Roti Jala with Sambal Udang
Roti Jala with Sambal Udang pictures (1 of 4)

Sambal Udang or prawn sambal is a very popular Malaysian dish and there are many different recipes available. The one I love the most is my late mother’s sambal udang recipe, a very simple prawn sambal dish that I will share with you all one day. My second favorite will have to be my friend Salt and Turmeric’s authentic Malay sambal udang tumis (prawn sambal), which tastes different but equally delicious. Prawn sambal is always my most requested dish whenever I visit F.

So, you could imagine how overjoyed I was when F gave me a bottle of her sambal tumis a few weeks ago–all done and ready-to-go in a bottle. Naturally, the first thing I did after I came home from F’s was cooking up a nice serving of prawn sambal to go with my favorite roti jala (lacy pancakes).
