Notes

1. If you don’t like more spiciness, reduce the number of dried red chilies.

2. Small onions or shallots give a good taste to this sambal. If it is hard to find use the large onion.

3. After adding the onions, don’t bash them for a long time because coconut sambal is tastier when onion pieces locate here and there.
