Lara Lee—chef and author of "Coconut & Sambal: Recipes from My Indonesian Kitchen"—is serving up something essential to Indonesian cooking: Sambal. There are over 350 recorded sambal recipes across Indonesia, and Lara shows you how to make two of her favorites: cooked tomato sambal, and a raw, citrusy, sliced lemongrass sambal. Tomato Sambal is a spicy tomato relish packed with red chiles, cherry tomatoes, shallots, and garlic, which can accompany a traditional Indonesian meal or spice up your next hamburger. Sambal Matah is the most iconic sambal of Bali, and its sliced lemongrass, lime, red chiles, and ginger pair perfectly with steak, fish, or roasted pork.
