Sambal sotong is a signature Malay Peranakan dish which is essentially squid fried with chilli paste. This simple and appetising dish is very common in Malaysian cuisine. The sambal is made of a mixture of chilli peppers, belacan and several spices, herbs and aromatics to bring out the smell and taste of the sambal. This dish is easy to create and goes perfectly with a bowl of fragrant, steaming rice.
