Sambal Goreng – Green Papaya Sambal

Literally means “fried sambal”. It is a mix of ingredients including crisp fried shallots, red and green chillies, salt, briefly stir-fried in oil. It can be made into a whole different dish by adding other ingredients, such as in this recipe where green papaya is added. The green papaya sambal is pictured here with fragrant rice and shredded chicken.
