      Nice to hear that it turned out well. And abt the sambol u need ural. Yet can make with dry grinder. Do not grind after adding coconut. Just mix well with hand.
