Sambal Belacan Mangga

Looking for a hint of heat to accompany your meal? Try our Sambal Belacan Mangga recipe. Fruits are starting to come out in season and we’ve used a blend of young mangoes, which are a little sour, to balance and the spiciness of chillies. The different types of chillies result in a balanced flavour, but you may want to adjust it to your taste….. our version is pretty spicy.
