Green Chilli Sambal

Here is a very simple recipe for a green chilli sambal. The level of spiciness can be adjusted by the number of chilli padi added - more if you like it spicy, less if you prefer a milder version.

10pcs of green chilli
4-5 pcs of green chilli padi (more if you want it more spicy, less if you prefer is milder)
3-4pcs of shallots, sliced thinly
3pcs of kaffir lime leaves, julienned after centre stalk removed
lime juice

Steam green chilli and chilli padi for about 5 minutes till it softens. Remove and roughly blend in a food processor, or pound it using a mortar and pestle.
Heat up oil with high heat, add the chilli paste, shallots and lime leaves. Reduce heat and keep stirring. Add salt, sugar and lime juice to taste.
