Sambal Tauco – Yellow Bean Sauce Sambal Recipe

Ingredients :

  • 1/4 cup (70 g) yellow bean sauce (tauco) or miso
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) thick coconut milk

Spice Paste

  • 3 green finger-length chilies, deseeded
  • 4 shallots, peeled
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, thick bottom third only, outer layers discarded, inner part bruised
  • 2 salam leaves
  • 1 tablespoon tamarind juice
  • 1 teaspoon shaved palm sugar or dark brown sugar

Method :

  1. Make the Spice Paste by grinding the chilies, shallots and garlic to a smooth paste in a mortar or blender, adding a little oil if necessary to keep the mixture turning. Heat the oil in a wok over medium high heat and stir-fry the ground paste with all the other ingredients until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Add the yellow bean sauce or miso and stir-fry for 1 more minute. Reduce the heat to low, add the coconut milk, mix well and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring until the sambal is thickened. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool, then serve in small bowls. This sambal keeps for a week in the refrigerator.
