Condiments in Indonesian cooking are just as important as the savory dishes they are served with. Meals come with a small platter of three or four different, flavored, textured, and colored sambals (condiments) to taste. The soy sauce in this condiment gives it a salty flavor, with pungent and sour notes.

NotesMind Refresher: Stand straight, relax, and breathe normally; appreciate whatever is happening.
