You know, Sambal Ulek is a very common ingredient in Swedish cooking nowadays. I have a favorite brand, but it would be interesting, though, making a homemade Sambal Ulek.

I am sure "Ayam Petis" tastes wonderful. The ingredients are wellknown in Sweden. Well, maybe not shrimp paste. I don´t believe I am able to purchase that at my local storekeeper.
