ExploreFoods – Making Sambal 

Dates: 2 & 16 March

Times: 2.00pm – 3.00pm & 3.30pm – 4.30pm

What better way is there to enter the world of Nyonya cuisine, than to witness a demonstration on how to make Sambal? A quintessential condiment in Southeast Asia, including Peranakan foods, come see this chilli paste prepared in its traditional form with a variety of fresh spices put under pestle and mortar.
