But now that you're following Paleo guidelines maybe you've read the label and decided that it's not for you. Not to worry. You can make sambal at home. With this recipe I'll show you how to do just that.

1

Put all the ingredients into a food processor and mix until it resembles sambal. You can also use a hand blender.

2

At this point the sambal is fairly wet and very spicy.

3

Put the sambal into a small saucepan and cook gently until it has reached the desired consistancy (cooking the sambal also takes out some of the "heat").

4

For a milder sambal you can remove the seeds from the peppers.

5

Pour the sambal into a glass jar and leave to cool.

6

Put the lid on the jar and store in the fridge.
