The series of sambal hasn’t been ended yet. Enjoy this Sambal Tomat with Be Pasih Mepanggang, Sambal Matah and warmed cooked rice as well. I finally did post all the parts of Be Pasih Mepanggang.

In this recipe, I didn’t use regular red chillies, I used dried new Mexico chilies and soaked them. Dried new Mexico chilies have a brighter color than the regular red chillies.
