Tomato and chilli salad for your sambal spread

Technically, sambals are spicy relishes made from fruit or veggies and served with curry, so we put together this fresh and spicy tomato and chilli salad!


½ cup vegetable oil
1 onion, peeled and grated
1 tsp crushed garlic
2 dried red chillies
1 fresh curry leaf
1 tbsp coriander seeds
2 tsp black mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp paprika
1½ cups chopped tomatoes
¼ cup white vinegar
1 tsp salt

1. Heat ¼ cup oil in a pan and fry onion, garlic, chillies and curry leaf for 3 minutes.
2. In a dry pan, toast the spices for a few seconds until fragrant. Crush with a mortar and pestle.
3. Toss the tomatoes with the garlic mixture, spice mixture, vinegar, salt and remaining oil.
