Sambal Empelam

During our trip back to home town, Mamarazzi found these young mangos in the market. She was very happy as it's hard to get these mangos in KL.

She bought 2kg of these fully intend to make pickled mango. She posted up the snap shot of these mango in her Facebook and Uncle Arthur commented that it would be great to make "Sambal Empelam".

Mamarazzi decided to try out the recipe from Uncle Arthur.

Ingredients consists of shredded Mango, cili(if you wish for a extra spicy, please add bird eyes cili), some belacan (shrimp paste) and optional dried shrimps or anchovies.

Pound the cili, dried shrimps and the belacan together till its mashed up. 

Then add the mango pound it a bit.

The end product. Add a bit of sugar to counter the sourness of the mango. Taste great. Mamarazzi ate two plates of rice with these.
For me, I said it's yucky. Surprising why she would wanna eat something that is spicy.

For me, I preferred my glass of Ice-Blended Durian drink.

It's durian season again. Mmmm....durian durian everywhere.
