Sambel Ibu Dongeng (Mrs Story Teller Chili Paste)

>> Tuesday, April 8, 2008

Since I called my hubby The Story Teller (Si Tukang Dongeng), my best friend Nana calls me as Mrs Story Teller (Ibu Dongeng). When I told her about this chili which supposed to be Sambel Bu Rudy (Mrs Rudy Chili Paste), she told me to name it Sambel Ibu Dongeng. It sounds good, doesn't it?

The original version of Sambel Bu Rudy was roughly grind, but mine or better said Sambel Ibu Dongeng, was finely grind. My chopper did it! But if you look carefully to the picture, you still can see some whole chilies inside, that's because I stopped chopping by the time I saw my chopper has mad it puree :))

I modified the recipe as well. The modification that I made were using the oil from frying the shrimps; adding tiny shrimps called rebon; adding fried shrimps in the end. It turned out very good, but to eat this chili paste is risky. You'll experience your lips double in size, mouth and eyes watery, stomach burn and will spend more time in the toilet. But if you are really a hot chili lover like me, you have to try this one. That's the reason why I used my Risiko game board as the background :-D (Risiko is a game about strategy to conquer the world. Once you play, you'll forget the time. It's really a fun game to play with your friends).
