Things to know About Sambal Tomat Recipe.

Sambal Tomat, or Tomato Chili Paste, is an alternative type of sambal for those who can’t stand the heat of the regular sambal. By incorporating tomatoes into the sambal, the flavor profile becomes sweet and spicy, with a hint of savoriness from the umami content inside the tomatoes.

Like the sambal bawang, this can be served raw (sambal tomat mentah) or fried (sambal tomat matang). Either way, this type of sambal is the perfect choice if you want to experience spicy food for the first time!
