I cooked this sambal tumis few months back. I always have to scratched my head out don't know what to cook for the dinner. I always think simple recipe like steam or stew meat for kids as im not really a good cook. I think my husband sick of the food as he is not the meat lover so i asked him go for vegetarian :o). I told him the way i cooked is suitable for kids. They can't take spicy. Every time i have to browse through blogger's recipe to look for spicy food which is his favourite as well as myself.
I always wanted to cook some curry or sambal food but it is hard for me to learn all the herbs and spices which i found it is too many types. Sometimes i have to google the spice picture. Or i rather buy the premix but still not the good one. I was in wet market to look for galangal. This indian seller doesn't know what is galangal. I also blurred and repeat few times 'galangal lah'. lol..Then he asked in cantonese 'is wong keong' (yellow ginger) or 'lam keong' (blue ginger). Luckily i remember i saw blue ginger stated in Nasilemaklover's blog.
This is my first attempt to cook this sambal. The recipe sourced from Nasilemaklover's blog. Although the process to prepare and cook takes a longer time but what i like is the sambal can keep for a month in the freezer. You can use it whenever you need it.
