Things To Know About Sambal Mangga Muda Recipe.

Indonesians are quite popular worldwide for their spicy cuisine, one type of condiment, in particular, stands out from the others. Sambal is a type of Indonesian chili sauce, usually consisting of chili peppers (Cabai Rawit/Bird’s eye chili pepper), oils, and other regional ingredients. Sambal is arguably the most versatile Indonesian traditional food in existence, with every region in Indonesia having its own variant of Sambal.

Historically, sambal is invented during the colonization of Indonesia, during which, sambal was not as popular as it is today. The exact origin of sambal is unknown, but it was due to the Portuguese and Dutch bringing the plant to Indonesia (Dutch East Indies back then), that sambal really started to grow and spread throughout the country.

Sambal Mangga Muda is a variant of sambal that utilizes the flesh of a young (unripe) mango fruit in addition to the regular ingredients of sambal. This type of sambal is popular in the western region of Java. The acidity of the mango pairs perfectly with the spiciness of the chili. Sambal mangga muda is often served together with seafood, like gurami sambal manga (fried carp with mango chili sauce). The texture is also a big reason why this variant of sambal is enjoyed, the somewhat hard and crunchy, watery texture of the unripe mango is very fresh and leaves you wanting for more!
