Dad’s Katta Sambol

Katta sambol
This could also be called my father’s red hot ‘ow! ow! ow!’ sambol. Actually it’s not that hot and it’s delicious with bread and cheese as I just had for lunch. It’s another Dad recipe put together by experimentation and a lot of taste tests during cooking.

What he used:
* 100g crushed chillies
* 1 red onion, chopped
* 2 teaspoons salt
* 1 teaspoon sugar
* 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
* lime/lemon juice to taste
* 1-2 tablespoons olive oil

What he did:
Fried the onion in olive oil until translucent or it lost the ‘raw’ look. Added chilli, salt and balsamic vinegar. Stirred the lot until well-reddened. Then added sugar, and after taking off fire, added lemon juice to taste.
